I'm an Accredited Practicing Dietitian, with a masters degree in nutrition, specialising in fertility, pregnancy, postnatal nutrition and women’s health, hormonal and reproductive concerns. I'm also a Mama to a cheeky little monkey and passionate about helping other mamas and mamas-to-be nourish themselves and give their babies the best possible start to life.
My dream of starting a practice focused solely on women’s health and prenatal nutrition was born out my own experiences during my fertility and pregnancy journey, when I became aware of the lack of credible, evidenced-based nutrition counselling and information available to women trying to conceive, and during and after pregnancy, despite the abundant research in these areas.
We have strong evidence that our nutrition status and diet can have a huge impact on our fertility and can in some instances reduce the need for medical fertility treatments, and yet so many women are not offered nutrition therapy as part of their fertility workup. We also know that our diet in the lead up to conception, during pregnancy and while breastfeeding impacts our baby’s genes, and therefore it’s lifelong health, and yet most women are confused with exactly what they should be eating and which nutrients they need to focus on during this crucial period. Nutrition can also have a huge impact on our symptoms and quality of life, long-term health and fertility and pregnancy outcomes for women living with women’s health, hormonal and reproductive concerns.
With a master's degree in Dietetics and extensive clinical hospital experience, I'm able to provide expert evidenced-based nutrition advice and coaching so that you can feel confident and empowered to nourish yourself and give your baby the best possible start to life.
I also still work as a clinical dietitian at St Vincent's Hospital, one of Victoria's biggest and busiest hospitals, where I provide nutrition therapy across a number of medical specialty units. This means I have the clinical skills and experience to provide medical nutrition therapy to help people improve their health and manage medical conditions through nutrition.
