We’re digging into how tracking our hormones can help improve pregnancy success.

Tracking our hormones can be confusing, triggering and frustrating (sometimes all at once).

There are a lot of fertility trackers on the market.

How do we really know our hormone status without spending time getting blood drawn every month?

How can knowing our hormone numbers empower us rather than causing additional stress?

Today I'm excited to we...

We’re digging into what your blood chemistry results mean for your fertility.

You may have been told that your blood work is “normal.” Or you may have been told that some markers are out of balance.

Sometimes medication can be given to bring these markers into balance, but typically there is no strategy to address WHY there is an imbalance in the first place.

This can lead to frustration and confusion. You may even feel like IVF is...

We’re digging into what to do next if you’ve already tried all the diet/lifestyle strategies, but they’re not working.

When you're trying to solve a problem - it's tempting to try ALL the things. We naturally assume that doing everything will be better than focusing on one at a time - or get us quicker results.

But doing everything just puts you and your partner in a state of overwhelm and makes it even MORE difficult to id...

We’re digging into sexual health and how we can increase intimacy while TTC.

Ultimately what we all want is connection. During the fertility journey, the connection with our partner may be strained, and intimacy can be less about pleasure and more about babymaking.

What if we could reconnect and deepen our connection with our partner? What if truly being present, vulnerable, and sharing was the road to deeper intimacy and better se...

We’re digging into lipid panels and what you need to know when you are TTC.

So many of us are afraid of fat. The low-fat craze was a bait and switch tactic to get us addicted to sugar.

We need healthy fats when we are trying to conceive. We’re doing a deep dive into the lipid panel so that you can understand what these markers mean for your fertility.

Even if you’ve been told your cholesterol is perfect or that your triglycerides a...

We’re digging into why these symptoms matter when you are TTC.

Many times we get myopically focused on egg health and miss all the other symptoms that may be contributing to our fertility diagnosis.

Our body wants to procreate, but right now, it may be under attack by seemingly healthy foods, gut infections, environmental toxins and more.

We can research and figure out what worked for someone else or take a targeted approach and de...

We’re digging into the fertility awareness method and how this can help us more accurately track our fertile days.

Many women we work with have irregular cycles, absent cycles, absent cervical mucus, anovulation, excessive or light bleeding with periods, irregular basal body temperature and more.

This can be very frustrating because our menstrual cycle gives us vital clues that tell us a lot about our fertility. And if you’re relyi...

We’re digging into how to be joyful now when you are TTC.

Have you ever thought, “I’ll be happy when I have my baby”?

Chasing happiness can make us feel stuck and take us out of the present moment.

So many of us on the fertility journey have put joy on hold.

We spend our time researching fertility, feeling stuck in comparison and triggered by baby announcements or figuring out how to avoid going to a baby shower.

Setting boundaries...

We’re digging into the connection between food and mood and why this matters when you are TTC.

We all know that we are what we eat.

But do we really know how food impacts our mood?

For years I was eating food that did not support my body or fertility.

Before I figured out the food/mood connection, I thought I was irritable, cranky and anxious.

As I began understanding exactly how what I place on my fork daily dramatically impacts m...

We’re digging into the biggest mistakes we see in hiring a fertility practitioner.

There’s a lot of information about what you need to do to improve your fertility.

You may be making the changes by yourself or you may be ready to hire an expert to help you figure out how to fast-track your chances of pregnancy success.

Whether you’ve had failed or cancelled cycles or been told donor eggs are your only option, there is hope for you ...

We’re digging into energy and how to trust that you can get pregnant and have your baby.

The fertility journey can feel like a roller coaster filled with uncertainty, comparison, anger, jealousy and grief.

You can be swept up by overwhelming emotions that leave you feeling powerless and hopeless.

Or you can meet your miracle part way.

That is why our Fab Fertile Method includes the mind, body, and spirit approach.

Because if you do...

We’re digging into how to select a fertility acupuncturist

We recommend acupuncture to our clients as part of our Fab Fertile Method.

Let’s face it, many practitioners offer acupuncture as part of their services.

But do they have the appropriate training to help with fertility?

It can be confusing so we’re breaking down how to select a fertility acupuncturist so that you don’t waste time or money as you prepare for pregnancy succes...

We’re digging into autism and why this matters when you are TTC.

Focusing on preconception health is important for your health, postpartum period and the health of your children.

I didn’t focus on my health prior to having my children and my postpartum period was rough. Both my kids have food sensitivities, asthma, ear infections, ADHD and more.

It may feel like we need to rush to the fertility clinic to get pregnant ASAP. After al...

We’re digging into why including your partner on the fertility journey sets you up for success.

Both the male and female partner needs to focus on preconception health to improve pregnancy success.

It’s not about the woman changing everything in her life and no one has even completed a semen analysis.

What we find is that most male partners are very supportive. However, they may not know how to optimize pregnancy success.

Or we see...

We’re digging into how the thyroid impact fertility.

For years I was told my thyroid was “normal”… but my hair was falling out in chunks, my skin looked like a lizard and I had cold feet and hands.

Not until I pushed my doctor to look beyond the TSH did my symptoms begin to improve.

Looking only at the TSH does not give us the whole picture.

If you are struggling to conceive or if you have an ovulation disorder, irregular menstrual...

We’re digging into how to know if IVF is your next best step to improve your chances of pregnancy success.

You probably feel like you’ve already tried everything.

And although IVF can be successful (average 30% success rate) what about the couple that has failed cycles? It's heartbreaking and financially devastating.

Before you commit emotionally and financially to another IVF cycle I want you to know the exact steps you can ta...

We’re digging into how the biology of trauma impacts the fertility journey.

If you are like me you can probably take on a lot. I’m a doer. If you want it done call me.

But at what cost to my health?

When I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency at 28 I went straight into action.

I didn’t take any time to grieve.

I didn’t stop to listen to what my body was desperately trying to tell me.

I went straight to donor eggs.

We’re digging into pelvic floor health and why this matters if you are TTC.

Our Fab Fertile Method takes a personalized approach to fertility so that we can address missed healing opportunities that uncover the reason why you may be struggling to conceive.

There are many types of stressors that could impact your body, from mental/emotional stress to food sensitivities, gut infections, environmental toxins and structural stress.

We’re digging into how emotional eating impacts the fertility journey.

As you may know, optimizing the diet is one of the first steps in our Fab Fertile Method.

But what if you are ready to upgrade your diet and optimize your fertility but you’re an emotional eater?

You may find yourself with a healthy eating plan but then life intervenes and you drown your feelings in a bag of chips or a pint of ice cream.

It can be a vicious cycl...
