Lizzy Meikle BSc (Hons) MBANT CNHC Reg
I work with couples and individuals to improve their health and fertility through diet and lifestyle. My guidance is personalised to you, your circumstances, any health concerns and fertility issues you have. My advice is evidence-based to support you through an often difficult time.
Diet impacts on hormonal health and fertility. Certain nutrients and food groups appear to have a greater effect on reproductive health, however there is very little in the way of official guidelines on what preconception advice should be offered. Working together, I will guide and support you in being the healthiest you can be whether trying to conceive naturally or through fertility treatment.
To find out more about how I work please get in touch via the website or on the number below for a chat. We can then discuss what you're hoping to achieve and how I can help.
If you're happy to continue, I offer 1:1 individual sessions or programs of three (or more) sessions taken over a 3-4 month period. Alternatively I can tailor a program to suit your individual needs and requirements. Consultations take place in clinic rooms in Worcestershire and Warwickshire or via Skype if that is more convenient for you.
