#14 Exploring IVF and fertility with Dr Joo Teoh

In this episode, we explore IVF and fertility with Perth-based specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Joo Teoh.

Dr Joo is also a UK subspecialist in reproductive medicine and fertility and an absolute font of all knowledge on fertility and IVF. He is also an author of a number of books, journals, and recently a specialist health and cookbook entitled, What to Eat: A Specialist Guide to Fertility & Pregnancy, which he wrote with Kami last year.

Not only does Dr Joo have decades of professional international clinical and research experience, he also has his own personal fertility journey with his wife, Chee, which enriches his personalised, holistic approach to assisting his clients in their fertility journeys.

If you’re planning on pregnancy, currently on your fertility journey or preparing to embark on it, this episode is definitely one for you.

You’ll learn:

  • When it’s advisable to start seeking help with your fertility
  • What the major factors are for men and women which can cause difficulty in falling pregnant
  • Lifestyle factors which can play a major role in improving your fertility
  • The ins and outs of IVF and what to expect.

PLUS, some tips around how to choose the right clinic for you.

Christie Lee & Kami Ramini

Kami Ramini is a mum of 2, certified health coach (Integrative Nutrition IIN HC), food and health writer and founder of This Mum's Kitchen. Kami takes a bio-individual approach to her work with every client and centres her coaching on the premise of teaching women about "filling your cup". What this means will be different for everyone, but it's the grounding affirmation that by loving into our own mind, body, spirit wellbeing, we are intrinsically also doing better by everyone we love and everyone who relies on us. At whatever stage of your journey, whether you are preparing for pregnancy, already pregnant, already a mum or a busy woman for countless other reasons, remember that if our cups are full, then there is enough for us and enough for everyone else in our lives to take a sip too. Self-care isn't selfish, it's anything but.

Kami currently sees clients one-on-one and in groups and runs bi-monthly detox and reset programs through her Mind Body Lifestyle Wellness Club membership packages.

Christie Lee is a prenatal and gut health dietitian and founder of Christie Lee Nutrition. Christie originally became a dietitian as she's always been passionate about empowering people with the impact of food and diet on our health. With the current state of chronic diseases growing within our society, Christie's approach to health has become fuelled by a deep passion to help people find the root cause of health concerns and conquer life roadblocks to achieve ultimate health and happiness.

Specialising in fertility, pregnancy and gut health, Christie believes the secret to a better health outlook for our society is in educating mums and mums to be to eat well, be well and therefore give our next generation the very best chance to thrive.

Christie currently sees clients one-on-one and delivers workshops and presentations regularly online and around Perth.
