I have always been interested in the area of Women’s health. And my interest heightened around the time my husband and I decided to try to conceive. I found it very difficult trying to navigate my way through ALL the information, and I genuinely struggled trying to understand it all. I hated it when people told me to RELAX!!! It did take time to conceive, and during my trying to conceive days, I always vowed that if I fell pregnant, I would work in the area of women’s health, and try and pass on my knowledge to other couples embarking on their fertility journey. And that was the beginning of Positive Health. So, if you are trying to conceive, or you are undergoing fertility treatment, have experienced a loss, and you are looking for guidance and support, please feel free to get in touch.

I had been trying to conceive for almost 3 years before I met Julie. At that stage I had been under a consultant in a fertility clinic and I was completely lost when it came to what steps to take next. Within weeks Julie had outlined all the steps I needed to take and which steps weren’t necessary for my specific case. Her knowledge in fertility alone made me so much more relaxed and calm knowing I had somebody to guide me through this difficult time. Along with her treatments and wisdom we are now successfully pregnant and almost due our long and much anticipated baby. It has been a long road for us to get here but we could not be more grateful and without her guidance we would not be where we are today.
