An Integrative Approach to Fertility with Sarah Clark

When Sarah Clark was 28 years old, she was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure. She accepted it and had both her children through in vitro fertilization.

She's a certified life coach with accreditation from the International Coaches Federation and a health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She's the author of Fabulously Fertile - Supercharge Your Fertility Naturally. Her fertility coaching program, which includes functional lab testing, supports couples to make diet and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby! On her Get Pregnant Naturally Podcast, she shares that with functional medicine and natural fertility solutions, we can eventually reverse infertility.
