I truly believe that your mind has a direct impact on your body. I have been doing some research since I have been going through IVF on meditation, yoga and acupuncture. A new study published online in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that women who participate in mind-body training have a significantly higher pregnancy rate than women who don’t undergo training: 52% compared to 20%.
Here are some of the positive resources I have found and are using during my IVF cycle. I will continue to add to them throughout my journey.

- Circle + Bloom: A woman-owned business that cares deeply about helping other woman who are experiencing the emotional toll of trying to conceive. They are passionate about the mind-body connection and have created meditative fertility programs that are doctor recommended for all journey’s through conceiving (Natural, PCOS, FET, Relaxation for men) . I purchased the IVF/IUI Mind-Body Program, this program is meant to be used in combination with an advanced medicated cycle, which can be emotionally and physically draining. You will feel greater control over your fertility success. There are 18 different sessions including special sessions for the trigger/egg extraction, transfer procedure, and the two week-wait.

This is where I found the support group Resolve and where I could have the success rates of all the clinics in my area. A great read to gain knowledge and to be pro active. I highly recommend this book.
