Successful Treatment for Infertility
A woman, age 38, asked for support while going through fertility treatments. She and her husband had been trying to get pregnant for 3 years. An admitted perfectionist who pushed herself hard, she was feeling extremely stressed by the whole process, by her own emotions, and by her demanding job.

This client was very insightful. Many people are not aware of the connection between stress and fertility, yet it is widely acknowledged that many couples who have worked hard at getting pregnant finally succeed only after they have given up and started adoption procedures, as if taking the pressure off turns fertility on. Whatever the physiological factors are for a given couple, emotions like worry and disappointment combined with the strain of everyones expectations can take a heavy toll. Guilt may be one of the most powerful and painful emotions in this regard. Many women feel guilty about an earlier abortion; deep down, they may regard infertility as their penalty or punishment. Others feel guilty about a miscarriage, even though it was not in their control. Both men and women may feel guilty about being the less fertile one, or they may feel badly about a habit, like smoking, that they believe has contributed to their fertility problems.

In a 6-session hypnosis program with this client, I addressed self-forgiveness, perfectionism, ending the internal worry and debate, developing a positive attitude, and visualizing a successful outcome, as well as other themes. A great deal of emotional release took place with a hypnotic technique directing the womans unconscious mind to take her back to the source of certain tensions so she could let go of them. The beauty of this method is that it can be helpful even when the conscious mind remains unaware of any specific information. The unconscious mind does what it needs to do, and the positive effects can be felt. I also taught this client skills for self-care. By the end of 6 sessions, she was feeling much more relaxed, at peace, and in control of her process.

Perhaps two years later, I received a lovely note from her, along with a photo of her new baby. Although she had already written me a nice appreciation when we concluded our work, she now wrote, Thanks for all of your help and support. I cannot even begin to express how much the visualization exercises, especially the ones when I was under hypnosis, got me through the egg donor process and pregnancy.
