We are a reverse-aging fertility clinic.
At She Does Medicine: Natural & Integrative Fertility, our mission goes beyond providing healthcare; it's about rewriting the narrative surrounding women's fertility & reproductive health, particularly for Black women and other women of color.
We understand that the journey to motherhood is a deeply personal and unique experience, one that deserves the utmost attention and care.
Inclusive Care for Unique Experiences
In the realm of fertility, statistics often tell a story that is far from inclusive. While fertility challenges are widespread, the experiences of Black women and other women of color have too often been overlooked or underestimated. It's time to bridge the gaps in fertility statistics and shed light on the overlooked realities faced by these resilient individuals actively trying to conceive.
Our Commitment to Equal Access and Personalized Care
Studies have indicated that Black women and other women of color face poorer IVF outcomes, such as a higher risk of miscarriage and a lower birth rate. This disparity is often due to a phenomenon called "weathering" - early health deterioration from repeated experiences of social and economic adversity caused by living in a 'raced' society.
At She Does Medicine: Natural & Integrative Fertility, we recognize these disparities and advocate not just for equal access but access to effective and personalized fertility treatments that address the phenomenon of weathering on reproductive health. We believe that every woman's fertility journey is unique, and our treatments are tailored to meet those unique needs.
Towards Health Equity in Maternal Care
The challenges don't end after conception. Black women and other women of color face higher maternal morbidity and mortality risks. These disparities are multifaceted, encompassing issues like inadequate prenatal care, systemic bias, and healthcare inequities. Addressing these gaps is not only a matter of reproductive health but also a crucial step towards achieving health equity.
Your Trusted Partner on the Path to Motherhood
As we navigate the intricate landscape of fertility, it's imperative to bridge the gaps in statistics and amplify the voices of Black women and other women of color. By recognizing their unique experiences—whether in infertility rates, treatment seeking, or maternal health risks—we take a step towards a more inclusive and equitable fertility journey for all.
At She Does Medicine: Natural & Integrative Fertility, we see ourselves as more than just a healthcare provider; we are your trusted partner on the path to motherhood.
As a society, it's our responsibility to champion representation, provide accessible resources, and advocate for comprehensive healthcare that truly addresses the diverse needs of women pursuing their dreams of motherhood.
Only by working together can we ensure that the statistics reflect the lived experiences of all women on their path to motherhood.

Being a powerful woman is not just about looking good, it's about full embodiment of vibrant fertility, personal power & confidence. - Dr. K. Duga
Dr. Kertia W. Duga serves as the 'middle fertility doc' between the gynecologist and reproductive endocrinologist (IVF doctor), caring for the brave woman and couple navigating through the confusing landscape of 'infertility'.
She is the best kind of doctor to see if you feel like your diagnosis doesn’t tell you what’s wrong. She takes her time to see the connections, and follow symptoms of disease to the root of the problem.
She is able to identify the root causes of your ‘infertility’ by using functional medicine testing, advanced hormone testing, looking for ‘optimal’ levels in your labs, not just ‘normal’, and reviewing your menstrual cycle charts with you.
Dr. Kertia W. Duga is a board certified naturopathic physician which means her medical specialty is in a subset of medicine called naturopathic medicine. Think of your family doctor, but instead of using drugs and surgery first, while knowing very little to nothing about diet and exercise, Dr. Duga uses drugs second and is an expert in nutrition, exercise, supplements and botanicals.
She has been a healthcare professional for over 15 years. She is the founder of She Does Medicine: Natural & Integrative Fertility, an online women's health clinic that expands access to quality health care that meets the market demand for affordable and effective fertility treatment options.
As a naturopathic physician with a subspecialty in integrative endocrinology- the study of hormones and metabolism, she is an expert in the natural treatment of many woman's health conditions and has used her expertise to create a natural proven protocol that helps women and couples increase their odds of getting pregnant.
While working as an ER nurse she realized that our medical system doesn't address the root causes of the medical conditions most patients are facing. And because of this people who only access health care through the medical system rarely become better or healthier when they are having health issues. As a result. she witnessed patients get stuck in finding a solution to their health problems when conventional medicine failed at getting them results.
Inspired to create a new model of health care that helped patients improve their health and thrive in life, she made the shift to naturopathic medicine in 2012 and has since become one of the very few medically trained and naturally focused women's health specialist. Her work today helps women and couples get out of the "infertility" struggle so that they can have a healthy pregnancy without the emotional stress.
She is a sister to many women as a Soror to the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the oldest of three siblings. She is a dancer and is always down for loungin', struttin' and dancin' on the beach.
