We got this wonderful report from a woman who was struggling with fertility issues

08 Feb
We got this wonderful report from a woman who was struggling with fertility issues and who used guided imagery to help process her own feelings but also to re-establish a supportive connection with her husband..
Struggles with fertility are often so hard to talk about and can create such a distance between partners. I found using guided imagery to be an excellent tool for creating a bridge toward re-establishing an emotional connection, and also for help with individual emotional processing.

As a result of my experiences, I highly recommend guided imagery to all women and their partners who are experiencing difficulties with conceiving and/or who have experienced perinatal loss.

I used the imagery as an adjunct to talk therapy. I was taken aback by the way it enabled me to connect to a level of emotion I hadn''t previously acknowledged or experienced. The affirmations segment was especially helpful to my husband, giving him a more significant understanding of my internal, emotional experience. This was of great help to me.
