The Fertile Body Method

The Fertile Body Method combines personal coaching, hypnosis and other mind-body approaches to provide support for couples and individuals who are struggling with the effects of infertility

Are You Struggling To Conceive?

Is There No Apparent Cause?

Do you Feel Helpless?

The Fertile Body Method is an approach that helps couples who are struggling with infertility.

Tried everything?
Spent lots of money?
Undergone awful treatments?

And what have you been rewarded with?
Disappointment……….. Despair………… Depression………………

Perhaps it’s time to try something different. Something completely natural.

The Fertile Body Method combines personal coaching, hypnosis and other mind-body approaches to provide support for couples and individuals who are struggling with the effects of infertility.  It also addresses the underlying factors that impact fertility and helps to reduce the negative effects of infertility that you live with every day! It utilizes physical, mental and emotional interventions to produce positive results for many people and make fertility problems easier to deal with.

The role of the mind and the emotions in fertility is a vital one that is often overlooked. Hypnosis is one of the most effective tools for helping the mind to support the body to conceive and give birth, as well as to help you cope better with the experience of infertility. 

How fertility issues impact on a couple 

  • Feelings of inadequacy
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Can cause relationship issues blame/resentment
  • Negatively affect their sex life
  • Fear of debt /stress of assisted reproductive technologies (IVF etc.) 

How stress affects reproduction  

  • Often has an adverse effect on reproductive hormones (especially FSH and LH)
  • Engages the sympathetic nervous system which can result in insufficient blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
  • Adrenalin inhibits production of progesterone which is essential for building and maintaining the lining of the uterus
  • Prolactin inhibits both a woman and man’s fertility by decreasing oestrogen and testosterone

There is usually no single cause for fertility problems therefore an integrated approach using a combination of treatments is far more likely to give positive results.

Infertility Treatments Options

IUI/Clomid - Success rate -  3 - 6%. 

IVF/ICSI    - Success rate  - 20 - 25% 

Hypnosis/mind-body approaches  - success rate 42 - 65%

The Fertile Body Method programme is aimed at helping couples to deal with the effects of fertility problems and to identify and make changes that can positively impact on their fertility. It acknowledges the importance of working together with other specialists to create well co-ordinated combinations of treatments.  The success rates of medical treatments such as IVF can be increased when combined with hypnosis.

The programme comprises six key stages:-

Outcome – The programme is tailored to suit your unique circumstances. In the first stage we explore your aims and goals for the sessions. This means identifying what needs to change to improve your chances of becoming pregnant.   Setting clear goals will help you know what you are working towards and to determine the best possible focus for the sessions.  This will give you a sense of control.

Balance – address your current mental, emotional and physical state by restoring balance to internal and external factors that effect overall wellbeing; this may be addressing negative self-talk, stress levels, diet, lifestyle etc. The main aims of this stage are to stabilize you, build ego strength, develop your inner resources and increase your feelings of wellbeing.

  • Maybe your lifestyle and environment needs to be improved.
  • Or you need help to feel calmer, stronger and more able to cope.
  • There are also other factors that inhibit fertility that may need to be addressed – stress, perfectionism, hormone imbalance, overweight, smoking, diet.

Resolve When you are feeling an increased sense of wellbeing and balance, we will work through any unresolved issues that may be preventing you from becoming a Mother. Hypnosis is a very powerful and effective tool for identifying and resolving experiences which may be holding you back. These could be:-

  • fears about pregnancy, birth, parenthood
  • even unresolved issues from childhood
  • sexual relationship issues
  • terminations, stillbirths, miscarriages
  • childhood abuse.

Enhance – Working specifically with the conscious and unconscious mind to enhance fertility using visualization, guided imagery and mental rehearsal.Visualization is a simple and powerful way to enhance fertility.  It helps prepare you mentally for the birth, parenthood, embryo transfer etc.
Relaxation techniques and visualisation help increase the effectiveness of treatments such as IVF. 

You will be guided through visualizations that are specifically created to enhance your fertility. You will be taught how to do this on your own at home.

Prepare – for pregnancy, birth or parenthood. Also includes mental, emotional and physical preparation for medical treatments such as IVF. Preparation is an important factor which helps you feel calmer and more confident. Preparing yourself mentally, emotionally and physically for medical treatment, gives you a sense of control.

Support – to help you to maintain the changes you have made in your life. Also supporting you whilst awaiting test results and any disappointments. I am there for you as you embark and travel on your journey – if you become pregnant, if your treatment fails, if you miscarry. Or if need to come to terms with not having children.
