Founded in 1997 by Julia Indichova, author of Inconceivable (Three Rivers Press 2001) and The Fertile Female: How the Power of Longing for a Child Can Save Your Life and Change the World (Adell Press 2007), Fertile Heart is a patient-driven community featuring fertility forums, teleconferences, nutritional guidance and blogs with sobering observations of the infertility industry.

Dr. Goldstein, past president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, is internationally renowned for his pioneering work in vasectomy reversals and microsurgical repair of varicoceles and blockages. He is the first American surgeon to perform the Chinese method of No-Scalpel Vasectomy.

"I'm honored to offer couples wresting with reproductive challenges the opportunity to engage in conversation with someone as highly regarded in his field as Marc Goldstein," says Julia Indichova.

A health enthusiast, long distance runner and triathlete—who points his patients toward lifestyle and diet adjustments along with any necessary treatment—Dr. Goldstein is a perfect match for the Fertile Heart™ philosophy of seeing infertility as a symptom rather than a disease.

"In close to two decades of counseling and research," notes Indichova, "I have found that the missing piece of the puzzle for both women and men is often an underlying imbalance which allows the person to function but impedes the more challenging task of producing healthy genetic material for a full-term pregnancy."

Although in our culture, a delayed pregnancy is still largely viewed as a "woman's problem," in the last several years a number of studies have focused on male factor infertility and sperm-sabotaging agents such as industrial pollutants and obesity. 

"I tell the aspiring mothers and fathers in my workshops that when our children don't show up on our timetable, they are giving us a chance to re-parent ourselves; perhaps they're even saving our lives." 

The most recent findings released by Stanford University School of Medicine showing a viable connection between azoospermic (no measurable sperm in the ejaculate) infertility and testicular cancer is an alarming validation of that idea.     

One of the core tenets of The Fertile Heart™ Ovum Program—a set of mind body tools that grew out of Julia Indichova's personal experience and counseling—is the notion of  increasing overall levels of health as a first step toward overcoming barriers to conception.

The Guest Teacher Chats, initiated by Fertile Heart in 2004, feature specialists in all aspects of reproductive health trained in mainstream and alternative healing modalities such as acupuncture and classical homeopathy.    

"Our intention," adds Julia Indichova, "is not only to provide information. What we hope to offer is a space for co-creating a community of mothers and fathers who are fully engaged in their own healing and see themselves as the primary agents of change in their bodies, in their lives and in the world."
