Description

A quick Google search will tell you that the business of fertility is booming. But has anyone stopped to ask why fertility problems are on the rise? What do we actually need to know when conceiving? Today’s guest, Dr Aumatma Simmons, a holistic fertility expert helping couples to optimize all the aspects of their health in order to make a baby. Join us to learn the basics of what you should look for in your cervical mucus to track your fertile period, and to hear why Dr Aumatma believes we should assess our hormones on as regular a basis as we go for a pap smear. We take a moment to consider the freedom of choice we all have when it comes to having, or not having children, and how both choices are valid. We talk about the transition from focusing on doing, to focusing on being, necessary to conceive a child, and explore some of the toxin-free options that exist today, allowing us to live lifestyles that are completely toxin-free. Dr Aumatma tells us some surprising facts about the thyroid, still being explored by modern science, and she shares how she equips women to unravel the fast-paced lifestyles they have made for themselves. You’ll hear why your partner’s health matters, and what the basics are that they should consider during a fertility journey, including some lesser-known factors in male sexual health. Join us today to learn from another incredible expert in her field.
