Support through Your Fertility Process
I support you to your optimum fertility. I assist you to discover what it means to you to be at your most fertile state (what this looks and feels like), in the making of tough decisions, and helping you deal with the emotions of this journey and managing your anxiety and stress that often accompanies it.
If you are going through any Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART – a fancy way of saying a medical process that helps you fall pregnant) my approach complements your medical procedure, and can greatly enhance its positive outcome. I work with you to support you through your medical procedures and do not in any way interfere with your Doctor’s or Physician’s diagnosis or recommendations.
You lead the process through identifying what is happening in your process, and exploring what you need to work on the most. Fertility is a mystery – there are many things that may impact our fertile state. In addition to working directly on your body, there are other aspects that may influence your fertility state.
These can be deepening your relationship with yourself and your partner, really experiencing your family and friends supporting you on this journey, releasing and becoming aware of what in your deep underlying belief structure could be holding you back from becoming parents. It could also be a journey to connect with your birth process and how you experienced coming into the world. Exploring if you have unconsciously picked up on other’s belief structures that are impacting you?
And the journey to self nurture and wellness – what does this mean to you? Are you aware of the impact of diet and stress on your body and hormones and how this affects your fertility and ability to sustain a pregnancy?
Are you able to grieve and release the miscarriage/ termination/ decision/ action of the past and love yourself and believe in yourself now? Are there perhaps secrets that are holding you back from full intimacy and a growing relationship with your partner?
Many of these issues can be addressed and released bringing about a sense of renewal, energy and excitement about your life and full possibilities.
The format that I use is based on the Fertile Body Method. This uses a framework of getting clear on your goals, restoring balance to factors that may be influencing your fertility, resolving issues that may be impacting on you, enhancing your body and mind and connecting this with your optimum fertility goal, preparing you for what lies ahead in the form of treatments, parenting, pregnancy and birth, and supporting you to maintain changes that you have made and throughout your processes. With gentle support and guidance through coaching techniques and your choice of processes I support you to get your body, mind and spirit in balance and harmony. The processes we have as options include self work, journaling, visualizations, body work, cranio-sacral therapy, aromatherapy massage, and reflexology. In addition through our coaching you may identify other options that you can source from other practitioners or resources.
Irrespective of the outcome of the journey you will be offered support and guidance as you make your way forward.

“I engaged Jeanne as my fertility coach prior to embarking on my IVF journey. As I’m based in Cape Town, we conducted our sessions via Skype. I was initially sceptical as to how well that would work, but needn’t have worried, as Jeanne’s professional, warm and incisive coaching style bridged the technology gap completely, and it felt like we were in the same room. I am so thankful for the work we did together, as it empowered me during a stressful and potentially disempowering time where things are being done ‘to’ you. Through connecting with my emotions, setting goals, and positive visualisations, I was able to approach the process calmly and positively, and to connect with my babies in utero. Most importantly, I felt really supported and nurtured by Jeanne throughout. I am now the proud mother of beautiful, healthy twins!”Amanda
