On this episode of Food Freedom and Fertility Caitlin Johnson and Sophia Pavia have guest Dr. Naomi Whittaker, an OBGYN fertility surgeon focused on women’s restorative reproductive medicine, compassionate healthcare, and education. This episode dives in the difference between NaPro vs. IVF for infertility. For those of you unfamiliar with NaPro, NaProTECHNOLOGY
refers to Natural Procreative Technology, an approach to understanding women’s reproductive health and regulating fertility by identifying and treating the underlying causes of problems—not simply placing a Band-Aid on them. Instead of treating symptoms, NaPro TECHNOLOGY uses natural methods and restorative surgery to treat diseases. It also pairs with the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, which actively engages a woman to track and manage her fertility.
Dr. Whittaker is a board certified OBGYN and a fellowship trained surgeon who specializes in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaProTechnology, which works cooperatively with a woman’s body to treat the underlying cause of gynecologic issues and infertility, such as endometriosis and PCOS. She helps women improve their gynecologic health, and avoid/achieve pregnancy in accordance with their natural fertility using the latest research, medicine, and surgery.
