This course was extremely well delivered and informative - it has filled the knowledge gap that I had around IVF and how to support my patients on their fertility journey. The integration between the medical side of IVF and the naturopathic support has deepened my understanding of the patient experience and the role I play as their Naturopathic Doctor. The resources provided in this course are great to have on hand and I have already referred back to them a few times. Thank you Dr. Stew, Dr. Courtney & Dr. Elizabeth!
