Dedicated to your health…naturally

Hello, I’m Miranda and I love what I do! As a Naturopath and Acupuncturist, I am passionate and dedicated to the world of fertility, IVF support, gynaecology, women’s and men’s hormonal health, children’s health and emotional/mental health. I want you to be all you can be. The very best version of you.

Having gone through IVF with my own fertility issues, I get it. The disappointment of every period. The stress, anxiety, anger and fear. It seems everyone around you is suddenly pregnant. There are pregnant women everywhere. In your office, friend group and favourite cafe. Everyone is walking with a pram! Even the ones that never wanted kids! I had my own individual journey, and now I am a mum.

My private practice was established in 2002. I uniquely combine an integrated approach to health through multiple disciplines. As a business owner, director and entrepreneur, I developed one of Melbourne’s leading natural health and fertility treatment clinics for women, men and children.

I have also developed my own hand-blended, organic, therapeutic herbal tea range “Teasing” (Click here for more info)

I have developed extensive knowledge and expertise in:

Conceive Fertility; natural fertility and IVF support for both men and women

  • Natural fertility and successful conception
  • Optimal preconception health care for women & men
  • IVF preparation, support and improving IVF success rates
  • Alternative pregnancy methods such as donor egg and donor sperm support
  • The promotion of healthy pregnancies
  • Helping you prepare for labour

Fertility is not just making babies

Fertility is so much more than being able to conceive. It indicates productivity and wellness. In the same way happiness improves conception, being fertile increases our sense of wellbeing. I may help sort out:

  • Gynaecological complaints including menstrual irregularities, PMT, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts & PCOS, adenomyosis, ovulation problems
  • Andropause, erectile dysfunction, prostate problems
  • Your questions regarding the pill and alternative contraception methods

Happy hormones – Stress, anxiety, thyroid and menopause

If you feel you are stuck in the hormonal hell of menopause, we need to get you out! Let’s balance your hormones and balance your life. Sex, thyroid and stress hormones are all intimately connected and often go haywire at the same time, especially around peri- and meno-pause!

Anxiety and stress affect not only fertility outcomes, but also make menopause worse. Let’s de-stress and get rid of your anxieties around your fertility, or life generally.

Let’s treat your thyroid conditions, including hyper- or hypothyroidism, thyroiditis, auto-immune thyroid (Hashimoto’s and Graves).

Nurturing and nourishment for you and your family – The promotion and development of children’s health.
