"So much with fertility is not within your control, and it's very emotional. We can work with you to put more in your control, such as making sure you're nurturing your soul, getting enough rest, eating appropriate foods for managing stress," says Integrative Gynecologist Katherine Thurer, MD. 
The members of the Integrative Fertility team take the time to get to know each patient and the individual circumstances in that patient's life.
