Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked within Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Today’s podcast is “Can nutritional therapy prepare you for IVF success?” I’ve not recorded an episode specifically about IVF on my podcast before. I have recently published an Instagram post for the Fertility Nutrition Centre, which I am proud to be a founding member of. It was all about IVF, so I am recording an episode on it.
