Welcome

My name is Ro Huntriss. I’m a Registered Dietitian with over 10 years of experience and I am a specialist in fertility nutrition.

I’m delighted that you’re here as it is likely to mean that you share my passion in this wonderful and powerful field of fertility nutrition.

A fertility journey can be an incredibly emotive one. Some things are within one’s control, while other things aren’t. However, the good news is that diet and lifestyle choices can have a significant effect on several aspects of the fertility journey for men and women.

There is a wealth of misinformation regarding fertility nutrition. That is why, as trusted healthcare professionals, people need our help.

Introduction

Fertility Basics

First we will go through some fertility basics including the fertile window, the different types of fertility treatment available as well as factors that can influence fertility. 

Module 1

Dietary Patterns for Fertility

Here we will cover the evidence for dietary patterns that support fertility. We will take a deep dive into each of the main dietary elements; fruit and veg, carbohydrates and whole grains, protein, fats, milk and dairy. 

Module 2

Nutrients for Fertility

In this module we discuss the naturally occurring nutrients found in food, also included is the evidence to show how they support fertility outcomes for both men and/or women. We cover antioxidants, folate, selenium, zinc, iron, iodine, choline, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6. 

Module 3

Supplements

Fertility supplements can be a minefield. Here we showcase the evidence to support supplement recommendations for those who are trying to conceive. You will learn what supplements have a strong evidence base behind them, for both men and women, as well as in which scenarios certain supplements can support fertility outcomes. 

Module 4

Lifestyle

Nutrition is just one piece of the fertility puzzle which is why it is incredibly important that other modifiable risk factors are also considered. This module covers topics such as sleep, stress, caffeine, physical activity, alcohol, environmental toxins and medications and their impacts on fertility.

Module 5

Body Weight

Body weight at both end of the spectrum can impact fertility. This module showcases the research behind BMI recommendations for fertility as well as IVF, what they are and why. It also guides you through supporting clients with healthy weight gain and weight loss for fertility.

Module 6

Managing Specific Scenarios

This module takes you through how to support clients with specific needs. It pulls together the evidence for how to support clients within the following contexts; unexplained infertility, improving egg quality, supporting successful implantation, managing low ovarian reserve, preparing for IVF, sustaining a healthy pregnancy, managing PCOS and endometriosis as well as supporting male fertility and specific sperm parameters.

"Cannot recommend enough!"

“I really enjoyed this fertility nutrition training. It is set out clearly and simply which has made it much easier to learn. It’s also great that you can review and download all information. Some really great information and a massive collection of references that can be reviewed also.

Ro has also been very helpful with any questions.

Cannot recommend enough!”

Evelyn Kennedy, Registered Dietitian 

"I loved the course with very easy to follow PowerPoint slides and a wealth of references to back it all up."

“I loved the course with very easy to follow PowerPoint slides and a wealth of references to back it all up.

Studying for this course was great for consolidating my knowledge, particularly on PCOS and increasing my confidence. I work in weight management so hoping to utilise my new found knowledge in supporting individuals with sub fertility which is one of our priority referral criteria.”

Marie Bird, Registered Dietitian

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much. It was great to be able to do it in my own time, around work and family life. I did this over several weeks. I love the fact I can go back whenever, to refresh knowledge and understanding too.

It was really useful to have this knowledge in my tool kit recently, as I had a nutrition support patient who was wanting to be eligible for IVF in general clinic. It was great to be able to flick back and pick key points out to shape the advice and intervention. Thank you for all the amazing work you have done, and continue to do in this area, and for making it available.”

Gemma Rix, Registered Dietitian

"I absolutely loved this fertility course. From start to finish"

“I absolutely loved this fertility course. From start to finish it was well laid out, easy to understand and has a great evidence base.

I am now fertility bonkers and can’t wait to get stuck in with helping clients to reach their fertility goals!”

Cristy Dean, Registered Dietitian

"The Fertility Nutrition Course fully met and exceeded my expectations."

“The Fertility Nutrition Course by Fertility Dietitian UK fully met and exceeded my expectations. I now feel confident in my ability to work with clients through their fertility journey and I am excited to get started. What I really enjoyed about this course was that everything was divided into very clear modules and lessons. Whenever I wish to refresh my knowledge in a certain area I can easily access the relevant information. I am also delighted to have lifelong access to this course and all the references to the research papers and studies. This will be invaluable moving forward as no client is the same and everyone’s fertility journey can be so different. Working in private practice in particular I also find having organised information and resources extremely time-saving! Thank you Ro for putting so much work into the course.”

Maria Lucey, Registered Dietitian 

"This course has exceeded my expectations."

“A well structured course providing the latest evidence of how changes in diet and lifestyle (including measures that may inhibit) can improve fertility and help clients create healthy long-term habits.

The course goes into great detail enabling you to provide sound nutrition advice to clients considering dietary patterns, specific nutrients, supplements, lifestyle and weight recommendations required to help those clients who are trying to conceive naturally or by assisted reproductive techniques (ART).

Each module consists of various sections which makes it easy to dip in and out to complete in your own time. The slides are clear, concise and superbly supported with relevant research and guidelines. The final module pulls all the information together to apply and support clients (individually or couple) in various clinical scenarios which will be extremely useful.

I really enjoyed this course and managed to complete it alongside my busy day job. I wanted to challenge myself, by adding something new to my existing practice, enabling me to broaden my client base. This course has exceeded my expectations. Ro was always so attentive, helpful, supportive and prompt in responding to questions, even at times when you would least expect a response.”

Lisa Rowlands, Registered Dietitian

"I would definitely recommend it to any healthcare professional with an interest in fertility nutrition"

“Excellent course. Really good format, videos not too long which helped to stay focused. All information discussed was backed up by references which was fantastic.

The fact it was pre-recorded made it easy to do in your own time and at your own pace.

I would definitely recommend it to any health care professional with an interest in fertility nutrition.”

Lynette McKnight, Registered Dietitian

"This course ticked all the boxes for me"

As a Dietitian working in the fertility space, this course ticked all the boxes for me. It’s a great course from start to finish; it was informative, practical, and well-referenced. It’s an affordable course compared to other courses on the market, and it’s self-paced, which was great for me, with lifetime access which is a real bonus. One of my favourite parts of the course was the last module. Ro consolidated the evidence with practical guidance on supporting patients in different health scenarios, which has been super helpful in my practice so far. Thanks for a great course

Naomi O’Connor, Registered Dietitian

"Extremely informative, clear and concise"

I found this Fertility Nutrition course extremely informative, clear and concise. It covered a lot of the questions I had and I appreciated the fact that Ro did not demonise any food or promote extreme diet advice. I thoroughly enjoyed working my way through this!

"I realized the quality and dedication Ro had in creating the course"

I started Ro’s fertility course and since the beginning I realized the quality and dedication she had in creating the course. Always bringing articles related to the topic and relating it to the clinical practice of couples who face difficulty in conceiving. The course brought new perspectives of practice in my care and opened up opportunities for reflection and learning to always bring the best to my patients, and the course was certainly an enjoyable experience.

How long do I have to complete the course?

Is this course good value for money?

ABSOLUTELY! The value of this course is actually much higher than the listed price. The reason for keeping the cost down, and lower than other fertility nutrition courses, is to increase accessibility and not to price people out.

Using the PayPal pay in 3 option for UK residents is a great way to spread costs at no extra cost.
