Honoring Fertility Nutrition During National Nutrition Month
Our Nutritionists work Alongside the Fertility Specialists to Customize Nutrition Plans
After a nutrition assessment, patients benefit from individualized meal plans, advice on how to develop positive relationships with food, and on going motivational counseling sessions. Our nutrition team works closely with patients and their fertility specialists to personalize their nutrition plans to reflect each patient’s own food preferences, concerns, and experiences – all influenced by their culture, religion, values, health, and emotions.
In addition, we encourage our patients to embrace comprehensive wellness through acupuncture and relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, and tai chi to reduce stress. The goal is to support their fertility treatment while improving blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and insulin control, and weight management.
We Also Run a Unique Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Clinic for Patients
RMACT has implemented a Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome clinic, one of the few of its kind in Connecticut. Patients can now address this frustrating metabolic condition that causes hormonal imbalances, preventing women from ovulating and leading to infertility. It is a common condition, affecting 5 – 10% of women of reproductive age, and is best managed through lifestyle changes such as healthy eating habits, exercise and weight management.
