What participants have said

Attending your course has changed my practice. I have helped many couples to conceive sometimes after many years of infertility by following the clear and simple steps you have outlined.

Fantastic and easy to implement information for all women I see wanting to get pregnant. Highly relevant to my field of clinical practice. I found this course very consolidating.

One of the greatest things about this course was the practicalities of the information and the examples to take into clinical practice immediately.

The evidence-based approach was thoroughly impressive.

Every aspect of this comprehensive course is presented clearly and concisely.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was extremely informative, interactive and a comfortable learning environment.

This course was exceptional. I learned new skills and enjoyed every moment of it.

The course and the assignment have helped me in almost every aspect of my work as a women’s health nurse working with newly arrived refugee women.

Kerry is a kind, respectful and compassionate teacher. This was the best courses I’ve ever done. Great to have such exposure to up-to-date research on how lifestyles and can impact fertility.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The content was excellent, detailed, and perfectly aimed for my needs.

So helpful. Loved the way the information was presented.

The assignment was terrific. It really helped me to consolidate my knowledge and confidence for implementing fertility consultations and charting in my practice.

Great course – has given me a lot of direction on how to structure fertility consultations.

I particularly loved learning about motivational interviewing so patients can take more responsibility for their decisions.
