As a Natural Fertility Specialist in Sydney, Belinda is experienced in treating all female and male reproductive health problems.
Some couples have difficulty with conception and/or they conceive and experience miscarriage. Many are then told they have ‘unexplained infertility’ where this is often a case of ‘sub-fertility’.
