Health and Fertility Matters specialises in Natural Fertility Management and Preconception Health Care. Our fertility naturopath is highly experienced in these areas and utilise their many years of clinical experience and research to assist you in optimising your chances of achieving a healthy conception, pregnancy and healthy, happy baby. You only need to look at the pin board in reception, covered with pictures of the most recent beautiful arrivals to get a sense of what you can achieve and the success of our preconception program.

Preconception Health Care is based on the premise that a ‘healthy baby is not a given’ and that the attainment of this precious prize requires a conscious effort and preparatory period of time. Your aim is to develop and mature the healthiest sperm and eggs so that at the time of conception you are laying the best foundation and setting in place the most desirable blueprint for your child’s health for the rest of their life. Medical research has now not only conclusively shown the beneficial effects of preconception care for the ongoing health of the baby but also the significant effect it can have for future generations.

By consciously preparing before conception, you can decrease the risk of passing on the predisposition to allergies, genetic, developmental and learning disorders, diabetes and obesity.

Vicki Turner (B.A.; N.D.; MATMS)

Director of Health and Fertility Matters

Vicki Turner has a quality about her that every health practitioner should surely have: a glow of good health and vitality. She not only treats her patients – she inspires them.

With more than 30 years of clinical naturopathic medicine practice, learning, researching and fine tuning her skills, Vicki treats a very wide range of health issues from digestive to immune system problems to skin and allergies, fatigue and exhaustion, to stress, sleep issues, anxiety and depression, and the specialty of reproductive health.

An important aspect of Vicki’s naturopathic assessment is the appropriate referral for medical testing to assist with diagnosis and subsequent treatment protocols.

“Responsible complementary medicine, working for the benefit of the patient, respects the knowledge and expertise of many health disciplines, including what we call allopathic medicine.”

Vicki also walks her talk:

“I was totally blessed to have my own son at 43 – a happy, healthy baby who is growing up to be a wonderful young man. We gave him the best start we possibly could in life, using all the knowledge my colleagues and I have to support his developing immune, digestive and nervous systems.”
