Leesa Young 🌿 Fertility Naturopath
Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience on all things natural fertility, hormones, reproductive health and preconception care. Have a look around and if you have any questions at any time don't hesitate to drop me a message!
My name's Leesa Young, I'm a naturopath and nutritionist with a practice in Glen Iris, in the leafy Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Through the articles and resources on this website, I'd love to help you learn about how to improve your hormonal and reproductive health, and understand how natural fertility can optimise your chances for a healthy, happy baby.
Fertility really is a reflection of your overall state of health, so it is my goal to help you become the most healthy & fertile version of yourself. Through understanding your cycles, balancing your hormones, improving the health of your eggs and your uterine lining, and improving sperm health in your partner, we can work together to optimise your chances of conceiving the healthy baby you've dreamed of.
I can support you wherever you are on your fertility journey. I offer a comprehensive and practical approach to preconception health, which aims to optimise the health of your egg & sperm prior to conception, and take an in-depth look at your current hormone health to make sure your cycles are following their optimal natural rhythm.
Natural IVF Support
I have the training and experience to unpack and understand your fertility history, however complex it may be. We can work to reduce the impact of diagnoses such as PCOS, endometriosis, adenomyosis and auto-immune conditions; and support low follicle counts, low sperm counts and poor sperm morphology and motility.
Additionally, I can support you navigate the world of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as IVF and ICSI. Help with preparing for cycles, managing symptoms, minimising side effects, improving endometrial receptivity, reducing risk of miscarriage and improving sperm parameters are some of the benefits of working with a trained naturopath through your cycles. Perhaps most valuable of all is the support for your physical, emotional and mental health that naturopathic treatments can provide during the intense and stressful experience that IVF can be.
Your Fertility Journey
Most importantly: My role here is to help you understand that you're not alone! There are so many women right now seeking help with reproductive and fertility challenges. Most of us are living reasonably healthy lives, making healthy choices, so it can be so frustrating to find your body isn't doing what you expected it to do.
I'd like to help guide you to a place where you feel better, where you can start moving back towards a place where you feel in control of your health, your body and your fertility, and what the next best steps are for you. Our aim is always to get you the healthy pregnancy and baby that you've been working so hard for.
And the best thing about this process? Once you've worked your way through it, you have this knowledge for life. You'll have a new understanding of your body and why it behaves the way it does, and you'll be able to take better care of yourself with the power that understanding brings. And you'll be able to share your knowledge of natural fertility principles with your loved ones, pass it on to your daughters and nieces and students and granddaughters, and set them up to live their lives with the empowering understanding of their bodies and their health. What a way to move into the future.
It is my mission to make this information available to you, and to make it as clear, simple and useful as possible. I hope you'll join me on this journey, and I'd love to hear from you about the topics you most want to learn about!
