Holistic Fertility Therapy: is a mind/body approach that works to dismantle emotional barriers, unhelpful beliefs and excessive stress, all of which can adversely affect fertility. When stressed, our bodies produce hormones which can delay ovulation, inhibit the implantation of a fertilised egg and reduce the number and motility of sperm. Worldwide about 10 to 15% of couples experience infertility, with many turning to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Including mind/body approaches in their treatment has been shown to double their success rate. Find out how mind/body medicine can help you to release your stress and enhance your likelihood of conception.
Support for Midwives: opportunity to debrief, stress reduction, confidence building, a safe space to unburden.
