Nutrition to Support Fertility event
With infertility affecting 1 in 6 people, many more are deciding to pursue IVF or other techniques of assisted reproduction.
In recent years, nutrition has become a ‘hot topic’, but should patients interested in IUI, IVF and ICSI follow a diet specifically designed for this?
Eating a healthy diet in preparation for pregnancy is one of the most powerful things you can do. It is even more important when going for IVF as the body will be pushed to produce (in some cases) more eggs in one sitting than in a 6-12 month period, meaning the body needs to be in superior health. Evidence has shown that specific changes can improve sperm health and healthy ovulation, prevent recurrent miscarriage and sustain a successful pregnancy.
Manchester Fertility would like to invite you to a talk to discuss how diet and lifestyle can:
- Improve egg quality and count
- Increase uterine lining
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase sperm in all parameters
- We will also touch on how diet can help reduce Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)
This event will be led by two UK leading Nutritional Therapists who focus on fertility and issues affecting fertility. They have helped to bring hundreds of babies into the world and couples together through assisted routes, including; to donor eggs to support around male infertility.
Rosie Tadman is a Manchester-based Nutritional Therapist. After graduating, Rosie started her career off in the NHS working within Diabetes, but decided that her passion was in female hormones and fertility. Since then, Rosie has opened her own successful private practice supporting women with their hormones and couples to conceive.
Rosie says: ‘I love my job! I have the responsibility of working with individuals and couples during times where they often feel at their most vulnerable and supporting them to optimise their fertility is a real privilege.’
Angela Heap works internationally and has a clinic in London. Over the last 10 years she has developed a tried and tested method with IVF patients based on programmes tailored to the person and their current health. She has been asked to talk on many fertility summits, discussion panels and is a lecturer for BCNH. In October she was asked to speak at an international conference in London on the Gestational Journey – with prominent doctors, Nutritionists and Naturopathic Doctors on Clinical Nutrition and Fertility. Angela brings with her many years of experience around this area, and more importantly blows the lid off some of the commonly held views on what to do in this vital timeframe, busting myths and helping you to take back control of your body using food and lifestyle advice.

FAQ's about this event
Do I need to be a current patient of Manchester Fertility to attend?
No, this event is open to everyone.
Do I need to be intending to go through IVF to attend?
No, the event is open to all couples and singletons who would like to optimise fertility through both natural and assisted routes. That said, some points discussed will be solely related to the IVF process.
I have already started my IVF journey – is it worth me still attending?
Ideally the pre-conception work would start three months prior to the start of IVF as this is the minimum window of time often needed to make a big change to both ovary and sperm health. That said, if you have already started your IVF journey some of the information may will be relevant – but this workshop is aimed primarily at those individuals and couple who have got 3+ months before IVF is planned to commence.
Can I come on my own or do I need to come with a partner?
Come solo or as a couple, the tickets are prices on a per person basis.
How much of the talk will be related to female and male fertility?
The split will roughly be one and a half hours talking about female health and 30 minutes talking about optimising sperm health. This is not because the sperm is less important, but rather, sperm health is often easier to resolve (when you know what to do).
