Are you ready to grow your family? Adding doula care to your fertility journey can be nourishing and supportive. Doula care is customized to your unique path and can be stand-alone or complementary to that of your Doctor or Midwife. Whether you are planning natural conception, or ART (Assisted reproductive technology) treatments such as IVF, IUI, or other options I am here to support you.
Becoming pregnant is a journey of mind, body, and spirit and the addition of a fertility doula care can smooth your path.
Holistic Fertility Support
Calm: Providing more than just a listening ear, I encourage and guide you on fear releasing exercises, provide techniques such as Reiki and CranioSacral to reduce your cortisol (stress hormones) and ease your mind and body into a relaxed state. Reiki and CranioSacral treatments have been shown to increase fertility, especially when unexplained fertility is the issue.
Awareness: Sharing information on tuning into your body’s current fertility patterns (not everyone follows the textbook pattern) so that you can better connect and understand what is happening in your unique cycles. While growing this awareness I also encourage you to connect with yourself. This may also include nutrition and movement suggestions.
Balance: Many things we do in life can shift our bodies out of balance. Our goal will be to give your body the opportunity to return to balance. We will gently facilitate bringing your body into balance and release any energy blocks you may have from past trauma either emotional or even a simple fall.
A study published in 2012 in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found fertility rates improved for 60 percent of subjects after manual therapy was applied to the pelvic region. The author believes “manual therapy could potentially be used as a first course of treatment for infertile patients considering hormone therapy, intrauterine insemination (IUI), or IVF treatments.”
Prices and Options
Fertility care packages are created for each individual client but they usually consist of weekly sessions until the expected ovulation or IVF appointment, and a session on the day before the appointment or expected ovulation. All sessions are always done while fully clothed and can be in your home or at my treatment room.
There is no guarantee of pregnancy or outcomes from fertility doula services. This is a non-medical, complementary care to support you on your path.
