Hypnotherapy for Natural Fertility & IVF, Wilmslow
Stress and anxiety are known to affect fertility and trying to conceive can be stress inducing – waiting for a positive result each month can sometimes negatively affect us – and so stress and anxiety levels build, which interferes with the body’s ability to conceive.
And so a negative cycle is born.
When humans are anxious and in ‘fight or flight’ mode the reproductive system is impaired as the body believes that it is saving your life from a threat and so does not want to create a new life under those conditions.
Hypnotherapy helps by helping you to switch off from your fears and anxieties, teaching you techniques to relax wherever and whenever stress threatens to affect you. It helps you to relieve the pressure you put on yourself through ‘trying’ to conceive and to switch off and let go of any negative thoughts or feelings.
These hypnotherapy techniques are appropriate whether you are attempting to conceive naturally or through IVF.
Research has shown that hypnotherapy is a effective for both natural conception or fertility and IVF.
A study published in Fertility And Sterility showed 55% of the previously infertile women who used mind/body techniques conceived, compared with 20% of the control group who didn’t use these techniques.
An Israeli study of 185 women showed that the success rate of IVF treatments doubled from 14% to 28% when the subjects underwent hypnosis during implantation.
