The Infertility Workbook

Infertility is a complex and frustrating issue for millions of people because so many factors can influence the possibility of conception, making it difficult for couples to identify which factors are at the root of the problem. Some of these factors are known, and others remain a mystery even to experienced infertility researchers, but one thing is certain: mind-body techniques and stress reduction can have a dramatic effect on fertility outcomes. Most major fertility clinics have incorporated mind-body programs to help their clients conceive. The Infertility Workbook is based on a program incorporating stress reduction techniques, imagery exercises, and communication and listening skills that was researched at Harvard University and is proven to increase pregnancy rates. Each chapter addresses a stage in the conception process, and the easy-to-use workbook format helps readers chart their progress as they develop skills for increasing their chance of pregnancy. Created specifically for women, this program addresses both practical and personal lifestyle factors that may be affecting readers' fertility and offers guidance for enhancing fertility that readers can implement in the comfort and privacy of their homes.
