Home » Fertility Resources » Enhance your Chance to Conceive – The Mind Body Program for Fertility

You have probably been told to “relax and it will happen,” and you have been trying to relax but it’s not happening! Managing so many things – juggling appointments, medications, cycles, diet, exercise, partner, sex, not to mention work and other parts of ‘normal’ life, while trying to conceive – how can you relax?

Well there is support and it is easier than you think.

Thanks to COVID restrictions and telehealth, The MindBody Program for Fertility is now an 8-week, 1:1 online program that can be tailored to your individual needs at a time that suits your lifestyle.

Designed specifically for women trying to conceive, the MindBody Program for Fertility teaches women cognitive restructuring to cope with runaway and distressing thoughts; stress management to cope with anxiety, fear and anger; mindfulness to elicit the relaxation response and to stay present; communication with partners, family, friends and work colleagues, and addresses lifestyle issues of nutrition and exercise.

We know that the number one reason women drop out of treatment is related to stress. Now you can look after your mind while looking after your body to enhance your chances of conceiving and taking home that baby you have dreamed of.

Originally devised as a group program by Harvard Assoc Professor Dr Ali Domar, and backed by over 20 years of research, the MindBody Program for Fertility significantly enhances your chances of conceiving as well as addressing the feelings of anxiety and depression that are common to women struggling with fertility issues.

Dr Domar, author of “Conquering Infertility,” is a world-renowned expert on the link between the mind, the body and fertility and has dedicated over 20 years of research into devising the MindBody Program for Fertility.

Now available 1:1 online, the program can be done at any stage of your fertility treatment. To learn more about the program click here and see if the MindBody Program for Fertility is right for you.
