I see you all fertility warriors! You have been trying to conceive for months or years and may feel that time is not on your side. If you have just booked a consult with a fertility clinic, it may take a couple of months until you have your first appointment with your doctor. You will be asked to complete an investigative cycle which includes blood work, ultrasound and a sonohysterogram on various days of your cycle.
All this comes with some waiting time, feelings of overwhelm, anxiety and you may feel all alone in this journey. The good news is, nutrition and what you eat a few months prior to any fertility procedures can help prepare your body for treatment. Not to worry, at Dahlia Nutrition, we are here for you.

Improve your egg and sperm quality.
Manage blood sugar and regulate your period if you are living with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Prepare your body for pregnancy when undergoing Intrauterine insemination (IUI).
