I created The Fertility Companion to guide you through your personal fertility journey. Whether you’re at the beginning of a daunting path or have been travelling this direction for some time, you have a choice about how you want to continue. I want to show you how I evolved to thrive on my journey and share the joys and disappointments along the way. Personal fertility challenges in recent years motivated me to dig deep, to really make the most of the skills I had honed over a decade as a nutritional therapist and yoga teacher.


I had to nourish myself. I had to find a way through the fear and overwhelm while optimising my fertility as I worked towards the dream of becoming a parent.
