Piece of Minds





As Susan was a midwife early in her career, the opportunity of being able to offer a unique service in obstetrics appealed to her. She attended and completed a comprehensive hypnotherapy course covering all aspects of obstetrics.

Facts about infertility:

Approximately 1 in 7 couples have difficulty in conceiving a child;

Infertility affects both men and women;

Conditions affecting a woman’s fertility can include:

  • damage to the fallopian tubes;
  • ovulatory problems;
  • endometriosis;
  • conditions affecting the uterus;
  • a combination of factors;
  • no identifiable reason;
  • age – female fertility declines sharply after the age of 35;
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS);
  • gynaecological problems such as previous ectopic pregnancy or having had more than one miscarriage;
  • medical conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, and thyroid and bowel diseases;
  • lifestyle factors such as stress, being overweight or underweight, and smoking.


Conditions that may result in infertility in men include:

  • low sperm count or quality;
  • problems with the tubes carrying sperm;
  • problems getting an erection;
  • problems ejaculating;
  • having had inflamed testes (orchitis);
  • a past bacterial infection that caused scarring and blocked tubes within the epididymis as it joins the vas;
  • having received medical treatment such as drug treatment, radiotherapy or surgery – for example to correct a hernia, undescended testes or twisted testicles;
  • genetic problems;
  • diabetes;
  • lifestyle factors such as being overweight or having a job that involves contact with chemicals or radiation;
  • male fertility is also thought to decline with age, although to what extent is unclear. (HFEA, 2010).


Having fertility problems can be a very sensitive and emotional experience for you both as a couple. Before you consider hypnotherapy as a treatment you must first discuss this option with your GP. After clearance if you decide to chose this route contact me for further discussion.
