When you embark on your fertility journey and the Assisted Reproductive Therapy route at the clinics, all the information you receive can be overwhelming. Together with the emotional stress you may be feeling, it can take its toll on your health and well-being. At Fertile Ova, the aim is to take the stress out of the equation; giving you more clarity and a safe space to explore and process your emotions. Another essential part of the program I offer is to increase your chances of conceiving by providing you with all the tools you need, and this includes adopting a new mindset towards your fertility. I have put together a Fertile Living Mindset Toolkit to help you set healthy boundaries, adopt simple practices, and making healthy choices when it comes to preserving and optimising your fertility. What is a Fertile Living Mindset? Stress, anxiety, dis-ease, menstruation issues, and not getting the right nutrients can have a negative impact on your fertility. How ever busy life is at times and no matter how stressful it can be to have a baby, there are small adjustments you can make to increase your chances of conceiving. These small adjustments are very easy to implement in your daily life and together, we devise a plan for you to embrace a more fertile life with fertile food, and fertile practices.
Fertility Support with Chinese Medicine The fertility support I offer is now divided into two phases; the preparation phase and the conceiving phase. This has proven to be the most effective way of working with my clients. I highly recommend starting with the preparation phase. This is a three month phase when you are not actively trying to get pregnant and the focus is entirely on preparing the body for conceiving. In this phase we start with a thorough assessment, get a good picture of your menstrual cycle from both a western medicine as well as a traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, understanding any underlying health conditions which may be affecting your chances of conceiving, charting your body temperature, adopting a Fertile Living Mindset, and learning simple home treatments to optimise fertility. Why three months? It takes between 90 to 120 days for an egg to grow from a dormant follicle to a mature egg ready to be released ( the ovulation). The three months is therefore a golden chance to maximise the quality of the egg, balance the body's energy (hormones), encourage better flow of blood to the reproductive organs. The conceiving stage is the period where you are actively trying to get pregnant. This phase looks at supporting your body while you are trying and working with the delicate balance of yin and yang. This is both a commitment and an investment in your fertile journey. Together, we dedicate some time away from the chaos of life to fully concentrate on your fertility. If you have been trying to conceive for longer than a year and have had a miscarriage or multiple miscarriages, I highly recommend the three month preparation phase. Acupuncture is often combined with the sessions. If you live in and around Amsterdam, the acupuncture sessions are held at my practice space. If you live outside Amsterdam, you can still access my program online via video consultation.
