From everything you’ve been told since you became fertile as a teenager, conceiving a child should be easy. However, it has been known for some time now that many couples find it very difficult to conceive naturally even though there appears to be nothing medically ‘wrong’.

When this happens, you can put yourselves under considerable strain- feel guilty, inadequate or even a complete failure simply because the one thing you want more and more seems to get further from your reach. This can create acute stress for individuals and couples. This stress results in an unconscious response of not feeling safe and the human body isn’t programmed to conceive when it doesn’t feel safe.

How ironic that the one thing we want more than anything sometimes, is being stopped from happening because of how much we want it!

Managing stress can be the key to allowing our bodies to find their own balance so the body can do what it knows how to do – reproduce. Allowing nature to take its course is a wonderful thing, and hypnotherapy gives your mind and body the best chance of making this happen for you. We can also work to allow the unconscious mind to find ways to ‘heal’ the body, if it isn’t working quite as it should, so that it can work as well as possible to help you get what you want – and not a test tube in sight!

Assisted conception and IVF can also be particularly stressful , as couples can feel under enormous pressure for it to work due to the costs involved, or only having a certain number of eggs available, or even ‘time running out’. Being as calm and relaxed as possible can increase the chances of your treatments being successful. I can advise you on ways that can make that achievable. Obviously, I can’t guarantee your success, but I will do everything I possibly can to help you make it so.

What if you live too far away from me?

If you don’t live in an area convenient to come and see me, I can highly recommend the hypnosis products from The Fertile Mind website. It is run by a friend and colleague of mine, Russell Davies. He also happens to be a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and has first hand experience of fertility problems. Why not check out his website by clicking the link here. Russell will even send you a free sample, so that you can listen to what you’re buying before committing.
