Hey lovely, I’m so happy you’re here.

My mission with every part of my work is to make it easier for fat folks to access respectful and appropriate care throughout their fertility journey.

I want every fertility provider to be weight-inclusive but the reality is that it’s hard for fat folks to find that care, so I’ve created:

The Fat-Positive Fertility Network. 

The Fat Positive Fertility Network is a group of practitioners who are committed to unlearning how our healthcare systems see fat folks when they want to get pregnant.

This list is specifically for fertility practitioners and non-diet practitioners who treat folks with fertility issues. 

All members of the Fat-Positive Fertility Network have done some training with me or shown their commitment to supporting fat folks with their fertility using a non-diet approach in other ways.

How to join The Fat Positive Fertility Network

All members will have some training in fertility and in non diet support specifically for fat folks.

I’m a fertility acupuncturist and passionate educator, running a busy clinic and creating online information and practical advice for everybody who is TTC.
We’ve all been told how not to get pregnant but when the switch is flipped and we want to start a family it can be confusing, sometimes overwhelming and hard to know where to go for support and advice.
I’m an Advanced Fertility Practitioner, so have a thorough understanding of both Western and Chinese Medical approaches to fertility, both for natural and assisted conception. I have certificate in Counselling Skills and Practice from Birkbeck University and am a Trained Teacher in Natural Fertility Education. This means I can teach people how to confidently track their menstrual cycle and ovulation window, thus improving their chances of conceiving naturally.

Name: McKenzie Caldwell, MPH, RDN (she/her)

Website: www.feedyourzest.com

Hi! I’m McKenzie Caldwell, registered dietitian nutritionist. I help people heal from perfectionism around food and their bodies so they can live fully nourished through fertility, pregnancy and beyond. I’m a strong believer that your body is wise, and that tuning into your innate wisdom is powerful. I want to help you find that power through reconnecting to your body, and with a little nutrition science along the way, reach your reproductive health goals and ultimately live your best life.
I believe nutrition should be truly holistic – which means it takes into account your mental and emotional health too. That’s why I take a weight-inclusive, eating disorder informed approach to my practice. No matter the size of your body, you deserve to receive quality healthcare, feel at peace with food and have positive body image.
