Michelle Strong, RHN

Michelle is a Registered Nutritionist and founder of myMindBodyBaby, an online space that educates, advocates and supports couples on their path to baby.

Michelle’s personal fertility journey spanned 2 years. After realizing her family dreams, Michelle felt compelled to bring more support to the fertility community – something that she felt was greatly lacking during her own fertility journey. This was the catalyst for myMindBodyBaby and the Strong Fertility method – an evidence-based, individualized program designed to help couples optimize various lifestyle parameters and improve their chance of pregnancy in both natural and treatment cycles.

Michelle is active on social media, educating and inspiring those who are trying to conceive, on the incredible impact lifestyle change can have on fertility outcomes. She also works 1:1 with couples and individuals needing personalized fertility programs.
