And Holistic Fertility Support
Conceiving can be challenging for some. Certain diagnoses, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), are associated with reduced fertility. However, diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes can have a profound effect on fertility and improve ones overall health immensely.
Working with a Certified Nurse Midwife and Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach might be just what you need to reach your goals. Together we can make sure that you understand your cycles, optimal timing for conception each cycle, How to detect ovulation by methods such as assessing your cervical mucus, basal body temperature (BBT), hormone/lab testing options, ovulation prediction options and more.
For those struggling with fertility from other causes, including the majority whose cause remains unknown, maintaining optimal health and wellness is of equal importance and will help promote healthier pregnancies and birth outcomes. Even if you are already planning Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Mother Wit services can be an important adjunct to your care plan.
Fertility and Exercise
Research has shown that women who have an established exercise routine before pregnancy are more likely to continue exercising throughout the pregnancy. And get this: these women may have shorter labors and fewer cesarean sections! So if you are planning a pregnancy and are hoping to optimize your experience and outcome, I'm looking forward to working with you.
Fertility and Nutrition
Nutrition can have a profound effect on your fertility. Consider a consultation to assess where there may be room for changes. While some may only need a consultation and reassurance, others can benefit from ongoing support which can make all the difference for families trying to make long term, sustainable changes that will become part of a healthy lifestyle that will last a lifetime.
