The desire to have your own baby can be all consuming so when it doesn’t happen as quickly as planned many couples opt for invasive procedures without addressing the underlying reasons for infertility in the first place. There is a tendency into wanting what we want when we want it so rather than exploring alternative options many couples rush into treatment. Bamboozled by statistics that show declining fertility with age, there is a fear that if they don’t do something right now, it might never happen and that the baby they so long for will never arrive.
The patriarchal culture, following the current medical model seeks to regulate and control the body. This is no different when it comes to reproduction. Too often the IVF route is being prompted as the most viable option when a couple present with fertility problems. Most people who undergo IVF have no clear idea of why they need it as they embark on this expensive procedure. It can cost anywhere from 5000 to 20, 000 euros, depending on the number of attempts the woman has to undergo to get pregnant. While medical interventions offer much needed hope, studies show that they also add to the grief and stress that couples already experience from infertility. These interventions do nothing to address the underlying health reasons of infertility. Some women do not respond well to IVF and the percentage success rates depends on the mother’s age and whether or not, she is using donor eggs.
How I work
Some women get pregnant the first time they try. Others need to take an initial detour as their body invites them to transform. Fertility cannot ever be seen in isolation as it is an extension of our health. Infertility is a wake -up call to heal ourselves and come home to ourselves, before we embark on the sacred journey of parenthood.
I go on a journey of discovery with my clients to uncover the underlying physical, mental and emotional reasons that are preventing conception. I work in 4-6 month packages where we have a weekly online consultation and email support. These weekly sessions hold you accountable to your journey and support your engagement with the process.
As a Nutritionist, I use diet and supplements to optimise your energy levels. I use foods and supplements to address deficiencies/excess while concentrating on boosting your fertility. I address adrenal health, methylation pathways and thyroid function.
As an Occupational Therapist, I address the necessary lifestyle changes that help manage and protect your energy. I use relaxation techniques to reduce stress hormones that compromise pregnancy hormones. I introduce emotional release tools to dissolve negative emotions such as fear to put you into the best possible heart space.
The changes we make together are implemented easily into your life on a weekly basis. It is my privilege to facilitate this journey and to turn infertility into lessons on fertility that take you closer to your goal of becoming a parent.
