Fertility Enhancement

The Birth Your Life® Fertility Enhancement program is a mind/body program combining several treatments to give you a comprehensive, holistic approach to identifying and dissolving emotional and energetic blocks to conceiving, carrying and delivering a baby and embracing the responsibilities of parenthood.

A major focus of the work is on releasing and resolving grief. Once that begins to shift, you will be able to be more present for everyday life, more able to reclaim your vitality and your joy.

This program can be helpful to those anywhere in the process of conceiving:
  • those exploring the idea of parenthood
  • those conceiving by natural means,
  • those dealing with unexplained infertility,
  • those receiving medically assisted treatments.
Fertility can be blocked or diminished by physical and emotional factors. Emotional ones include:
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Trauma, particularly sexual abuse
  • Feeling inadequate to the task of parenting
  • Being inadequately parented through neglect abuse, divorce, illness, death
  • Unresolved grief or guilt over pregnancy losses, miscarriages, abortions
  • Conflict about demands of parenthood, career, self-care
  • Ancestral patterns and messages
  • Societal messages.
We will start our work with an exploration of the stressors in your life, past trauma, what you know of your own birth process, how your mother experienced conception and pregnancy, how you were received into the world.

One outcome of the Fertility Enhancement program is that you may be at peace with not conceiving a child. Then your energy is available for other decisions: adoption, fostering, other creative endeavors.

Multi-Faceted Approach

I offer a combination of several holistic modalities. Each approach is effective in enhancing fertility. Combined, they are a potent package for boosting your vital energy and setting the stage for conception.

  • Energy Psychology techniques to work through the trauma, grief, beliefs and other issues that are limiting you and perhaps blocking conception. These techniques are designed to activate your own self-healing. They progress at your pace, are gentle, non-intrusive and help with specific issues as well as boost your vital energy. 
  • Rosen Method Bodywork-a gentle, deeply reaching hands-on work with an accompanying verbal interaction. This connection leads to awareness of what has been held, leading to release of muscle tension and its underlying emotional holding. You may feel deeply nurtured and also more deeply connected with your true self.
  • Energizing Routines, tailored to your specific needs. These include chakra balancing and some simple self-care exercises to balance your energy, boost your vitality and improve your mood. You can do these in just a few minutes a day.
You may choose to focus on one or two of these or experience a combination of all three.


One in six couples have difficulty conceiving when they want. Many times the cause can be determined and treated medically. However in up to 40% of the cases of infertility, the cause remains "unexplained," which means there is no known medical reason. "Unexplained" infertility can occur whether or not you have given birth previously.

If you are experiencing "unexplained" infertility, this approach may be the key to unlocking your infertility.

If you are receiving medical assistance to conceive, this approach can reduce your stress, depression and any emotional factors that could be contributing to your difficulty conceiving. This could help your body be more responsive to the medical treatments.


You are encouraged to make an initial treatment commitment of three sessions. Often significant resolution of your issues occurs in 3 to 8 sessions. The first session is 75 minutes, others may be 50 or 75, depending on your preference.

If you have significant trauma in your history, additional sessions may be needed to clear these.

If you are in a relationship, it could be beneficial for your partner to do some of this work, particularly the Energy Psychology component. This applies whether or not your partner intends to be a biological parent.

Generally sessions are held once a week. This may be accelerated in anticipation of ovulation or other factors.

If you are traveling from out of the area, you may schedule sessions over consecutive days.

The Energy Psychology work may be done over the telephone.

There is no guarantee that you will get pregnant.
