Hope Beyond Fibroids CEO & Founder, Nutritional Health Coach, Speaker and Fibroids Activist Gessie Thompson helps women eliminate their Fibroids, Infertility and more through a transformative holistic approach of spirit, mind, body healing—leveraging coaching, nutrition change, supplements, and medical Qi Gong. From stress management to diet, herbal supplements and more, her Hope Beyond Fibroids Elimination Program teaches lifestyle changes that have resulted in MRI-documented cases of women eliminating up to 50 fibroids without surgery and having their miracle babies after battling infertility for up to 12 years.

The bestselling author of Hope Beyond Fibroids: Stories of Miracle Babies and the Journey to Motherhood, travels the world inspiring, educating and empowering women to be Hopeful, Informed, Prayerful and Proactive (H.I.P.P.)™ about their health. Gessie personally battled fibroids for 14 years and underwent five fibroid surgeries—ending in a hysterectomy in March of 2015—and infertility for 10 years, undergoing five IVF cycles, a devastating miscarriage and more to bring her miracle baby Nia into the world.

ESSENCE published the Fibroids & Fertility Coach's profile titled "My Fertility Journey" in the 2014 Mother's Day issue and the accolades were overwhelming—with over 33,000 women responding to it on Facebook and over 650 women thanking her for sharing her story because it gave them HOPE that they too could overcome fibroids and have their miracle babies. It was then that she realized how much women suffer from fibroids silently and became impassioned to become a Fibroids Activist.

Within six months of the release of her book Hope Beyond Fibroids, at ESSENCE Festival—the country's "biggest live event"—in July of 2015, Gessie partnered with Aboriginal Medical Association Naturopathic Drs. Amsu Anpu and Amun Neb to co-found the groundbreaking Hope Beyond Fibroids Elimination Program to help women eliminate their Fibroids, Infertility and more through their proven naturopathic program without surgery.
