Trying for a baby either naturally or using other forms of fertility treatment can cause couples a great amount of emotional and psychological distress. There could be a number of reasons for infertility including environmental effects such as pesticides in our food, poor nutrition, hormones leaking into the water table to name but a few. Also choosing to have children later in life when fertility levels are reduced.
Relaxation is absolutely essential. If stressed or worried, this can lead to an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system (ANS) which may alter the release of hormones responsible for regulating the maturation and release of the oocyte or egg cell. Psychologically, the more pressure we put on ourselves to conceive, this causes more stress and hamper the process of conceiving.

"After struggling with secondary infertility for 3 years and IVF treatment at a standstill with covid, I found Sarah's shiatsu on Facebook and thought I'd give it a shot. I couldn't believe the difference in one session. I felt lighter, I didn't feel anxiety, it was outstanding the difference after one session. Fast forward a few sessions and treatment for us finally went ahead and worked. We have just had our perfect baby boy, the missing puzzle piece for our family. I am so thankful to Sarah for her help in especially changing my mindset and allowing me to learn to let go of what I can't control. I firmly believe this went a long way to eventually having successful treatment! I will never be able to thank her enough. Highly recommend"
