Hypnotherapy for Fertility

The total fertility rate (TFR) for England and Wales decreased from 1.70 children per woman in 2018 to 1.65 children per woman in 2019.*

If you’re receiving fertility treatment or perhaps just starting to investigate why you and a partner are struggling to conceive, you’ll know just how distressing and traumatic it can be.

The impact of not being able to create the small life you long for can be extensive and goes far beyond the biological and physiological questions and concerns you’ll have. There’s also the emotional and mental anguish of coming to terms with infertility.

Many people experience anger and guilt towards partners, family or friends, stress in trying to juggle a demanding job with home life whilst managing the rigid constraints of fertility tests and treatment and, for some, the anxiety that comes from wanting to hide their fertility problems from others.

Although fertility is usually perceived as a purely medical issue the mind and body are intrinsically linked and enough anecdotal material exists to suggest that psychological issues are, in some cases, a contributing factor to fertility issues.

If you have been diagnosed with medical infertility then it’s vital that you continue to follow the advice of, and treatment recommended by, your medical practitioner. However, if no medical reason has been diagnosed for your fertility issue then the obstacles may be psychological rather than physical. In both cases hypnotherapy will support a couple – making treatment easier, with greater chance of success and creating the optimum environment for natural conception too.

The subconscious mind can play a vital role in either assisting or resisting conception and because the subconscious mind doesn’t understand or work to linear time, it can take a while for it to synchronise with your psychological or emotional state.

For example, many women spend much of their younger lives actively trying not to get pregnant. When that changes, and pregnancy becomes a goal, the subconscious mind, for so long conditioned to avoidance, can need time to play catch-up.

But there are often also additional subconscious conflicts that need to be resolved before conceiving, which is why our Hypnotherapy for Fertility sessions are so beneficial – especially as it’s estimated that up to 17% of couples will suffer from psychogenic infertility.
