Restorative Reproductive Medicine

Be empowered with preconception health guidance in Path To Conscious Conception, here

When it comes to baby making, the events of conception that occur within the body never cease to amaze me.  There are many hormones at play to do their intricate dance, follicles to ripen and mature, sperm to show up fighting fit and ready to meet the healthy egg, follicular tubes to be clear, the presence of nurturing cervical mucus and a plump nutrient rich endometrium, ready for the implanted fertilised egg to flourish. It truely is magical.

Because of the intricacies involved, natural conception often doesn't happen as soon as first hoped. Fear can often get in the way and terms like "unexplained infertility" are quickly thrown around by healthcare providers. 

While I understand there are times when it is needed to bring a baby into your world, what I encourage as a Naturopath is to ensure my patients gain holistic health care, so the multiple areas of fertility are addressed holistically before rushing into assisted reproductive procedures, such as IVF.

To help unpack this for you today, I have a detailed chat to share with you with Dr Cathy Peterson. 

Dr Catherine Peterson is a GP with a special interest in restorative reproductive medicine (RRM). She uses RRM to manage many conditions including infertility (both male and female factors), pregnancies at risk of miscarriage, irregular periods, PCOS, abnormal menstrual bleeding, and PMS.  

Restorative reproductive medicine looks for underlying causes and treats those causes to achieve reproductive health and hormonal balance. She uses her knowledge from her NaProTECHNOLOGY TM  training, and multiple FEMM™ Medical Management training courses.

She can assist women wanting fertility education to avoid pregnancy and also offers obstetric shared care.
