Age

The 3 words you never want to hear again: “You chose this!”

People imply that you have chosen not to have a child until you are over 35 or 40. You have put your career or lifestyle choices first!

An increasing number of women have

  • had a termination
  • a sexually transmitted disease
  • ignored pelvic pain which may have caused gynaecological problems
  • not put their reproductive life at the forefront of their minds.

“You put your career or lifestyle choices first…”

Often a woman’s period has just been thought of as an inconvenience and nothing more, some women have taken the pill without a break for months or even years upon advice.

I have witnessed, many times, my client’s guilt, anxiety and shame when they tell me they’ve had a termination and they have not told their current partner. Carrying this negative emotion with them is difficult and it needs to be released and this is where my experience and my deep listening is beneficial to help achieve the goals you so dearly want.

If women have tried for some time to conceive and are thinking of visiting a fertility clinic there is a lot of confusion about the right choice, who to trust, where to go, what to do.

Over the years I’ve guided many couples through this quagmire of confusion – what at first seems like the best option may not be.

I create a space to fully express the emotions that may come up – your shame, self pity, self hatred, embarrassment and anger, you feel life is not fair and the one I find that causes the most anxiety.

Is time is ticking? Is your fertility is falling off a cliff?  Why didn’t you do this sooner? A casual, but hurtful, comment from somebody could literally make you want to scream.

I have many clients over 40 who have given birth to their much longed for child, even up to the age of 45 with a naturally conceived baby.

The world of medicine is changing and progressing very fast and that is why it is one of my absolute passions to continually develop my broad professional knowledge.

The worry that keeps you up at night, “Am I too old to get pregnant?”

Throughout my years of supporting my clients the question “Am I too old to get pregnant?” has come up regularly.

We cannot ignore the fact that if you had to pin fertility on just one factor the most important would be age.

Age is the most important factor – but it’s not the only one

The older you are, for both males and females, the more likely you and your partner are to have problems conceiving, carrying a pregnancy and giving birth to a healthy baby – but even with all of this, there is hope.

If you find yourself over the age of 35 you cannot change your age, however you can improve a number of other factors which will improve your chances of conceiving.

Lifestyle choices become increasingly important.

  • you can take a proactive approach to have a healthy BMI,
  • a constant body weight, taking regular gentle exercise,
  • understanding your menstrual cycle and
  • identifying your fertile window.

Make yourself and in particular your health and wellbeing a priority through optimising general lifestyle habits such as getting good sleep, avoiding toxins, not smoking, limiting caffeine and alcohol and having some time in your day to relax and during your week to be in nature.

I know from working with my clients for years, that when you start trying to conceive life can seem unfair, out of control and quickly an enormous amount of anxiety can build up.

There are more resources now than ever to try and inform you about lifestyle choices and diets, but sometimes this can leave you even more confused and bewildered.

This is where my clients find my support so valuable as I am your constant companion on your fertility journey.

My experience will provide you with deep listening. By this I mean I will let you express your private frustrations in a non-judgemental space.

After a comprehensive consultation we put together a positive strategy to move forward.

You will be able to hope again.
