When you are trying to conceive, and it isn’t happening, there are challenges on many levels. This program will optimize your efforts to conceive by giving you tools to reduce stress and anxiety, release those fearful thoughts that trigger the stress response in your body.
Lisanne Wellness Center is thrilled to offer The Fertile Mind Body Program™. This six-week course aims to improve your emotional and mental wellbeing while experience infertility. According to a recent study in Fertility and Sterility, women who participate in a mind/body program while undergoing IVF have a significantly higher pregnancy rate than those who do not (52% vs. 20%).
The Fertile Mind Body Program™ is hosted by Michelle Galatoire who experienced infertility herself, and struggled with her own challenges and obstacles on her fertility journey. Michelle’s spent years gathering and learning stress management techniques and healing modalities to release the stress, anxiety and fears that are so common to the infertility experience. Inspired to help other women going through this challenge, she has now helped thousands of women who are going through the same thing. Michelle works with individuals and in group settings, supporting women in navigating the challenges of infertility and works alongside her clients to help them find peace and hope even while trying to conceive.

See What Our Mind & Body Warriors Have To Say
When thinking back of my 6 year journey of trying to have a baby, I try to look for the turning point, where I felt that even after spending all this time trying without succeeding, this actually may happen.
That turning point for me was the moment when I started working with Michelle. The first thing I felt with her is that I could trust her.
No one knows a journey through infertility unless they have been through it and experienced it themselves. I was always fearful that getting pregnant and having a child may never happen for me, and whether I liked it or not, that thought was debilitating.
Michelle picked up that right away and taught me tools of how to let go of that fear.
She helped me realize how important it is for the body and mind to be in sync and most importantly – not to judge myself for feeling how I do.
I went through 5 IUIs, 6 IVFs, 10 embryo transfers, 3 chemical pregnancies and one miscarriage. But believe it or not, as I decided this would be my last try – it finally happened. This time I went for it with the calmest most relaxed emotions (as much as possible…) and used all the tools Michelle had taught me during our consults and in the group program. It worked! I am now 20 weeks pregnant with a perfect and healthy looking baby boy.
If there’s anything Michelle passed on to me it is that the mind is so powerful and controls so much of how the body reacts to situations, hormones, procedures and so much more. It’s not easy to get to the stage where you accept that and know how to be in charge of your thoughts, and also knowing how to embrace your feelings and let them be still takes some practice, and I practice this every day!
At many times, this journey felt so dark, alone and never ending. Michelle completely changed that around for me. Now I have tools for life!
I will be thankful to her with all my heart forever.
The mind and body healing sessions hosted by Michelle have been very valuable to me. There is something liberating about sharing my infertility journey with other women and knowing that I am not alone. Michelle demonstrated kindness, empathy, and understanding to each one of us. I considered the tools and suggestions given during each of the session as little pieces of encouragement.
The one on one session with Michelle was equally beneficial as it provided me an opportunity to really open up and view the whole picture of my situation. I highly recommend attending the group sessions or having one on one sessions with Michelle. They truly do make a difference.
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years now. We have been thru 5 IUI’s, 6 IVF’s, 3 chemical pregnancies and so much more.Needless to say, this has been a long, tiring, disappointing and difficult journey.
Being a patient in 3 different clinics, the one big difference in Dr. Allon’s clinic, was the Lisanne wellness center, mind and body experience. A group session that takes place online once a week with women who are going through the same struggle as you are. I have never been an advocate for the group therapy because I found that it could be more depressing than helpful sometimes, however, Michelle Galatoire makes it a completely different experience. It’s not only helpful to share your story with others who are so supportive, understanding and caring, but you’re also given tools to help you through the crucial, difficult moments of your journey. In fact, after all this time of trying and trying, we were about to start a cycle using an egg donor and I got pregnant naturally, For the first time ever! Unfortunately it didn’t make it past 6 weeks but I am so sure that a relaxed and positive state of mind is so essential and necessary in order to make your most deepest wish come true. This state of mind isn’t easy to get to with everything we go through, but thanks to Michelle and her therapeutic teaching I was able to get there. I’ve learned so much, even to appreciate this complicated journey, and I know that when it ends, I will be a stronger, better person.
I want to thank you again for all your wisdom and advice. I had an IUI yesterday and everything went smoothly. I purchased the IVF/IUI program from Circle + Bloom and listened to the guided meditation before and after treatment. This time I stayed longer in my doctor’s office and then went to my acupuncturist. Thanks to you, I am open to new possibilities and hoping for the best.
