There are many ways to relax in preparation for before, during and after IVF treatments, medical interventions and assistance. The following skill set will help you cope with getting pregnant.
Fertility Coping Skills Tips! Relaxation – FIVE Minutes
The following breathing technique will help you to induce a feeling of relaxation in your body and mind.
Breathe in slowly and gently through your nose for the count of seven.
Pause for a moment………
Exhaling out through your mouth for the count of 11.
Continue to focus on the counting as you breathe.
Repeat this until you feel calm and relaxed.
Relaxation – TEN minutes
Close your eyes and follow your breath as you count slowly down from 10 to 1
Then scan your body, from the top of your head, down to the tips of your toes, noticing any parts of your body where you are holding on to any tension giving that tension a colour.
Then give a colour to the fresh air around your body and breathe in this relaxing colour deep into your body and use your in-breath to breath out the colour of tension away from your body.
Breath by breath, your whole body is being filled with that beautiful colour of relaxation
To come back to full awareness, count yourself up from 1 to 10 feeling refreshed and alert.
*If you practice at night while in bed it will turn into natural sleep Within a short amount of time and you will find that you do become more proficient in going deeper in relaxation each time.
- Take yourself out to lunch after appointments
- Treat yourself to something nice after a blood test
- Take a walk in nature after an ultrasound
- If rushing back to work after an appointment – listen to your favourite music on the way.
If you are like most women, we tend to hear the medical profession's negative feedback and forget the positive things we are told.
It is good to tell your self daily:
I choose to be optimistic.
I am ready to conceive easily.
My eggs are strong
My egg movement is normal.
My body fluids are normal.
My body joins in creating a healthy, normal pregnancy.
Hypnosis For IVF Treatments
Before or after your medical appointment, a hypnosis session can do wonders to help you relax and give you a feeling of control and connection with your mind and body. It is important to take some time each day to empty your mind, slow down your body and thoughts, and elicit a relaxation response; you'll improve your emotional clarity and eliminate some of the mental clutter that can interfere with you a day to day basis.
