Helping you create the family you dreamed of.
Sometimes getting pregnant is harder than it should be.
Your doctor may not be able to give you the reason why, but it doesn’t alter the fact that it’s not happening.
"Around 1 in 7 couples have trouble conceiving which can’t be explained medically."
Often even IVF (in vitro fertilization) or IUI (Intrauterine insemination) does not help alone.

You are what you eat. When it comes to fertility it is no different.
Eating a healthy diet can be very helpful but knowing what is right for fertility health is a minefield.
Women who work with me find improving their diet and taking herbal medicine improves their chances of conceiving naturally and of successful IVF.
In cases where egg quality and follicle number have been poor my patients have reported improvements in quality and number of healthy eggs. Typically my patients have produced grade 'A' eggs and hatching blastocysts at egg harvest and implantation.
Men: Around 48% of infertility originates with a male partner. Sperm quality, number and motility have been improved in my male patients using herbs, diet and lifestyle changes. Occasionally supplementation with micronutrients may also be necessary.
