Practitioner Masterclass – Beyond the Basics: IVF Support for Complex Cases


If you are a practicing naturopath and would like to brush up on your skills or deepen your knowledge, you are invited to join Fertile Ground Health Group naturopath Rhiannon Hardingham in an exclusive masterclass for fertility naturopaths, as she shares her knowledge in a 4 session education series on IVF support for complex cases.

For more than 18 years, Fertile Ground Health Group practitioners have amassed vast IVF experience and developed deep collaborative relationships with IVF specialists in Melbourne.  They have seen the most complex of cases and experienced the difference that a comprehensive and well researched approach can have on a patient’s fertility and pregnancy success.

Rhiannon Hardingham has been at the core of the senior naturopathic team at Fertile Ground Health Group for the past 9 years.  Her success with patient outcomes is testament to her diligence and keen sense of curiosity to find the answers for her patients, even in the most complex and seemingly hopeless of cases, earning her the respect of many IVF specialists in Melbourne.
