1) It’s not all about the stats
Scientists love to make sense of things. It’s black and white to them. They don’t like the grey stuff so much (or the bewildering magic of Mother Nature).
You are only ever as old as you hormones say you are, and even in the most extreme cases of low AMH or high FSH we still see ladies getting pregnant every day.
You are an individual. Your body is extremely capable of healing, and in our experience, babies have a funny way of rocking up when we are told they actually can’t.
2) IVF maybe the only option they can give you but it isn’t the only way
Medics have a certain number of AMAZING tools in their kit. The thing is they are not entirely comprehensive. They also are sometimes much more than your body requires. IVF is often the next thing a doctor can offer you, even if the reasons for your fertility issues are not clear. It doesn’t mean it is the only option though. We see a lot of women who have had unnecessary IVF or referral for IVF. We are huge fans of IVF of course, but only in the right place at the right time.
There are certain questions and checks that we look at including your cycle, blood flow, emotional state and other aspects of your general and spiritual wellbeing that we so often find flag up the real things that a couple need to do either to avoid IVF or to ensure their IVF actually has the best possible chance.

3) How you feel about what you do IS important
It is really important that your body feels well, supported and as healthy as possible. The thing is, we all tick in a different way and our bodies respond to different things in order to feel well. It’s not a one size fits all and we should not be made to feel like there is a generic formula which MUST be followed. In our free insight into the secrets behind infertility we talk about the importance of finding the right fit for you, and how to know if you have found it.
4) There are simple things that can prevent conception for years but are easily sorted
There have been hundreds of times where we have asked three questions that doctors have not and in doing so have unearthed where the problem lies and what needs to be done. It’s important to really play detective. There are subtle hormonal imbalances which can really have an impact that can be found through examining your cycle. When you ovulate, what your body is like post ovulation, when you bleed, how you bleed, the colour, flow and duration etc are all things that medics rarely look at which in fact can flag up the tiniest tweaks that are needed which make the most difference.

5) Sometimes infertility can come from somewhere other than your physical body
Infertility can sometimes be to do with something else. Our minds are incredibly powerful and when we have subconscious worry, guilt or fear it can cause blocks which will work incredibly hard to protect you from pregnancy, even when it is the one thing you really want.
Spiritual growth can be another reason why your fertility has asked for your attention. There is a lot of soul and personal growth which can happen as a result of embarking on a journey to heal your fertility. Often this shapes the way our children need us to be.
