New Study - Reduce Stress, Increase Fertility

This is exciting! I wanted to share this with you. I found a new study showing the link between stress reduction and increased fertility.

"The study, funded by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., and conducted in conjunction with The Domar Center at Boston IVF revealed a pregnancy rate of 52 percent among women who participated in a stress management program as compared to a 20 percent pregnancy rate for women who were not exposed to the stress management program. The program was designed to educate women on the utilization of cognitive, relaxation and lifestyle techniques to manage stress.

Stress management had an even greater impact on pregnancy rates for women who showed higher baselines symptoms of depression. Pregnancy rates jumped to 67 percent for women with signs of depression at the start of the study who engaged in the stress management program versus no pregnancies for those that did not."

My take home message is that stress can affect your ability to conceive but you have the ability to do something about it. Fertility Yoga classes and my Couples Yoga Mind Body Program can help reduce anxiety by teaching you effective stress reduction tools & techniques. Not only will these tools help improve your chances of conceiving they will help transform your experience of your fertility journey and have a positive impact in all areas of your life.

Imagine if your life was no longer "on hold"! Imagine living your life fully! Imagine feeling happiness and joy again! You CAN continue to live your life without feeling overwhelmed and consumed by your fertility challenges. I know because I am doing it and I have seen it over and over again with my clients in the last 5 years.

What are you waiting for? Let me help you get started today! It is time to live! Life is occurring NOW!
