Larisa Corda

Dr Larisa Corda is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Expert in Reproductive Medicine.

She qualified from Imperial College London and her training has been both in the UK and Australia, seeing her gain an understanding and appreciation of gynaecological, obstetric and fertility issues across a wide international population. She believes in a holistic approach to treating a patient that addresses many lifestyle factors, as well as a combination of Eastern and Western medical approaches, and is a passionate womens’ rights ambassador, with roles on a number of international charities that have included UN Women and The Circle. She believes in using innovative natural and mild IVF techniques to assist conception where needed, is ITV This Morning’s and Channel Mum’s Fertility Expert, regularly appears and is quoted by the media, and has several research interests, some of which have been published in international journals. These include the effect of stress on reproductive outcomes, older age motherhood, as well as the current global injustice of inequity of access to reproductive care. She is also brand ambassador for KicksCount and Wellness Sisters, and has launched her own website which offers guidance and support for all those wanting a natural empowering approach to their fertility. In keeping with this, she has devised a unique programme for fertility and pregnancy called The Conception Plan, which aired on This Morning, and provided help for couples affected by infertility who applied and did not qualify for treatment on the NHS. The holistic approach encompassing diet, exercise, stress management and toxin free living resulted in a natural conception for one couple, after 3 years of struggle, and the birth of This Morning’s very own Baby Freddie!
