It doesn't matter which is the case ... it can always be better. You can always learn more, become a better practitioner, gain more knowledge and confidence.
All it takes is that one decision, and a little bit of know-how and that's where I come in….
I am very passionate about sharing the skills I have learnt and have trained over 100 acupuncturists in Australia & overseas in The Fertile Life Method.
Fertile Life Method - Pregnancy & Birth is a 2 day interactive seminar exploring 16 years of clinical knowledge for improving treatment options, optimising pregnancy & improving birthing experiences for your patients whilst expanding on the Fertile Life Fertility seminar.
We'll be covering a lot of ground, and doing so in a fairly practical, straight-talking, no-nonsense way. You will develop solid skills and knowledge throughout this course to treat pregnancy & brith with confidence, which you can utilise at your earliest convenience.
The Fertile Life™ Method has been built around Chinese Medicine, the latest clinical research and the teams 50+ years of combined experience of working with couples trying to conceive, pregnancy, birth and post natal care. It provides both couples and individuals who have been experiencing primary and secondary infertility, whether through IVF or trying to conceive naturally, with a comprehensive program of natural treatment options to conceive and achieve a successful pregnancy, create the birth they want and to look after themselves post natally.
My teaching style is practical, straightforward , engaging and fun.
Hi, I'm Kirsten Wolfe the director of Mornington Chinese Medicine, an acupuncture only clinic and I'm honoured to work with a team of 7 talented Acupuncturists.
After successfully treating fertility, pregnancy & birth for over 16 years, The Fertile Life™ method was designed by me, it is an accumulation of my study, clinical experience and unique knowledge.
My practice solely focuses on treatment of Reproductive and Women’s health conditions such as infertility (natural and IVF), pregnancy, pre birth, labour and post natal.This has allowed me to become extremely knowledgeable in the field of fertility. Known as “the baby maker” by my patients and professional colleges. I have treated thousands of couples and helped them conceive from the easiest cases to the most difficult where I was their last chance.
I have attended lots births as both a Doula (birth attendant) & acupuncturist over the past 16 years in the public & private system. I also run birth workshops for couple - Creating Better Births.
I have built a strong reputation on the Mornington Peninsula in gynaecology and fertility providing optimum patient care pre and post natal alongside midwives, gynaecologists, obstetricians and IVF specialists. I have trained under Fertility experts such as Randine Lewis (The Fertile Soul Method), Brandon Horne, Yaron Seidman, Jane Lyttleton and Debra Betts, plus I attended the Integrative Fertility Symposium in Vancouver with over 18 presenters this year. This has built a vast knowledge of Chinese Reproductive Medicine.
This pregnancy course is a must for anyone wanting to treat pregnant women. Kirsten is so generous with her knowledge, tool kit and self. She is a great presenter that is raw, real and clear. Every question you can and want to ask is always answered and so at the end of the course you feel completely confident in going back into the clinic.
just loved it!! was a great atmosphere, felt comfortable to speak and mingle with other practitioners, was a great way to have a seminar, just loved it!! And Kirsten is amazing, so approachable and a wealth of knowledge which she is happy to pass on as well as guide us continually, cant speak more highly of her.
Kirsten Wolfe's Fertile Life Method is a must for any Practitioner who wants to successfully treat fertility issues, both male and female. Her knowledge base and attention to detail is second to none and greater understanding of the complexity of creating babies is had by all who attend, whether new graduates or seasoned practitioners.
Not only does Kirsten arm you with vital knowledge and insight, she delivers the information in a friendly, hands on and interactive manner. All questions are answered in depth and she is happy to share any knowledge that she has.
Not only are you able to take away invaluable knowledge but Kirsten sets up a support for you to contact her and ask questions after the end of the seminar. This sort of ongoing mentorship is rare and is part of what makes Kirsten so outstanding. Thank you for an eye opening and practice changing weekend Kirsten.
Kirsten is one of the most engaging and enthusiastic presenters I have seen. Her knowledge in the areas of fertility, pregnancy and birth is outstanding and presented in a way which is understandable and not overwhelming. I would recommend her to anyone interested in this area of Chinese Medicine
A great comprehensive course. I feel inspired and excited to implement these new skills and approach. A strong focus on utilising western medical tests to benefit TCM treatments and positive pregnancy outcomes. Highly recommend!
"Thank you so much for such an incredibly inspiring, passionate, dedicated, wise, brilliant seminar! I could have done days more! You made the hours feel like seconds. I loved every bit. I went straight back to my clinic confident, clear, excited and immediately put the new knowledge I had gained into practice. Thank you."
"Kirsten presented herself. Human, relatable and modern.. Not some boring old stiff reading from a text that is 100 year old. She gave real life examples and told it how it is."
