Hypnotherapy and fertility

How can hypnotherapy help?

Starting a family is one of the biggest decisions that most people make and if it takes time to conceive or if there are complications, it can take over your life and leave you feeling angry, depressed, or alone.

The process of trying to conceive either naturally or using IVF can cause insurmountable stress and leave you feeling powerless and out of control.

The balance of mind and body is delicate and our emotions can influence our complicated hormonal system, which regulates ovulation, sperm production and pregnancy.

Studies have shown that stress is a major factor contributing to infertility. Prolonged periods of stress and anxiety activate the 'fight or flight' system, which in turn shuts down other systems in the body, including the reproductive one.

Hypno-psychotherapy can help you to stay calm and reduce stress and give you back a sense of control over your own life by restoring confidence in yourself and your body.

Hypnosis can help to explore and resolve unconscious blocks that may be affecting your ability to conceive. It can also assist you to maintain a healthy lifestyle and create a sense of balance between the mind and the body in order to help you to maximize your chances of conception and enjoy a healthy pregnancy.
