Natural Fertility Support

You and your partner have decided that you want to grow your family. Perhaps you are new to the idea, or maybe you've been trying for some time without success. Regardless of where you are on your fertility journey, Dr. Geil can help. She offers comprehensive fertility care for both men and women who are planning, actively trying, and/or struggling to conceive. Because she recognizes that every patient is unique, she takes time to thoroughly assess your case and aims to provide you with a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs. Several factors are known to influence fertility so it is her job to identify those that are specific to you. Treatments include modalities such as diet and lifestyle counselling, nutrition, supplementation, fertility focused acupuncture, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, and botanical medicine. 

Are you...?

to conceive?

Setting the foundations for conception is essential in anyone wanting to start or grow their family. After all, you wouldn't plant a seed before first nourishing the soil, right? Even if you aren't quite yet ready to start trying for a baby there is a lot that can be done to help prepare your body for when you are. This extra care will serve to improve your odds of conception when you do start trying, will minimize the risk of complications during pregnancy/birth, and will enhance the health of your baby well into their adult life.

By now you've set your plan, put your foundations in place, and have decided that it is time to actively start trying. But where to start? Dr. Geil will help to take the guesswork out of it all by working closely with you to help optimize your cycle and ensure that you are trying at the appropriate time. She will provide you and your partner with everything that you need to increase your chances of success, whether that be with dietary modifications, bio-identical hormones, acupuncture, vitamins/minerals, botanicals, or nutrients.

If you are at the point where you have been trying for several months/years without success or have sought help from a fertility clinic, you may require some additional support. Dr. Geil will work in conjunction with the rest of your healthcare team to provide treatments that are adjunctive to your regular fertility care. During this time it may be necessary to do more in-depth testing in order to uncover the missing pieces of the puzzle. By considering all angles of your health, it is her aim to get to the bottom of what underlies your struggle.
