Vancouver’s leaders in natural fertility. We help you become pregnant!

We’ve been through many ups and downs – miscarriage, IVF & two rounds of egg freezing & then, after five months of trying naturally, with the help from Thuja Wellness, we got our good news. My goal was to clear my body of all the past trauma & then move onto focusing on prepping my body for a baby. I’m happy to report that after 3.5 + years of trying, we are on our way to having a healthy baby! Thank you so so so much!

How We Help You

We work with you to create a treatment plan that is specific to your individual health & fertility needs. Every couple is unique & our treatment plans reflect that.

Step 1. Prevention.

Don’t Wait For One Whole Year To Discover You Have Fertility Issues!

Did you know stress is the number one cause of Unexplained Infertility? This type of infertility will only be diagnosed one year after trying to conceive without success. Waiting one year without results is extremely stressful for many women, exacerbating the issue.

Other reasons for Unexplained Infertility:

  • hormone imbalances
  • immunity issues
  • pelvic misalignment
  • physical & emotional trauma
  • scar tissue
  • anxiety & depression
