“Our goal is to be a place of healing”
“I remember knocking on the Calgary Regional Fertility Clinic’s (CRFC) door and saying ‘hi, our clinic can help your patients…’ and they said…’not yet’.
Today, I am thankful they did as that gave us further incentive to be better. Evolved versions of ourselves. Almost a decade later and not only have we grown in experience with the hundreds of fertility patients we have treated, but also in our understanding of them. We recently delivered a workshop with CRFC chatting with them about who we are, what we do, and how we can treat our mutual patients. We also thanked them for ‘pushing us’ to be better.”
Our Core Values
We believe in encompassing the following guiding lights; Trust, Kindness, Authenticity and Community.
Our goal is to help you to feel better and do everything possible to help you achieve your fertility, prenatal and healthy birthing goals. We will do our very best to help you feel physically stronger and more balanced emotionally with our care.
The Why of What We Do – Ann’s Story
“My a-ha moment came in the realization that I had to put some of my therapeutic ego aside and consider adding other therapies into her wellness mix…”
A few years ago, I remember treating a long time patient with Acupuncture and then suddenly having one of those “a-ha” moments. I really enjoyed this woman’s company as she was strong and intelligent and had forged her own niche in life.
We had spent many months together, sharing tears and angst throughout her journey and it would devastate me when she would tell me her pregnancy tests were negative. Both of our anxieties grew.
My a-ha moment came in the realization that I had to put some of my therapeutic ego aside and consider adding other therapies into her wellness mix. I knew she required nutrition counselling, relaxation/energy work and a structure to give her a stronger sense of control.
I began researching different therapies and talking with other people in the healing field. I referred her to a few trusted therapists and made some lifestyle suggestions. As beneficial as it was for her, it was frustrating for me because the timely communication I needed for my progress notes/monitoring, was challenging.
Hey, why don’t I open up a place where everyone is working under the same roof and the communication is centralized? The Holistic Institute of Health & Fertility was born! Since opening, we have naturally expanded our offerings to include prenatal care and in fact, we also specialize in helping Mama’s to be to have healthy pregnancies and then support them post-baby. Postnatal times Mamas tend to lose some of their supports and often feel very overwhelmed. We not only offer support but information to valuable resources that may help as well.
