MTHFR and Preconception


The course is now open. Enroll for the latest, proven MTHFR and preconception advice to help you fall pregnant.

MTHFR and Preconception is for you if:

  • You’re fed up and frustrated with all the different messages on the web about the MTHFR gene and preconception
  • You’re totally confused by the mixed messages and just want to know what to do
  • You’ve been told one thing by your doctor and another by your gynecologist
  • You’ve been told not to worry about the MTHFR gene mutation
  • You’re scared to do anything because all you hear is doom and gloom.
  • You’re frustrated that your medical practitioner doesn't have the answers about your inability to conceive


“After struggling with chronic fatigue and post glandular fever for years, I found Carolyn who I heard specialised with MTHFR, a condition I knew I had, but didn't know how to treat. I had been trying for a second child for 4 years. I already had a 5-year-old which took us 10 years to conceive. IVF Sydney had told us that even with IVF and ICSIS our chances of conceiving were around 3%. Within a year of being on the MTHFR program which addressed my pyrrole levels, B12, and folate status and cutting out gluten, at 43 years old, I conceived naturally and now have a 4-month-old baby. I have found Carolyn to be continually supportive of my journey. I think many people are living with undiagnosed MTHFR variants and I wish I had found out earlier!”

"I'm loving the course so far - thank you for putting all the information in one place - I'm for the first time "swimming" in answers instead of questions and problems I can't find answers to. Thank you Carolyn Ledowsky for all your work in this regard."

Why Put It Off Any Longer When You Can Learn From The Expert?

Hi there. I’m Carolyn Ledowsky, the founder of MTHFR Support Australia. 

I founded this company because I could see there were little to no resources for people with the MTHFR gene mutation, especially here in Australia.

Active folate is so crucial to a wide range of conditions, none more so than pregnancy. I was astounded by how many people I saw who had lost babies, had multiple miscarriages, children with cleft palate, spina bifida, autism, ADD/ADHD and were getting no help from the medical practitioners.

It's not uncommon for me to see women who have had as many as 10 miscarriages and NOT ONE doctor ever thought to check these patients for the MTHFR gene mutation. It's just plain wrong.

So I am passionate about getting the message out to all people trying to conceive. This gene does matter! It DOES have an impact on preconception and pregnancy. In my clinic, we ONLY work with people who have the MTHFR gene. We work 6 days a week, every week of the year and specialize in this GENE only. There is no other clinic in the world that does this. We offer online consultations all over the world. I really do consider myself and my clinic of practitioners leaders in our field.

Seeing couples though a healthy pregnancy is such a joy!

I don't want you to make the same mistakes many of my patients made by not addressing the MTHFR gene mutation until after they had multiple miscarriages, or couldn't conceive.


There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution and particularly those with the MTHFR gene mutation need guidance through preconception.

This preconception course will guide you through step by step details of what people with the MTHFR gene need to do to prepare for pregnancy. And even if you or your partner don't have the MTHFR gene mutation, this work is still a must for anyone preparing for pregnancy.

Did you know?

MTHFR mutations are present in about 53% of the population. If you are yet to be tested, there is a real chance you may carry this genetic deficiency and you will need to support your folate levels if you are wanting to fall pregnant.

But if you don't have MTHFR, do you still need this course?

If you don't have an MTHFR gene mutation your folate levels may still be low due to lifestyle choices, diet, and stress. So you still need to restore and improve folate levels to ensure your DNA is optimal and that all nutrients are at adequate levels to ensure you have the best chance to fall pregnant.


I was referred to Carolyn by my GP about 2 years ago as she identified I had issues with inflammation causing problems with my thyroid that could not be addressed by ‘traditional western' medicine. 

When I went to Carolyn she identified that this was as a result of an MTHFR mutation and we began making lifestyle changes to address this inclusive of herbal and vitamin supplements. We worked to limit the toxic load by making changes in personal care products and household products in addition to significant changes in diet, I was a big pasta and cheese fan but said goodbye with only positive results. The change in diet was gradual but results were seen in blood tests and in how I was feeling.

We then worked to clear out my liver and balance my hormones as I’d also decided to go off the pill around the same time I started having thyroid issues, 'just because'. My aim was to get my body ready to provide my child with the best possible environment and start in life.

So when my health problems were balanced and after taking the supplements Carolyn gave me, when the time came to ‘try’ we did it once and that was it, we know this because the next day my husband left for a month in the army reserve. We’d never ‘tried’ before.

My pregnancy was complication free and recovery has been good. There is no doubt that Carolyn has changed my life for the better and I have never been healthier thanks to her.”

You may just want someone to step you through the course with help.

How do I know if I have the MTHFR gene?

You can ask your doctor or practitioner to give you a referral to test for the C677T and A1298C MTHFR genes. If they are unable to assist you with this request, you can order the test here if you live in the US, or here if you live in Australia. This is a simple blood test.
