Fertility &
IVF Support

There are many reasons why a couple may find it difficult to fall pregnant. Infertility is essentially a sign that something is out of balance in the body but it can often be easily corrected, when addressed naturally.  Phoebe will investigate and identify the contributing factors to her clients infertility and then formulate an individual treatment plan incorporating herbal medicine, nutritional supplements and dietary and lifestyle advice to bring the body back to optimal health and balance so it is ready to conceive naturally. Her work also extends to the health of the male partner as research has shown that around 40% of infertility cases in Australia can be attributed male factors. By improving the health of both partners and improving the quality of the eggs and sperm there is a much higher chance of a healthy conception.

 

Phoebe has had extensive experience and an in depth understanding of what it takes for the body to conceive, grow and nurture a healthy baby. Not only will the treatments she prescribes increase the chance of a healthy conception, they can also lower the risk of your child developing problems during its time in the uterus that can lead to health issues with the baby. Problems prevented can be either mental or physical such as allergies, mental health issues, neural tube defects, and developmental delays. These issues can be due to sub optimal health status of the eggs and sperm, and can in part be attributed to today’s stressful lifestyles, poor diet choices and high exposure to chemicals, toxins and hormone disrupting compounds.  Toxin exposure or nutritional deficiencies that may otherwise have no discernible impact on adult health, can have a detrimental impact when they occur at crucial stages in the development of a growing foetus.

 

Phoebe has had much success with helping couples fall pregnant and experience the joy of a healthy, problem free pregnancy.  She understands that your needs differ throughout preconception, conception, each of the 3 trimesters of pregnancy, during birth and throughout breastfeeding. Phoebe will help steer you through each of these stages to improve your chance of  an easy conception, a problem free pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby.
