Lynn Ward Hypnotherapy is Dedicated to your SUCCESS.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.
Stress and lack of confidence tend to feed “unexplained infertility”.
More and more women are living with stress, struggling with demanding jobs, financial insecurity and unhealthy lifestyles. Is it any wonder why conception doesn’t always occur immediately? The ability to deal with stress when you are trying to get pregnant is very important as stress and anxiety are understood to be a significant contributing factor in infertility. Some women experience irregular periods due to stress, whilst in men sperm count can be lowered. Additionally, stress may lead to habits which are unhealthy, with the result that you are less likely to be able to become pregnant. If you are suffering from stress, you may be less likely to eat healthily, and there are studies which suggest that being even slightly overweight (for men AND women) or underweight may effect your chances of pregnancy.
Perhaps stress and anxiety mean that you drink more alcohol or caffeine than is healthy, which in turn can lead to insomnia (as withdrawal from alcohol causes waking in the night, and caffeine can prevent you from falling asleep or reaching a deep level of sleep). In addition, some studies have linked drinking more than 3 cups of coffee a day to an increased risk of miscarriage. Widespread research links consumption of alcohol to a lowered chance of pregnancy. Perhaps stress is causing you to smoke or adding to the feeling that you cannot give up. Or you may even be doing everything you possibly can to keep healthy and look after yourself, but find that you cannot sleep because you are worrying about the fact that so far, despite taking charge of your fertility in every way you can, you haven’t yet become pregnant. Lack of sleep adversely affects the body generally, and can affect fertility. Many people who have problems with fertility find that their confidence and self esteem suffer. Hypnosis helps by enabling you to switch off from your fears and anxieties, allowing you to become relaxed, and teaching you techniques to do so wherever and whenever stress threatens to affect you. It enables you to switch off from thinking about something which is upsetting and difficult – and by doing so reduces the stress which is contributing to the problem.
Hormonal problems also sometimes contribute to conception issues. Many couples have lost faith in the natural process of conception and are turning to IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation).
With an average rate of less than 30 % success, couples feel even more stressed out when going through the process.
Some experts believe that this stress could be what is behind low success rate. Hypnosis is well recognised for its effectiveness in reducing stress and increasing confidence, the two major issues that pose the biggest threats to natural fertility.
Lynn Ward Hypnotherapy can help you MAXIMISE YOUR BODY’S POTENTIAL.
Through Deep Relaxation, Guided Visualization and Positive Suggestions, I will help you create and maintain a state of CALM and RELAXATION, eliminate any fears, minimise the side effects of drugs, restore hormonal balance and instill a sense of control over your body and life.
“Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”
Whether you have unexplained fertility and are still trying to get pregnant naturally, or whether you are receiving fertility treatment, hypnotherapy can help you to remain focused, positive and confident. In addition to ways of coping with stress, you may wish to use guided imagery and visualisation to help you prepare for IVF treatment and pregnancy. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way of helping you to prepare mentally for fertility treatment by use of visualisation and relaxation techniques. You will also be encouraged during hypnotherapy to focus on those areas of your life which already give you happiness and satisfaction, further helping you to relax, to relieve stress, increasing the chances of a successful outcome.
This positive outlook on your life, and the perspective this gives you, helps you to deal more easily with the emotional and physical challenges of IVF. You will be taught self hypnosis so that you can recreate – whenever and wherever you want – the fantastic state of relaxation you achieve in your hypnotherapy sessions. You will be given a self hypnosis CD to help with this.
