Mind, Body, Spirit Connection

I am throwing the entire kitchen sink at my fertility journey. This is to say that I have signed up for the program I asked about in my last post.

It is The Seed Fertility Program ran by Danica Thornberry, an acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor in LA (www.seedfertility.com).

I have completed the first couple of units in the e-course and I have to say that I really like it so far. It combines video of her running a seminar from the Women’s Wellness Center in LA and journaling. She will also take me through dietary and nutritional choices for optimal fertility.

I have found that I was open in my first two rounds of IVF. When we got the positive beta, saw our bean on the ultrasound and heard his heartbeat, I was at ease thinking that our miracle had finally happened. When I lost him, I lost that openness and confidence in the process. My next two cycles were negative. I am hoping that this program will work to help me find it again. I know if anything, it will open me to remembering that I am a mother and I will mother a child. If it means through another IVF round, naturally, through adoption, or a gestational carrier-I will mother a child.

  1. Just stopping by via ICLW and really pleased to have found your blog, I am in a very similar mindset to you, although I’m a few years older. I am also throwing everything at my fertility, have totally changed my diet etc and am now on my first IVF cycle. The programme you’re following looks really interesting. I have tried acupuncture in the past and have just started a course of hypnotherapy, which is really enjoyable. So very sorry to read of your loss and really hoping – and knowing – that you will have your child one day. Hugs

  2. I’m interested too, especially about the openness. I’ve been so hesitant this time to be confident about my chances because the first time I was so totally confident that I really crashed and burned when it didn’t work. I don’t want to feel that way again, that mixture of total shock and total desperation – but if it means that I might have a better chance I should be willing to let myself be positive. What have your thoughts been about that so far?

  3. Here via ICLW….this program sounds really interesting! I’ve started really paying attention to all the factors that effect our infertility…not just the quality of our eggs. I am hoping to avoid IVF, by making the right changes in my life. I’d love to hear more about it, as you complete it.

  4. This sounds very interesting! The mind/body/spirit connection is so important, I’m sure it’s easy to lose that after a failed treatment. I hope it helps you achieve that connection again 🙂 Good luck!
