Why is MTHFR important in fertility and pregnancy?

One of the most common things I hear is the utter confusion that couples facing fertility issues find themselves in after they:

  • Just discovered the MTHFR gene and fell down an internet rabbit hole try to research and understand it all
  • Were tested for it but received no explanation on its effects
  • Were prescribed treatments that instead of helping made them feel worse
  • Were told it may be one of the facets playing a role in their present health issues, but have no idea what it is


I am Carolyn Ledowsky. I am the founder of MTHFR & Fertility and MTHFR Support Australia. As an MTHFR researcher, trainer and presenter on MTHFR for doctors and health practitioners around the world, my interest is in training as many practitioners and patients as possible on how important this pathway is to good health. I also work closely with Sterling Hill who developed the Sterlings App for interpretation of your 23andme genetic profile.

With the wealth of scientific (and at times confusing and complex) information found on the internet surrounding MTHFR, it is no wonder so many hopeful parents end up going around in circles and getting overwhelmed and confused!

This can especially be the case for those searching for valid and understandable information when it comes to MTHFR and fertility and pregnancy, as they are both very important topics where the health of both mother and child can rely on thoroughly understanding this vital information. We aim to help you navigate your health and wellness at MTHFR Support & Fertility.
