Your Motherhood Journey Starts Here

“Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops… at all.” –  Emily Dickinson

Whether you are thinking about starting a family, undergoing fertility treatments, or struggling to maintain a pregnancy we are here to support you.

The state of your health (the environment in which an egg is fertilized and baby develops/grows) is a critical factor when it comes to your fertility, your ability to have a successful pregnancy and to the health of your baby.  Your lifestyle, nutrition, hormones, environment and mental/emotional health all play a huge role.  Just like we would ensure the soil in our garden is optimized for planting seed and other plants, so too we must ensure the body is optmied to grow life.  Since it takes roughly 90 days to improve sperm health and egg quality, improving your overall health in the months leading to conception is essential to improving your odds of becoming and staying pregnant.

Here at The Nest, our team of skilled practitioners can support you and your partner along this journey.  We work with you and your medical team to ensure your body is in an optimal place for a successful pregnancy.

We provide collaborative, multi-disciplinary care that results in improved fertility, successful pregnancies and healthy babies. Each patient’s fertility optimization plan is customized to their specific needs and may include:
