What is Hypno-Fertility?

Hypno-Fertility is a safe, non-invasive, effective and affordable technique that can enhance your fertility. It works by eliminating the main culprits of “unexplained infertility” which is stress and lack of confidence.

Researches have found that stress hormones do not contribute to an environment conducive for pregnancy. Dr Mark Bush of Colorado’s Conceptions Reproductive Centre says, “There is a definite link between hormones released in the brain and decreasing a woman’s ability to release an egg.”

Many women are experiencing difficulty conceiving due to psychobiological issues. This means that mental processes and behaviours are creating blocks that cause infertility. Often the perceived urgency of getting pregnant or the fear that you may not succeed creates a downward spiral of stress and worry.

Sometimes it can be unresolved past issues, such as abortion, miscarriage, fear of imitating someone else’s parenting mistakes, sexual abuse or trauma, sudden death or injury to a loved one, abusive relationships or a history of mental or physical handicaps.

Being told you are unable to conceive can often leave an imprint on your subconscious. When suggestions are presented by someone perceived to be in authority such as doctor, or when they are delivered with enough emotion or imagery, your subconscious mind can be triggered into believing it.

Ultimately these destructive thought patterns are sabotaging your efforts to fall pregnant.

How Does Hypno-Fertility Assist Unexplained Infertility?

“Unexplained infertility” actually means there is no physiological reason for a woman not to become pregnant. Hypnosis is one of the most powerful processes available for conquering “unexplained infertility.” – Lynsi Eastman, founder of the Hypnofertility Foundation.

If you are experiencing this phenomena, you are in the right place. The Hypno-Fertility program is totally personal and adapted to your unique needs. We can assist you in removing old conditioning that no longer serves you and is holding you back from achieving your dreams. We can help you to transform negative habits and thought patterns that damage the fragile environment that is needed to conceive into a powerful, constructive force to achieve your pregnancy.

Hypnotherapy is safe, requires no drugs or expensive equipment and it can be mixed with almost any medical procedure with impressive results, often making any such procedure work much better. Natural fertility has come as a pleasant surprise for our clients – even for those where assisted methods have failed.

Each year millions of dollars are spent to overcome infertility. Vast amounts of cash and emotion are spent in pursuit of pregnancies that never happen. Hypnotherapy represents a safe and powerful way of increasing fertility.

Can You Help Me if I am Already Undergoing IVF/Acupuncture Medical Procedures?

Yes, our Hypno-Fertility program can be used in conjuction with almost any medical procedure with impressive results – often making any such procedure work much better. Many doctors will refer their patients to a hypnotherapist to complement the IVF process. It is important to let your therapist know about all medications and interventions before any treatment commences.

If I get Pregnant Before the End of the Three Cycles, What Should I Do?

This often happens and most clients continue with Hypnotherapy through their pregnancy. Basically we meet your needs and support you through the exciting journey of becoming a Mum.

We offer Hypno-Birthing sessions that are tailor made to suit your unique needs. The Hypno-Birthing program empowers you to allow your body to have a natural vaginal birth. We also deal with other birthing scenarios including: mandatory c-sections, emergency c sections, multiple births, high risk pregnancy, nausea and vomiting, breech presentation, premature labour, fear surrounding pregnancy and birth, lactation, bonding, post-partum depression – and much more.

What About My Partner?

Recent studies have revealed that sperm count is significantly reduced with prolonged stress. So naturally, releasing stress in both partners is the key.

Does Hypno-Fertility Really Work? What are the Statistics?

No-one in the world can guarantee that you will definitely become pregnant. However, documented studies show remarkable evidence that hypnosis can dramatically improve your fertility, pregnancy, birth and recovery. Growing acceptance of hypnotherapy as a valid form of treatment for infertility has resulted in an increase of large-scale studies and research into the phenomenon. Please look at the following articles for confirmation.

The Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association and Fertility and Sterility studies have indicated that “infertile” women participating in mind/body therapy experienced a 42 – 55% conception rate as compared to a 20% rate in the control group who used no mind/body techniques.

Women with a history of depressive symptoms were twice as likely to suffer subsequent infertility. (Psychosomatic Medicine, 1995 vol.57) Within 6 months of receiving hypnotherapy treatment, women with depression showed a 60% viable pregnancy rate as compared to just 24% in women who underwent no mind/body treatment. (Journal of American Medical Women’s Association, 199 vol.54)

Dr Alfred A. Barrios found hypnotherapy produced a 93% success rate in curing psychoneurotic patients (those with emotional or mental disorders) after only 6 sessions.

Dr. Christine Northrup, Obstetrics & Gynecology specialist, University of Vermont, talks about the importance of a healthy mind as well as a healthy body, and how it can impact fertility, in her book Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom. Northrup wrote:”Regardless of what you’ve been told about your fertility you need to know that your ability to conceive is profoundly influenced by the complex interaction among psychosocial, psychological and emotional factors; and that you can consciously work with this to enhance your ability to have a baby.”

Dr Elizabeth Muir, a clinical psychologist specializing in treating infertility has researched how hypnotherapy affects the hypnothalamus gland (a tiny region of the brain that controls the flow of hormones in the body). Dr Muir found this gland was sensitive to stress which in turn allowed the hypothalamus gland to trigger the hormone production that was conducive to successful reproduction. The results of Muir’s study showed that 45% of the women with unexplained infertility were able to conceive when hypnotherapy was added to their fertility program. Muir says, “Hypnotherapy works on the premise that the conscious and subconscious minds may be at odds with each other. I believe that while a women might consciously want a baby, her subconscious may be stopping her from getting pregnant. Most women I see have psychosomatic infertility related to conflicts or unresolved issues about having a baby.”

2. Hypno-Birthing/Birth by Hypnosis

HYPNO-BIRTHING/Birth by Hypnosis is geared to your individual needs to empower you to have a wonderful child birth. With Hypno-Birthing you will experience a better birthing experience and a faster, more comfortable recovery. You will also transition easier from pregnancy to motherhood and experience enhanced bonding and breast feeding. Basically we offer a comprehensive program that is tailor made to suit your unique needs. We prepare you to use hypnosis for all your birthing needs.

When you receive a positive pregnancy result it is the beginning of a very special time for you as well as your partner. Hypno-Birthing helps prepare for this momentous occasion. From Bonding with your baby in utero, to understanding how your body works naturally to birth the baby, to gain confidence in the understanding of the “Fear-Tension-Pain” syndrome that allows women to birth naturally with little discomfort. Fear causes tension – which in turn causes pain – therefore fear must be eliminated.

For many of you it has been a long journey to get pregnant and some of you are frequently left emotionally exhausted. Receiving a positive pregnancy test result does not magically erase the trauma you have been through. We help prepare you for whatever birth you choose whether it is a natural birth or a medically assisted c-section.

Hypno-Birthing looks at your individual needs. It is an individual program to address the potential issues that you will face in your birthing. We teach you self hypnosis and how to utilize hypnosis to complement all potential birth scenarios. We focus on the birth that you would choose and empower you to achieve it through hypnosis whether you choose a natural birth or a C-section. We focus on bonding between the baby, mother, dad/partner and family.

We address the anxiety and fear surrounding pregnancy and birth including information of medically assisted births like mandatory C-sections, emergency c-sections, multiple births and high risk pregnancy. We can also assist with nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (NVP), turning a breech presentation, pre-mature labour and the medical need to induce labour. Pivotal to the program is to reduce anxiety and fear surrounding the pregnancy and birth. We also cover lactation, bonding and postpartum depression.

Hypnotherapists have been using hypnosis to assist in childbirth for decades by employing self hypnosis techniques, guided imagery and visualization over the last 20 years. Hypnosis can be used to potentiate medication and anaesthesia to counter the fight or flight response and to effectively tap into the the body’s inherent birthing abilities. The philosophy draws heavily on the writings of “The Father of Natural Childbirth” Dr Grantly Dick-Reid (1890-1959) and in particular where he witnessed a painless childbirth. The reply he received when he asked the new mother why she did not require any pain relief was to have a profound effect upon him. “It didn’t hurt. It wasn’t meant to, was it Doctor?” After witnessing several other similar births, he developed and presented his theory of a “Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrom” in the early 1920’s.
