Trying to Conceive- Hire a Fertility Coach

Trying to Conceive- Hire a Fertility Coach

Dealing with infertility takes an emotional and physical toll on you and your partner. You will likely experience a range of emotions from exhaustion and frustration to anxiety and despair. But the good news is you don’t have to deal with it alone. 

With so much information on the internet and discussion forums, it can be overwhelming to try and make sense of the world of “TTC” (trying to conceive). While advice from others can be helpful, it is important to keep in mind that every person’s journey is unique. 

What works for someone else might not work for you and, in fact, may cause even more stress and anxiety. This is where a fertility coach comes in handy.

A fertility coach uses a holistic approach to strengthen the mind-body connection in order to overcome barriers in your pregnancy journey. Coaches are specially trained and (have often) experienced fertility issues themselves so they know what you are going through and have the tools to help you.  

If you feel like you’re “stuck” or at a crossroads, strongly consider the following benefits that a fertility coach could offer you.


They Help You Navigate the System

Navigating through the medical system is tough for anyone. Jargon, specialists, tests, timing, etc. can be confusing on the best days and downright exhausting and overwhelming on the worst. 

Fertility treatment is not “one-size-fits-all “and a fertility coach can help you make sense of all your options. Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or want to boost your chances of having a successful fertility treatment, working with a fertility coach can benefit you and your partner.



They Provide Emotional Support

Struggling with infertility can make you feel isolated and vulnerable. While you may (and hopefully do) have supportive friends and family, it can still be helpful to speak with a professional. While family and friends often mean well, hopeful words and advice often fall on deaf ears and can cause more harm than good. 

Your fertility coaching session will take place in a 100% safe and supportive space, where you are free to open up and discuss any and all of the emotions you are feeling. 

Opening up about these feelings can help you reduce stress, which is linked with decreased fertility. Strengthening the mind-body connection through fertility coaching can help turn off the “stress response” and help return the body (hormone levels, blood pressure, heart rate to its natural state.


They Give You that Work

Your coach will work with you to find suitable coping strategies to help you deal with the stress of conceiving and if you are going through IVF. Following your coaching sessions, you will be armed with tools to combat negative self-talk and emotions, self-sabotage, and self-limiting beliefs. 

You will be encouraged to uncover your strengths and get your confidence back. Fertility coaches understand and emphasize the importance of a holistic approach. Successful treatment needs to address more than just the physical aspects of infertility. The power of emotions, thoughts, beliefs, spirituality, and the mind-body connection can’t be ignored.  

Studies show that mind-body strategies can improve both psychological symptoms and pregnancy rates. 




They Set Realistic Goals

Every pregnancy journey is different. A fertility coach recognizes this and helps you set goals that fit your situation, at whichever point you are at in your journey. Your coach will help you better understand and take charge of your reproductive health and overall well-being. 

Trying to conceive can take over your life, and your coach can help you maintain life balance and reduce stress, all while guiding you toward your goals.


They Restore Hope

When you’ve been going through the same emotions and frustrations cycle after cycle, it can be easy to lose hope and feel like you have no control over your situation. With the help of a fertility coach, you can regain a sense of control and hope. 

With the emotional support, coping strategies, and realistic goals and conception plan you’ve received, you’ll feel better prepared to face the challenges you may encounter. By reshaping negative thoughts and emotions associated with the struggles of infertility and focusing on your strengths.
