Nutrition services for improving fertility & preparing for pregnancy:
If you are already pregnant-please see my page just for you.
You can choose one of the following or a combination of both:
- A one-on-one nutrition therapy session focused on improving fertility and helping you to prepare for pregnancy. It starts with a health questionnaire you have previously completed for me. Then together we do detailed health history. I will also review any testing you have had done. Next, I perform a functional physical evaluation. A functional exam will tell me what organs are under stress. I also perform muscle testing if you like. I use all the above to determine what steps you need to take to get your body ready for pregnancy and to improve your fertility. OR
- Online or phone nutritional counseling. OR
- Classes on nutrition and fertility for you or for a group. OR
- A 6 week group support program called Feed Your Fertile BodyTM. This program will help you to make nourishing food choices. I will be encouraging you to add foods you like best from a wide range of choices. These foods will help you nourish your body and spirit as you build your fertility. (See below for more information.)

Preparing for our second pregnancy really started a year before we actually got pregnant. We were pregnant by the end of the Feed Your Fertile Body!™ course! (Although I didn’t know it until after it was completed). The program helped me rebuild my body from my last pregnancy 2 years before and gave me the knowledge I needed to feed my body nutrient dense food. It also reminded me of the lifestyle (less worrying and requesting help with childcare!) necessary for an optimal conceiving environment. I learned that consuming fat is important to get pregnant and love the abundance of recipes for new foods – I felt that I learned a whole new way of eating – with the bone broth, liver, and different ways to incorporate coconut into our diet. With me not being so great in the kitchen, the ongoing encouragement and simple recipes found in the workbook were valuable resources. This experience helped me shift my way of eating by eating more “nutrient dense” foods, which means more fat, and in turn, more flavor! I am relieved that healthy foods need not be bland.

The Feed Your Fertile Body!™ program played a crucial role in the conception of our child. We had been trying for a number of years and wanted a more natural approach than what Western medicine had to offer. Our instructor helped us identify the underlying issues which were preventing us from sustaining a pregnancy. The workbook outlined specific strategies to improve our chances of conceiving. It includes clear and explicit recommendations to fit anyone’s level of interest. It takes into account that each family dynamic is different and recognizes that each client’s ability to make lifestyle adjustments varies. We conceived our baby just two months after completing the fertility program!
My son and I have been working with Kimberly for many months now. My son, specifically, has been going for help with his asthma and the complications that have arisen from it. Each visit is very helpful, as well as educational. Kimberly takes the time to really get to know you and your needs, making sure you are not only comfortable with the procedures, but with her recommendations as well. She also communicates in between appointments to see how things may be improving, or if anything needs to be altered. She is open-minded, knowledgeable, personable, kind, and interested in us as people, not just as patients. I highly recommend Kimberly's services as a Nutritional Therapist.
