Fertility Consultation & Counseling
*Fertility Consultation and Counseling can involve an individual or a couple, who may or may not be working with other fertility specialists.  Sessions are tailored to your specific needs and you may have a session alone or with your birthing companion.  Ask about a complimentary information/assessment session.  
*Stress and lifestyle can reduce your chances for conception - pressures to become pregnant, busy/fast-paced lives, other’s ideas of pregnancy and family, smoking, etc.  When we experience stress our bodies produce cortisol which can inhibit the implantation of a fertilized ovum, delay ovulation and reduce the number and mobility of sperm.
*Find out hypnosis & hypnotherapy can help you release & manage your stress, and quit smoking (including smoking cessation in preparation for pregnancy or if you want to quit while pregnant).

*The Royal Commission for New Reproductive Technology found that a quarter of a million couples in Canada are affected by infertility – defined as an inability to conceive after 12 months. [source: Reproductive Infertility: Prevalence, Causes, Trends and Treatments, January 2001]
*According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, 6.1 million American women and their partners experience difficulties in conceiving a child.  
*Worldwide it is estimated that 10 to 15% of couples of childbearing age experience infertility.
*Many of these families will turn to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).  Studies have shown that including hypnotherapy in their treatment can double their success rate.
*The Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association reported in 1999 that 42% of women were able to conceive within six months of being taught mind/body relaxation techniques.  Additionally, these women were able to effectively decrease their levels of stress, anxiety and depression.  Other studies have been conducted, all with similar results.
