Today we’re digging into 3 reasons why your IVF might have failed.

I have experienced a failed IVF. After I had my daughter, we waited one year and then did a frozen embryo transfer. I was determined to have my kids close together. Like really determined! Unfortunately it did not work. We had to go on a list for a separate donor and had our son, three years later.

I had no idea that there were specific steps I could take to improve my success with IVF and donor eggs.

Before you go through another round of IVF lets take a targeted functional approach to WHY it’s not working in the first place. You’ll learn my top three reasons why your IVF may have failed.


This episode is for you:

You have experienced a failed IVF treatment

You are planning another IVF treatment

You‘re not sure what to do to optimize your success


In this episode you’ll learn:

1) Missed physical and emotional stressors. These cause inflammation in the body and negatively impact hormones. We discuss specific steps to help with diet, environmental toxins, infections, and chronic stress so that you can reduce inflammation and prepare your body for a baby.

2) Missed healing opportunities. We discuss low vitamin D, thyroid dysfunction, long-term hormonal birth control use, blood sugar imbalance, chronic stress, over exercising, under fueling, obesity and trauma so that you can get to the bottom of why it’s not working.

3) Following generalized recommendations. These may have worked for someone else – but is it right for your body? Diets such as Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Whole30. Taking heaps of supplements that may be harmful for your fertility. Self-prescribing doesn’t work. You’ll figure out how to take a personalized targeted action plan that is right for “your" body so that you can improve your preconception health.
