Women’s Health & Fertility


Optimising your nutrition to help you and your partner to conceive can be of great benefit. Sophie offers a full assessment of both of your diets and advice on ensuring your diet is optimal for conception.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition affecting up to 1 in 10 women and is the leading cause of infertility in the UK. It can be difficult to balance your cravings and emotions when you have PCOS. Luckily with support and dietary change, the symptoms of PCOS can be managed effectively.


Sophie can offer a dietary advice package for pregnancy including one 60 minute appointment aimed to optimise health during pregnancy and three 45 minute follow up appointments after the birth to aid in recovery from the birth and optimising nutrition during breastfeeding or sleepless nights, followed by 2 45 minute appointments to support the new mother in regaining her pre pregnancy figure.



About Your Appointment


Your initial appointment will be booked for 60 minutes and will include a full assessment of your diet and health and exploration of your goals. Based on this assessment you will be provided with tailored advice and supporting literature and your diet may be analysed with software. You will be offered ongoing support between consultations via e-mail, text or phone if needed and follow up appointments will be booked for 45 minutes.


As a record of your consultation Sophie will write you a letter detailing your appointment and the plans that have been made. This can be shared with your GP, consultant or other healthcare professionals at your discretion.
