Hypnotherapy for Fertility

Creating a fertile state
through a mind-body approach

A very real concern for a lot of people is the inability to conceive a baby. Each year more than a million North Americans pursue treatment for “infertility.”


Since your class, we have had two extremely successful hypnobirths…and we are going to get another opportunity to do another one. I’m expecting our 4th baby…due in January. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I learned from you during your classes! It changed my birthing experiences…and now labor is my favorite part of my entire pregnancy!

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Many people think that hypnosis is sleep or loss of awareness. That’s not true. In hypnosis, you do not fall asleep or lose conscious awareness. You are alert and aware of everything at all times. You can hear everything the hypnotherapist says to you.
No. People gain a misconception from watching hypnosis stage shows. The stage hypnotist is an entertainer and the participants volunteer to go on stage and perform silly things. They are giving their consent to act silly.
Hypnosis is not about losing control or surrendering ones will. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. This means a person who does not want to be hypnotized cannot be so. There is no magic or voodoo involved.
If you are hypnotized, you are NOT weak-minded. According to experts, there is a scientific correlation between intelligence and the ability to be hypnotized. The greater the intelligence, the better the hypnotic subject.
No. It is simply impossible to “get stuck” in a state of hypnosis. Remember, in hypnosis you are always awake, alert and in control. To come out of hypnosis, you simply open your eyes and you terminate the hypnotic state.
Hypnosis is a state of consciousness somewhere in between being awake and being asleep. It feels quite similar to daydreaming. You are aware of what is going on around you without the need to pay attention to it. It’s a feeling of letting go and being removed from conscious awareness. While in hypnosis most people come in and out, hearing some of what is being said while enjoying a feeling of drifting in space.
There are numerous techniques that a professional Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist uses to induce a deep state of relaxation (i.e.: hypnosis). There is soft music, a gentle voice, suggestions that intend for the body to begin relaxing and letting go, scripts and sometimes the movement of a body part (like lifting and dropping an arm and hand). It is important to know that the Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist is only a facilitator and does not “put anyone into a trance”. Only you can decide if you want to go into that wonderful trance state because if you do not, then nobody can force you to do so.
