I take your Motherhood journey as seriously as I take my own.
You have my promise
that I will hold everything you share with me as sacred, confidential, and privileged;
that I will do everything humanly possible to help you have the baby you dream of having;
and that I will tell you honestly if I don’t think I can help you.
WE ACTIVELY PLAN FOR AND SHAPE THE BODY, EDUCATION, CAREER, WEDDING, EVEN THE WARDROBE THAT WE WANT. WHY WOULDN’T WE DO THE SAME WHEN IT COMES TO OUR FERTILITY, PREGNANCY, AND MOTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES?
(SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE WILL EVER DO IN OUR LIFETIME!)

I am a scientist specializing in reproductive health, human flourishing, and the intergenerational transmission of health. I am also a head-over-heels in love Wifey and Mommy of 2 (+Baby Number 3 on the way!).
After losing my Mother at birth, it became my life’s work to walk beside women through some of the hardest, most important and beautiful parts of their lives—their baby and Motherhood journeys.
I have formally studied and supported thousands of women over the past 21 years. I also personally use the system that I have developed for my Clients, and I gave birth to my first two children just before my 35th and 37th birthdays. Our third baby will be born just before I turn 40. We conceived all three children on the first try.

Dr. Cleopatra Abdou Kamperveen is a psychologist, author, and professor, best known for her innovative research and work on reproductive health, human flourishing, and the intergenerational transmission of health. Her multi-million-dollar research program has been funded by multiple arms of the National Institutes of Health and numerous other funding agencies.
She has published dozens of articles in fields as diverse as psychology, medicine, public health, aging, and sociology, and has been cited nearly 800 times in the past five years in the scientific literature. She is also a selected member of the Fulbright Specialists Roster.
Dr. Cleopatra is the author of Get Pregnant in No Time!, The Mommy Success Toolkit, and For Every Body: The 5 Essential Fertility, Pregnancy, & Postpartum Supplements. The creator of The Mommy Lifecycle, she teaches women all over the world how to create the families and the lives of their dreams. She provides a science-based + big-hearted space for fertility, pregnancy, and Motherhood support and education for women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.
“I am 36 years old, have a wacky, unpredictable cycle and a diagnosis (PCOS, plus some other problems) that doctors said would make it nearly impossible for me to conceive, and I still got pregnant on THE VERY FIRST TRY using your conceiving system. Because of you, we are now expecting a baby for the exact time of year we wanted without any of the stress that we have seen so many of our friends go through. We can’t thank you enough for our baby girl on the way and the ease with which she came to us.”
— Jessica A., Santa Monica, CA
“I can’t think of another scientist in the world who is both SO BRILLIANT and SO LOVING, and it’s with this unique combination of brains and heart that Dr. Cleopatra is literally changing the way that women have babies and define motherhood on a daily basis. Because of her, professional women are now stepping into their fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood proactively, consciously, grounded with the best information, and soaring with joy and the magic of possibility.”
— Yael B., NYC
“You obsessed—in the best possible way—about my pregnancy for me, which meant that I didn’t have to and that I got to ENJOY being pregnant and relax into my pregnancy. And what you don’t exactly know before you get pregnant is that this is exactly what you will want and need when you are pregnant—someone who is as brilliant and skilled as she is caring to obsess about your health and well-being, and that of your baby, for you.”
— Kate M., Dallas, TX
“Dr. Cleopatra brings a stunning combination of research background, scientific training, academic accomplishments, and communication artistry together – and then offers it with a strength, joy, and gentleness that benefits all those who are around her. Her dedication to helping women and families changes lives – for the better. Anyone who knows Dr. Cleopatra and learns from her is fortunate indeed.”
— Dr. Meggin McIntosh, CEO, Emphasis on Excellence
“For me, having a family was a long, windy, and bumpy road. Then I found Dr. Cleopatra, and suddenly my path was clear. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy at my age and with my particular health circumstances, but suddenly I was no longer alone or isolated in my confusion, uncertainty, and shame. She loved and shepherded me through it all. She is the most fantastic, inspirational, brilliant sister guide you could ever have on your baby journey. Dr. Cleopatra, thank you for your very being and existence. You are changing the world one person at a time!”
— Andrea J., Los Angeles, CA
“I am 33 and have had three miscarriages over the past 2 years. I sought Dr. Cleopatra’s help so that I could avoid having to resort to IVF. I had no idea that our work together would help me with so many other things beyond my fertility. I have lost 30 pounds, rid myself of the allergies and sinus problems I had been suffering from for so long, my digestive system is actually working well for what feels like the first time in my life. And, to top it off, I have reprioritized and focused my career so that it serves the life I want to live as Dr. Cleopatra has taught me (rather than living my life to serve my career). I have never felt better physically, more calm and grounded emotionally, or more supported in my career path. I didn’t even realize how bad I was feeling until I experienced how good I could feel.”
— Beverly S., NYC
“Dr. Cleopatra is living proof that women can have it all: a family, a satisfying career and a deep sense of joy in daily living. She not only leads by example, but she’s dedicated to showing all of us how we can do this in our own lives, too. If you are a professional woman trying to figure out how you will balance work and family once your baby arrives, make Dr. Cleopatra your first stop.”
— Dr. Kerry Ann Rockquemore, President and CEO, National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity
“My nickname for Dr. Cleopatra is The Empowerer. Dr. Cleopatra is perhaps the single most empowering person I’ve ever met. She lifts others up, and helps them be their best selves. She helps you realize that your insecurities and issues are totally normal, and in fact even something to be proud of! In other words, Dr. Cleopatra makes you feel happy to be alive! She brings this joyous ability to her work, and empowers so many clients and families to realize their dreams.”
— Dr. Laurie Ruth Johnson, Professor and Author
The work I do with women, their partners, and their families at large is sensitive and private in nature and completely confidential. In addition to my promise and commitment to the confidentiality of my Clients, I regard my Clients’ lives, experiences, and stories as sacred and privileged spaces. Given this, the names attached to testimonials have, in most cases, been changed to protect the privacy of my Clients and their families. In the few cases where testimonials are accompanied by real names and/or photos, my Clients provided express written permission to do so. Testimonials by scientists, scholars, and doctors bear their real names and photos.
