Getting pregnant is not always easy. Challenges with conception and pregnancy can arise when the mind and/or body have temporarily lost their natural state of balance and harmony.
Stress, previous distress (associated with termination, miscarriage, birth, or other issues), fear about how the baby will impact your relationship or career, financial concerns, unresolved guilt or grief, or the uncertainty about the affects of pregnancy and birth could be preventing you from successfully conceiving a baby.
Hypnotherapy can enhance fertility and assist you to:
reduce stress and increase feelings of calm and relaxation
identify and transform issues that may be impeding conception
restore physical, emotional and mental balance and well-being
increase self-esteem, confidence and self-worth
make healthy lifestyle changes that support conception
prepare for IVF, IUI or other medical procedures
create a healthy, loving, welcoming state wherein baby can flourish
Research has shown that women using hypnosis to support conception have a much higher success rate.
A study conducted in 2004 by Eliahu Levitas at Soroka Hospital in Isreal, demonstrated the benefit of using hypnosis in conjunction with IVF treatment. Women who used hypnosis in the study doubled the success rate of IVF treatment and became pregnant.
Dr. Alice Domar, PhD, director of the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health at Boston IVF, has conducted ground-breaking research on the efficacy of mind/body techniques in reducing stress associated with fertility treatment. A study conducted in 2009 revealed a pregnancy rate of 52 percent among women who participated in a stress management program as compared to a 20 percent pregnancy rate for women who did not participate in the stress management program.
