Broaden Your Understanding of Treating Fertility
Gain more confidence in your treatment and the way you think and feel.
However things are for you right now, they can be better.
Or are you somewhere in between?
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….
Hi I'm Kirsten Wolfe and I have been successfully treating fertility for over 15 years.
I have also trained many of the fertility acupuncturists in Australia.
I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone wishing to know about treating fertility with a systematic approach in clinic. This is not a course on theory but one which you can instantly apply to your clinic. In addition, ongoing support with the Facebook forum and the Dropbox information is invaluable - Kirsten has not held back any information. She is an engaging and passionate teacher who clearly loves what she does and wants to impart her knowledge to others. This is by far the best seminar I have attended.
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 fertility successfully, which you can utilise at your earliest convenience.

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 6 talented Acupuncturists.
After successfully treating fertility for over 15 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 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.
Feedback from other Practitioners that have attended training by Kirsten Wolfe.
I've just completed The Fertile Life 3 day course in Brisbane 2016. Kirsten Wolfe is by far the most open and honest presenter I have had the experience of learning from, and she truly wants to help everyone who attends this course improve their treatment of fertility patients so that we can all as acupuncturists together, have the same success that she has with her patients. I believe the way in which Kirsten presents her course is really well done. I found 3 days of the Fertile Life course to be far easier to stayed focused in than any other 2-3 hour seminar I've been to before. The honesty and free sharing of her experiences and how she does things was extremely refreshing. I highly recommend taking this course no matter what level you're at when it comes to treating fertility patients. Thanks so much for your time and guidance Kirsten. Jon Rose - Brisbane
I came away from Kirsten's Fertile Life Seminar not only armed with the tools to be a "fertility detective" and the ability to confidently begin to apply that in my practice, but also with the inspiration to achieve the levels of success in fertility cases that Kirsten achieves on a daily basis in her practice, through her years of perseverance in developing a unique, and complete system of awakening the body's innate potential of fertility through the principles of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Functional Medicine, NLP, Nutritional Supplementation and Dietary Principles.
I was also very impressed with Kirsten's solid grasp of NLP, and patient-practitioner interaction skills that enable her to directly connect with patients instantly, and appropriately, based on their unique individual needs. This is a skill that all practitioners should aspire to bring into their practice to transform the lives of their patients.
A must attend for all practitioners and students wishing to improve their results in clinic overall, and particularly in the sphere of natural fertility
B. App. Sci (TCM) | Director of Qiology
This seminar far exceeded my expectations. As a student, I now feel confident in treating a wide range of womens' health issues relating to fertility and am looking forward to using the knowledge gained into my clinical practice treatments. The resources and mentoring group are greatly appreciated and will aid in treating future fertility patients. Thank you.
I have attended one of Kirsten's seminars and found her lecturing style to be informed and engaging. Not only that, I have been fortunate enough to work with Kirsten as my mentor in a clinical setting.
She is a supportive and encouraging teacher and her knowledge base in the area of women's health and fertility is world class. Learning Kirsten's Fertile Life Method has completely transformed my practice, and I highly recommend anyone working in the area of fertility to take this opportunity to learn from her.
B.HSc (Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine)
I loved Kirsten's seminar, I came back to my clinic motivated and with some new strategies I hadn't tried before. After attending to a lot of seminars on the subject its difficult to find new ways that have been tried and work instead of research that is often difficult to put into practice and often boring!
I am also amazed at the generosity and the huge amount of documents shared by Kirsten. I would highly recommend this seminar. Thank you Kirsten.
"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."

Its my first Mother’s Day today. I am a Mummy. I never thought this day would come.
How do you put into words, and how on earth do you thank someone for giving you your dream, what you have longed for for so many years…a healthy baby. Each time I try to put my appreciation into words I brim with tears as the emotional roller coaster of the past 3.5 years surges through my heart.
After 3.5 years of trying to bring a baby into this world, 6 early miscarriages and endless heartache, you were our saviour. Your knowledge and know how is unmatched. After so many years of despair, and countless approaches to conceiving successfully, endless research, appointments and blood tests - you came through for us.Here no nonsense approach was exactly what my husband and I needed. Someone who (for once) knew a hell of a lot more than me about what we needed to do. I say we because it takes two healthy balanced humans to make a healthy baby. You are a specialist in the fertility field. My husband and I did The Fertile Life Method - for 3 months.
After 3 months of the program, ‘no-trying’, gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and night shade free diet, weekly acupuncture, vitamins and herbs for both of us), and we conceived on May 17 2014. On February 11th, 2015, Ace Harley Hill was born 3.380kg bundle of sheer joy to his ridiculously proud parents. He is 3 months old now and sleeps through the night rarely cries, a perfect child, yet I have never cried so much in my life. My tears are ALL heart melting tears of overwhelming happiness. Every time I look at him, I appreciate what it took to bring him into this world, and to you Kirst, he is testament to you and your ability to make babies.
Forever in our hearts, love Sarsha, Mark and baby Ace XO
