As explained elsewhere on this website, in the 1970's I worked in one of the first sub-fertility clinics in the country, in Kings College Hospital obstetrics and gynaecology department. This interest in the latest technologies and approaches has been a vital component of my clinical work.
If, sadly, you are struggling to attain pregnancy ~ my knowledge of anatomy, hormones, latest developments in approach and methods of investigation, etc. provide a sound basis for a therapeutic approach to connecting to a different state of being. There can be no promises, but we allow the space for shift of perspective that may assist transition to motherhood. There is an optimum time for booking your first appointment, see below.
Hypnosis may assist during the long process of IVF, there can seem to be so many challenges on the journey to parenthood, and so many aspects to consider. Be assured that I have made sub-fertility a particular interest of mine having witnessed the potential for hypnosis to work in almost magical ways. However, there can never be promises, and a change of mindset can assist with acceptance.
First, I often choose to work with a Reflexology session with light hypnosis.
I have trained in the Fertile Body and Easibirthing ® methods, but sub-fertility is so complex it is good to get to know you, to fully appreciate the next steps to take.
Timing of visits for sub-fertility
If choosing just hypnotherapy to explore possible reasons for sub fertility, book a session for any time in your cycle.
If choosing Hypnotherapy to assist with the mind-body connection at the time of egg transfer, sessions will be timed to assist you along this journey.
If booking a reflexology session, with an effortless transition into hypnosis, book for the days following the cessation of the menstrual period. At this time I can access the reflexes in what should be a relatively dormant phase of the cycle, pressing deeply on the pituitary, ovary, and uterus reflexes for example, with maximum effect. As the cycle progresses treatment of the relevant points becomes more subtle, but I know by then how they respond, etc.
Pregnancy and Childbirth
Reflexology is terrific throughout pregnancy, the baby is often very active and enjoys the session too.
Many prefer to book sessions once a month after the first few weeks gestation. Once a month, with each session targeting different needs through the pregnancy, then fortnightly as the birth approaches.
Overdue pregnancies can be assisted with the use of powerful reflexes, avoided until the threat of induction by midwives.
Hypnotic suggestion during maternity reflexology sessions or as an addition while deeply relaxed, can offer the optimum potential for a relaxed and enjoyable birth experience.
