As a certified fertility and prenatal dietitian, she has specialised expertise in nutrition and dietetics, particularly in areas concerning fertility and prenatal care. This specialisation requires additional training and certification beyond the standard qualifications for a dietitian. It involves an in-depth focus on how nutrition affects fertility, pregnancy, and the health of both the mother and the developing fetus, ensuring a comprehensive approach to maternal health.

  • An in-depth 90-minute consultation with a comprehensive analysis of your dietary habits, your blood tests, and a review of your overall health, lifestyle, and fertility history.

Our initial consultation is primarily focused on the individual. However, we highly encourage your partner to participate in the consultation to gain insights into the vital dietary and lifestyle changes that can enhance fertility for both of you.

If you choose to enrol in our Mastering Egg Health Program following your initial consultation, it includes an initial assessment and a tailored plan for your partner at no extra cost. This ensures that both of you are supported and informed throughout this journey.

The initial consultation is usually 90 minutes. A subsequent follow-up visit will take around 45 – 60 minutes.

The fee for an individual initial consultation is $550. 

Each follow-up consultation is priced at $350 per session. These sessions are crucial for providing individually tailored reviews and nutrition strategies designed to educate and support you in making sustainable improvements to your dietary habits.

Our consultation fees reflect the specialised nature of our services in fertility and prenatal nutrition. This specialised field demands a unique set of skills and a deep level of knowledge, which directly influences the quality, customisation, and effectiveness of the care we offer.

Catherine Chong, our certified and award-winning fertility dietitian, brings over 15 years of specialized experience. Her expertise in fertility nutrition is distinct and highly specialised compared to general dietetic services. When you choose our consultations, you’re investing in a superior level of expertise. This includes dedicated time spent with clients during consultations, meticulously drafting each customised nutrition plan, and providing unlimited support following consultations.

This comprehensive approach ensures that you receive the most effective, personalised support throughout your fertility journey, making our services a valuable investment in your health and future.

 

After your initial consultation, you’ll have a couple of options for your next steps:

  1. Enrol in the Mastering Egg Health Program: This 12-week follow-up package is the most popular choice for many clients. By choosing this program, you’ll gain access to our comprehensive online learning portal, which includes a variety of resources to optimise your egg quality and six follow-up consultations with Dietitian Catherine Chong. These resources include personalised meal plans, fertility-friendly recipes, expert-led masterclasses, and unlimited support throughout the 12 weeks. We recommend scheduling follow-up sessions every two weeks to help reinforce and refine the strategies and skills you’ve learned, with a dedicated focus on maximising your fertility potential. Partner is welcome to join the sessions. 
  2. Opt for Single Follow-up Consultations: Alternatively, if you prefer more flexibility, you can book individual follow-up consultations as needed. This option allows you to address specific concerns or questions following the initial consultation.

Both options are crafted to provide ongoing support, guidance, and expert knowledge on your path to enhanced fertility.
