She is acknowledged as one of Europe’s leading experts on how we can improve our prospects at each key stage of the reproductive process through natural means or, if necessary, through medical intervention.
Zita has been involved in fertility now for over 30 years and over that time thousands of couples have come to her for advice on how to get into optimum shape – physiologically, nutritionally and emotionally – for all the vital stages of childbirth from pre-conception to conception, pregnancy and the months immediately after birth.
Anita is the Group Practice Manager of the Zita West Fertility Clinic and has taken a leading role in the development of the clinic over the past decade. She is also a qualified midwife with over 30 years experience and a trained hypnotherapist too.
