Today I’m welcoming Justine Altman back to the podcast!

We’re digging into how sleep impacts fertility.

Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program – which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception.

If you are struggling with infertility…your body is desperately trying to tell you something…focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.

Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with POCS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.

It’s day #2 of our fertility series.

Be sure to check out yesterday’s episode on diet so that you know which diet is right for you.
 
We work with our clients for months on sleep.
 
It is the cornerstone of good health and crucial to optimize fertility.
 
If your sleep is poor this is a HUGE clue to dig deeper.
