Beauty powerhouse Mecca expands its wellness footprint with a by-appointment fertility consultation service at its Sydney flagship, in partnership with Jenna McDonald’s The Fertility Suite.
VOGUE AUSTRALIA: In a nutshell, what is The Fertility Suite?
JENNA MCDONALD: “We take an holistic approach and work with women who are preparing to conceive, those who are already trying to conceive, and women who are working with assisted reproductive technology like IVF.”
VA: What services are on offer at The Fertility Suite within Mecca?
JM: “I work as an acupuncturist and a Chinese herbalist and use supplements, lifestyle advice and dietary changes to support factors important for fertility. Every woman is different, but a typical appointment at Mecca will include a consultation, an acupuncture treatment, possibly herbal medicine, supplements, lifestyle advice and/or education. Our initial appointments will include our Mecca x The Fertility Suite Welcome Bundle, which contains all the information I wish all women knew when they were thinking about starting a family.”
VA: Is this a step towards being more open about reproductive health?
JM: “The Fertility Suite’s collaboration with Mecca is such a positive step in removing that taboo around the grittier side of fertility. Being created by a woman, for predominantly women, Mecca is just an incredible and accessible space to start this conversation and drive the normalisation of fertility health, and the challenges that we face when we decide to start a family.”
