Alison Hall is a registered Nutritional Therapist. She specialises in preconception care, IVF preparation and pregnancy nutrition, with a particular interest in miscarriage and recurrent miscarriage. Viewing fertility very much as a ‘team game’ she works with couples, using nutritional science and lifestyle recommendations to create achievable, personalised plans; helping couples to reduce their individual risk factors and improve their chances of a successful pregnancy.
‘I’ve been where you are now. After years living a hectic London life as a television producer and struggling with AWOL hormones, I was run down, stressed and plagued by insomnia. Experiencing traumatic miscarriage and challenging pregnancies, I needed to take stock and take back control. I have always loved food, but I began to view it in an entirely different light. The more I read, the more intrigued I became. I understood that those three meals a day not only provided fuel for my body, but information for my cells. This realisation changed everything for me. We need to understand that our bodies are a series of interconnected systems. Each system affects the next and this can have a huge impact on our fertility. Food (and its nutrients) has the potential to help us function at our very best.’
Since then Alison has graduated from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition with distinction and gone on to complete further postgraduate training in preconception and hormonal health. She continues her research to ensure she works with the most up-to-date science available. She now runs a busy on-line clinic and is mum to three daughters.
