FNHAA, MANTA, MATMS, DCH
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.
Francesca is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays each week and alternate Saturdays. She is able to offer virtual or telephone consultations* if face to face sessions are not appropriate or available.
She works with couples or singles, for all aspects of reproductive or general health care, with a particular focus on pre-conception health care and all fertility issues, including IVF and donor programs, as well as pregnancy and menopause. Having helped thousands of couples conceive and raise healthy children, she is honoured to now be helping some of those children to conceive their own “better babies”.
*Phone and virtual consultations not available to patients based in the USA/Canada.
