In this episode, Stephanie and Elana bring Dr. Lauren Noel, ND on the show to discuss natural ways to optimize your fertility after 30.

Dr. Noel shares insights from her upcoming course, Golden Eggs, a fertility longevity course for women and couples in their 30's and 40's. The information in this podcast and her course help prepare a woman's (and man's) body to be at its ideal fertile state so that when conception is desired, it happens with ease and in the healthiest way possible for the couple, and the baby.

We think you'll love the positivity and inspiration surrounding this topic and walk away feeling empowered.

Topics Discussed

  • How Dr. Noel helps couples optimize their fertility through the power of natural medicine
  • Lifestyle factors that can impair fertility
  • Her fertility food guide pyramid
  • Preparing for conception after having a kid(s)
  • Fertility myths
  • What Dr. Noel did to become more fertile in her mid/late 30's than she was in her early 20's
