Welcome

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.

 

I’m Ruth McKenna and I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist & Yoga Teacher. I’m delighted you’ve taken the time to visit my website, please stay connected by signing up for my FREE Sanity Guide to Fertility Treatment on this page. You’ll receive regular nourishment nuggets from me, to share with you my personal experiences of what helps and to teach you practical skills for building resilience, nourishing relationships & optimizing your fertility. You can read more about me here.

“Ruth’s no nonsense approach helped me to understand that there were many things I didn’t know about food, stress and the effects on hormone balance. Not only have my hormones calmed down, I have more energy, my skin has improved, and I now understand how to achieve balanced hormones and optimal health.”

Soften your gaze, make space for joy

Soften your gaze, make space for joy

Picture this. A few years ago, I was at my weekly yoga class. It was a couple of weeks before Christmas and the intensity of seasonal planning, parties, shopping and work pressure was building. At the end of the class, our teacher offered us a very simple practice....

This journey hurts…

This journey hurts…

It hurts, this journey. It hurts and then it eases and then, like a smack in the face it hurts again. I didn’t expect that. I thought it would be easier to process, move on and feel optimistic again. Get on with my joyful life. As I get older and wiser, I’m learning...
