Fertility Over 40 with Womens Health Naturopath Angela Hywood
In today's episode of the Conceive Baby Podcast we’re talking about a topic which is growing enormously and that’s Fertility over 40. I know in my practice I’m seeing more and more women starting or growing their families in their 40’s.
But biologically, how fertile are we? What are your chances, really? And what can you do to stack the odds in your favour.
Today we’re going to be answering all these questions and more with the lovely Angela Hywood, who understands this topic intimately, both personally and professionally.
Angela is an experienced naturopathic clinician with over 20 years of clinical experience. She runs a busy clinic in Perth Western Australia, specialising in integrative endocrinology, fertility and women’s health.
Prior to Angela’s career in naturopathy, she studied at the School of Pharmacy, Curtin University of Technology.
Angela practiced at the world-renowned Jocelyn Centre of Natural Fertility Management, Australia’s first specialist practice in the area of Preconception Health Care & Fertility Management and has dedicated her career to fertility and women’s health practice. With her uniquely integrative approach she has assisted many of couples overcome their fertility obstacles and fulfil their dream of becoming parents.
Angela shares my passion for helping couples become parents and seeing healthy families thrive. She is a mother of 2 little ones herself, both carefully and consciously planned and both naturally conceived (after 40).

Your Lunar Cycle
If you’ve been trying to conceive for a while you probably know about ovulation trackers and temperature charting, well today we’re going to be looking at a different way of charting your menstrual cycle and that’s via your lunar cycle.
In this intriguing discussion we talk about the origins of the lunar cycle (it was actually developed by a Doctor) and how you can use your lunar cycle to optimise you chances of conceiving, and perhaps even increase your odds of having a boy or a girl!
The PCOS Diet
In this episode I speak with Women's Health Dietitian Stephanie Valakas. We discuss the most common hormonal disorder found in women, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS as it’s most commonly known.
PCOS affects around 10% of women in Australia and can have a significant impact on fertility and our ability to fall pregnant.
We discuss symptoms and diagnosis, but most importantly in the episode we do a deep dive into diet and the simple changes you can make to improve symptoms, improve your fertility and improve your chances of conceiving and carrying your healthy baby.
Egg Freezing - Edited - 2
In this episode I speak with renowned Melbourne Fertility Specialists, Dr Lynn Burmeister about a very topical issue. One which is growing rapidly. And that’s egg freezing.
More and more women are turning to egg freezing as an 'insurance policy', if they haven’t met Mr Right or are just not ready for a baby right now, but know it’s something they want in their future.
But how much of a guarantee of a healthy baby is it really?
What’s involved in the process and what can you do to optimise your chances of a healthy egg collection and a healthy baby?
We’ll be answering all these questions and more! Enjoy!
