I love doing these round ups! Letting you in on what is exciting, new and thought provoking in the world of fertility. Yesterday I was contacted by Kaite McGrew – a Spiritual Coach, Author, Speaker and creator of “Six Sacred Shifts to Embrace Your Fertility” which is a free audio coaching program that is available to women seeking to become pregnant – this program works with the mind-body connection and goes beautifully with any other fertility treatment/program – the goal of the six-week coaching program is to support women in re-framing their experience of trying to become pregnant, and to relieve them from stress, and to allow them to contextualize the goal of becoming pregnant within the larger framework of their lives. It is a non-denominational spiritual program that works with women of any faith, or women who are not particularly spiritual, but would like to bring a spiritual context into their quest for pregnancy.
The program is delivered via weekly emails that contain links to audio segments, written exercises, etc. and it is completely without charge of any kind. The program available on a donation only basis, but there is no donation required, and anyone who wants to enjoy the program is welcome to do so.
I am also learning about Circle+Bloom – which is a mind/body program to help support people who are going through infertility. The Circle+Bloom program is getting a lot of buzz – and has already been put into place in various centers around the United States. The basics of the program is listening for 15 minutes a day – to audio tapes that will relax and support you during any stage of your fertility journey. It’s all about stress reduction and putting your health back into your hands. So jack into the Circle+Bloom Website and learn more on your own. It is rich, and full of information as well as giving you the opportunity sample the program.
While I am at it – I am going to circle around – and give two more shout out to products that I have already mentioned on The Fertility Advocate - The IVF Companion – which is also a way of taking your health back into your own hands – and being an empowered patient. So if you haven’t heard about the The IVF Companion (you can read my review here)- take a minute and check out the website. I also want to give another shout out to YES Baby - (which I reviewed here). Since that review – just like the IVF Companion - I am hearing lovely things about this conception friendly product from my readers. Yes Baby – says Yes to great sex -organically - while helping you to conceive. And you know how much I love great sex and conception!
I just have to give a shout out to Elizabeth Cohen at CNN – who just did a great piece on getting pregnant later in life called “Pregnant at 47: Can I Do That?” in her fabulous column “The Empowered Patient” on CNN/Health. Several prominent members of our community gave fabulous quotes including Dr. David Kreiner at East Coast Fertility and Dr. Jamie Grifo at NYU. And Kudos to RESOLVE:The National Infertility Association for their great new website – if you don’t know RESOLVE yet – and you are TTC – jack in!
There is so much going on in the world of fertility and sexuality – if you want to know more – please “Friend” me on Facebook – or follow me on Twitter @PamelaMadsen. I would love keeping in touch with you there too.
Have a great hot Memorial Day Weekend everyone! And I will see you all back here on Tuesday!
All best -
