Fertile Body Method

As an accredited Fertile Body Method Practitioner (FBM), I specialise in supporting women and their partners through their fertility journey. FBM is a recognised program that uses specific hypnosis and mind/body approaches to address the mental, emotional and physical factors which may be affecting your fertility. Hypnotherapy can allow you to access a relaxed and receptive state that we can use to facilitate inner change, which can impact positively on your physical wellbeing and fertility.


How Can The Fertile Body Method Help?

The FBM can help enhance fertility by:

  • Reducing stress and increasing feelings of calm and relaxation
  • Restoring physical, mental and emotional balance and wellbeing
  • Balance can be restored through relaxation, positive cognitive changes, visualisation and changes to diet, exercise and lifestyle
  • Restoring hormonal balance, regulating the natural balance in the autonomic nervous system, regulating and restoring healthy immune system function
  • Creating balance in the body can be further enhanced by creating balance in thinking. Decreasing negative self talk and excessive worry will help restore emotional and physical balance and ensure that these changes are maintained.
  • Identifying and resolving issues which may be preventing conception (unconscious or conscious resistance).

Preparing the couple for conception by helping them:

  • to make necessary changes to lifestyle, diet, smoking, alcohol and exercise habits
  • to feel confident and ready for parenthood
  • to Improve intimacy and sexual relationship (for natural conception)
  • restore menstrual health, or sperm mobility and count
  • prepare for IVF or other fertility treatment

Providing support:

The FBM can help enhance fertility by:

  • Teaching self help tools that continue to enhance fertility
  • To maintain the changes they have made
  • Supporting the couple if they do conceive, to help carry the baby to full term
  • Supporting the couple if treatment fails
  • Supporting them to make decisions about fertility treatments and other options for parenthood

It can help by addressing and reducing the effects of infertility

People who have problems conceiving may experience a reduced sense of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and leave them feeling stressed, frustrated, angry, jealous, guilty, hopeless, anxious or depressed. It can affect their work, friendships, family and relationships.

The FBM can help to reduce the negative effects of infertility by

  • Restoring self esteem and self worth
  • Working through emotions e.g. anger, jealousy, guilt, stress, anxiety and depression
  • Building coping skills and developing inner resources
  • Ensuring their needs are being met
  • Resolving relationship problems (partner, family and friends)
  • Increasing sexual Intimacy and affection
  • Restoring trust in one's body
  • Reducing the negative effects of fertility treatment medication
  • Restoring the body to good health after medical treatments
  • Providing emotional support and an opportunity to talk openly
  • Processing any death and loss
  • Coming to terms with infertility
