Our Favorite Kind of Feedback – Another Baby on the Way

05 Aug

Another Health Journeys bambino is in the oven.  We loved getting this exuberant email, reporting the happy aftermath of using guided imagery (Help with Fertility) after a challenging time of IVF/embryo transfers that did not take…

Hello from a delirious, ecstatic pregnant lady.  My husband found your Fertility CD on Amazon.  We began listening to it faithfully each night.  

It had a healing effect.  I found the images comforting.  They touched me in a deep way while giving me perspective and patience.  I became calmer and definitely more optimistic.  We are both 38 years old and had been feeling a lot of pressure to have a baby.

My husband stopped worrying so much about my moods.  I am sure this was a much needed break for him.  We were both very worn out. Our moods were swinging from desperate to hopeless.
We had been through four expensive, stressful rounds of IVF (in vitro fertilization).  This was NOT a pleasant experience.  My husband and I argued as to how many more times we could put ourselves through it.   I wanted one more try.  He was ready to call it quits.

In the midst of this unpleasant debate, after 5 or 6 weeks of listening to the CDs, I got pregnant.  I am now 22 weeks pregnant.  This is really happening.  I just ordered the Pregnancy and Childbirth (please link and show cover) CDs.  I can’t wait to hear the images.

THANK YOU, from both of us for whatever those CDs did to help this happen.  We are over the moon.
