Are you ready to uncover the secret combination that is going to get you pregnant? How many times have you been promised that this one thing is the thing that is going to work for you?
Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
The bad news (why do people always want the bad news first?) is that there is no one thing.
The good news is that once you learn to slow down, get rid of all the crap that isn’t helping and make some space, you can figure out what is going to work for you – imperfectly perfect, unique, bloody beautiful you.
Let’s find the things that are going to make the biggest difference.
You’ve worked so bloody hard to get where you are in your career, your partner and your home and now you have no control with the most important thing in your whole life.
It’s terrifying, I know.
We were told again and again that we could “have it all” – careers and a family life. So we did it, we worked tirelessly to earn our spot at the table, get our voices heard and now – when you are ready to start your family – they turn around and say “oh sorry you’re too old”, “you’re too stressed”, or just shrug their shoulders and say “unexplained infertility”
It’s not fucking OK.
Believe me I get it. I was 16 when I was told I wouldn’t be able to have kids. I thought for all my adult life that getting pregnant would be a struggle.
I went through the motions and ticked off all the things I was supposed to do:
Uni – check
Job – check
Husband – check
House – check
But it took a complete twist in my life story (you can read more about it here) to get me where I am today – a fertility coach, naturopath & acupuncturist, but most importantly a mother to two very free spirited boys.
I’m a proud, fat feminist and I’m determined to create change in the fertility field. Women should have the ability to create the family that they choose regardless of age, size, ability or sexuality. I’m here in hold your hand and guide you to a healthier, happier you. I can’t promise the world and I definitely can’t get you pregnant but I can help you make this time in your life a hell of a lot happier.
Getting pregnant is too important to leave to chance and I know that is why you’ve done everything humanly possible to figure out that magic combination that is going to work. Unfortunately throwing everything at in only leads to maxed out credit cards, complete mental overwhelm and having your life completely taken over by your fertility journey.
I don’t want you to to be left wondering where your 30’s and 40’s went – a fog of fertility treatments, online forums and timed intercourse. These are the years when we can finally let go of all our insecurities, yell “fuck you all” to the world and do our own thing our way.
That is why I started the fertility freedom family.
I’m yelling “fuck it” to the world and supporting women in a whole different way.
This isn’t about sitting on our meditation cushions, reciting our mantras and willing ourselves to get pregnant (although I love me a bit of woo woo). This is about finally listening to our bodies in an actual real life way (cue nerdy experiment time!) and ONLY doing the things that are going to have a positive impact on our health, wellbeing and fertility.

The Fertility Freedom Family is here to lift you up and offer you help in whatever decisions you make on your journey. There is no judgement only love.
Since joining the group I’m less anxious about my fertility, I’m understanding more about myself and what my needs are. I love the feeling of that extra support and encouragement from the group when I’m feeling frustrated.Heather N.
Nicola is one of my go to support people.
I feel like I can be super honest with her and not be judged for anything. She doesn’t push me in any particular direction, which is really nice. I worked with a reproduction specialist who was very much focusing on the negative and making me feel guilty. She was not a great fit for my people pleasing personality, and I emailed her that I wouldn’t be needing her services anymore. I need positivity and love around me. And I feel like I have that with Nicola and the group.AH
Each month we explore tools so we can get rid of useless diets, unhelpful beliefs and negative patterns to make space for more ease, more joy and more life. The women in the Fertility Freedom Family are phenomenal. We have a facebook group for daily connection and a monthly group call – a virtual coffee and chat.
This isn’t a group where we bitch and moan.
This is a group where we lift each other up. There is no judgement, only love. Getting the support you need can be hard when you are on your fertility journey. Maybe you find it difficult to talk to your friends or family about what you’re going through. Maybe they listen, but you know they don’t really get it. Having a group of women who are going through what you’re going through, who understand how you feel is one of the best feelings.
Research shows that support and friendships between women releases a hormone called oxytocin (the love hormone). This hormone helps to counteract the stress hormones and regulate lots of other hormones, especially ones used for our reproductive health. We have evolved to use a “tend and befriend” strategy to reduce stress levels and improve our wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I get pregnant?
When you get pregnant, you have the option to join the pregnancy group and continue your membership there. The journey doesn’t end with a positive pregnancy test so having a support network with others who are going through their pregnancy post-fertility issues and have made it to the other side with healthy and happy children is priceless.
Is this membership useful for me if I'm going through IVF?
100%. IVF and other assisted reproductive techniques are unlike anything else you’ll go through. Having a group of women who get it is your secret weapon. We’ll be there for the hormonal highs and lows, the injections, the endless waiting for the phone calls and everything in between. This kind of care should be prescribed along with the truckload of meds you get.
Is this membership useful for me if I’m just starting out on my fertility journey?
You don’t need to have been trying for 5 years or going through IVF to be worthy of help. You are worthy of support now and by joining the Fertility Freedom Family, you are starting on the right foot and giving yourself the best chance to not only succeed in getting pregnant, but doing it in a way that is nourishing and joyful. The sooner you find your people, the better.
Is this membership useful for me if I’ve been diagnosed with PCOS/Endometriosis/Adenomyosis/low AMH/if I’m an older women/if I’m overweight?
I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 16 and have worked with women with every type of fertility challenge. Each of these conditions presents it’s own challenges which I’m here to help with. More importantly though, we are all women facing a challenging part of our lives. The Fertility Freedom Family provides a safe home for us to face those challenges together in whatever form they appear.
