In today’s episode Melanie McGrice, who is a fertility and prenatal dietitian based down in Melbourne in Victoria, is chatting with us about how diet and nutrition can influence fertility and pregnancy whilst working 24/7.  We also discuss a few questions that were submitted by our listeners around conception, along with the effects on baby (if any), when working rotating shifts.

Melanie is the founder of Nutrition Plus Women’s Nutrition Clinics which provide specialist fertility and prenatal nutrition support around Australia, including online programs on nutrition for mothers-to-be.  She is a wealth of knowledge in this area so if you’re thinking about having a baby, then tune into this great conversation with Melanie!
