We’re digging into eczema and why this matters when you are TTC. I had eczema when I was a baby, and then it flared up in my teens. I remember having itchy eyelids, my lips were allergic to every type of lip balm (they were always cracked and dry), and the skin folds of my arms were red and raw from all my scratching. I tried every type of cream, b…
 
We’re digging into how and why addressing stress with the HeartMath methodology can help when TTC. Like many of you, I stopped setting new year’s resolutions and instead focus on intentions. Daily practices are so foundational for my sanity. Such as having a good sleep, getting outside once a day, eating food that makes me feel great and talking to…
 
We’re digging into why focusing on mitochondrial health is essential for fertility. I know you may be taking supplements to improve your fertility. After all, diet and lifestyle changes alone are not enough to optimize reproductive health. Our Fab Fertile Method includes testing, and we develop a targeted protocol including foundational supplements…
 
We’re digging into why gluten matters if you are TTC. I get this question all the time, “Should I go gluten free if I’m trying to conceive?” As you may know, I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency at 28 and had both my kids with donor eggs. Years later I discovered food sensitivities, gut infections and chronic stress were the cause o…
 
We’re digging into common mistakes we see on the fertility journey. I started the Get Pregnant Naturally podcast five (5) years ago on January 1, 2018. In the beginning, I recorded with audio only because the thought of doing video was too intimidating. I like to prepare my episodes beforehand, so I thought it would look weird if I were always refe…
 
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 re…
 
We’re digging into the research on how to manage stress with heart rate variability. We all know that stress matters when we are TTC. But how do we quickly identify and address the stressors in our lives? Right now, you may be meditating, visualizing, practicing breathwork, doing yoga, progressive muscle relaxation, acupuncture and more to reduce s…
 
We’re digging into identifying and recovering from burnout when you are on the fertility journey. Chronic stress and burnout can sneak up on us, especially when we are in the middle of a struggle. The fertility journey can impact our lives, including social interactions, relationships, careers, joy and intimacy. You may be feeling overwhelmed with …
 
We’re digging into why eating liver can help when you are TTC. I remember my mom frying up liver on the stove when I was a kid (she would now cringe at this because she’s been a vegan for 35 years!). The smell made me gag, and I would run and hide in the other room so I didn’t have to eat it. I recently tried it again, sautéed with onions and spice…
 
We’re digging into how to navigate the holiday season when we’re on the fertility journey. The holiday season can be filled with triggers and well-meaning (but clueless people) asking, “When will you start a family?” or “Are you pregnant yet?” How do we handle an invitation we don’t want to attend? Or what about the person that posts a steady strea…
 
We’re digging into why quitting your job may be your next step when you are TTC. Working on your mental health and reducing stress is a common recommendation when trying to conceive. And sometimes this can be easier said than done. If you could reduce stress by yourself, you already would have done it. A main source of stress can be the job. Whethe…
 
We’re digging into common mistakes we see on the fertility journey. As we come to the end of the year, I want you to have a plan for 2023 so that you can have your baby. I know you may have made many diet/lifestyle changes already. You may have experienced failed IVF cycles, been labeled a poor responder, or been told that donor eggs are your only …
 
We’re digging into how to improve liver health and what you need to know when you are TTC. We’ve all heard of a liver cleanse or detox and how important it is to have an optimally functioning liver. Think of cayenne-infused lemon water, consuming apple juice with olive oil and Epsom salts. However, before you start preparing these concoctions, they…
 
We’re digging into the hyperactive thyroid and Graves’ disease and what this means when TTC. One of the main themes we see with low AMH and or high FSH is thyroid dysfunction. You may have been told your TSH is normal, but no one has run a full thyroid panel. Or you are currently taking thyroid medication, but you had no idea there were targeted li…
 
We’re digging into at-home semen testing and why this can help when TTC. Although we specialize in complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, and premature ovarian insufficiency, more couples are coming to us with both female and male factor infertility. The Fab Fertile Method is effective at addressing both male and femal…
 
We’re digging into iron panels and what you need to know when you are TTC. So many of us may be experiencing amenorrhea, anovulation (the lack of ovulation), poor egg health, ovulatory disorder, and miscarriage, but has anyone checked the full iron panel? Iron deficiency or anemia can be a sign to dig deeper when trying to conceive. Whether you are…
 
We’re digging into the energetics of miscarriage and how to begin healing when you are TTC. The fertility journey can leave us feeling anxious, impatient, frustrated, and sad, and it can bring out our inner control freak. It can also bring us to our knees if we’ve experienced miscarriage, pregnancy loss or stillbirth. How do we trust that the unive…
 
We’re digging into why protecting yourself from EMFs matters when you are TTC. Studies have proven that EMFs (electromagnetic fields) negatively impact male and female reproductive health. Whether it's our cell phone, computer, WiFi, microwave, house energy smart meters, or TV – we are surrounded by EMFs. It’s not about living in fear. It’s about w…
 
We’re digging into digestion and why this matters when you are TTC. Many of us are consuming all the right foods. Eating lots of fat, getting our daily veggies and generally eating a healthy diet. But what if you are well-fed but malnourished? We see this a lot with couples who are trying to conceive. It is essential that you actually absorb the nu…
 
We’re digging into how to cultivate an abundance mindset when you are TTC. Getting stuck in a scarcity mindset on the fertility journey is easy. After all, a well-meaning physician may have told you that your AMH is too low, your FSH is too high, IVF is your only chance (and even then, there is a small chance of it working ), or that donor eggs are…
 
We’re digging into what to do if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer while on the fertility journey and how to prevent cancer. I have received many requests to provide information about navigating a cancer diagnosis while trying to conceive. Many of us have been touched by cancer, perhaps through a personal diagnosis or by a family member, friend, or…
 
We’re digging into how childhood trauma can impact the fertility journey. Our Fab Fertile Method takes a mind, body, and spirit approach to improve pregnancy success. A theme we see with low AMH, high FSH, premature ovarian insufficiency and diminished ovarian reserve is childhood trauma. Whether it's experiencing flashbacks, anxiety, depression, a…
 
We're digging into how the elimination diet can improve pregnancy success. The first place we start with the couples in our Fab Fertile Couples Coaching Program is the elimination diet. It is the gold standard to figure out if you have a food sensitivity, and we have BOTH partners do the elimination diet (it is not just about you changing your diet…
 
We’re digging into how EMDR can help improve pregnancy success. The fertility journey can be filled with triggers, heartbreak and frustration. A theme we see with couples on the fertility journey is trauma. We often see childhood trauma (i.e. physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical neglect. emotional neglect. mental illness, divorce…
 
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 …
 
We’re digging into the top trends in women's health and femtech. My goal for the podcast is to bring you cutting-edge practices in functional medicine, functional nutrition, mindset and spirituality so that you can increase your chances of pregnancy success. I’m excited to share the latest in femtech, sexual health (yes, we’re talking erotica), at-…
