In today’s episode Melanie McGrice, who is a fertility and prenatal dietitian based down in Melbourne in Victoria, is chatting with us about how diet and nutrition can influence fertility and pregnancy whilst working 24/7.  We also discuss a few questions that were submitted by our listeners around conception, along with the effects on baby (if any), when working rotating shifts.
