The Fertility SA Health & Well-Being Program is exclusive in South Australia, other States are running similar programs with stunning results. It is an education and training program to address fertility, diet, exercise and mind set. The emphasis is on lifestyle management and weight loss particularly for women with a BMI greater than 30.

The first step will involve a nursing pre-assessment. The following week fitness classes begin. The sessions will be a mix of personal goal setting, meal planning and small group activities, with the help of several health specialists. Your fitness trainer, Megan, passionately combines her experience as personal trainer and embryologist. The recommendation is to reduce dietary energy (caloric) intake in the setting of healthy food choices and frequent exercising.
