Fertility

As a Certified Fertility Consultant, I am honored to join parents on their journey to conception. I’m specifically trained and certified to offer hypnotherapeutic support to enhance fertility for those pursuing natural conception and those undergoing ART/IVF or other medical procedures.

This work guides couples or single women to make the most of  their mind-body connection, discovering and addressing issues unique to each person. Our work together might typically focus on creating a hospitable climate in the body, and letting go of any emotional blocks to conception.  If you’ve faced fertility challenges, it would be my privilege hear your story so far, and talk over how hypnotherapy can bring you closer to your dream of conceiving and birthing a child.

 

Studies conducted by Alice Dormar Ph.D., director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Behavioral Medicine Program for Infertility in Boston, showed the efficacy of mind/body techniques in removing unresolved issues around pregnancy:

 

In 1999, 42% of 132 infertile women participating in the mind/body program conceived within 6 months of completing it (Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association).

 

A second study, published in 2000 in the journal Fertility and Sterility, showed that 55% of infertile women conceived, compared to 20% of the control group who used no mind/body techniques.

 

A 2004 Israeli study conducted by Prof. Eliahu Levitas showed that hypnosis can double the success rate of IVF. His findings were presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Conference in 2004.
