Our mental, emotional and spiritual needs are the unseen side of fertility, and are too often overlooked yet all play such a significant role in our ability to conceive naturally or with fertility treatments.
Research has shown that women who have high levels of emotional distress before undergoing IVF are less likely to get pregnant (Domar D.A.,2002, p.24).
Infertility really causes a great deal of stress from, the barrage of thoughts “why does everyone else find getting pregnant so easy” What’s wrong with me”, “Am I too old”.
To the nerve wracking treatments, keeping up appearances at work, with friends and sometimes family who have no idea what you are going through. Juggling appointments, dealing with the grief of unsuccessful IVF cycles, feeling angry, overwhelmed and often depressed.
Every stressful or worrisome thought has an emotional counterpart that creates biochemical changes in the body, disrupting our natural healthy bodily functions and negatively impacting fertility in both men and women.
The study of hypnotherapy showed that Hypnosis effectively doubled the success of IVF treatments”. (Levitas, 2006)
Hypnotherapy is particularly successful in the area of fertility because it allows you to not only positively affect your current thoughts, feelings and physiology, you’ll access and release unconscious issues (that we are often unaware of) that have impeded upon your fertility.
When you combine modern science with Mind Body Hypnotherapy methods, you get the best of both worlds.
This means you can...
- Turn off the stress response & feel more at ease.
- Regulate hormones.
- Improve Egg quality and ovarian function.
- Increase sperm quality and quantity.

- Improve nutrient supply to your endometrial lining.
- Allow uterine muscles to relax (perfect for ET).
- Enhance effectiveness of fertility medications.

- Access & clear subconscious issues, affecting your fertility.
And double your chances of success!
Hypnotherapy will enhance the effectiveness of each phase of your IVF cycle, creating the most optimal fertile state for receiving, maintaining and nourishing a pregnancy to full term.
If you're undergoing IVF soon, have already started treatment or you know someone else who is, Hypnotherapy is the best way to prepare for the cycle or next phase of treatment.
