From Practitioner to Mentor

Helping Couples for 15+ Years


The Fertility Nutrition Centre was founded by Sandra Greenbank in 2021. Sandra is an expert in proven nutrition strategies to help couples conceive naturally.  After 15 years of helping hundreds of couples successfully conceive naturally, she is making it possible for more couples to receive support by creating a network of skilled fertility nutrition experts.

Through her work, Sandra realised that she was unable to personally support all of the couples who needed her advice. Through mentoring other nutritionists, she realised that there was a large gap in their knowledge base, since nutritionists receive very little fertility training through their qualification. It had taken Sandra herself many years to gain the expertise in the field through working alongside doctors, consultants, attending courses and of course working with couples.

This is how the Making Babies Naturally in-depth training and mentorship programme was born. There is no other training course out there that prepares nutrition practitioners comprehensively to work with couples who are trying to conceive. It was important to Sandra that those who are looking for a fertility nutritionist can trust that their chosen practitioner is fully able to support them both safely, effectively, and confidently, using the latest scientific data to support their recommendations.

On graduation from the programme, the certified nutritionists are invited to join The Fertility Nutrition Centre directory. Each nutritionist listed with the Centre has been certified through Sandra’s fertility nutrition program and is committed to further developing their knowledge and expertise through monthly expert training. The Fertility Nutrition Centre practitioners are uniquely equipped to serve couples on their conception journey.

Sandra’s Story

A little bit more about our founder

Being a Fertility Nutritionist and guiding patients on their personal path to parenthood is an honour and a privilege, and something I never take for granted. It is the most rewarding and fulfilling work that I could imagine doing, and it is a dream come true to be able to train other practitioners, in order to help even more people. Here is my story of why I came to do what I do.

My Background

I’m Sandra, hald Swedish, half Italian and I have been living in the UK since 1998 after arriving here for what was supposed to be a 6-month English course at Southbank University. I worked for many years in the TV, media and advertising industry which was so much fun but the lifestyle took its toll and I found myself exhausted and depleted. My GP could not find any explanation for my exhaustion and kept wanting to prescribe me anti-depressants. I knew that I was not depressed and that there must be another way, and I came across a nutritional therapist by chance. She turned my health and life around in a way that I could only describe as magic at the time, and I knew then that I wanted to be able to help others in the same way that she had helped me. I enrolled on a 4-year course at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, and it was the single best decision that I have ever made.

I always knew that I wanted to focus on fertility after graduation and in my final year I wrote my business plan all around pre-conception health, pregnancy and growing healthy families. After navigating many health challenges personally and those of my family members, my firm belief is that we have nothing if we ourselves, and our loved ones are not healthy and well. I am also convinced that public health starts with our children – and the data is now clear that our children’s future long-term health is impacted by their parents diet and lifestyle in the run-up to conception.

Teaching parents to support their fertility naturally has a positive ripple-effect not only on their own health, but generations to come through better diet and lifestyle choices but also through positive epigenetic imprints.

My mission was – and is – to change the world, one family at a time. In 2021 I realised that I did not have capacity to help all those who needed my support, so the Fertility Nutrition Centre and the Making Babies Naturally training programme for Fertility Nutritionists was born. This is an in-depth training that takes practitioners through my tried-and tested system and it covers all of the areas they need to master to be a truly fantastic fertility nutritionist. 

The babies born after following my program are my purpose and my legacy, and I am thrilled to be able to help so many more babies into this world through my practitioner training program and fertility nutritionist directory. Together we work tirelessly to provide the best support possible to those who seek our help, and we celebrate every baby born together, too. 

I would encourage you to seek professional support sooner rather than later, and it is my pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend each of the fertility nutritionists listed with the directory. They have been personally trained and supervised by myself for a period of 12 months, and have my continued support.

In their own words

Unexplained infertility

Before working with Sandra I was trying to get pregnant for 2 years, I had tried most things, including working with another nutritional therapist.  I was at a point where IVF was becoming a last resort scenario and deep down knew that I didn’t need to go down that route.

Because I had invested a lot of money in nutritional therapy before, I was cynical if this would work. However, after reading about Sandra it was clear this was different.

I was so lucky to find myself with a positive pregnancy test. The combination of the work with Sandra and myself feeling more empowered and letting go, allowed my body to relax and achieve what I needed to do.

Erica, Muswell Hill

Most of all I feel supported, and I feel more confident that all the changes I am making are having a big impact. I feel more empowered, definitely have a better connection with myself, and I feel good about the dietary and lifestyle changes. 

I am very much the type of person who absorbs lots of information about different diet and lifestyle approaches and recommendations, and it’s such a relief to have someone to go to for knowing the right way that is good for me. Without a doubt I would highly recommend the course! Best investment!’ 

Raj, Germany

I loved working with Sandra. My partner watched and listened to some of the sessions but not all, but it enabled lots of conversation around how we could support ourselves, so it was great in facilitating dialogue. I find Sandra to be authentic, caring, respectful, responsive and always available – and sensitive to the emotional and psychological aspects of the journey.
