Course overview

The inability to conceive challenges a couple’s emotional and physical health. For the best possible chance of successful conception they will need a holistic approach which removes the boundaries between conventional and complementary care. An understanding of the anatomy and physiology of conception also gives a greater awareness of fertility problems and how best to improve them and is a useful addition for the trained therapist.
