Are you looking for strategies to help your patients who have already experienced multiple miscarriages? Experiencing a miscarriage is one of the worst experiences a couple can go through. Experiencing multiple miscarriages amplifies the terror and anxiety.

 Nutrition may be the missing link for many of these couples. The latest evidence about the role of nutrition in reducing the risk of recurrent miscarriages is illuminating. And it's not just about avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. There may be other strategies that make an important difference for many of your clients.

This event is not designed to blame, but rather to provide answers and solutions.

 'The Role of Nutrition in Miscarriage'
is a self paced online course that helps shed light and breaks down the social taboo of miscarriage

The online course will walk healthcare professionals through strategies to better support their clients who have experienced the tragedy of recurrent miscarriage.
We will explore new findings in nutrition, which may help to inspire hope for parents-to-be with a history of miscarriages, so you can feel confident in your ability to provide your clients with some strategies that may reduce their risk of experiencing this tragedy again.

'The Role of Nutrition in Miscarriage' includes:

  • 3 educational modules - Miscarriage is a difficult topic to discuss, but it's also one of the most important. In the three sessions, you'll hear from an Obstetrician, Dietitian and Psychologist who will provide practical, evidence-based strategies for healthcare professionals to help reduce the risk of future miscarriages.

  • Insight into a woman's recent miscarriage experience - A client openly shares her recent miscarriage experience in an effort to reduce the stigma surrounding miscarriages.  
  • Q&A panel discussion - Our three experts have provided answers to frequently asked questions surrounding miscarriage which will help provide insights and support for clients who are experiencing miscarriage.

  • Client case study - We work through a case study in detail to help reinforce key messages and translate theory into practice.
  • Pre and post course quick quiz – test your knowledge before and after the course to see how much you’ve learnt (and to help you claim professional development points).

  •  Confidence to provide pregnant women with practical, evidence-based advice – best of all, you’ll leave this course knowing that you now have the knowledge and skills to help you optimize your clients’ health during pregnancy.

"I feel so much more confident working with clients who have experienced a miscarriage. If you do work in the fertility and pregnancy space, I would highly recommend"

- Melinda Braithwaite, Accredited Practising Dietitian
