Dr. Kara’s Story
When I was about 20, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I had to get two surgeries to remove the massive cyst, and I eventually had to get one of my ovaries removed.

Doctors told me I would probably be infertile. When I eventually decided to try to become pregnant, I had 5 miscarriages.

It was a dark time in my life. I was completely heartbroken. I felt like no one could help me, and I couldn’t talk about it with anyone because most of my friends were successfully getting pregnant and having babies.

So I suffered in silence.

If I had known then what I know now about natural fertility support, I believe I would have been able to naturally conceive my first child.

Now I know how depleted my body was from the endometriosis, years of hormone imbalance, and exposure to environmental toxins. But at the time, I turned to the only potential solution I could.

I went to an IVF clinic.

Without the support of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbs, and dietary changes, the IVF might not have worked for me.

Which is why I believe so strongly that the natural fertility work we do can be life-changing, even for women on the IVF path. Because that was me.

After years of studying naturopathic fertility support, my body was able to heal itself and I became pregnant with my daughter completely naturally.

That’s why I always ask women: Why not do everything you can to support your body during the process, and turn it into the best soil possible for life to grow?
Most doctors would never look at my case of severe endometriosis and think I could naturally conceive.

I’ll never forget how painful my experience with infertility was. The heartbreak of miscarriages. The false hope. Trying everything under the sun and having no results. And the awful physical pain from the endometriosis.

Learning firsthand how chaotic IVF can be, the constant medication changes and doctor appointments, the painful progesterone shots, not to mention all the stress… that all put me on the path I’m on today.

Now, I have 2 beautiful healthy children and I’ve dedicated my life to helping other women get pregnant naturally!

Dr. Hillary’s Story
I was the girl who never got her period. When I was 22, a doctor told me I had PCOS and would likely be infertility.

I had been taking the pill, but now I realized that I’d been covering up a problem instead of trying to get to the bottom of why I didn’t have a period in the first place.
It felt like no one was helping me to figure this out.

And it was so frustrating to feel like I couldn’t do a very basic thing the body is supposed to do — have a regular period and get pregnant.

It was hopeless and terrifying. I had an overwhelming sense that I didn’t understand what my body was telling me.

Watching everyone around me get pregnant didn’t help... and all the guilt that came with struggling to feel happy for other people when all I wanted was a baby of my own.

And it seemed like nothing I was doing was working.

So I turned to a naturopathic doctor for homeopathic remedies.

I started regulating my cycle. I changed my diet. I balanced out the hormonal imbalances that were caused by the PCOS.

When I wanted to get pregnant, my cycles were three months long. So trying to figure out when I was ovulating was difficult.

I had already known I would want to get pregnant one day, so I had started doing all this work a year in advance.

And when it was time to get pregnant, my body was ready.

I got pregnant, naturally!

That’s when I switched my focus from psychiatry to become a naturopathic doctor instead. I knew I wanted to spend my life helping other women naturally conceive the same way I had.

I’ll never forget how terrifying, confusing, and lonely it was to struggle with infertility. To feel like I couldn’t trust my body. And the shame and horror I felt when doctors told me, a health-conscious 22 year old, that I would probably never get pregnant.

Now, years after all the natural fertility work I did, I’m grateful to have 3 healthy teenagers!

Since then…

We’ve spent a combined 30 years helping other women in our natural fertility clinics.
And we’ve developed scientifically-supported plans for helping women to support the quality and health of their eggs.

We want to give you everything we’ve learned over the years.
