Why MindFul IVF?

There is no denying that doing IVF is not what you wanted. But now that it looks like that's what going to happen - let's make sure that you are as prepared as you can be!

We believe that preparation is key to managing during Fertility Treatment, and preparation means knowing what's coming, understanding what's going on, and having tools to manage for all the bits you can't control. So many of our clients tell us that they wish they had found us earlier in their treatment. Imagine what it would feel like to embark on your IVF journey feeling prepared, knowing the in's and out's of what's coming and feeling emotionally balanced, optimistic and grounded? Well that’s what the foundations of this program are built on! This program is designed to help you become mindfully in tune with your treatment, body, thoughts and feelings, whilst helping you to understand the scientific process behind what's going on.

FAQ

  • Is there a conflict of interest?

    No! Unlike lots of other IVF information you will find, this course has not been sponsored or funded by any IVF clinics or pharmaceutical companies.

  • Shouldn't my IVF clinic / Fertility Specialist be preparing me?

    Your clinic will give you information about your treatment plan, but unfortunately many patients feel unsupported and un-informed though-out their treatment. This is why we have created this program. This program will prepare you for IVF, help you understand your treatment, manage your expectations and give you actionable tools to support yourself and advocate for yourself throughout your treatment

  • How long will it take me to do the course?

    There are 6 hours of video content in this program and 3 LIVE sessions spread over a month. As soon as you sign up to the program you will get access to everything so you can skip ahead to the bits you need right now, and come back to the other bits later. You will have lifetime access to the content so you can come back any time, and you will also have lifetime access to the MindFul IVF community.

  • How is this course different to anything else?

    This course provides behind the scenes information about what goes on in an IVF cycle including images of embryo development, and equipment used as well as explanations of treatments and procedures. In addition to the science aspects of this program, you will also be guided through Fertility Hypnotherapy, with audios that you can download and use throughout your cycle to support your mental health and understand aspects of the mind-body connections that are so important for your wellbeing during treatment.

  • Is this program suitable for other countries? or only Australia?

    This information in this program is 100% suitable to ANY IVF cycle, anywhere in the world. There will be differences in your individual treatment plans, but there are foundations to any IVF cycle that are the same no matter where in the world you are. The mind-body connections apply to all human beings, no matter your culture or country of residence.
