Food For Fertility

Do Nutrition and Lifestyle Play a Role in Fertility?

Lifestyle choices affect all areas of your health. Optimizing your lifestyle—by eating well, exercising, and reducing stress can increase your chance of becoming pregnant, and of having an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery.

The Food for Fertility Program can help

SRM is proud to offer Food for Fertility, a virtual group workshop focused on improving your nutrition, lifestyle, and fertility through a plant-forward, whole foods diet and active movement.

Judy Simon, MS, RDN and Angela Thyer, MD have helped many women to achieve a healthy pregnancy through the highly successful Food for Fertility Program.  This group program serves to meet the needs of women to cook at home using nourishing, fertility friendly foods in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

The Food for Fertility program is comprised of four, 90-minute virtual sessions from your home kitchen.  Each session is highly interactive and designed to provide you with lifestyle information and skill building to promote optimal nutrition, movement, stress reduction, and fertility.  Sessions involves goal setting, cooking a “food of the week” at your home virtually side by side with Judy and Dr. Angela, and sharing your experiences with other participants. You will be setting individualized goals each week and receive coaching support between classes. Many of our patients have found that the most valuable aspect of the class is the support from your peers.

Your first step is a one hour telemedicine meeting with Judy Simon, a registered dietitian whose expertise is in reproductive nutrition.  Judy works one on one with you to develop an individually designed program to work on your health goals.

If you are motivated to join this program please contact Judy Simon, judy@mind-body-nutriton to register. Due to the interactive nature of this program, virtual class size is limited to ten.

If you are unable to participate in the 4-week program, we host periodic, virtual pop up classes.  Email judy@mind-body-nutriton if you would like to be added to receive notice of future offerings.

“Being part of the Food for Fertility program through SRM helped me to prepare myself both physically and mentally for pregnancy, and enabled me to focus my energy on being the best possible mother to my babies from the earliest possible moment.”

“Food for Fertility is a fantastic class that helps women struggling with infertility make healthy lifestyle changes in food and exercise one step at a time. It allows you to meet up with other women struggling with the same difficulties and provides a great support network. It also helps you to learn to try out new foods you may never have tried before such as chia, kale, and quinoa. Judy Simon is amazing—she makes things interesting and provides excellent education, advice, and support for all women who take this class. I highly recommend it.”
