What is Fertility by Hypnosis?

Fertiliy by Hypnosis™ is a safe, non-invasive, effective and affordable technique that can enhance your fertility. Our program includes several natural therapy treatments and is tailor made to give you and your body the best possible chance of getting pregnant.

Fertility by Hypnosis™ works by eliminating the main culprits of "unexplained infertility": stress and lack of confidence. Stress is literally a nervous reaction that occurs within the ANS (Automatic Nervous System, which is responsible for maintaining the equilibrium of our internal environment) and branches out to every organ in the body.

Researchers have found that stress hormones do not contribute to an environment conducive for pregnancy. Dr. Mark Bush of Colorado’s Conceptions Reproductive Center says, “There is a definite link between hormones released in the brain and decreasing a woman’s ability to release an egg.”

Many women are experiencing difficulty conceiving due to psychobiological issues. This means that mental processes and behaviours are creating blocks that cause infertility. Often the perceived urgency of getting pregnant, or the fear that you may not succeed, creates a downward spiral of stress and worry. Sometimes it can be unresolved past issues, such as abortion, miscarriage, fear of imitating someone else’s parenting mistakes, sexual abuse or trauma, sudden death or injury to a loved one, abusive relationships, and history of mental or physical handicaps.

Being told you are unable to conceive can often leave an imprint on your subconscious, just like hypnotic suggestion. When suggestions are presented by someone perceived to be in authority (such as a doctor), or when they are delivered with enough emotion or imagery, your subconscious mind can be triggered into believing it.

Ultimately, these destructive thought patterns are actually creating negative self hypnosis. Just like you need clear your body of toxins, you need to clear your mind of any conscious and unconscious blocks that may be preventing conception. Hypnosis can help release couples from stress cycles, and create a calm and relaxed internal environment, for new life to flourish.

Does it Really Work?

No-one in the world can guarantee that you will definitely become pregnant. But documented studies have shown remarkable evidence that hypnosis can dramatically improve your fertility, pregnancy, birth and recovery.

  • The Journal of the American Medical Women's Association and Fertility and Sterility studies have indicated that "infertile" women participating in mind/body therapy experienced a 42% - 55% conception rate as compared to a 20% rate in the control group who used no mind/body techniques.
  • Women with a history of depressive symptoms were twice as likely to suffer subsequent infertility (Psychosomatic Medicine, 1995 vol. 57). Within 6 months of receiving hypnotherapy treatment, women with depression showed a 60% viable pregnancy rate as compared to just 24% in women who underwent no mind/body treatment. (Journal of American Medical Women's Association, 199 vol. 54)
  • Self-hypnosis can strengthen the immune system by 48% in six weeks, according to a study by John Gruzelier, Professor of Psychology at Imperial College School of Medicine.
  • Professor Eliahu Levitas found that hypnosis can double the success rate of IVF. His findings were presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Conference in 2004.
  • In his book, 'The Psychobiology of Gene Expressions', Dr. Ernest L. Rossi suggests that hypnotic-type suggestions can activate specific genes involved with fertility and conception, including the IL-1, c-fos, and the CYP17 in a specific order.
  • Dr. Alfred A. Barrios found hypnotherapy produced a 93% success rate in curing psychoneurotic patients (those with emotional or mental disorders) after only 6 sessions.

I have Unexplained Infertility. Can you help me?

Yes! “'Unexplained infertility' actually means there is no physiological reason for a woman not to become pregnant. Hypnosis is one of the most powerful processes available for conquering ´unexplained infertility´.” - Board Certified Hypnotherapist Lynsi Eastburn, of the HypnoFertility Foundation.

What is hypnosis? Will it work on me? Is it dangerous to be hypnotised?

The word "hypnosis" springs all kind of images to mind. Often these are of people in a zombie-like trance state, or people unwittingly doing silly things on stage. There are many myths surrounding hypnosis, including that you go into a trance state where you cannot hear the hypnotist, that you may say or do things you did not want to, or that you can get 'stuck' in hypnosis.

The reality is that hypnosis is a state of relaxation, in which your conscious mind (the part that remembers your shopping lists, tells you to be worried about work or solves maths problems) is relaxed, so that the unconscious mind (where your imagination, emotions, habits and patterns lie) can be accessed. The hypnotic state is likened, by some, to a concentrated form of daydreaming.

It matters not whether you stay awake or fall asleep, whether you are good at meditation or not or whether your mind is 'still'. You will simply be relaxed and restful and your unconscious mind will be in a heightened state of awareness, so that we can work to create positive change.

Everyone is able to be hypnotised, and each person experiences hypnosis differently. Our skilled hypnotherapists will use different methods to induce the hypnotic state in each client.

I am already undergoing IVF/acupuncture/another medical procedure. Can you still help?

Yes! Our HypnoFertility Program can be used in conjunction with almost any medical procedure with impressive results, often making any such procedure work much better!

Hypnosis is a powerful adjunct to many other fertility treatments, whether natural or medically assisted. In fact, many doctors specialising in hormone-related conditions and reproductive disorders will refer their patients to an acupuncturist or hypnotherapist to complement the IVF process.

However, if you are on any medication, please let your therapist know before any treatment commences.

If I get pregnant before the end of the program, what should I do?

If you fall pregnant during our 12 Step Fertility by Hypnosis program, that is fantastic news! It is totally up to you whether you wish to continue with the program after conceiving, however we highly recommend that you do. The body usually needs about 3 months for changes to fully manifest, and to properly recover from whatever blockages and stresses were causing infertility.

Our program is designed to be a very personalised journey that adapts to your needs each and every time you visit. Additionally, the first trimester can be very stressful, and numerous studies have shown that stress levels during pregnancy can have a profound impact on the health of your baby. (Read more: Three Ways Stress Can Harm Your Baby) For these reasons, and many more, we really feel it is best to see the program through to the end.

What is your cancellation policy?

We are so certain that you will be pleased with your personalised Fertility by Hypnosis service that we do NOT ask you to sign any contract, or pay up front for the full 12 weeks. Of course, you can do so if you wish, but most of our clients pay per session. As such there is no need to worry about quit the program and seeking a refund. However, we do ask that if you need to cancel or reschedule any of your appointments that you give us at least 24 hours notice.
