Our fertility journey started 6 years ago. After trying to conceive naturally for 2 years we decided to seek medical help. After several diagnostic tests I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility where the doctor prescribed a 3 month's course of oral medication (Clomiphene citrate and Gonadotropins). Never have I thought there will be such a long and emotional road still to come, and just to make matters even more stressful we decided to immigrate. Being in a foreign country, we had to start the whole process again...from a GP visit, diagnostic tests and finally starting with treatment again. This time around our fertility team advised us to start with IUI accompanied by hormone treatment (FSH and Gonadotropins). After 4 failed IUI cycles we moved onto IVF, more specifically ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection).
I am currently expecting my baby girl in May 2021!!
Being a dietitian; the medical field has always been a big interest of mine and I found it very therapeutic to research the infertility topic along with my treatment regime. This has lead me to my passion for nutrition and fertility. I quickly realized that there are so much information and products on the market related to food and fertility, so much so that I made it my personal mission to narrow everything down to scientific, practical information. I want to share my knowledge with you, making you worry about one less thing.
My professional career as a registered dietitian kicked off in 2010 where I gained extensive experience by working as a clinical dietitian in a hospital setting until 2013. My career then evolved in product development where I was part of several successful international brand launches. In 2017 I filled the position of Enteral Nutrition Product Manager of a market leading pharmaceutical company. Since then I devoted my time and passion as a consulting dietitian, especially focusing on fertility and nutrition - and this was the birth of SoFitt. Nutrition.
