Senior Fertility Naturopath
Georgia is a naturopath of 19 years’ experience with a Degree in Complementary Medicine and a Masters in Nutrition. Along with extensive clinical experience in reproductive health and fertility, Georgia is also an experienced writer and well regarded speaker.
Initially embarking on reproductive health as a clinical speciality following her own personal experience with sub-fertility and pregnancy complications, she has a strong curiosity and passion for supporting people who are experiencing reproductive challenges. Georgia specialises in supporting individuals and couples during their journey through preconception, conception, pregnancy and postpartum life stages.
Areas of focus include menstrual cycle irregularities, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) , pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and histamine issues as well as male fertility and sperm health issues.
With 2 children of her own in their primary school years, Georgia can help to expertly guide you through the early years of family health issues, and enjoys treating babies and children with recurrent infections, failure to thrive, digestive issues at all ages and any challenges that you need support with for your baby or child’s best health.
Georgia also enjoys treating women and individuals during the transition to menopause including peri-menopausal imbalances.
Her clinical approach involves supporting and guiding you to optimise your health physically, mentally and emotionally using an approach blending traditional and scientific knowledge. This is based on an integration of her many years of clinical experience with ongoing education to stay up to date with new research and treatment strategies. Along with gaining her Masters Degree, this includes post graduate mentoring and training with Rachel Arthur, Rhiannon Hardingham, Leah Hechtman, Dr Andrew Orr and The Fertility Mentoring Program (The Baby Maker Network) among others.
Georgia believes that a team approach gets the best outcomes for all. She works in close collaboration with her patients’ medical care team to ensure the most effective, appropriate evidence-based treatment plans for each individual.
Georgia is available by Telehealth appointments only. Please note all appointments are in Melbourne time (AEST or AEDT).
What inspired you to pursue a career as a fertility focused naturopath?
A combination of my personal experience with fertility difficulties, pregnancy and birth complications with the ups and downs of motherhood, along with a strong scientific and clinical interest in wanting to understand about all of these areas drove me to specialise in fertility and reproductive health.
What do you love about being a fertility naturopath?
That desire to become a parent when you are having difficulties conceiving can be so incredibly difficult, as can living with a reproductive condition or postpartum or menopausal-associated imbalances that are affecting your reproductive and/or general health and daily quality of life. In all of these situations, you can feel like you are at the mercy of your body. For me, being able to help those experiencing such issues so they can improve their chances of becoming a parent or their general and reproductive health is such a privilege and I feel very fortunate to play a role in someone’s health care team to help make a difference for them in a meaningful way.
How many years of experience do you have as a fertility naturopath?
I have been a naturopath for 19 years with the last 10 being in the area of fertility and reproductive health and fertility.
What types of conditions do you frequently see good results with in your patient group?
I approach every case with a balance of the clinical experience I’ve had addressing that condition combined with a fresh perspective and spirit of curiosity to investigate and understand how the specific condition has developed and is presenting in the individual case. With this approach I find I get good results with most conditions I see where the patient and I work as a team.
Within your special interest for treating people during (IVF/pregnancy etc) are there particular conditions you love to treat or have had good results with?
I’ve treated women from each end of the reproductive spectrum (teenagers and young women with menstrual irregularities, individuals and couples trying to conceive naturally or those experiencing difficulties that require adjunctive medical intervention, women during pregnancy and their postpartum years and beyond that those going through perimenopause). I love treating all of these areas as I enjoy the variety, from both a clinical perspective, and also being able to make a difference for women at each of these life phases.
How do you stay up to date in your field of fertility naturopathy?
I’m a big nerd and am a strong believer that no matter how much knowledge you have, there is always something to learn that can benefit patients. As such, I am endlessly curious and am always digging into research, attending relevant masterclasses and seminars on the whole range reproductive of conditions I treat. I also regularly attend advanced mentoring groups to learn and draw on the collective wisdom of others practising in the same field.
What are the top 3 things you recommend to anyone trying to conceive / who is pregnant / who has had a baby?
What are some of your favourite fertility / IVF / pregnancy / postpartum resources that you share with you patients?
I share the Create a Fertile Life book, written by top fertility practitioners in the Fertile Ground lineage, with all fertility patients and recommend it to anyone looking to start their journey – it has great practical information that you can start to work with immediately.
Plus, many of the free e-books on our shared Fertile Ground Learning Centre have a great array of implementable information to help get you started.
You can download them for free:
I also regularly share many different types of meal plans or meal/snack/smoothie ideas.
What things do you do (almost) everyday for your own good health?
If you speak any languages other than English please share what they are here.
I did learn Japanese at school but it was short-lived. I have huge admiration for bilingual people!
Can I see you in person or via Telehealth?
I am based in sunny Brisbane, so I consult via Telehealth.
