Five Ways To Manage Mental Health To Improve Fertility

It can be overwhelming trying for a baby. It’s easy to become caught up in all the things that you should be eating, should be reading and should and should not be doing, etc, etc. 

The list goes on and on. 

You’re trying to do all the things to get pregnant to the point that you are now becoming less fertile because of the stress. 

If one more person says “just relax”, you will scream!

This doesn’t need to be your reality.

The mind is incredibly powerful. When you have a healthy mind, you are more likely to have a healthy body and therefore be more fertile, and more likely to make your dream of being a mum come true!

As an expert in fertility, here are my top five ways I suggest you start implementing to manage your mental health for improved fertility.

Five Ways To Improve Fertility With a Healthy Mind

1. Get Honest

We all live increasingly busy lives and become easily overwhelmed, we are not honest about what we do and don’t do. 

Make a promise to yourself to be absolutely honest about what you want and why you want it now. 

Lack of clarity is a huge hurdle to achieving your goals. Get clear about what you want!!

2.Observe Your Stress

Do you have any of the following signs or symptoms ? If so please be honest and write down how it affects you.

  • Difficulty getting up in the morning
  • Continuing fatigue that’s not eased with rest
  • Foggy thoughts
  • Lethargy doing daily activities
  • Poor memory
  • Not feeling truly awake until after 10am
  • Low energy between 3 – 4 pm
  • Decreased interest in sex
  • Decreased ability to handle stress
  • Light headed when standing up quickly
  • Not very productive
  • Tired when you stop moving
  • Low mood
  • Less enjoyment with life
  • Increased hormonal feelings
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed

If you are feeling any of the above, it’s likely that you are feeling stressed. The more of these signs and symptoms you are currently experiencing, the more stressed you are. 

Once you’ve identified that you are feeling stressed, you are in a better position to take action to improve your mental health.

3. Stay Hydrated

Many illnesses which trouble people worldwide come from a simple unrecognised cause – we don’t drink enough water! 

What happens if we drink tea, coffee, or caffeinated drinks in place of water? These are central nervous system stimulants and at the same time, they are dehydrating agents because of their strong diuretic action on the kidneys. 

So be kind to yourself and get creative with your drinks menu.

Include fresh cold pressed vegetable juices with a small proportion of fruits for sweetening. 

Stock your kitchen cupboard with herbal teas – some now come in variety packs or ask for samples from companies to expand your choices. 

I suggest you make a cup of herbal tea at least twice a day and if it’s within arms reach you will drink it!!

Invest some money on good quality cordials and non carbonated soft drinks or a fresh coconut.

4. Journaling

Writing is a way to express your feelings and thoughts.

Let the words spill out on the page and you will feel better.

You can always turn to your journal when you are in need of inspiration, clarification, or consolation.

It can be a confidante and a safe place the place to script your inmost dreams and your authentic voice.

Journals can exist in many forms, it can be a much longed for beautiful artistic large book, something handy to carry around with you or a basic notepad – whatever is your preference.

Just start to write and be honest with yourself.

If you prefer to do this digitally you can make your accounts passcode protected.

Most of all get honest and be clear.

Trying to Conceive – Emotions and The Five Elements

Emotions are classified into five predominant states: joy, rumination, sadness, fear, and anger. These states correspond to the five evolving elements of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. The five emotions are generated by the activities of the five organ networks when they are stimulated by external change. Thus the emotions are a manifestation of the energy of the organ networks and may be thought of as the motivation energy of the body.
 
The continual shift of emotional states is a natural phenomenon. Most children embody this spontaneity, moving through and experiencing a range of feelings in a short period of time without getting stuck. However, dwelling on one particular emotion will disrupt the natural cycles of energy transformation and circulation within the body and throw stress upon the corresponding organ. If dwelling on one emotion continued to excess, the stress from imbalance can result in disease.

Emotions are classified into five predominant states: joy, rumination, sadness, fear, and anger

Anger, the emotion of the liver network, rises so that the energy is strongest in the head and shoulders. The nervous system, which corresponds with the wood element, extends the energy of the liver-gall-bladder network and developed like a tree. The rising motion of the liver’s energy can be seen when a person becomes angry, causing the blood to rush to the head and face, and the face becomes red. The energy from anger can be used constructively to get through a situation of persistent obstruction with confidence. However, high blood pressure, headaches, and pain in the neck, shoulders, and head may be the consequences of prolonged anger. In severe situations stroke and heart attack may result.
 
Joy, the emotion of the heart- small intestine network, concentrates energy in the chest, allowing the opening of our hearts to promote acceptance and love. Our indulging in happiness causes our heart energy to become dispersed, though, affecting the functions of the other organ networks as well. Imbalance arising from extreme joy and excitement may present abnormal heartbeat, palpitation, dizziness, tiredness, and in severe instances, fainting or loss of consciousness.
 
Grief or sadness is the emotion of the lung-large intestine network. Though the heaviest of all emotional energies, sadness produces tears that wash away pain, sorrow, and anguish. In healthy expressions, the tenderness of sadness promotes empathy, caring, and understanding, which bring out the humanity in all of us.
 
Fear, the emotion of the kidney-bladder network, concentrates this system’s energy downward to the abdomen and lower extremities. The abdomen is where one’s physical essence is stored and can be accessed. Therefore it is not surprising that far is the greatest motivator of human behaviour. Fear in excess creates paralysis rather than action, and is the single biggest obstacle to achieving our full potential. Extreme fear of pain can cause some people to become addicted to substances. And since fear drives energy downward, extreme fear can cause some people to involuntarily move their bowels or pass urine, and in severe cases they become incontinent. other symptoms of imbalance from fear include pain and weakness in the lower back and legs.
 
Rumination, the emotion of the spleen-pancreas-stomach network, concentrates energy within the brain. When we continually ponder problems, the most frequent symptom experienced is insomnia. In this case, the energy stays in the brain at night instead of following its normal course of descending to the lower part of the body, which allows us to sleep peacefully.
Worry, a variation of the energy of the spleen-pancreas-stomach network, coagulates energy so that the body becomes sluggish. When energy congeals from worry, we become unable to do even the smallest of tasks. When the spleen-pancreas-stomach network is unable to transform nutrients and transport waste freely, we become prone to digestive problems.

From no hope to healthy baby.

Many of my clients come to me after they’ve been told there is no hope or possibility to have a baby and their fertility results indicate their chances of conceiving are very low.

We put together a positive strategy that helped them move forward and have a healthy baby.

Ayesha’s Secondary infertility “Just be happy with one”

Sometimes I have a long relationship with my clients as I have been working for over 20 years as a fertility specialist.

I may meet a woman when she has irregular, painful periods or PCOS and she wants to look at nutrition and lifestyle advice to help balance or regain her menstrual cycle once this improves I may not see her for years until the time comes when she wants to think about her fertility in a more focused way.

Ayesha came to me when she had been on the contraceptive pill (for 15 years) but not currently in a relationship, we had a general discussion about her health and what she wanted in the future.

Like many single women I see she wanted to be in a loving relationship but despite dating and keeping an open attitude to who she may meet she was alone and lonely. She decided to stop taking the pill as she had taken it initially for her problematic skin and we discussed that it was a strong medicine, that required mandatory liver testing every 6 months, and the effects of this should be considered.

"Like many single women I see she wanted to be in a loving relationship but despite dating and keeping an open attitude to who she may meet she was alone and lonely."

Happily things took a positive turn and she began a relationship with someone who had been a very close friend it was strange in some ways but also wonderful as they already had a deep friendship and understood each other.

Ayesha wanted to start a family and although it went against her cultural and family background to do this before she was married she recognized she was approaching her 37th birthday had an extremely busy and responsible job in finance and had to travel abroad for her job so she wanted to have a realistic overview of her health and fertility.

I recommended she went to see an excellent gynaecologist to assess her hormones and fertility and we started a programme to help reduce stress and support her sleep. She worked a little less, as late nights at the office (and weekend sometimes) did not seem as attractive as being with her partner and enjoying downtime and some self care.

After 6 months with both herself and her boyfriend improving their lifestyles they had the wonderful news that she was pregnant.

Their first child was born by an elective c-section and the family were delighted and her parents had already planned the wedding with followed a few months later.

I saw such an amazing transformation in this woman from someone who was a person who worked in finance and operated in a very masculine/yang way, who had previously not shown much interest in children, to a wonderful, loving mother who was certain that she wanted to add to her family and have a sibling for her first born son.

As she was 38 when she gave birth the first time she wanted to give her body time to recover from the pregnancy and c section so when her son was 18 months she started to think about her second child. She and her now husband expected the second child to come as easily as the first but this did not happen.

After extensive testing over several months she discovered that there were complications that had arisen from internal scar tissue after her c section.

Our work together focused on supporting her through:

  • Anger and disbelief that this was happening to her
    Panic that time would run out
  • Blame she felt lay at the hands of the person who carried out her C section
  • Resentment of all her pregnant friends and women who had 2 or 3 children whilst she struggled
  • Confusion about which route to pursue

She commented many times how glad she was that we had an established working relationship and she could be honest about her thoughts and feelings no matter (in her words) how bitter and ugly they were.

After 18 months and

  • 2 operations
  • 3 fertility clinics
  • 4 IUI’s
  • 2 IVF cycles

A positive pregnancy test finally came. My role during that 18 months of treatment was to provide a safe space to express her

  • Disappointment of her husband that he did not seem to want it as much as her.
  • Frustration at the lack of care and continuity from fertility clinics
  • Stress of the two week wait
  • Sadness and despair when the pregnancy test was negative
  • Envy of her friends giving birth all around her.

The pregnancy continued and her 12 week scan was scheduled by the hospital on her 40th birthday it felt like such a landmark.

She was alone when the news was delivered that there was no heartbeat after repeated attempts to find a sign of life the baby had suffered a fetal death.

It is impossible to convey to you the grief and devastation she felt on that day and for months to follow. Our sessions together now incorporate grief counselling and dealing with the trauma of receiving a letter from her insurers stating a charge for a “spontaneous termination”
This is something she felt you elected to do – a choice not a reflection of the soul that had cruelly been snatched away from her.

How does one begin to recover from this? How do you go on?
How to shower and dress and face the day?

She did because she had her first child to consider and she felt immense guilt and even shame she was not being the mother she should be to him.

Again this was the focus of our weekly sessions – how to recover? How to continue for the sake of her child and her marriage?

I can honestly say I am extremely proud of our work together as I was one of the only people who allowed her to express herself over the next 2 years of her fertility journey when she said “ I just know … I just know there is another soul out there for me. I know I will be a mother again.

I understand how heartbreaking and painful it was for her husband, mother and 2 brothers and they witnessed the pain, disappointment and heartbreak of more attempts at IVF and IUI ending in negative results.

They told her to stop to give up.

Plus a grandmother that said “It is because you had an illegitimate child God is punishing you” and another friend who said “I don’t understand why you wasted all that money – just be happy with one!”

One can hardly imagine the stress and trauma felt by this woman.

During these 2 years we focused on healing, we decided to think again about achieving another pregnancy. She felt this was her last chance and she wanted to ‘throw everything at it.”
I encouraged her to do that but also to make sure she had time for her relationship and her son. This was not an easy journey but she never gave up she felt in the depth of her heart she would have another child.

She took everything on board

  • Massage
  • Guided visualization
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
  • Extensive nutritional support

She did several more rounds of IVF and IUI and then decided she was done with hospitals, doctors and clinics. No more treatments, no more injections, no more hormones, no more hospital appointments but she did have a strong unshakable belief she would have another child

2 years after the tragic loss of her baby at 12 weeks she had a positive pregnancy result and shortly after her 43rd birthday gave birth to a beautiful healthy daughter.

I cried when I saw that baby I cried tears of joy and I admire the fact she stayed true to her intuition.

I invite you to explore

To dream, to daydream and to hope again.

We can all become focused even obsessed about one thing in life and that narrow gauge can create rigidity and constriction.

I invite you to become lighter, more fluid, remember joy and laugh.

"I invite you to become lighter, more fluid, remember joy and laugh."

The same way we get inspiration for meals when we look through a recipe book or magazine I invite you to explore.

Have you got a book in your house, by a bed on the bookshelf an unopened inspirational book?

A book of dreams, thoughts, poetry or quotes from greetings cards you have saved?

I would like to encourage you to take 10 minutes each day

  • to think about one inspiring thing
  • write down dreams that you may have – just write what comes from your heart this is a space for you without limitations,
  • think ‘what is my passion?’
  • you can make a dream vision board
  • daydream and let your imagination flow

Then fearlessly take action

  • learn how to paint
  • join a book club
  • practice yoga
  • have a regular get together with friends
  • visit a new country

Part of your fertility journey can be taking a break from thinking and doing.

Being is important.

Gratitude for what you have.

Loving those around you.

I invite you to explore your feelings and work with me on all aspects of your life.

Sometimes it can be something we have not thought of that brings us a breakthrough.

Let your energy flow …….

Case Study: Poppy and her guilt of a termination

Poppy came to see me when her and her husband felt the ‘should’ try to have a baby, not because they felt it was the perfect time but because she was 39 and her biological clock was ticking.

They would have liked to be in a better financial position, had a bigger apartment, had some more savings and felt more prepared but knew that it was coming to the ‘now or never’ point in their relationship and they better get on with it.

This was not a fairytale – it was reality.

"I suggested the first thing to do was to get fertility tests for both of them"

Poppy asked for my advice and I suggested the first thing to do was to get fertility tests for both of them. This has a dual purpose of having the laboratory result and also focusing the mind to realize what the odds are today.

The results were distressing her Anti Mullairan Hormone blood test indicated she had an almost zero chance of conceiving. I always caution clients not to look at this result in isolation.

Poppy had a relative who was an eminent obstetrician in her country of origin and she arranged a telephone call with him to ask his advice. After sharing her test results with him the medical advice was to come to terms to terms with the fact that she would never be a mother.

"The medical advice was to come to terms with the fact that she would never be a mother"

Poppy had a relative who was an eminent obstetrician in her country of origin and she arranged a telephone call with him to ask his advice. After sharing her test results with him the medical advice was to come to terms to terms with the fact that she would never be a mother.

Of course more distress and heartbreak piled on.

The emotions that came with this news were:

  • Disbelief
  • Confusion
  • Anger
  • Resentment
  • Rage
  • Heartbreak
  • Sorrow
  • Grief
  • Shame and guilt

Shame and guilt because years before she met her current husband in a previous marriage Poppy had had a termination. The stress of regretting her previous decisions and blaming herself for her situation was hell. A lonely, isolating purgatory.

Poppy needed someone to share this with and as we had established a relationship of trust, she was able to unburden herself by talking it through with me. There were a lot of hot angry tears, a lot of what if’s .. and a lot of letting go and healing involved in our sessions. I coached Poppy and believed if she did want to become a mother nothing and nobody should stand in her way of trying.

Poppy and her husband changed their lifestyles and had a very proactive approach to trying, against the odds, to have a baby. It was hard as Poppy was the higher earner in their relationship – but she reduced her working hours and stress and tried to focus on the quality of time she spent with her husband. After several months of focusing, sometimes not very romantically, on the fertile window that she had, Poppy had a positive pregnancy test. They were both overjoyed and in shock at the same time.

Her first trimester was one of nausea, tiredness and getting a little rounder in the tummy but she was like a warrior and took it all in her stride as she had wanted a baby so much. The twelve week scan ended in utter devastation there was no heartbeat and she had to wait 4 days for a termination of the child within her that no longer had life.

Heartbreak, grief, rage and deep deep sorrow spilled from her in our regular sessions together and again the guilt surfaced.

  • Was it her fault?
  • Punishment for the previous termination?

If you have been through this experience you will know the depths your soul can plunge to when you lose a child. You lose the hope and joy for that little person you wanted to desperately to welcome into your family.

"If you have been through this, you will know the depths your soul can plunge to when you lose a child"

She talked to me honestly about her feelings and cried a lot during our sessions. Her mother, to whom she was close, lived in her country of origin and she had decided not to tell her about the pregnancy until after her 12 week scan so she did not have that support to turn to. She felt utterly alone and devastated.

I am a certified grief counsellor and this is one of the occasions where through that additional experience I was able to professionally counsel her myself without her having to seek out another professional when she was feeling raw and shattered. I already had a full case history of her and her partner so the need to explain the whole story to a new person was not necessary. Poppy said many times this was something very valuable to her.

After several months, being able to slowly heal and the support of a good GP (Primary Care Physician) picking up the pieces and dealing with her grief Poppy decided to try to conceive again against all the odds.

Poppy was able to apply for IVF on the NHS in the UK.

There was both a time and geographical limit to 1 round of IVF free of charge and we prepared her mind, body and spirit to let go of guilt and shame and to accept that she was worthy of becoming a mother and had a lot to offer.

"Their daughter is the light of their lives and I feel pure joy every time I see her."

The very first cycle of IVF resulted in a positive pregnancy test and of course the first 12 weeks were filled with trepidation and they could not allow themselves to believe it would work out. Happily everything went well and after a healthy pregnancy she gave birth to a beautiful daughter.


It took great courage to keep going and the couple both said the confidential coaching and support I provided played a huge part in giving them a clear direction of what choices they had going forward. Their daughter is the light of their lives and I feel pure joy every time I see her.

Trying to get pregnant and kicking yourself for letting too much time go by?

Everyone can feel time pressures in life. Too much to do, not enough time to do it in but when it comes to trying to conceiving I believe that the thought that you have wasted time needs to be dealt with.

"The thought that you have wasted time has to be dealt with..."

You may feel

  • you have wasted time in previous relationships
  • you have wasted time before seeking additional support or advice if you have not fallen pregnant within a few months
  • angry, frustrated and resentful that you pursued treatments that did not bring you the results you had desired.
  • you shouldn’t have done IUI when you could have gone straight to IVF
  • you shouldn’t have listened to your friends and family who suggested to just give it a bit longer?

We live in such a speeded up age and people are in general are frantic about time.

I will encourage you to look at where you are right now. If you are constantly rushing towards the future then are you missing this present moment.

Sometimes it is important to have an outlet for your feelings, to grieve the things that have gone, to share them, to let off steam, to express how you feel in order to bring you to this present moment.

I can

  • teach you some centring techniques
  • devise a tailor-made meditation for you so that you are able to let go of resentment of the past
    to be fully in this present moment
  • help you feel optimistic about your future.
  • help you feel more able to cope with whatever comes your way.
  • Ease your frustrations and self judgement
  • save you time, save you heartache

Is Trying to Get Pregnant Making You Feel Out of Control?

Is_trying_to_get_pregnant_making_you_feel_out_of_control-01

I’ve worked with hundreds of women who desperately want to have a baby.


They come to the right point in their life and if they don’t get pregnant immediately, they can’t believe it.

It may be the first time they haven’t been about to achieve the goal they’ve been going after. For the first time, they’re dealing with something out of their control.

"The amount of stress anxiety and tension that can build up within the physical body actually is detrimental to conception..."

You’ve done everything you were supposed to:

  • Studied and done well in your education,
  • Secured a good job through hard work,
  • Followed your career path with effort and determination to achieve what you want

However your body it’s not responding the way you want. It may be the first time you find yourself unable to work hard and focus to get what you want.

The amount of stress anxiety and tension that can build up within the physical body actually is in itself detrimental to conception, however one cannot help the way they are and sometimes you need guidance, advice and to be pointed in the right direction.

There may be additional services or support you need such as

  • taking some time off from a high-pressure job
  • getting a fertility massage
  • making your commute easier
  • being in nature
  • visiting an art gallery
  • getting together with friends – laughter is very healing.
  • escaping from your thoughts at the cinema
  • do something that feeds your soul and giving yourself a break

In this day and age most women are their hardest taskmasters and sometimes we need to be reminded and given permission to do nothing – you’re not wasting your time you are investing in your health

Contact me now and know

  • You have a constant companion in me
  • All the emotions you are feeling are normal
  • There are ways to make this easier
  • I have the experience and expertise to help you.
