Successful conception begins with an in-depth treatment approach that considers your entire story – your genetics, mental-emotional health, spiritual wellness, nutritional deficiencies, as well as environmental and social factors. Functional Fertility takes this 360° view of your health to uncover hidden barriers that may have been missed by other physicians, allowing your body to conceive naturally.
Functional fertility is driven to help women understand why they are struggling to conceive and supports their body’s ability to establish, maintain, and restore health, and to empower women to learn what to do about it through a personalized treatment plan that can also address PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid conditions, uterine fibroids, and other reproductive conditions.
Your chances of a successful pregnancy and having a baby can be improved by following through on three things:
- Expert guidance from a Vytal Health physician experienced in functional fertility
- Completing in-home lab testing
- Following recommendations from your Vytal Health clinician on lifestyle changes, as well as supplements and/or hormones to bring your body into optimal balance
Many of our clients have had a history of miscarriage and went on to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Whether you have had a miscarriage after IVF, IUI, or naturally, our physicians will create a plan to optimize your health and the health of your eggs to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Being pregnant after age 35 makes certain complications more likely, but a healthy pregnancy is still very possible – especially with a treatment approach that focuses on achieving optimal health for you and your eggs. We’ve helped many women in their mid-thirties and forties with fertility problems uncover the underlying causes, leading to more successful pregnancies and healthy babies.
Dr. McCubbins was extremely helpful in supporting me through my journey of having a baby. I had struggled to keep a pregnancy for several years before I started seeing her. She was recommended to me under the title of “The Baby Whisperer” and after we started working together I was able to give birth to a healthy baby boy. I appreciate that she comes with so much knowledge but also takes her time to think about what would be the best course of action for me. I would highly recommend Dr. McCubbins from Vytal Health!” - Erin , 41
I met Dr. Alicia when I was trying to get pregnant with my first child and had been trying for a year with no luck. I was diagnosed with PCOS and was told by my ob-gyn I wouldn’t be able to conceive without prescription medication. Luckily I found Dr. Alicia who is so knowledgeable about all aspects of what my body needed to get pregnant. She was so caring and helped guide me with nutrition, natural supplements, and exercise. Within 4 months I was pregnant with my beautiful healthy daughter, who’s now 5!” - Bonnie , 26
After 10 years of battling infertility and irregular periods, I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Alicia McCubbins. In April 2013, I started the regimen recommended by Dr. McCubbins, and by the end of July I heard the words I had longed to hear for years, “you are pregnant!” My pregnancy was not an easy one and was filled with many scares, but Dr. McCubbins supported me the whole way, both physically and emotionally. I honestly feel without this holistic support, fear would have taken over, and my story may not have ended well. Instead, today I prepare to celebrate the 5th birthday of my miracle boy on April 9th.” - Emily , 37
