Join Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Shannon Vander Doelen as she discusses the ways in which you can optimize your fertility health and prepare your body for baby. Whether your pregnancy plans are two days or two years from now, you can begin to understand and put preconception health care practices into place to help with fertility for when the time is right.
Understand the many things you can do now to prepare your body - from changing your diet and starting supplements, to reviewing what’s in your medicine cabinet and reducing your exposure to everyday toxins.
Learn about your hormones, how to monitor your cycle, and how stressors on your mind and body can impact both of these important elements in your fertility.
Walk away with a better understanding of preconception wellness and a nutrition guide towards optimizing your health that you can implement immediately regardless of where you are in your fertility journey.
In this course you will learn:
How to navigate your menstrual cycle to better understand best times for conception
Natural ways to alleviate stress
Vitamins and nutrition for fertility health
Information on additional wellness practices that aid in fertility
How to assess your pre-existing fertility hormone health
Dr. Shannon Vander Doelen Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncture Provider
My mission as a Naturopathic Doctor is to make healthy living and feeling well simple, realistic and sustainable. My goal is to ensure that my patients feel supported and empowered to make simple changes in their lives that support their overall health despite leading busy and active lives. Clinically, my focus is in women's health and fertility. I help women to restore balance in their hormonal systems, improve their fertility, get pregnant (if that's what they want right now!), and overall feel awesome. I also have a special interest in natural approaches to anxiety and post-concussion syndrome.
My Education & Credentials I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, where I earned my post-graduate degree in Naturopathic Medicine. I completed internships at both the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto and the Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic, located in the Brampton Civic Hospital (the first naturopathic clinic within a hospital in Canada!) Prior to this, I spent four great years at the University of Guelph where I earned my Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences. I am licensed with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO). I am a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).
Things I Love My supportive husband, my incredible family, the team of really cool people I work with, a warm home-cooked meal, travelling, Canada, squash (the sport and the vegetable), dancing, local red wine in moderation, and a perfectly brewed cup of french press coffee (sometimes with a bit of coconut oil & grass-fed butter, #brainfood).
