About Alicia

Hi! I am Dr. Alicia McCubbins and Functional Fertility Support is my superpower! Though I joyfully help patients of all ages and conditions, I’m an expert in natural fertility solutions, and I am passionate about helping couples to conceive, even when the odds are stacked against them.

Fertility support is not just about treating eggs and sperm. We must focus on optimizing health for the entire human being if we hope to create new life. The journey can be challenging, emotional, alienating, even hopeless at times. I’ve been in those shoes and know how important it is to have an expert who cares and understands deeply. I love supporting fertility patients as they find balance in their bodies and strive to conceive the ultimate gift:a healthy baby.

As a mother of a toddler, I feel like I have already lived a lifetime of pain leading up to pregnancy. I spent the majority of my life trying NOT to get pregnant while I was focusing on my education and career. My husband and I then tried to conceive for 3 years when we decided we were “ready,” but our bodies were not yet prepared. I became desperate, motivated, and willing to do anything and everything to get pregnant.

Being a naturopathic doctor (ND), I have been trained as a primary care physician, blending conventional and natural approaches to all conditions. I also developed a successful fertility specialty in my private practice. My education and experience had empowered me with the knowledge I needed to troubleshoot my own fertility journey from a medical perspective. That said, the education I received from those 3 years of struggle is greater than anything I’ve learned in medical school or private practice.

During that time, I truly began to relate to the patients I was seeing. Women in their 20s, 30s and 40s kept coming to me for help because they weren’t getting the support they needed from their conventional physicians. Many of them were told they were “infertile”… What a shame! They weren’t actually infertile, but in fact, 90% of them successfully conceived with naturopathic care within 3-12 months of working with me.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the definition of infertility is “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse,” or after 6 months if over 35 years old.

Here’s the catch: my husband and I were not “infertile.” We had hormonal imbalances due to stress, some nutrient deficiencies, and we both needed some gentle preconception detoxification. With time, patience, and focus on self-care, we were able to create a healthy and happy child. I attribute our success to not only addressing the root cause of our issues, but also because we partnered with a clinician who listened and supported us comprehensively. I pledge to be that clinician for you.

Whether you are currently trying to conceive, thinking about having children some day, or are feeling resigned from the struggle of navigating the current healthcare model, I am here to support your physical, mental and emotional health. Together, we can achieve balance and enhance the body’s inherent fertile wisdom.
