Welcome to Body & Weight Wednesday. I have a treat for you today. We have a special guest here to talk with us about what can be behind a woman’s inability to get pregnant or carry a baby to term.
Sarah Clark is an expert on infertility and a certified life and health coach. More importantly, Sarah has been in the trenches. When Sarah was 28 years old, she received a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure. She accepted the diagnosis and had both her children through in vitro fertilization. Years later she realized the root cause of her infertility was a food intolerance.
She is the author of Fabulously Fertile – Supercharge your Fertility Naturally and the Fabulously Fertile Cookbook. She has a full fertility coaching program, which includes functional lab testing and supports couples to make diet and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby!

Here are some of the questions I asked:
Can you tell us a little about your passion to help people with fertility issues?
Is there a most common issue at the root of infertility?
I read your article about how depression and anxiety can impact fertility. Can you talk more about that?
What else can you tell us about the mind-body connection?
My Ph.D. dissertation was in part on the prolactin lowering effects of Vitex. Are you familiar with that herb and do you think it has a role in the treatment of infertility?
I am now more focused on how subconscious beliefs create our reality. In my work, I identify the subconscious programs that are behind people’s problems and delete them. I haven’t worked with infertile women, but could imagine that beliefs like
- My child will be deformed
- I am not capable of taking care of a child
- I am a bad mother
- The world is not safe for children
…or others could manifest as infertility. What do you think?
