It’s hard to get testimonials in this business, it’s a very private subject.
But I do ask, and from time to time I do get some brave souls who are willing to say “I travelled that road“!
I can’t say I enjoyed that time in my life…it was stressful to say the least…and initially I didn’t like having to give up certain foods, but it was so worth it because we ended up cancelling our IVF program and conceiving a boy. That was 4 years ago and now we are enjoying our second boy.
Well truth be told my wife made me go, and Brendan told me this was normal.
What can I say…it worked…the swimmers started swimming again.
Being an ex pat in a foreign country really caused me worry when we realised we needed to get ART. There good here but I just wasnt comfortable with the whole thing, then my friend, she’s Irish, told me about Brendan and as soon as we talked I felt better about going for IVF here in UAE because I understood it better. I hoped we would be able to cancel before it all started but after three months on Brendan’s program (and 24 months of trying before the program) we did choose IVF and we did conceive but sadly had a miscarraige after 8 weeks.
I was full of doubt after this but we stayed on the nutrition program and started to feel a lot better…then my period normalised and that’s when I started to really think it might work.
5 months after the miscarraige we conceived and to make a long story short we had a girl and I resally felt great throughout the whole pregnancy. If I would say one thing about the program it was Brendan’s reassurance in me to believe in myself that really helped the most. Ye’ll never see me but I’m in tears writing this!
I’m the odd one out according to Brendan…it was my DH who made me go to see him. I had no idea I was doing everything wrong…and I mean with food not with anything else!! I actually lost weight even thoough brendan didnt want me to, my skin got way better, my sleep improved a lot and what can I say we conceived a girl after 5 months even though we’d been ttc’ing for over 2 years. The pregnancy was hard all the same but Brendan always had great advice for me, and still does now when I need to ask him something about feeding my daughter. Best therapist ever!
Wondering About My Background?
Reproductive Nutrition is run by Brendan O’Brien NT MSc as a specialist nutritional advisory service for couples who are struggling to become pregnant and who wish to optimise their health in advance of conception.
I’m a qualified Nutritional Therapist
I earned a Master’s Degree in Science for Personalised Nutrition, and hold a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.
I’m a registered member of my governing body the Nutritional Therapists Of Ireland
(I am married to Siobhan (who’s an adult ed. teacher), and we are owned by three children who warm my heart every single day!)
I worked for several years as a general nutritionist helping many adults and children overcome a variety of health challenges and I also teach nutrition and supervise clinical training at the Irish Institute of Nutrition & Health (www.iinh.net)
If there is one area I am drawn to most it’s infertility.
The prospect of not being able to have my own children would have broken something in me, and so with gratitude it is my deepest wish to help others avoid that fate if at all possible!
