Is your fertility journey proving to be an exhausting one? Do the tests, late night research and medical appointments feel like a second job?

Each weekly module offers
Who should register for The Fertility Companion programme?
The Fertility Companion is designed to support anyone who is feeling overwhelmed, lonely, angry or confused on the path of fertility investigation or treatment. This programme is for you if you are
- facing fertility challenges and considering fertility investigations and treatment
- already having fertility treatment, like IUI, IVF or ICSI and looking for holistic support on the journey
- determined to optimise your chances of a successful healthy pregnancy without losing yourself to the process
- worried about losing connection and intimacy with your loved ones
- struggling to trust your own innate creativity and fertility
- completely confused about what to eat and overwhelmed at the idea of preparing healthy, nourishing food.
The Fertility Companion may not be right for everyone, particularly if
- you’re planning for a surrogate to carry your baby, this programme is most useful for those having treatment themselves
- you don’t believe food has any impact on fertility
- you’re unwilling to adjust your diet and lifestyle choices
What will I receive when I register?
- 6 weeks of content, delivered directly to your inbox.
How will I learn?
The Fertility Companion course will be released in six easy-to-follow modules, delivered directly to your inbox.
Rather than releasing modules on a weekly basis, you will receive all the content at once with a guide from me as to how to approach it. However, we are all unique, with different experiences and needs, so you get to skip around and use the content in whatever order works best for you.
What are Ruth’s Clients Saying?
“With the gentlest of words Ruth has a unique gift and ability to address such a delicate subject… It is very clear that Ruth understands the situation in depth and tackles it, without direction, but from a place of support. More often than not, I realise, actually, it’s OK to feel how I feel and to think what I am thinking.
This is a safe space that has been created where all my emotions, the ups and downs, have value. Ruth reaches into your heart with love and humour (which let’s face it is needed!) and her words are relevant for all areas of life. It’s an honour to have crossed paths with this wonderful work.” Sarah, Canada
What Are my Options?
The Fertility Companion will soon be available as a self-study course, which you can download and work through on your own. Watch this space for updates!
Your Enrollment Gives Back
Infertility is a disease, not a choice. Ruth is very aware that in Ireland (and many other countries) fertility treatment is not covered by most health insurance plans and is not available under government or health agency funding. If you don’t have money in the bank or the capacity to borrow, treatment is quite simply not an option. For many people facing infertility, this means they will never have children.
When you invest in your own health through The Fertility Companion programme, you’re also making a difference in providing access to fertility treatment, thanks to the work of the Irish charity Pomegranate.
With every enrollment, we proudly donate a portion of your fee to this meaningful organization. Pomegranate is dedicated to supporting those suffering from infertility, helping them to take a step further towards becoming a parent by helping to fund fertility treatment.
“Infertility is such a lonely struggle – you can feel like life is on hold indefinitely and nobody understands. Ruth McKenna’s programme is designed to offer support and guidance through this difficult time to enable you to make the most of life. As someone who has been through infertility, Ruth understands the highs and lows of Trying To Conceive.” Fiona McPhillips, Pomegranate
