I provide evidence-based naturopathic care that can help you and your partner achieve optimal health and overcome infertility issues, including difficulty conceiving and improving fertility for IVF and egg freezing.
Increase ability to become pregnant
Research has shown specific herbs, vitamins and nutrients to be beneficial in supporting male and female fertility and influencing the future baby’s health.
Reduce the risk of miscarriage
We can notably reduce the risk of miscarriage by managing oxidative stress, reducing toxicity and providing nutritional support, to ensure the health of sperm and eggs.
Your individualised fertility plan
I'll create a preconception plan tailored to your lifestyle, genetics, and environmental factors, to support your fertility and give your baby the best possible start to life.
Your fertility journey starts at home
Before our first appointment I'll ask you to complete some preliminary health questionnaires and health assessment forms and gather results of any recent medical test results and investigations. This will allow me to come to the initial consultation with an awareness of your personal circumstances.
The initial consultation
In our first consultation I will thoroughly explore your whole health, hormone/reproductive health, gut health, nervous system, immune system, lifestyle, diet, medical history and genetics to identify any barriers to fertility, conception, pregnancy or the future baby’s health. We'll discuss your past pregnancies and family health history and I'll review any previous testing or examinations, making recommendations for any future testing.
We will have enough time to develop a plan that works for you and is realistic and achievable. I'll answer your questions and concerns and you’ll leave with some practical nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. A personalised treatment plan will help you supplement any barriers that may inhibit fertility, including evidence-based dietary and lifestyle recommendations, as well as a prescription for supplements, if necessary.
Treatment plan and investigations
After we first meet you will start to incorporate my recommendations into your lifestyle. This may include tracking ovulation signs, menstrual cycle symptoms and basal body temperature charting. I can guarantee it will also include “date nights” and activities that bring you joy. You will be starting to make space in your life for a baby!
If I have identified the need for further testing, these will happen during this time.
We usually schedule our second meeting after 4 weeks, allowing time to implement first steps. We'll talk about any test results during that time and we'll also review what's been working for you and discuss your goals.
We may need to adjust the prescription of supplements, set new goals for your treatment, and schedule future appointments. I will give you an idea of how long it will take to see results.
I generally recommend at least two follow up appointments over three months to ensure sustainable results, but many of my clients like to continue to work with me for longer until they conceive or throughout their pregnancy. '
No two fertility journeys are the same; some of my clients only need to have two consultations to get their diet and lifestyle in order, whereas other clients need more ongoing support. And, of course it depends on how long it takes to fall pregnant!

Applying preventive and holistic medicine for preconception care and optimising fertility.
I have seen first-hand how naturopathic care can increase your ability to become pregnant (naturally or IVF treatment), reduce the risk of miscarriage, and support a healthy uncomplicated pregnancy, and give your baby a good start in life.
Naturopathic treatment works best when both partners are engaged and have the opportunity to address any issues that may compromise fertility. I encourage my clients to take the time to reduce any toxic exposure, achieve a healthy body composition and nutritional status to give every opportunity for fertility, an uncomplicated pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Conception involves both female and male partners equally. In order to give your new baby the very best start in life it’s essential to support the health of both parents in the time leading up to conception.
Men are often overlooked in the preconception stages, but their contribution is, of course, extremely important. Sperm production requires adequate nutritional levels and an absence of chemicals so it is vital to include both partners in a preconception care.
I often see stress and nutrition as major factors impacting fertility, and as such these important areas that I like to focus on in the preconception phase of growing your family.
