Why These Hidden Stressors Need to Be Addressed Before IVF
Dec 19, 2021
Welcome to day #3 of our Holiday Series. We’re digging into different stressors that impact fertility.
You may feel like IVF is your next best chance of pregnancy success. But what we know from working with hundreds of couples on the fertility journey is that healing opportunities are always missed.
As you may know, we specialize in low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, and premature ovarian insufficiency. Often, before couples come to see us and start our Fab Fertile Method they have experienced failed cycles, canceled cycles, poor response during the IVF cycle, and miscarriage.
Many times the same IVF protocol is used again and again and the result is heartbreaking. When we work with couples we address healing opportunities that conventional medicine has often missed and these are the key to pregnancy success.
This episode is for you if:
- You don’t feel stressed but maybe you’re missing something that can help you optimize pregnancy success
- You feel very stressed and you’ve already made so many changes but wondering if there are other missed healing opportunities that can help fast track pregnancy success
- You’re thinking about IVF but the thought of the process fills you with apprehensive and stress but really want to get pregnant naturally so can optimize your health and have a healthy pregnancy
In this episode you'll learn:
- The different types of hidden stressors and why you need to address them before moving to IVF
- Why including our partner is essential to your success
- How to know when IVF is right for you so that you can optimize pregnancy success
