She has supported many couples in their fertility journeys, many of them suffered from reproductive issues such as endometriosis, PCOS and sperm health issues.

Over the last few years Angela has strengthened her development and knowledge of fertility by honing her skills and diagnostic tools, focusing heavily on Functional Medicine and genetics as the key that opens the lock to infertility.
