The Fertile Mind: your thinking & your fertility

Surviving the Two Week Wait

August 8, 2022

I am taking some time off in August so this is a show from the archive: Whether you are having IVF/ICSI/donor treatment or trying naturally, the dreaded 2WW is always the hardest part of the process. Any insecurity in our mind hates the unknown. Another part of our mind doesn’t like the idea of us being disappointed, let alone devastated, so doesn’t want you to get your hopes up. These fears lead to your mind coming up with all the ‘evidence’ as to why you won't be successful or why you shouldn’t get your hopes up. The truth is, it’s unknown. Nothing can predict the outcome, not even your thinking, no matter how plausible it may be. In this episode a share a three-step approach to help you survive and even thrive in the 2WW

About the Show:

I help women and couples remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant. Based on my and my wife’s 10 year fertility journey and the work of my clients I believe too many couples have IVF unnecessarily and that the success rate of IVF is unnecessarily low. We can see how much our mind and emotions played a part in our fertility journey and when we found a place of peace without giving up that’s when the magic happened - we conceived naturally against all odds. I help me clients do the same - remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant naturally or getting the successful IVF outcome they so want.

When I ask women what having a baby will give them they usually say a sense of completeness, love and purpose. It’s our fear of not having these things, a fear of not being enough, worthy that tends to be behind our fear of not having a baby. These limiting beliefs have usually been around since an early age and infertility shines a spotlight on them. Many of my clients have strived for success in their life whether career or other things. That approach doesn’t work for fertility. In fact it puts tension in the body which decreases their chances of success.

The podcast is short dose of insight, giving women and couples new perspectives that allows them to see their fertility from the ‘inside-out’. To see help them let go of their insecure thoughts and feelings and connect to their innate wellbeing that knows they are enough and OK whatever happens. This moves having a baby from being a ’need’ to to a desire. It takes the pressure of the process and their mind and body relax into it’s natural flow state. Stress can impact the delicate balance of hormones required for a successful pregnancy.
