A little bit about me!

Everything that makes me, me!

I grew up on the north coast of Cornwall, all of my days spent with salty skin or covered head to toe in mud!

I now live a very outdoorsy lifestyle in Weymouth with my partner Tim and our camper van, Arlo!

I am a huge nature lover! I love living in sync with the cycles of the moon and seasons!

Big sunrise chaser! My fav time of day is before 6am! Equally love a sunset!

I am one of the co founders of Muddy Boots Nursery School, of which we have 5 nurseries in Poole and Bournemouth.

I am a big romantic at heart and in the summer months and I am a wedding photographer!

Winter is magical for me, I love everything about it, maybe because I was born in January!

My story & mission

After learning I had low AMH levels, doctors advised me to either conceive immediately or freeze my eggs.

Unready for motherhood, I initially began the egg-freezing process but soon realised it wasn't the right path for me. Facing pressure and high costs, I chose a different route: improving the quality of my existing eggs through enhanced nutrition and lifestyle.

With a fresh Master’s degree in nutrition, my interest naturally evolved into specializing in Maternal Nutrition. This journey deepened my passion for educating couples on how diet can significantly influence fertility. While assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF are indispensable for some, I've learned that nutritional and lifestyle modifications can be pivotal for many in achieving natural conception.

My goal is to empower and guide women on their path to motherhood, equipping them with knowledge and tools to make informed decisions about their diet and well-being, thus enhancing their chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy.

To further this mission, I launched the Conscious Conception Plan in 2023, a program dedicated to nurturing fertile health through informed and holistic nutritional strategies.

"I had no clue what a difference I could make to my fertility just through my diet"

“I loved the whole process with Dani, the learning, the implementing and the support! 

The changes I needed to make were completely achievable and I feel so much better in myself after taking control of my nutrition.

I am so grateful to have found Dani and Conscious Conception. It was enjoyable, uplifting and i’d recommend it to anyone looking to conceive.”
