NATALIE KRINGOUDIS TALKS WOMENS HEALTH AND FERTILITY

December 4, 2018

Nat has accepted the task of inspiring wellness, not only to those embarking on becoming parents, but equally important to her, educating young women of how their choices shape their reproductive health.  She believes this is the key to addressing the hormone imbalance and infertility epidemic.  For Nat, fertility isn’t just about babies, it’s about outstanding health.  Her knowledge in fertility and natural medicine has regularly featured in her column in Australian Natural Health magazine, in major publications, including Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan as well as regular TV appearances as a wellness expert.  She loves nothing more than to educate and talk about women’s health in a way that is simple and relatable.
