Bringing Balance to Body and Mind

A key ethos at our women’s health clinic is to listen to our patients, so we get to know you and can work together on improving your health outcomes.

Here at The Fertile Project, we focus on a personalised treatment plan to address the root causes of your health concerns rather than only treating the symptoms.

Our Melbourne women’s health clinic can help with a range of issues such as fertility issues, hormonal imbalance, pain, pelvic health problems, general aches and pains, and gastrointestinal, thyroid and immune support.

A Health Clinic with a Point of Difference

As a leading women’s health clinic in Melbourne, The Fertile Project has some of the most experienced practitioners in holistic medicine who are widely respected as thought leaders in our fields of expertise.

The co-founders and directors of The Fertile Project, Miranda Myles and Dr Kathryn Johns, each bring over 20 years of experience in servicing more than 20,000 patients.

Our women’s health clinic has the experience to support you at any point in the life cycle – including paediatrics, puberty, fertility, pregnancy, birth, postnatal care and menopause.

Services in Holistic Healthcare and Fertility

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment that uses the body’s own recuperative processes to restore balance, wellbeing and vitality.

Using very fine, single-use stainless steel pins that are left in for 20-45 minutes, acupuncture can reduce the levels of stress hormones as well as stimulate and energise the body. It can be used for the management of most symptoms.

The Fertile Project administers acupuncture for fertility, menstruation, preconception, pregnancy and post-natal care. This includes balancing hormones, regulating the menstrual cycle, strengthening ovulation, increasing blood flow to the uterus, and improving implantation success.

Acupuncture from a women's health clinic can help prepare your body for a baby, no matter what style of conception you have chosen – such as natural, medicated, IVF or donor egg IVF conception.

Naturopathy

By leveraging the body's innate ability to heal and regenerate, naturopathy supports the body to find its own homeostasis and regain balance.

Naturopathic medicine takes a holistic and preventative approach to medicine. It encompasses a range of therapies such as herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, homeopathy, and dietary and lifestyle changes.

As a women's health clinic, The Fertile Project will work with you to diagnose the underlying root cause of a hormonal or gynaecological imbalance, and create a personalised treatment plan to bring your body back into optimal health across its digestive, immune and nervous systems.

This can include balancing your hormones, regulating the menstrual cycle for painless and regular menstruation, improving the metabolism of oestrogen and progesterone, and encouraging ovulation.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy uses various hands-on techniques to gently release physical strain, pain and discomfort, leading to improved mobility and health.

The Fertile Project diagnoses and treats physical restriction within muscles and fascia and the associated ligaments, tendons and joints, as well as how the organs are suspended by fascial attachments within the musculoskeletal system.

We are expertly trained in using osteopathy for various areas of healthcare, such as pelvic health, bladder, bowel and gastrointestinal health, visceral osteopathy, pre and postnatal care, and paediatrics.

Our women's health clinic has one of only a few osteopaths trained in physiotherapy assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor and preparation of the pregnant person for birth.

Nutritional Medicine

Nutritional medicine is about eating for nourishment and abundance – for a healthy body and a healthy gut microbiome.

Food is a medicine – which is why we focus on what TO eat, rather than what NOT to eat. More than just a change in diet, we focus on the entire process of digestion, absorption, metabolism and excretion to make sure your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.

The Fertile Project is deeply experienced in using nutrition for issues of women's health and gynaecology, thyroid health, digestive health, pelvic health, pain management and more.

Our women's health clinic can help address irregular and painful menses, preconception, pregnancy, postnatal care, hypo- and hyperthyroidism, food intolerances, bloating, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Functional Medical Testing

Unlike a standard blood test from a GP, functional medical tests take a more holistic approach.

Functional medical tests at a women's health clinic can aid in the diagnosis, management and treatment plan for a holistic health practitioner. They can help determine a patient's baseline health and monitor the progress of a treatment plan.

Patients seeking a holistic approach to health should bring in any blood tests that have been conducted. With this, The Fertile Project can investigate your functional, biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal status.

Our women's health clinic offers a comprehensive analysis of hormonal balance, including sex, stress and thyroid hormones. We also offer food sensitivity tests, analyses of the microbiome and gastrointestinal function, and genetic tests.
