IVF: Hopes, Fears and Hospital Appointments helped by Hypnotherapy Wednesday 3 September 2008 PDF Print Today in the UK, around 1 baby in every 80 is born as a result of IVF treatment.* With one in seven couples having difficulty conceiving, it’s increasingly becoming a part of the lives of thousands throughout the UK. 2001 to 2005 alone showed a 20% increase in the number of cycles taking place across the country. Hundreds of mums have turned to Natal Hypnotherapy|http://www.natalhypnotherapy.co.uk to support them through the process – and are keen to tell others about their IVF experience. IVF is a subject close to many peoples’ hearts – but as a procedure, it’s not easy. It’s an expensive, invasive, and unpleasant ordeal, which even for women under 35 years old has only a 29% success rate - a figure which drops off sharply beyond that age. IVF is an emotional rollercoaster of hopes, fears, and hospital appointments - but for many women, it’s the only way to fulfil their dreams of having their own baby, and years of trying and multiple IVF cycles are worth it for the possibility of what could be. Over the past three years, Natal Hypnotherapy™|www.natalhypnotherapy.co.uk has helped hundreds of women through IVF with its IVF Companion CD. Women using the audio relaxation CD learn self-hypnosis techniques to instil them with positivity, calm, belief and confidence in their body - a confidence often knocked by years of trying to conceive and difficult, disheartening medical examinations. The IVF Companion helps women to cope with the various medical procedures and treatments of the IVF process, and what’s more, have a real practical effect - in our latest survey of 68 users, 46% became pregnant - that’s 17% above even the highest national success rate. Here’s a taster of some of the stories we’ve had this month alone... “The CDs really helped me to focus on my treatment, to remain calm and positive, and to be confident. Once I did get pregnant, I was in complete shock for about four months!” Lisa “I truly believe that these CDs helped to get me in the right frame of mind (and out of grieving) to be able to visualise and welcome a new little soul into our lives. And what a joy she is!” Kara “The CDs were a huge help in relaxing me and making me feel more in control during the process. I became pregnant at the third attempt and have now given birth to a lovely little girl.” Karen “I used the hypnotherapy CDs. I was a lot more positive and felt so sure it was going to work – IT DID! I now have a gorgeous 11 week old tucked up in her bed fast asleep as we speak.” Charlotte For the full stories and contact details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org * All figures are from HFEA, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.
