And relax

I listen regularly to this recording from hynotherapist Suzanne Robichaud – always through headphones, on my comfortable sofa.

Guided hypnotherapy and meditations help to quieten my inner chatterbox, soothe my jumpy monkey mind.

As I listen, I breathe deeper and let go of control. I begin to trust that IVF can work out for Paul and me.

“But there’s no hard evidence that relaxation or hypnotherapy will improve your chances,” says the monkey. “Where are the studies? The guarantees?”

Thankfully, my intuition wins. As we prepare for the final stage of IVF, our embryo transfer, I know serenity is trustworthy.
