My Fertility Story
Throughout my early 20's, I had a series of serious female problems that resulted in multiple surgeries and a whole host of out-patient procedures. My feet were in the stirrups at the OB-GYNs (when I wasn't in the hospital that is) more often than on the floor for six years or so. The doctors told me that my chances of a successful pregnancy were slim because the walls of the uterus were so badly scarred, as were my fallopian tubes, from endometrosis and having had a ruptured cyst that infected my womb. And then even more procedures. By the time I ended my 20's, I had had 3 surgeries, been hospitalized for severe pelvic infection for over two weeks on drip antibiotics, had endometrosis burned out twice, had cold cones, and five D&Cs. My 20's came and went, and then at 31 I met the man that was destined to father my two children.
I was determined to conceive. I studied everything I could get my hands on related to natural methods for boosting fertility and conception, as well as changing my diet and adding the appropriate herbals. It took almost a year, but at the end of that year I conceived. My daughter was born when I was 33. At 34, it was time for round two. At 36, my son was born.
I firmly believe that it was not only my faith in myself that gave me the gift of my children, it was also my approach. Since then, I have studied even more and have an extensive background and education in diet and herbals that boost fertility, and in stress management, yoga, meditation, and coaching. While no natural method, or even modern technology for that matter, can guarantee a successful pregnancy, a natural approach certainly boosts the opportunity for great results by creating a more fertile ground for it mentally, physically and emotionally.

INTEGRATIVE Fertility Coaching
Dr. Lola Scarborough
Conception is the convergence of many elements, the first and foremost of which is the physical, mental, and emotional health of the prospective parents. It is critical to successful conception, a strong pregnancy, and a successful delivery.
We'd love to support you in your journey. These sessions are a natural approach to boosting conception. Using diet, herbs, vitamins, exercises, and relaxation techniques, as well as guidance about age-old fertility techniques, you and your partner become better informed and healthier in every way. Fertility coaching can be sucessfully combined with medical approaches to conception as well.
Coaching sesssions can assist in the process in many different ways. Some of these include:
Lessening the negative impact that fertility issues have on you and your life by providing guidance, support, and a nuturing environment
Enhancing your and your partner's natural fertility
- Helping you and your partner optimize your physical, mental, and emotional health
- Providing your future baby with the best possible start
A natural approach usually mandates at least some lifestyle changes and you can expect to work with me for anywhere from 3-9 months as we implement new ways of living and being. Because diet and emotions both have a direct impact on fertility, the emphasis is on proper nutrition and managing stress and fearful emotions as essential elements for success. Lifestyle changes can have a profound impact on fertility by:
Improving egg quality
Reducing miscarriage risk
Improving sperm mobility
Reducing PCOS symptoms

Let's Get Started
A healthy conception is rarely an overnight process. As with any natural approach to health, you must expect 6-9 months for changes in your/your partner's health, and hence fertility, to take place. I work with you and your partner to help you manage any anxiety or concerns that come up as we go through the process. Here's what we recommend:
- Schedule a one-time session with me, Dr. Lola, and let's chat. We will discuss and review what your needs and goals are during the interview. We'll discuss a rough overview of the strategies that might be employed to help you meet those goals.
- If after your interview you feel ready to take on a natural approach to conception, get ready to learn some new processes and ideas that may assist you in achieving the desired outcome.
