Fertility Diet Success Stories
"I can't even begin to describe how Julia has helped us. I had suffered a miscarriage, we wanted answers but had no idea where to start. I reached out to Julia on recommendation. It was the best and smartest move we made on our fertility journey. Julia not only helped us both with being in the best possible shape we could be, she helped us identify exactly what our problem was by signposting us to various healthcare professionals and by carrying out various tests. In my case this led to the discovery of an underactive thyroid which I had never even considered, as I was totally unaware of having symptoms, but Julia knew! And in the case of my husband, Julia helped us to get semen analyses which led us to discover low morphology and DNA fragmentation (terms I had never heard of prior to working with Julia!) but things we now know to be extremely important. I am now 21 weeks pregnant and we consider Julia to be the most pivotal person in making this happen (aside from the two of us of course!), without Julia, we would not be here.
The nutritional advice that Julia gives is absolutely brilliant, tailored to each individual, evidence-based, and incredibly easy to follow. I am in the best shape I have been in in years and regardless of the fertility benefits, people have been commenting on my skin and hair having been improved (and this was prior to being pregnant!) A sign to me that it is totally true that what you put into your body has a major effect on how healthy you are in every way - including, but not limited to, fertility.
Julia is far more than a nutritional therapist. I went to her expecting to have some help with my diet and lifestyle, and what we got was infinitely more valuable. Fertility is a dark and twisted labyrinth but Julia has seen it all and knows exactly which path to take next to find your way out and get you to your ultimate goal, your baby. We are forever grateful."

"Before we started working with Julia we had had a round of IVF which only resulted in 2 eggs being collected and neither implanting. We wanted to give ourselves the best shot for our next round and were willing to take the time to work on hopefully improving our chances.
I had followed Julia for a while on Instagram and we decided to contact her to help us. We worked with Julia for around six months following her recommendations and test suggestions, prior to our second round of IVF. I always found Julia extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was understanding and gave us great support throughout our process with her.
Our second round of IVF was much more successful, resulting in 8 eggs being collected. Also my partner's sample results had massively improved. I am now 5 months pregnant and can’t thank Julia enough. I would recommend her a 100% to anyone who is looking to improve their chances of success."

Before starting to work with Julia, we were trying for our second child for over 4 years. We had IVF which failed and tried a lot of other fertility options but unfortunately nothing was working. We were told once I went for IVF that I had a diminished ovarian reserve and that my chances would be slim moving forward! I was then introduced to Julia and working with Julia was finally a breath of fresh air. She reviewed my history in detail, and we did a number of blood tests so she could get an indication of where I required support. She really tailored our package so it worked for my husband and I, and it was not drastic as I wanted to ensure it was realistic and we could still manage this in our daily lives. Even though our ultimate goal was to have a second round of IVF and have a better success rate, we wanted to maintain a healthy lifestyle which we did, but also improve the egg quality! Julia sent us some great tips and information, and she was there throughout our journey. We finally went for IVF after completing our course with Julia and I successfully had 4 healthy eggs and 2 which I managed to freeze! This was a huge difference from two years ago when I couldn't even manage one healthy egg! I can't thank Julia enough, she has really helped us through this emotional journey and by eating the right foods, having the right mindset has really helped us get where we are today. we're so grateful to be one of Julia's fertility diet success stories."
"I am currently 21 weeks pregnant following 3 miscarriages. My husband and I worked with Julia for 3 months, implementing changes to our diets and suggested supplements. Julia combined nutritional advice with suggestions for stress reduction, and helped us navigate getting tests and help from our doctors. We found Julia’s support invaluable in helping us take back control of the things we could do to improve our fertility and regain hope. We’re so glad we decided to work with Julia, before going down a more medical route. We had our 20 week scan last week and the sonographer told us our baby was progressing perfectly. It was a very emotional moment and we can’t thank Julia enough for the role she has played in supporting us."
"When we approached Julia we had been trying to conceive for a year. We were about to embark on IVF and I felt that we both needed to get our bodies in the best shape possible to maximise our chance of success. We are generally healthy eaters so this was a matter of fine tuning our nutrition. Julia worked with us over several sessions to review our diet and provided useful guidance on food, supplements and lifestyle choices. I am delighted to say the IVF wasn't needed because within 3 months I was pregnant! I am 20 weeks along. I am sure the nutritional fine tuning had an important role to play in our success and importantly it also helped to feel that we were doing something different to help the process."

"I came to Julia as I was struggling with fertility. My husband and I had been trying for a baby for nearly three years and were just about to start our second round of IVF. I wanted to give this round the best chance of success and chose to see Julia as she had been through IVF herself. From the offset, Julia was professional and provided invaluable advice not only regarding my diet but also my lifestyle and ways to help reduce stress and take care of myself. Unfortunately, our IVF cycle got cancelled partway through due to Covid but amazingly we managed to conceive NATURALLY the next month! I'm certain that this is as a result of the changes I made to my diet and lifestyle following Julia's recommendations. Since finding out, I have continued to stay in touch with Julia and she has helped to advise me on what supplements to take throughout my pregnancy."

"Before starting to work with Julia my husband and and I were feeling overwhelmed with what to do best for our fertility, and unsure if we were supplementing with the right things to improve our chances of conceiving. After two failed rounds of IVF we wanted to see if gaining expert nutritional advice, through Julia, was a way to take some control. Julia did some great investigation work and analysis through our consultations. Julia was clear about what we had to do, but also not strict with our diet and lifestyle- which suited us. We have found Julia to be very open and understanding through all of our discussions.
We were pleased to feel improvements in our overall energy and symptom reduction, such as bloating and pain, and my husband's sperm analysis was much improved! We feel we have taken positive steps through Julia’s knowledge and guidance. Julia is very calm, thorough, kind, and takes a real holistic approach to our situation. We would highly recommend working with Julia - if you need direction, clear plans and communication- whatever your goal. A good investment!"

"Before I began working with Julia I was finding it hard to keep the faith with regards to falling pregnant again. Our first pregnancy unfortunately ended in miscarriage, and we had been struggling to conceive again since. We sought Julia's support because we were keen to ensure that we were doing all that we could from a nutrition and lifestyle perceptive to help things along. I found the entire process of working with Julia to be clear and informative. I was impressed both by her personalised approach and attention to detail. Julia has helped to bring awareness to areas that we previously lacked knowledge and know-how around. We found our time working with her both challenging and stretching - but in a very positive way! If you are looking for someone who is warm but firm, informed and thorough in her approach - Julia is your woman. Thank you, Julia, for all of your support."

"I approached Julia as I was keen to prepare my body for a second child. It had been a bit of a bumpy road conceiving our first and I wanted to start trying to conceive again with more confidence and less anxiety. I wanted a natural but informed approach that would respect my desire to reduce breastfeeding my first child gently, whilst doing what I could to maximise my chances of conceiving again. From the first consultation I felt Julia would work with me to give me the best advice whilst respecting my choices. We looked at my diet, current health and lifestyle and Julia suggested some helpful but manageable changes. I felt like I had more energy and began putting on some healthy weight. After about six months of working with Julia we fell pregnant! I would recommend working with Julia as she helps you feel in control of your body and health, and she is very knowledgeable. She can also work in harmony and alongside your GP and other therapies if you need other investigations or treatment, and she gives you the confidence to seek further support as needed. Thank you Julia!"

“Before I worked with Julia I was overwhelmed with information on what to do to help my fertility. I felt unsupported and unstructured in my journey. I found the entire process to be incredibly thorough, personal, clear, supportive and well structured. I now feel clearer about what I need to do, more informed, more supported and less lost. It was an incredibly nourishing, supportive, educational, practical, and effective experience. I would recommend working with Julia because she’s incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, clear and well structured in her approach."
“Before I worked with Julia, I was struggling with low energy and low mood. From my first consultation I started to notice improvements. She was able to identify vitamin deficiencies and bad habits that were negatively affecting me. Julia has supported me along my journey and I have a noticed that I now have the right energy level enabling me to focus better on my work, exercise, and be more active in my family. I would strongly recommend working with Julia. Also, she quickly made me feel at ease speaking with her and maintains confidentiality. Julia’s demeanour is very supportive and she encourages small steps to change your lifestyle, enabling you to reach your end goal (which do not overwhelm). You can tell that Julia loves being a Nutritionist and is passionate about others having a healthier and happier lifestyle.”

"Before I worked with Julia I was struggling with uncomfortable pains in my stomach that I'd had for years and could never find a solution for. I was feeling low in mood and tired a lot of the time.
I found Julia to be a warm and empathetic practitioner who knew right from the start what was going on in my body causing me to feel the way I was. Her recommendations regarding changes to my diet were really clear and easy to follow. I always understood the rationale behind the changes I needed to make. The results I received after working with Julia are that my stomach pain has completely disappeared and is feeling comfortable and normal again. My mood and energy has improved dramatically too. I wouldn't hesitate working with Julia again because she is very knowledgeable and professional as well as being very understanding. Thank you Julia!”

“I went to see Julia as I felt I needed some help with my diet. She was hugely sympathetic and took the time to find out my history and exactly how I was feeling. She very clearly explained the potential issues I was experiencing and changes I could make to my diet which were easy to implement as well as supplements I could try. Within a matter of weeks, I felt so much better and the issues I was experiencing have either gone or reduced massively. Highly recommend”
— Debs, Weybridge
“What was hugely beneficial to me was the ease I felt in talking with Julia. I felt I could be open and honest about my physical and mental health challenges, which ultimately made the whole experience and outcomes better. I found Julia to be a true professional and an empathetic practitioner ”
