Few of us are good at managing stress. Whether it comes from work, relationship issues, or overall lifestyle, we all have stress in our lives. It can add a signficant layer of difficulty and challenge if you are trying to conceive.
Fertility is seldom blocked by just one issue or condition. Everything we know about healthy conception also indicates that stress increases negative effects that we may already be experiencing. The complex biochemical changes occurring in our bodies from stress also create changes that do not support conception.
Learning ways to maange our stress can be helpful at many different stages of the "becoming pregnant" journey. All the stages benefit from knowing how to be in control of emotions, knowing how to create options and relief when there are challenges, and understandin the deep healing that occurs when we know how to bring oujselves to a state of complete relaxation.
Consider learning some basic self-hypnosis techniques for bringing your mind, body, and soul into alignment. We offer the complete HypnoFertiilty program, as created by the HypnoFertility Foundation. These resources can be invaluable in your joureny to conception, pregnancy, birth, and a healthy baby!
