Holistic Fertility Support
There are dozens of things that factor into a person or couple's odds of getting pregnant: Egg quality. Sperm quality. Hormone balance. Ovulation. Timing. Diet. Environmental exposures. Stress. Exercise. The list goes on and on! Making healthy changes can have a HUGE impact on the health of your eggs and or sperm, and therefore a huge impact on your odds of getting pregnant each cycle.
Getting Pregnant at Home
For couples that have the option, getting pregnant at home without any major interventions is a blessing! Not only does it save tons of money, it saves you from dozens of medical visits, blood draws, ultrasounds - all of which are worth it, if it means having a child, but why not avoid these if you can?
Getting guidance on timing, fertility monitoring, diet, stress reduction, hormone regulation, and fertility-boosting herbs and supplements can make all the difference. Of the couples I've worked with who are trying to get pregnant at home without ART, over 60% have achieved a pregnancy within 6 months.*
IUI and Medicated Cycles
Sometimes all you need is a little bit of help! Intrauterine insemination or medicated cycles can benefit from holistic support by increasing sperm and / or egg health, decreasing inflammation in issues such as autoimmune conditions, and supporting ovulation.
IVF may be the best (or only) option for people who have been trying at home for an extended period of time, people who are in their late 30's or early 40's, queer / trans couples, and people with certain genetic conditions.
When it comes to beneficial herbs and supplements, diet changes, and other lifestyle factors, we have more information on increasing IVF success rates than any other way of achieving a pregnancy. The research is excellent, and because of that, there are tons of natural therapies such as specific nutrient supplementation and fertility-specific diets have been shown to as much as double the number of fertilized eggs after a retrieval and dramatically improve egg and embryo quality, making it more likely for a cycle to result in a live birth.
