Meet Our Fertility Nutritionist

Complementary services from our fertility nutritionist

The old saying that “You are what you eat” is true. There’s no more important time to care about your diet than when you’re preparing for pregnancy. Many women recognize the importance of diet and nutrition once they have a baby on board. However, getting the right vitamins and minerals is equally important during your fertility treatment. That’s why Robert Anderson MD and Don Royster MD provide the services of an experienced fertility nutritionist as part of his comprehensive approach to care.

Erin Macdonald, registered dietician, works with our team. She ensures that you get the right nutrition to maximize your natural fertility, before and during your fertility treatment.
