Elizabeth Shaw MS, RDN, CLT, CPT
Hi, I'm Elizabeth, but please call me Liz. I founded Bumps to Baby in December 2016, just two days before my first IVF cycle. I was lost, looking for a place to connect with others going through the road of infertility as well. But, I was tired of all the online forums I saw that promoted the latest fad diet, crazy concoction and who knows what! That's when I decided to write about my journey, to share the evidenced based information mixed in with real life and real talk. I have a strong passion for helping others understand how they can regain control in a situation that often feels so out of control on the journey to expanding their families.
In addition to being a fertility advocate, a registered dietitian, certified personal trainer and author of Fertility Foods, a cookbook devoted to helping those trying-to-conceive implement the science backed strategies to improve one's nutrition while struggling with infertility. My goal is to make you feel less alone on your journey, whatever stage you're on!
