Expectant Couple

If only falling pregnant was like the birds and the bees

Even if you can't remember year nine biology, you know how getting pregnant works in theory - but things don't always happen like they do in the movies! 

 

Maybe you're at the beginning of trying to conceive, and you need some extra guidance and troubleshooting to understand the processes... or perhaps you're already 3 IVF cycles in and wondering where to turn next...

 

Perhaps you're keen to try some more natural methods first, but you're unsure which ones will be most effective for you. Reflexology? Naturopathy? Acupuncture?

Or, you might be considering seeking help from a fertility specialist. A referral to a fertility specialist at an IVF clinic doesn't always mean you'll start IVF right away. And with almost 60 fertility specialists in Melbourne alone, how will you choose?

 

As an experienced clinical embryologist (IVF scientist), I've assessed over 100,000 embryos, I've helped to create thousands of families and I've been supporting women and couples on their fertility journeys for 20 years.

I know I can help you too

DID YOU KNOW… Less than 50% of women referred to a fertility specialist end up having IVF

Are you in any of these situations?

We're just starting out:

Everything they didn't teach you about pregnancy and fertility at school​.

We think we might need IVF:

Before you spend thousands on IVF - make sure you're giving it the BEST chance of working by being FULLY prepared before you start.

We've had some IVF cycles with no luck:

Had fertility treatments without a result? Let's see what's working, what's not, and what to do next.

We're about to start a cycle and we're not sure how we're going to cope:

It's okay to need additional support during a fertility treatment cycle.

"We were feeling very lost and confused about our fertility concerns prior to meeting with Lucy. Since our first interaction, we felt like we were in good hands with an incredible resource to help us through the process and consider our options. 

 

We are so grateful for Lucy's time, advice and wonderful approach and would highly recommend Lucy to anyone feeling lost in their fertility journey." – Name withheld.

DID YOU KNOW… The average fertile 30-year old woman has only a 20-25% chance of conceiving naturally in any given cycle? It's amazing that anyone ever gets pregnant! 

What's included?

 

Let's discuss all things timing-related: - cycles, periods, exercise, health, and (dare say it?!) *relaxation* and stress relief. Believe it or not, all of these contribute to your ability to conceive.

​We'll also talk about the raw ingredients needed for baking a baby - sperm, eggs, uterus, etc. Plus, how to make sure you have the right ingredients ready at the right time.

We'll talk about A.R.T - what is it? Depending on where you're up to, we can even talk about all your cycles so far.  How many eggs were collected, what was the sperm like? fertilisation? embryo development? blastulation? did they do PGS? What did it all mean?? (its ok if you don't have your medical records yet, we can talk about your recollection and jot some questions down for next time)

 

You might have asked yourself questions like: 

 

Am I doing everything I could be doing?

Have we missed anything that might help us to conceive? 

Should we consider fertility treatment? 

or: Is it even worth continuing fertility treatment? 

​​

How does it work?

 

You can book a one off appointment - one hour with me in the hotseat - any questions, any ponderings, literally anything at all about fertility - I'm here to give you whatever information I can in an hour

 

or, you can put it all together in a bundle - 1 month, 3 months or 6 months (just click the I NEED HELP button above)

(if you go with a one-off first, I can credit the cost of that appointment towards any of the bundles, and if you get pregnant during the time we're working together - your payments stop straight away! - unless of course you want that extra support during early pregnancy)

All the things you do, every day, have the potential to impact the health of your eggs and sperm...  and anything that impacts the health of your eggs and sperm, impacts the health of your embryos, your chances of conceiving (naturally AND with IVF) and the health of your baby at the end of it all​ (want to read more about preconception health head here)

​Whichever bundle you choose, we will:

  • go in-depth into the things you can do to make sure that the raw ingredients for a baby (those eggs and sperm) are the best quality they can possibly be

  • Make sure you are in the most tip-top shape you can be - mentally and physically, before you start

  • Make sure you feel empowered, educated and informed if you are heading into a treatment cycle

 

Step One: Book your first chat (60 minutes) - 'where are we at?'

We'll start with a face-to-face consultation (via Zoom these days) to establish your 'story', your current situation and what you've done so far. 

I'll send you

 

Step Two: Book another chat (60 minutes again) 'what more can we do?'

We'll meet again and go through all the information you have gathered since we met last, including:

 

  • Walking step by step through any questions that came up when you were watching the videos and identifying the things that will help

  • Finding problems you can solve without specialist support - things to do more of and less of

  • Discussing if there is someone else you should see: a different GP or Fertility Specialist? Naturopath? Chinese Medicine Doctor? Nutritionist?

 

Step Three: Another 60 minute 'follow up' chat  

It's time to explore how everything is going.

 

I can help you consider who or where to turn to next. 

  • If you think you might want to change specialists - how to choose

  • If you're about to have an egg collection and not sure what to expect

  • If you've just got some information from the lab you don't quite understand

  • Which fertility specialist might be best suited to you, what kinds of questions you should ask when you're looking for your perfect fit

  • How long you should continue trying before seeking extra help - with a Fertility Specialist/Consultant/ Reproductive Endocrinologist

 

Step Four (in the 3 month and the 6 month bundles): Book as many more chats as want, as when you need them!

During all of this time, we can stay in touch via texts, messages, emails, or phone - whatever support you need. 

 

Worried, stressed, or confused about your fertility treatment?

 

 

Day 1. Day 3. Day 5. Mature eggs. Fertilisation results. Syngamy. PGS. PGT. Amplifying cells. Two cells. Four cells. Eight cells. Compacting. Cavitating. Blastulation. Collapsed. Hatching. Freeze-all. OHSS…

 

It’s little wonder people need additional support.

 

As a qualified embryologist with some 20 years working in and for fertility clinics worldwide – not to mention fertility struggles of my own – I understand the emotional rollercoaster that is fertility treatment. 

 

And I’m here to support you.

 

 

all of my support is customised, designed to support you, wherever you are up to

 

Want me to come with you to your fertility specialist appointment? I’ll be there.

Need to debrief over a coffee after your appointments? I’ll order ahead.

Forgot what time to take your trigger? Just ask me.

Want to phone me from the car on the way home? I’m all ears.

Received a call from the lab but unsure what they meant? I’ll decode the doctor-speak.

Stuck in the dreaded two-week wait? I’m here for you.

Two Lines Fertility Support means less stress, less confusion, and no more Dr. Google!

“I met Lucy through family at a very sensitive and emotional time in our lives. We had some difficulties getting pregnant, and at that stage we were seeing a specialist who was not helping us with our infertility issues… Lucy got us in touch with the right specialist which turned our whole situation around.

 

We went from being in the depths of despair to feeling hopeful, and eventually the greatest joy in the world (twins).

 

Within this period I had weekly chats with Lucy to help understand and interpret what was going on. Lucy's expert, honest, pragmatic, sensitive and often witty approach to this delicate situation helped us enormously. I will forever remember the role Lucy played in helping us to have the family we wished for.” - Simon W
