We live in a society that expects women to feel and function the same way each and every day, however this does not take our biology into consideration. Fortunately, there are many natural ways to improve overall hormonal health and optimise fertility from the food you eat, to the environmental toxins you’re exposed to and the way you manage your stress, it’s all about nourishing yourself from the inside out.

Ema Taylor is Qualified Naturopath, Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Fertility Awareness Educator and the founder of OVIENE, a natural reproductive healthcare platform. Her job is to be part of the revolution that is currently happening in women’s health. In this inspiring feature Ema discusses how her passion as a fertility specialist evolved following her own health journey and shares the importance of supporting hormonal health and fertility with the wisdom of science and nature, assisting women to better understand their body and hormones.

A little bit about yourself

I’m Ema! A naturopath, clinical nutritionist, fertility awareness educator and most importantly, a mother to my little 3 year old girl, Zippora. I’m currently also about to give birth to our second little love, which we are so excited about.

I am the founder of OVIENE, an online reproductive healthcare platform that supports individuals and couples all around the world to take back control of their hormonal health and fertility through online programs and private consultations.

I live in the northern rivers of Australia with my husband and am happiest in the kitchen cooking for my family and friends or outside in nature, hiking, swimming or camping.

How your journey into wellness,reproductive healthcare and fertility awareness began

Like many stories, my own life experiences led me down this path. Years of experimenting with contraceptive methods without proper education in my late teens to early 20’s resulted in an array of emotional, reproductive and endocrine health implications that took years to rebalance. I lost my menstrual cycle for 3 years and was not given any practical guidance on how to regain it from western practitioners. It surprised and saddened me how little I knew about my own body’s intelligence and how capable it is of telling me what is happening at the deepest of levels if only I listened. Following these years of misunderstanding, I began to seek answers and came to realize just how much truth there is in the saying ‘knowledge is power’. This awareness led me to immerse myself in the wisdom of science and nature and embark on my journey in studying a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in naturopathic, nutritional and herbal medicine.

Following the completion of my degree I decided to deepen my knowledge in the fertility space and completed further education to become a certified fertility awareness educator. This additional knowledge has brought so much to my practice, helping women deeply understand their body and hormones.

The ripple effect of preconception care

Holistic preconception care not only increases the chances of conceiving but also of having a complication free, full term pregnancy, healthy birth, vital postpartum and lays the foundations for generational well-being. The ripple effect of preconception care really is remarkable, so much so that I created a free masterclass on the benefits. If you’re interested, you can watch it here.

To those who are dreaming of creating a family this year

I am so excited for you. Creating life is a true miracle. And I want you to know that there is so much in your power to make this your reality, more than you have probably been led to believe. Sadly the common societal approach for pregnancy planning is to take (a poorly absorbed form of) folate, have your immunisations status checked and to just ‘give it a go trying for 6 months’. This oversimplified approach is letting couples down. My work aims to empower you to know exactly what you can do to make your dream of creating a family this year, your reality. If you are seeking deeper support you can have a look at my preconception program, EXPAND, here.
