Who does it help?
- Women who want to try to conceive on their own without pursuing “medicalized conception” (drugs and procedures) for health, moral, or financial reasons.
- Women who are burnt out on doctor initiated treatments or have been labeled “poor responders”, or “unexplained infertility”, or who have observed their physical and/or emotional health has declined as byproduct of fertility treatments offered by their doctor.
- Women who want to take control of their fertility personally by contributing to their own wellness as a primary strategy for conception.
