Feeling Alone Or Confused In Your Fertility Journey? Let’s Put A Stop To That!

We’re here to optimise your chances of conceiving using diet and lifestyle.

We understand that trying to conceive can be a daunting journey. Whether you’re planning for your first child or adding to your growing family, you want to do anything and everything you can to ensure a healthy pregnancy. This may have seemed simple enough before— eat well, exercise, drink water— but once you start thinking about conceiving, you can find there’s a lot more to it than you thought.

Suddenly, you’re faced with an avalanche of information, and every piece tells you to do something different. It can feel overwhelming and confusing, and you might think about just giving up. After working with thousands of people, we know that every fertility story is unique – but with expert advice and tailored support, it is possible to enhance fertility health and achieve your family goals.

Enter: The Dietologist! We’re experts in fertility nutrition, and we’re here to sort fact from fiction and to personally help you through your fertility journey, one-on-one.

We’re Here To Answer Your Questions And Hold Your Hand

With The Dietologist, you can enhance your fertility health and take strides towards the future you want.

You WILL feel part of a team who want nothing more than to help you achieve your goals.

You WILL leave the ‘what if I changed my diet?’ mentality behind knowing you had expert nutrition support.

You WILL feel the support of a scientific-minded and compassionate expert team cheering you on.

You WILL have the reassurance that you’ve left no stone unturned on your fertility journey.

Looking For 1:1 Fertility Nutrition Support? You’ve Found It!

Trying to conceive, or planning on doing so, can be a roller coaster experience. And, naturally, you want to do the right thing as a future parent, and building a nutritious diet that works for your body to help you conceive is a great place to start!

We offer three 1:1 options where you can work directly with our highly qualified team to receive expert guidance on all things fertility health and nutrition. Whether you’re looking for an express option to point you in the right direction on supplement selection or a more comprehensive solution to guide you through your journey – we have a 1:1 service for you! 

The preconception and pregnancy stages are incredibly important in shaping the future health of a family.

Working with an experienced, evidence-based fertility dietitian like Stefanie or Kaylee maximises your ability to make a positive impact with dietary and lifestyle changes, while also alleviating the confusion that often exists around fertility nutrition.

The Dietologist is widely recognised as a leading fertility nutrition practice, and I know that any client will receive not only expert dietetic advice, but compassion, understanding and very practical support that will make their journey much easier.

A Jam-Packed 30-Minute Consultation Designed To Craft A Tailored Supplement Plan For You And Your Future Baby

A recent study published by our very own dietitian, Kaylee Slater APD, showed that only 4 out of 534 women were able to meet their nutrient targets for folate, calcium, iron, and zinc from their diet alone! We know that people trying to conceive typically need additional nutritional support via supplements – but with so many to pick from, how do you know which ones are right for you? 

Our Express Prenatal Supplement Consult service is all about finding the right supplement for your body, your life, and your future baby. You’ll get a jam-packed 30-minute consultation where we’ll answer all of your fertility questions and provide a customised recommendation on the best prenatal supplement regime for you. After the consultation, you’ll be able to:

  • Follow a personalised supplement plan based on your medical history, dietary patterns, nutritional needs, and more.
  • Spend more time relaxing and less time wandering the chemist aisles.
  • Gain confidence knowing you’re filling any nutritional gaps you may have.

A 2-Hour Deep Dive With An Expert Fertility Dietitian To Build Your Ideal Pre-Conception Game Plan

Short on time? Don’t worry; that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! Our Fertility Nutrition Intensive service is a once-off 2 hour session that takes your current nutrition and lifestyle into account, giving you answers in no time.

After the Intensive session, you’ll walk away (or log off!) with:

  • 2 hours of expert support from a qualified dietitian and experienced fertility nutrition expert (so you can ask all those questions you’ve been Googling at 2am!).
  • A bespoke prenatal supplement plan to support your body and your future baby on your pre-conception journey.
  • Personalised nutrition strategies to best support you in your fertility journey.
  • Plus: A downloadable eGuide – The Ultimate Fertility Nutrition Manual
I love sending my clients to The Dietologist as I know they will get sensible, no-nonsense guidance on their nutrition and supplementation needs for pre-conception and even early pregnancy.

This is an anxious time for many women and couples, and finding their way through the overwhelming mass of fertility nutrition advice out there is daunting.

The Dietologist keep it ‘real’ by delivering evidence based advice, tailored to their clients needs and individual situations and in ways that can easily be implemented into busy lives.

The team at The Dietologist truly are the leading dietitians in fertility. Their ability to apply research to practice and provide top quality care that achieves fantastic results for their clients is inspiring.

As a fellow allied health practitioner it is such a pleasure to be in a collaborative relationship with them to really provide thorough care for their clients and optimise results.

They leave no stone unturned when it comes to women’s health care. This was evident in their most recent program Fertility360, a revolutionary program combining dietetics, exercise physiology, psychology and medicine in a format to provide up to date education for couples preparing for conception.

The whole team at The Dietologist are fantastic, the care is exceptional as are the results, and I would recommend them above anyone else for women’s health and fertility related dietetics care.

Here’s What People Say About The Dietologist

We’re trusted by people across the world to sort through the misinformation and focus on fertility nutrition facts and science, with some fun along the way!

Frequently asked questions

Yes, we are a fully online practice, which means all of our 1:1 consultations are conducted via Zoom. This means we can see clients from around Australia and the world – don’t worry, we customise our suggestions to what you can access in your country! Our team is based in Sydney, NSW, Australia; however, we do not offer face-to-face consultations.

We want you to get the most out of working with us, so please come prepared for your consultation. This will help things run smoothly so we can make the most of our time together! So, here are what we love for you to provide to us ahead of your initial consultation with us:

  1. Your referral documents from your doctor (optional, if you have one or are claiming a Medicare rebate for your consultation) – this is not necessary to see us!
  2. A copy of your blood work results from the last 6-12 months. Haven’t had any before then? Drop us an email, and we can help point you in the right direction!
  3. A summary of your current supplements and medications (if any), including brand name, when you take them and how much of each you take.
  4. Any relevant tests, reports or summaries (if any)
  5. Completely optional for Fertility Nutrition Intensive or Coaching Program clients: A 5-7 day food diary – please don’t feel obligated to do this, if you don’t get the chance or choose not to, we are trained to get the information we need about your diet without needing a food diary!

You need a few pieces to help get connected to your dietitian at The Dietologist:

  1. A laptop or computer with a webcam and microphone is preferred, a smartphone works too when you’re on the go!
  2. A reliable Wi-Fi or internet connection.
  3. A headset or earphones are preferable.
  4. You don’t need to have Zoom installed on your phone or laptop; however, it can make for a smoother experience for you!
  5. That’s it! Click the link in your appointment confirmation email a few minutes before your appointment is scheduled to begin. 

We are here to help. If you have any issues with the above, please contact us via email at [email protected]

Absolutely! We see people who are trying to conceive without intervention or who may need fertility treatments such as IVF, along the way. Our bespoke fertility nutrition services do NOT replace the guidance of a medical specialist in your fertility care. We are here to provide support to your plan to enhance and optimise your outcomes. We work with many people using IVF to conceive, including with their partner, reciprocal IVF, as well as those using donor eggs or donor sperm, donor embryos and gestational surrogacy preparations. We help support egg health and sperm quality (where relevant), supporting your body throughout the IVF process and preparing the uterus for implantation and pregnancy!

We recommend allowing at least three months before egg retrieval, if possible and at least 4-6 weeks prior to implantation to get the maximum benefit from nutrition therapies for your treatment cycle! Make sure you account for wait times and availability too!

We do! We have an open-door policy, which means your partner (he/she/they) can attend any and all consultations alongside you as a support person, ask questions and can take on board some tips to support your goals as well as their own fertility and wellbeing too. However, if your partner has significant medical concerns or history and they have particular goals to meet, we may suggest allocating a separate consultation time to discuss this in more detail so we can maintain the high standards of care that we pride ourselves on at The Dietologist! The best consultation for a couples nutrition assessment and advice is the Fertility Nutrition Intensive.

Yes, you can! You can choose your practitioner at the time of booking!

Our practitioners are fully qualified university-trained dietitians and nutritionists and are Accredited Practising Dietitians and Nutritionists overlooked by Dietitians Australia (the peak body for dietitians in Australia).

All dietitians at The Dietologist are also certified in fertility and pregnancy nutrition and can guide you from reproductive health concerns such as PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid concerns (and much more), through trying to conceive and fertility treatments, pregnancy and beyond! We understand that you may connect with one practitioner more so than another based on their unique styles and attributes and unique skill sets. However, depending on their availability, your calendar and time/date preferences, as well as wait times and your budget.

Information for Australian clients only. Yes, we are registered with all private health insurers and can provide a digital receipt via email after you attend your consultation with us for you to claim back a rebate if you have private health with dietetics cover (please check with your insurer for rebate amounts and your coverage as well as any terms and conditions).

We are also recognised by Medicare, you may be eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan or Team Care Arrangement Plan from your GP (general practitioner) which entitles you to up to 5 appointments with an allied health professional each year, providing a rebate. Speak to your GP to see if you’re eligible and ensure you provide your documentation to us before your first consultation, so we can process the rebate on your behalf after your consultation.  We also accept Eating Disorder Care Plans, which can entitle you to up to 20 dietitian appointments per year.  You are also welcome to pay out of pocket if neither of those options are relevant to you.

Please note our express prenatal supplement consults are not eligible for Private Health or Medicare rebates.

If you have questions about rebates and referrals, please email us at [email protected]

We recommend providing as much information about your health as possible before your consultation so we can tailor our recommendations to your unique circumstances, and bloodwork can be particularly useful! Collate your pathology results from the last 6-12 months before your appointment and email them to us at [email protected]

Please email us after you are booked in and one of our practitioners will review your history and make suggestions for you to request from your doctor, please allow adequate time to see your doctor and arrange these tests so we have the results for the consultation, we require a *minimum* of 48 hours to reschedule your consult without a fee.

Still have questions?

If you cannot find an answer to your question in our FAQ, you can always contact us, and we will be with you shortly.
