When we spend so much of our lives trying to avoid getting pregnant, it is natural to assume that conceiving is a piece of cake. Often this is the case, but sometimes couples need some support and help.
Around one-third of couples in which the woman is over 35 have fertility problems and this rises to two-thirds when the woman is over 40. However, age is just one factor and sexually transmitted infections, smoking, being overweight as well as underweight, drinking and stress plays very important part in fertility.
Nordic Nutritionist approach is to investigate carefully what the root cause that may be the reason the client has not been able to become pregnant or hold a successful pregnancy. My fertility and pregnancy support methods are invasive-free and my goal is to help through diet and supplements. Testing and alternative treatments may be recommended as a part of the treatment plan.
