Frequently Asked Questions
YOU MUST READ BEFORE WE TALK PLEASE!
Please watch the video below and read the FAQ before requesting a complimentary fertility strategy session
This video and FAQ will be SO helpful and will save you tons of time.
By watching this video and reading about the program before we talk, you will have a very good idea about what my program and I are all about and if you will want us in your fertility journey or not before taking the time to talk to me.
If so, let’s go! If no, still love you bro (but the female version of bro…whatever that is).
Ok, so that video explains what I do. Of course I need to take a customized very approach to everyone, but that is a good overview.
Next, I want to go over some additional frequently asked questions.
You talk a lot about the importance of the right fertility clinic and doctor. What if I don’t want to change my doctor/clinic?
Choosing the right clinic is a part of the Science pillar within the program. Many women come to me with their clinic set. If after evaluation of the clinic, it is clear that this clinic is not the right clinic to get you pregnant quickly or ever, I will make recommendations for clinics that will. Whether you choose to change clinics or not, is up to you.
Some cannot change clinics because they have bought a bundle (please don’t ever do that before talking to me…I have seen too many women stuck at a clinic that is not providing any results and they cannot leave all of that money behind). Those clients still choose to work with my team and me because with a weak clinic, the expert guidance allows us to make the best choices with what we have available.
But, overall, if your first reaction to changing a clinic is that you will not do it, this program will not be a good fit for you. Wanting to pay for guidance and not take it is going to be a huge waste of your money. And this will not be the first change that I will be asking you to make. So, if you know that you want to do things a certain way, please do not waste your time and money on our guidance.
I want to work with women that will do anything that I recommend. And yes, I will always provide the science to prove why I am asking you to do it. Even if it seems annoying. Even if it seems unnecessary. Even if the recommendation is to stick something up your butt while singing “Hallelujah.” ;) If I am asking you to do it, it is just because it works.
Why should I believe you over my fertility clinic for the best strategies to be successful getting pregnant?
It is not about believing me over your fertility clinic; it is about working with me AND your fertility clinic.
I can’t, and don’t want to do what your fertility clinic does, and they can’t, and don’t know how to do what I do, but you need both to be successful. Yes, I had to bold that one :)
If a successful fertility journey were just dependent on the fertility clinic you choose, then the fertility clinics would have close to a 100% success rate. But they don’t. They have an average of a 35% success rate* because the Science is just one elements that you need to be successful.
When you have all necessary elements working together- Science, Environment, Mindset, Support, your success rates get close to the 100%! And mine are! I have successfully shown 100% of my clients, who have completed the program, how to get pregnant (and stay pregnant). Yes, even those that were told they couldn’t do IVF due to their low egg reserve.
When you have guidance on the best practices in all four of those pillars, you will see much faster success.
What if I'm the first person your program doesn't work for?
Everyone has this question for me. But, if you are the first person that does my program and does not get pregnant, you will get a refund. And if your case is so difficult that you think you will be the first to not succeed at IVF with me, then even more reason to work with me. Working with me ensures that you are doing everything right to try and get pregnant. And as you can imagine, 90% of my cases are the “difficult” ones. Unfortunately, those just starting IVF are typically like I was- cocky that OF COURSE it is going to work. But, working with me before starting your journey is the most energy and cost efficient way to do it. It is so much easier to do things right from the start than to try and go back and fix something that was created incorrectly.
Explain your guarantee. It seems too good to be true. What's the catch?
It's not too good to be true, it is how the industry should work. Why are people making more money the longer you’re NOT pregnant? Couldn’t that structure incentive the people you hire to not get you pregnant so quickly?
You trust, you pay, you put in a lot of time, energy and mental health. When it fails, you are without all of those resources (full risk). The other party has gained resources (no risk).
This is way too one-sided.
So, I don't get paid more the longer that you work with me. If fact, the faster we work and get you pregnant, the more clients that I can accept.
And if my program doesn’t work, and you no longer want to get pregnant, I want you to use that money on something that will work for you…hopefully that thing also provides a risk-free guarantee.
I am willing to invest my time, money, and energy into you (with risk) if you are willing to invest it into me (with no risk).
BUT, it must be my work. I recently had to add some language to the client agreement because of some situations that I experienced.
Here is the language in the client agreement. This way, there are no surprises.
The terms for the guarantee are as follows. If Client has followed the entire program, provided reasonable evidence of doing so, took Coach recommendations for Science, Environment, Mindset, and Support, worked with the Coach for at least two egg retrievals and two embryo transfers, and the client did not get pregnant, and is no longer trying to get pregnant, Client will receive a full refund.
I hope that this help! Please schedule a call with me to discuss if you have further questions.
Are your success rates so high because you push everyone to consider egg donor or embryo donor?
No. Though I do work with women using 3rd party assistance, I have never recommended it for my client. I have actually convinced many clients not to use an egg donor and to try again, my way, with her own eggs.
Most women work with me because they are already using donor eggs and it is still not working. Or, they want to do everything possible correctly before moving onto donor eggs. And they want support through that process as well…especially mindset.
Is your program for women trying to conceive naturally or doing Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?
This program is for those who are doing fertility treatments or being told that they need fertility treatments and want to make sure they are doing everything correctly themselves so that they don’t need treatments.
Are you a doctor or nurse?
No, I am a coach. My formal education is in biology and chemistry. Once I launched the FU Project, I took a deep dive into the fertility industry to learn who was doing it right and what could delay success. I studied the science, the environmental factors, the endocrine system, how nutrition could affect fertility, and I know for certain what women need to propel their journey forward. I am an expert in the field, an insider at some of the top fertility clinics, but also a peer- I know what it feels like to be you right now. I have been through every appointment, every shot, and every "WTF just happened" disappointment.
All of the experts on the team (nutritionist, wellness, mindset, prenatal care) are certified in their specific field and we also have former and current medical professionals in some of the support coaching roles.
I am about to start IVF in a couple of weeks. Can I still start and work with you or will I have to delay it?
I like to have at least four weeks before the next procedure (egg retrieval or embryo transfer).
How long is your program?
The program starts the day we agree that you will be a good fit and ends when you are holding your baby. I recently added another nine months to my program so that I can support you throughout your pregnancy too and give you the best practices for pregnancy and newborn care.
So what exactly does your program include?
Unlimited support from fertility coach, mindset coach, support coach, life coach, nutritionist, and access to a spiritual adviser. All access is in the forms of one-on-one coaching calls, emails, group calls, and text.
Online video library of the best practices in Science, Environment, Mindset, and Support. This is where you get the foundation for the education, exercises, and strategies in those categories.
Three group calls a week. Typically I do one, and the mindset coaches to the other two. On these video calls (only the host has her video on) we cover a quick inspirational or educational lesson and then do into Q&A. These calls are also recorded for those that cannot make it, and everyone has access to the group call log. These calls quickly becomes my clients’ new favorite “podcast".
Online inspiration forum on a separate app (not on Facebook) where the women share their wins, lessons, support, meets-ups that they create, and love. All of the coaches are also in that group sharing wins, lessons learned from the week, best practices, event details, inspiring content, and more.
Events and meet-ups multiple times a year where I get to spoil you.
Overall, the program provides unlimited access to all of the coach and experts and so much more. How the program looks will depend on your specific needs and personality. Everyone’s journey is unique and treated accordingly.
That sounds like a lot of time and I don’t have time.
It is not a lot of time. We need to do some one-on-one calls once is a while, but the rest is on your time. For the first 8-ish weeks, I ask my clients to try and dedicate 2 hours per week (or 4x :30 minute sessions) to watching and implementing the powerful lessons from my online video library).
But, to be honest, my first reaction to hearing that someone knows that she does not have time for a program that will show her how to get pregnant easily and quickly, and with the best guidance and support, is that this program will not be a good fit for you.
And if you don’t think you have time to dedicate 2 hours per week, I would challenge you to work with one of our life coaches on how to create more space in your life, body, and mind. Without this space, there is no room for a baby.
How much does the program cost?
The investment in the program is a one-time fee no matter how long you are in it. It is a mid-four-figure investment that I will share if we determine that we will be a good fit for each other. This investment can be broken up into a few payments (we typically allow up to 3 payments) without any additional fees.
I didn’t think the cost would be so much. Why is it so much?
First, you don't know how much it is yet :)
Second, for those who do understand the program details, the guarantee, and that you will have this expert guidance for a minimum of 12 months but most likely 15 months (assuming 3 months to get you pregnant and then 9 months of pregnancy), they quickly realized that the ROI (return on investment) is tremendous.
Here is some quick math. Doing 2 Rounds of IVF + my program will increase your chances for success by +112%*. And then there are my strategies for saving tens of thousands of dollars on the costs of IVF, and also the value of preserving your time, energy, and mental health on your journey.
Another math game is to add up 12 months (conservatively) of one-on-one coaching in fertility, health, wellness, nutrition, pre-natal care, newborn care, fulfillment and happiness, and therapy (but better because we tell you what to do). It will be well over five-figures….or 6-figures if you live in NYC :) A mid-four-figure investment for all of that one-on-one support, with a guarantee of the result, is a risk-free bargain. That is a fact and not an opinion :)
Your fertility journey, when NOT executed correctly, will be VERY VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. Not just financially, but mentally and emotionally. I have dozens and dozens of stories to share about how expensive it is to do IVF incorrectly. It breaks my heart hearing them every day.
How do you save me money on my treatments?
Aside from knowing all the tricks to getting discounts when you do or don’t have insurance, I dramatically cut the time it takes for you to get pregnant and therefore reduce all of the financial, physical, and emotional costs of your fertility journey.
In my current group alone I have a woman who did four rounds of IVF ($100K+) with nothing to show before joining my program. She is on target to have three children (at different times) even though she is 40 with no wasted rounds of IVF.
I have a woman who just saved $33K in her fertility journey by by tricks on how to get discounts. Plus, she was being refused IVF treatments by specific fertility clinics and told she needed donor eggs. I made some calls to get the best of the best doctors to help her. She saved the $30K in donor egg fees and currently has HER genetically normal baby in her belly.
Another woman found $15K worth of fertility benefits at her insurance company after our first phone call. Plus, while going through a personal tragedy, has learning how to be more positive and fearless in their journey and her relationship with her husband is better than what she ever dreamed possible (priceless).
Another did not have to start IVF all over again ($26K saving) because she found me when she had only one genetically healthy embryo left (after multiple failed embryo transfers). I showed her how to improve implantation, and it worked.
Multiple women have saved $26K or more NOT doing IVF when they were told that they needed it.
Another woman is experiencing pregnancy without a miscarriage for the first time since working with me (priceless).
I could go on and on. And these are just the financial savings. If you ask any of my clients what price they would put on going through this journey plus pregnancy and motherhood knowing how to be more fearless and confident and feeling less lonely and wholly guided throughout, and actually happy, I am sure they would put a $20K+ price tag on that part alone.
Even more powerful is the investment that people tell me they would have paid if they knew about me when they were trying to get pregnant. These people do not have the family that they spent years trying to create. One husband told me that if he could go back in time and work with me, he would have paid me over $100,000 not to have gone through all of the pain that his wife and he went through during the several years of unsuccessfully trying to have a second child.
Can I talk to someone in the program?
Yes, I have many of my client who are willing to discuss, but I would prefer to keep my clients as private and uninterrupted as much as possible. For that reason, I have client discussing their journey on my testimonial page.
How do I start?
The next step is to schedule a call. When you schedule, there is a quick questionnaire to fill out. This will give us a good overview of your journey so far. If we believe that we can help you with just some resource links, we will send those links to you and cancel our call. Otherwise, I will come prepared for our call with a customized strategy to share with you.
Will it be you that I am talking to when I schedule a call?
Most likely no. Recently, I have had to reserve all of my time for my current client calls. I like to be available to them for check-ins, strategy sessions, and emergencies.
The amazingly smart and supportive woman that you speak to, however, will be able to give you an overview of any red flags that she sees in your current journey that could help you move forward.
But when you are ready to get started, you will have unlimited access to me. And we will have our first call, the Science call, ASAP so we can get started on making sure your baby arrives soon!
