Hypnosis and Fertility

We have talked about using yoga and acupuncture as part of our ttc journey, but here is another option……………………. :)

I was talking with a friend who told me that she believes that she got pregnant because of hypnosis. So, I decided to do some research on the topic and see if it had any validity. What I found is that there are hypnotherapists that as part of their practice, focus on women who are wanting to be pregnant.

The premise is that women who are depressed, stressed, fearful or anxious often struggle when trying to conceive. So anything we can do to help us relax, adds to the chances of becoming pregnant.

One aspect of the therapy is changing negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive thoughts and beliefs that are necessary for conception. The second part is that the hypnotherapist helps women to be calm during ovulation, become emotionally prepared to take care of a baby and to be more intuitive in terms of when their body is most fertile.

At the latest European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Conference, a study was presented on the topic of hypnosis and fertility. Their findings were that in a group of 185 women, 28% of the woman who had taken part in hypnosis became pregnant, whereas only 14% of those did who did not use hypnosis as part of their ttc plan had the same positive outcome.

They believe it is because the endocrine system, which is in control of our hormones, is greatly impacted by our thoughts and emotions. So, if we are struggling emotionally, we are probably also struggling to become pregnant.
