I have spent eighteen years working and studying the fields of fertility and adoption and believe I can save you a lot of time and anguish. I believe in a holistic approach, where we look at all aspects of your life and how fertility is affecting your world; physically, emotionally, your career, socially, home environment, marriage, spiritually and more. Together we hone in on where you could use the most support and guidance. I use my social work skills as an empathic listener and as a resource guide for providers who help enhance fertility. I utilize my yoga background to offer mindful tools.
As a fertility coach, I help women create an Individualized Fertility Plan (IFP) which includes: a list of fertility experts, a safe workout routine, mindful eating techniques and tools to calm the mind. I use visualizations, yoga poses, meditations and positive thinking tools to re-frame your current experience of sadness, disappointment and anxiety to one of a calm heart and mind. Most importantly, I guide you to find compassion for yourself and the myriad of feelings that trying to make a family creates.
I offer three different packages, where we continue to work together until you get the results you are looking for. The programs are the "Transform Your Fertility" Program, the "Revamp Your Fertility" Program and the "Tune-up Your Fertility" Program.
The "Transform Your Fertility" Program
Fertility for your body, mind and spirit
You are a woman who wants to leave no stone unturned in your journey to your baby. This extensive fifteen sessions package will teach you tools to prepare your mind; exercise techniques, medical, and alternative practitioners to prepare your body; and meditation techniques to prepare your spirit. When these three elements are all in place, your chances of success for a full term healthy pregnancy are best.
The "Revamp Your Fertility" Program
Fertility for your body and mind
“Chance favors the prepared mind”, said famous scientist Louis Pasteur. This ten sessions program is for the client who wants to take control of the process and do all that she can to prepare her mind and her body for success. Not only will you learn tools to create the right mental state, but you will also be guided on the critical path of selecting the right medical and alternative practitioners for your particular situation.
The "Tune-Up Your Fertility" Program
Fertility for your body
Learning to stay calm is the best thing you can do to increase your chances of pregnancy. You’re on your way to becoming a mom and you could use some support as you try to conceive with or without medical intervention. This five sessions tune up is for the client who wants a quick look at what has been done and a few ideas on what has yet to be explored in increasing her odds of a positive pregnancy test.
If you'd like to explore working with me I'd be happy to do a 45 minute session, just click here. Some clients start with the "Tune-Up Your Fertility" Program and upgrade if they like how things are progressing.
I work with clients from all over the U.S. and internationally as well. I use Skype to connect with clients who live outside of Chicago, Illinois. If you live in the Chicagoland area and wish to meet in person we can arrange that as well.
