Here’s what I know to be true: We can transform our future through preconception planning.
FEMbabes is dedicated to awakening your responsibility and power… It’s time that we reclaim the optimal health that all future generations deserve.
As a parent or future parent, you deserve to be equipped with the knowledge to prepare your body with the foundation necessary to boost your fertility and naturally conceive a radiantly healthy baby.
Hi! I'm Tonya Holcomb.
I’m a Naturopathic Doctor, a bioenergetic practitioner, an Emotion Code Practitioner and the founder of Fiercely Empowered Mama, FEMbabes, the Cleansing Circle and the Host of the Fiercely Awakening podcast.
My mission is to connect you to naturopathy and the fundamental laws of natural living and healing. Naturopathy takes into consideration the whole person, addresses the root cause with a non-invasive approach using natural modalities and, most importantly, recognizes your body’s inherent processes of healing.
Infertility is an epidemic. Helping women navigate this has always been a part of my practice. As a naturopathic doctor (with holistic doula AND fertility coach training), all of the work I’m offering is directly connected to fertility health because all of my work focuses on root-cause healing and achieving vibrant health.
Not only am I on a mission to normalize naturopathy as the go-to path for health and healing, but to also make holistic preconception care mainstream. I firmly believe that the vitality of our genetics must be valued and fiercely protected.
My desire for FEMbabes is to not only awaken couples to their power to naturally boost fertility and conceive a radiantly healthy baby but to streamline a healing path.I'm in!
Real Talk: Stopping the Downward Spiral
The health of EVERYONE’S fertility has been compromised. And the truth is, our genes are not the problem. This means you can 100% positively impact your future child’s health. And the time to make the biggest impact is before the child is conceived.
“In the United States, the most prosperous nation on Earth, preventable birth defects such as autism (ASD), attention deficit (ADD) and more have increased by over 1,000% in the last two decades alone. Sperm counts are at an all-time low. Over 50% of children born today have subtle birth defects that manifest later in life. More couples are having difficulty conceiving, and by 2040, if current trends continue, it is estimated that 50% of babies born in the U.S. will be born with serious birth defects.” ~Brighton Baby

Conception & Pregnancy: Now What?
Learn the best foods to nourish your body and baby throughout pregnancy and troubleshoot symptoms/communication (all, of course, from a naturopathic lens).

You’ll also receive detailed nourishment/supplement protocols for the first, second and third trimesters. We’ll also review supportive bodywork therapies for consideration.
While this is not a birthing course, there are some big birthing conversations that are critical to protecting your child’s health and vitality. Plus, you’ll get my list of items that are must-haves for the natural birth bag.
