Our Clinic

Our Clinic

The Jocelyn Centre for Natural Fertility Management was founded in 1996 by Francesca Naish as a clinic and outreach service to carry out natural therapies & educational programs for reproductive health – which she had originally pioneered and performed in solo practice since 1975.

At The Jocelyn Centre, a thriving multi-discipline team of practitioners work alongside administrative staff to serve a broad community of patients and customers from all over the world, with a range of high quality, effective and safe therapy programs and products. As  we have now trained over 1000 health care professionals from Australia and overseas, ‘Natural Fertility Management’ has come to describe a modality and is practiced in many other clinics nationally and internationally.

In November 2008, The Jocelyn Centre moved into lovely new premises in the Sydney CBD in response to the need for improved access from all Sydney, country and interstate regions (we’re a 2 minute walk from Town Hall train station).

The pictures on our ‘Baby Board’ and in our photo albums at reception bear witness to the success of the thousands of proud parents who have attended The Jocelyn Centre for help.

Francesca Naish

Founder & Director of Natural Fertility Management Pty Ltd

Francesca pioneered the use of clinically effective, safe natural fertility management methods over 40 years ago as a direct result of searching for better ways to manage her own fertility in a climate where reproductive health was increasingly becoming medicalised instead of being viewed as a natural and healthy part of life.

In addition to her work on contraception and general reproductive health, she pioneered the concept and practice of ‘preconception health care’ which is now a term in common use throughout both natural and orthodox approaches to fertility and pregnancy.

Due to the demand for this information, Francesca wrote her first best-selling book Natural Fertility and has since co-authored, with Janette Roberts, a further four books including The Natural Way to Better Babies, Better Pregnancy, Better Birth & Bonding and Better Breastfeeding, with international editions published in several countries.

With her colleague Jane Bennett she has trained many health practitioners nationally and internationally in Natural Fertility Management, and recently published The Complete Guide to Optimum Conception and a comprehensive, instructional menstrual cycle charting app.

Francesca remains at the forefront of the field by engaging in continued research and development of the increasingly popular and critical areas of natural fertility management, preconception health care, reproductive health and all associated health modalities. She continues to practice at The Jocelyn Centre and is a popular lecturer and speaker at colleges, seminars and conferences in Australia and overseas. She also makes appearances on radio, TV and in print media.

Philosophy

Our vision at Natural Fertility Management is to create optimal health for ourselves, our children and future generations by making known the specific methods of fertility awareness, nutrition, natural therapies, lifestyle and environmental approaches which lead directly to peak reproductive health, empowered self management of fertility and to the birth of healthy new generations.

These methods call for the practice of healthy lifestyles which furthers our ultimate vision of playing an active and responsible part in the movement toward a sustainable, environmentally friendly and healthy future for this planet and all those living on it now and into the future.

We aim to meet this vision by providing worldwide accessibility to our educational materials, self-help Guides and Kits, publications and other products, as well as offering tailored natural therapy programs for women, their partners and families.
