There are many couples who have a hard time getting pregnant. Some therapies, like in-vitro fertilization, are complicated and expensive. Nowadays there are alternatives, such as acupuncture and hypnosis. While it may sound far-fetched, hypnotherapy can help couples get pregnant in a matter of months.
For most women over the age of 40, getting pregnant may not be as easily achieved. Medical doctors say having a baby after 40 might be difficult, yet, there are more and more women giving birth the natural way than ever before. A couple of hypnotherapy sessions, can speed and ease the process.
This makes sense, as the first benefit of hypnosis is relaxation. We certainly have all heard those stories about couples who stop “trying” to get pregnant, or who adopt, and suddenly find themselves expecting the unexpected. Unfortunately, relaxing isn’t as easy as it sounds – it’s like falling asleep. The harder you try, the tenser you become. Hypnosis is just a simple way of bypassing the worrying part of your mind, the conscious mind, and letting the rest of you get the rest you need.
Hypnosis Can Help Get You Pregnant
Research has shown that hypnosis doubles the success of IVF treatment. Researchers in Israel found that 28% of woman in the group that were hypnotized became pregnant compared to 14% of those who were not hypnotized.
This research study of 185 women was presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology conference in Berlin. The researchers aimed to discover whether hypnosis could make the embryo transfer stage of IVF more successful. During this stage, the embryo is transferred into the womb. However, if the womb is contracting, it can affect the chances of the transplant being a success. The research found that indeed hypnosis did seem to greatly increase chances of becoming pregnant.
How many times have you heard of women who tried for years to get pregnant and just when they let go of the idea or resign to not having a baby, they get pregnant?
Some even call it a miracle child. Well some children are truly miracles and yet others happen because the constant worry and stress is out, the body and mind are relaxed and guess what – the couple gets to enjoy sex for the pure pleasure of it, instead of being a baby machine.
We can help you eliminate the stress and teach yourself hypnosis so that you can relax and allow the natural course of your body do its beautiful work!
Stress and fertility
IVF fertility treatment tends to be a stressful time, but stress can have a blocking effect on fertility success. This is why a woman will often become pregnant at the very point they stop trying. The trying causes stress and prevents the very thing you are aiming to achieve.
Sleep is a natural process of the body but it’s when you stop trying to sleep that you are more likely to actually fall asleep. So it is with pregnancy.
Hypnotic suggestion and the workings of the body
Hypnosis infertility sessions will do more than just diminish stress and get you relaxed. Your unconscious mind can directly affect the workings of your body through hypnotic suggestion. This happens when people are able to heal more quickly after being hypnotized. It’s your unconscious mind that responds to the suggestions – this goes beyond the results of merely relaxing (as beneficial as these results are).
Changing negative thoughts are key
There’s an obsession with ‘Am I pregnant? Am I going to get pregnant? What cycle day am I on? What’s my basal body temp?’ It’s all women who want to get pregnant think about. It gets to a point that the pleasures of intimacy and getting pregnant become calculative and chore-like.
All that thinking can stress out a woman. If pregnancy does not happen right away, some women convince themselves that they can’t get pregnant. Stress reduction and change of old thought patterns. There is a definite link between her hormones released in the brain and decreasing a woman’s ability to release an egg.
There’s a 35 percent diagnosis of unexplained infertility, which means there’s no physical cause for it. These days more medical doctors believe in and sometimes encourage alternative therapies like hypnosis or acupuncture because they seem to take a lot of the stress out of baby-making. Through hypnosis we reprogram your mind. If the need arises, we then delve deeper into your subconscious mind and through hypnotherapy unveil any self-sabotaging patterns standing in your way to getting pregnant to full-term.
Then there’s the mind-body connection. When you learn to put your body in homeostasis – in balance – your reproductive system works more smoothly. Your subconscious mind controls your bodily functions including hormone production. One aspect of hypnotherapy helps you deal with all of your emotions, including those hidden parts of yourself that might have doubts or worries about parenthood. One theory about the increase in fertility when couples adopt is that it’s more than relaxation – the simple fact of being a parent overcomes those tiny insecurities that have interfered with the complex reproductive system.
