My name is Iva Keene, I'm the Co-founder and Director of Natural Fertility Prescription.com and the NFP Fertility Coaching Program. I've been a certified naturopathic physician for nearly 15 years. I hold a Masters degree in Reproductive Medicine (MRMed) from University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and a Bachelor's degree in Health Science in Naturopathy (BHSc Nat. ND) from Endeavour College of Natural Health in Melbourne Australia.
I'm the creator of the Natural Fertility Prescription program which has been endorsed by one of my mentors and the pioneer of 'Natural Fertility' - Nim Barnes, the founder of Foresight, the Association for the Promotion of Preconception Care in the UK.
My articles, ebooks, videos and blogs have been read and watched by hundreds of thousands people since the inception of the NFP in 2008. I'm proud to say that NFP Information has reached more than 1.3 million website viewers over the last 10 years. From an early age I had a passion for health and natural medicine. I grew up in a household of mainstream medical doctors where conditions and diseases were discussed over dinner all the time. I had insatiable curiosity for how everything works in the body and how it can be repaired if something is broken.
My parents were more than happy to share their knowledge with me. At 15 I knew my true passion laid in natural medicine and I followed my heart by reading every book I could find on various holistic medicine approaches. I was fascinated by the integrative, functional-medicine approach including how our mind and emotions impact our physical body and wellbeing.
When the time came to choose an area to specialize in, the miracle and mystery of life creation was it for me. It combined all my passions and curiosities and led me on a wild journey of research and exploration on how natural medicine can help infertile couples create a beautiful healthy baby. I was blessed to experience the miracle of pregnancy and birth with my own daughter at 41. I'm passionate about helping restore health and fertility in women and couples considered 'too old for pregnancy'.
And here I am, thousands of consultations with couples later to share my journey with you. I view our work together as a crucial part of the puzzle to help your body to do its healing work naturally. We are all miracles, with miraculous bodies ready to bring more amazing life into this wondrous world!
