About Us

Hi, I'm Danté

Thanks for visiting my site! As you can see,  I am passionate about helping soon-to-be parents have the healthiest baby possible.  How did I get into this niche you may wonder? Well, there are a number of reasons I could give you over a nice cup of coffee and a long chat but two that really stand out for me.

Before I list my reasons for entering into this field I’d like to share something with you. I believe that all dietitians should find something within dietetics to niche or focus in. The human body is a complex and intricate creation and it cannot be mastered as a whole. In light of that, if your needs do not fall within my scope of fertility (for men and women), pregnancy and women’s health (see my services for details of where and how I can help you), then I strongly believe you should not just find any other dietitian, but rather search around for a dietitian specialised in the area you need help in. 

Now, to continue. I became a fertility and prenatal focused dietitian because I wanted to start at the root cause. I have always embraced the truth that prevention is better than cure. It was this understanding lead me to investigate where I could have the biggest impact in “changing the world”. At first I thought that was newborns and breastfeeding but as I dug deeper I found that the earliest point at which I could start making a big difference in the future generation was before conception. I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears! How could chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, obesity and cardiac disease be programmed in the genes so early on? Even more fascinating, that nutrition, lifestyle, what we consume on a daily basis had a role in all this? Amazing! I had an important job to do and I wasn’t going to let my age or the fact that I wasn’t skilled in business, never having worked for another private practice get in the way of my mission. 

The second reason is a lot more personal but linked to the first reason. I lost my sister, Tamryn at the young age of 10 to diabetes. I didn’t know her, I was less than a year when she passed but I always had questions, I still have questions. At first this lead me into the field of diabetes and preventing and managing diabetes in adults but I very quickly realised that that simply wasn’t enough. I wanted to get to the root of the issue not slow the process down, giving advice to parents of obese children. I needed to work with couples wanting to get pregnant, share just how big an impact nutrition plays on their future baby’s health even before they have conceived. Tell them just how important it is to have the healthiest sperm and egg, share how important healthy weight gain during pregnancy is, and in my own way prevent heartbreak and loss in families leaving behind a legacy of life in helping couples have healthy babies.

Nutrition plays a very important and significant role in fertility and pregnancy. The first 1000 days (3 months before conception all the way through to toddlerhood) is the most important and influential period of ones’ life. This crucial period can determine the future health of your child and either set them ahead in life with good health or have lasting consequences due to poor dietary decisions of which they had very little control. 

At Danté Dietitians we believe in helping you give your future children the very best head start to life from the very beginning when is counts most.

Why the focus on food for fertility? 

In the same way that diet plays a very significant role in heart health it also plays a massive role in egg, sperm, ovary, testicular and embryo quality and health. Holistically, whatever is consumed via the mouth, eyes, brain and ears has an influence on the make up of the human body. We know that stress, pollution and lifestyle have a lasting effect on the entire human body, does this not include the reproductive system?
