What is Mindfulness for Fertility?
If you are struggling to conceive and feeling depressed, anxious, isolated, and out of control, you are not alone. It has been well documented that women with infertility experience high levels of stress. Studies have shown that a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) for Fertility can help decrease your emotional distress and may lead to higher pregnancy rates.
Mindfulness for Fertility is an online, 8-week, evidence based, experiential program following the famous Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum.
Alda and Stephanie create a safe, supportive, nurturing online space where you can connect and share with other people going through an experience like yours.
What will you learn?
The program consists of:
- an orientation
- eight weekly (2½ hour) classes
- a 6-hour Day of Mindfulness Retreat between weeks five and six
This highly participatory and supportive program offers:
