Three Women with Fertility Struggles Get Pregnant with Imagery

21 Mar
A woman writes: After nearly 2 years, one surgery, and one miscarriage, I am 13 weeks pregnant. And two of my friends - one undergoing IUI and the other IVF are now pregnant..
I don''t have a question. I actually wanted to let you know about the success of the Imagery for Fertility program. I bought it several months ago, when it was still called Imagery for Infertility. I''m so glad you changed the name - I fought hard not to label myself as infertile. We were just "fertility challenged."

Anyways, after nearly 2 years, one surgery, and one miscarriage, I am 13 weeks pregnant.

And the story doesn''t end there. I recommended this program to two of my friends - one undergoing IUI (Intra-Uterine Insemination) and the other undergoing IVF (In-Vitro Insemination). Both had been trying to get pregnant for over 2 years and both had unsuccessful fertility treatments. BOTH are now pregnant! Three of us cannot be coincidence! I firmly believe it was the visualization. Thank you!!!

Ed. Note: We were puzzled by a wild spike in interest for this audio program, until we heard from Harriet Rovner Ferguson, a dedicated fertility counselor, support group leader and author of Experiencing Infertility, who years ago helped so much with the accuracy and content of this audio. She writes,
Wanted to let you know that the CD was very favorably reviewed by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine''s latest newsletter, which goes out to a huge international membership composed of MDs, nurses, genetic counselors, mental health professionals, etc etc. basically anyone who specializes in infertility. Their website is www.asrm.org.

Now if we could only encourage some placebo controlled clinical trials testing the efficacy of guided imagery for infertility, I’m sure we’d see some statistically juicy outcomes! If you’re interested and are based at a university, hospital or clinical practice that has this capability, please let us know! We can help with the design and with the intervention and control condition. By all means, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
