Uncertainty, anxiety, the roller coaster of emotions…
When you’ve been facing the heartache of infertility, IVF & other assisted treatments can feel like a very precious opportunity.
Often though, by the time you get to this point, you may already feel worn down by your fertility struggles. And you may be trying to cope with the emotional side-effects of months or even years of failure.
Or perhaps if you’ve experienced failed IVF before, the thought of returning to treatment feels daunting, even overwhelming.
Do You Feel Ready For Your Fertility treatment? Many of my clients would probably say no when they first get in touch about IVF Mindset Coaching..
# It’s on my mind all the time & I easily spiral into negative thinking. I can disappear down rabbit holes for hours, even days… and then there’s google (aargh!)
# I’m feeling fearful & very negative, but what’s the point of going into treatment if I’m convinced it won’t work?
# I feel like I walk a tightrope between hope & despair. I’m really afraid to feel hopeful but without hope all the effort can feel pointless.
# It feels like the triggers are everywhere, & when I’m not trying to handle them I’m anxiously waiting for the next one… it feels like where ever I look there’s a pregnancy announcement, baby shower or news about a new born…
I’m here to show you that navigating fertility treatment can FEEL very different to this. You absolutely can feel calmer, resilient & more hopeful about the future. And you don’t need to become superhuman or a different person to do it. You just need the right support.
Handling fertility treatment is Hard…
But it might feel difficult to ask for help & you might not even be sure what to ask for. Maybe you’ve tried to go it alone so far, or have struggled through with the help of your family & friends, (who may or may not get it) & your partner, (whose probably finding it hard too).
You’ve probably tried to think positive. And, as a form of self-protection, you’ve also probably told yourself it will never happen, ..and then worried that you’re getting in your own way. You’ve perhaps tried to get support from online forums, support groups & social media.. with mixed success. And you might have tried self-care, managed it for a while then slipped back into old, unhelpful coping mechanisms to get you through.
So, what if there was a different way?
…where you had expert, caring support & no longer had to muddle through alone.. where you had space to talk & be seen & truly heard.. & where you had access to a wealth of resources & proven strategies plus mentoring on how to use them for maximum benefit.
I’m here & have over a decade of experience in this space. I’ve supported hundreds of people through the emotional turmoil of infertility & if you want to explore how we might work together, lets talk!
Research is beginning to show the benefits of Mind-Body programs for fertility treatment outcomes.
A researcher looked at the results of one significant study and said “We know a mind-body program helps [people] feel better mentally and physically, and now we also know it can lead to increased pregnancy rates with IVF.”4
