By Razi Berry

Many women feel a primal urge to reproduce and have a child, so how do you cope when your fertility is not serving you the way you intended? Dr. Aumatma Shah is a Naturopathic Medicine Doctor with a Masters in Nutrition who focuses on hormonal health and helping women have a child without shame or regret. Dr. Aumatma abides by the mantra that when you are having trouble conceiving, it is your body's way of telling you to alter something buried underneath. Once you are able to address those root causes, your ability to start or grow your family will be at your fingertips. By taking a step back and analyzing which symptoms may be inhibiting your body from getting pregnant, understanding how to test for specific egg quality and sperm analysis and the role age plays in pregnancy, and by gaining a sense of what your own unique fertility plan should look like, you can step into your next life phase with ease. Dr. Aumatma believes in customized treatments and an open mindset to get the results you deserve and the healthiest possible baby. Whatever your personal view on fertility treatments and how you get pregnant, today we are asking the hard questions to get to the answers on what is going to be the best pregnancy plan for you. If you are struggling with fertility, there is nothing wrong with you, all you need is to be able to listen to what your body is telling you with the help of a trained specialist. Dr. Aumatma is looking at fertility issues across the age spectrum to help deliver the most optimal fertility treatment plan for your body.

And once you do those things, often getting pregnant becomes really easy.” (30:30) “We are basing so much of [fertility] on age when we have really good viable tests that could give us way more information, so let's get the information.” (46:17) “I think it is really about customizing and really making sure that we are talking to the woman in front of us.” (49:41)   Links Holistic Fertility Centre with Dr. Aumatma Website Fertility Secrets: What Your Doctor Didn’t Tell You About Baby-Making Follow Dr. Aumatma on Facebook |  Twitter | YouTube   Find the full show notes for this episode here Keep up with all things Love Is Medicine Follow Razi on Facebook |Instagram
