Looking for advice from fellow TTC Sisters...

Postby WholesomeBabes » Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:06 pm

Hi ladies, I wanted some advice and thought this could be a good place to come. I struggled with fertility for 3+ years and in January I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl after doing two rounds of Ovulation Induction. I have studied Nutrition and I am really keen to work in this area seeing as I have so much experience in what it's like to be on the journey where it seems that everyone is getting pregnant except you!!! I am thinking about producing a Protein Nutrition Booster which can be added to smoothies and cooking to give us a boost in lots of the nutrients that are important when getting our bodies ready to make babies (protein, folate, iron, magnesium, calcium etc). I know this is something that I would use a lot, but I'm wondering if anyone else would be keen to use it? What do you reckon? Honest opinion, do you think it would be helpful??? With love to everyone on the TTC journey xoxo
