At aged 37 and after nearly 2 years trying to conceive i had started to lose hope. just three months after seeing Colette my wish came true i was pregnant. To anyone trying to get pregnant i highly recommend Colette.
Colette treated me in preparation for a cycle of IVF after a few failed attempts. Taking this holistic approach and embracing a complimentary diet and lifestyle, I am delighted to say that it worked.
