FERTILITY COACHING

Female Patient

A fertility coach is a person who can help support people through their journey to parenthood.  They can walk a couple through everything from natural conception to assisted reproductive technology like IVF, and even adoption or surrogacy.

 

Fertility coaching uses mind-body approaches to process the emotions, release mental blocks, nourish the body and relax the mind.  These methods lower cortisol levels, the stress hormone, so that you can better cope with the stress involved in the struggle to parenthood.  This allows pregnancy to be more likely to occur. 

HOW DOES FERTILITY COACHING HELP IMPROVE FERTILTY?

In a Harvard University study, it was found that women who utilize a mind-body program were over twice as likely to conceive!

For the women who participated in the program, the clinical pregnancy rate was 52%, compared to 20% in the control group, a statistically significant difference.  All of these women became pregnant without the need for assisted reproductive technology within 12 months regardless of their age or medical diagnoses. 

“Studies have demonstrated that women with infertility who learn a variety of skills designed to lower stress, improve lifestyle habits, and decrease isolation experience significantly higher pregnancy rates than women who do not learn such skills.”

– Dr. Alice Domar, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School

METHOD OF COACHING

The Creative Fertility Coaching Program is designed for women to go on a personalized "Fertility Voyage".  There are a variety of treatment options (see below for the "Menu of Services") that will be available, ranging from traditional talk therapy to soul retrieval.  The client is the captain of the ship for this voyage, so she decides the direction in which we travel based on her own inner compass, with the knowledge that she knows what is best for herself and her baby.  I will take the role of the first mate, who supports the captain with providing information and showing her the various directions she can choose to take. 

The program expects a three-month commitment to start.  The program ends when a baby is firmly on the way into a parent's arms.  This program will enable a woman to nourish herself in myriad ways to prepare her Body, Mind and Spirit for pregnancy.  I will encourage a client to see other practitioners who were vetted by me within The Whole Fertility Network (www.WholeFertility.com).  These practitioners can provide the mother with expert knowledge of body-centered therapies that have been scientifically proven to help with fertility, such as acupuncture and nutrition.  I have the know-how to support women with the Mental, Emotional, Energetic and Spiritual aspects of burgeoning parenthood.  With Hypnotherapy, I can help a women to uncover whatever mental blocks have prevented pregnancy from being successful in the past.  With Qigong Meditation and Talk Therapy, she can calm the mind to help sooth the emotional struggles involved with the process. With Qigong Body-Energy Therapy, she can open the energy channels within the body so that she will be a more ready vessel to embody an awaiting baby's soul.  With Ritual Work, she can finally let go of all past losses and say goodbye to lost Spirit Babies to clear the path for a fully alive thriving human child to be born to her.  

The Creative Fertility course will include hypnotherapy and Qigong Meditation Instruction.  There are two other methods of treatment that I would suggest, which would be acupuncture and nutritional support.  These would be done by other practitioners that I can recommend through the Whole Fertility Network.  The rest of the program will be tailored by you based on which treatments excite you the most from my "Menu of Services."  It's a "choose your own adventure" style of therapy.  It's empowering.  It's creative.  It's Creative Fertility!

ABOUT PRACTITIONER

Hi.  I'm Laya Laboe, the founder of Creative Fertility and The Whole Fertility Network.  I am a fertility coach who guides women on personalized "fertility voyages," where a woman can experience being the captain of her own customized journey towards Fertility and Motherhood. 

My passion for healing arts and fertility came to life over 20 years ago and was further developed during my own fertility struggles.  I was older when I was ready to start a family, therefore I was labeled with "geriatric" pregnancies by doctors because I was over 35 years old. 

 

I suffered two miscarriages before I birthed my two daughters when I was 37 and 40 years old.  For my second miscarriage, my doctor recommended that I take Cytotec, a pregnancy termination drug.  It caused heavy bleeding  for five days.  It didn't work.  I had to then take another round of a similar medicine, Misoprostol.  I lost so much blood during that second round of treatment that I was nearly admitted to the Emergency Room.  The treatment still didn't remove all traces of my miscarriage from my uterus.  I finally needed a Dilation and Curettage (D&C) abortion procedure to remove all the deceased fetal tissue.  I was in physical and emotional agony, bleeding heavily and miscarrying for three entire weeks due to this course of medical treatments. 

The weekend after my D&C, I was scheduled to attend a Mind-Body Fertility Connection® Hypnosis training.  Initially, I felt too sad, fragile and vulnerable to attend, but I forced myself to go, and I am SO glad that I did!  During the training, I was able to heal what I originally viewed as a cut-up scarred uterus and say good bye to the Soul that once occupied by body.  I got pregnant the very next month, which lead to the birth of my first daughter!

My education and personal experience have enable me to be an empathetic cheerleader in your corner, supporting you to nourish your body, mind and emotions to be fortified for this voyage of a lifetime.

I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Qigong Instructor who specializes in fertility and embodiment.  I am a Mind-Body Fertility Connection® Practitioner and a Qigong Healing Touch Practitioner with 16 years of Qigong and Tai Chi training and 7 years of Hypnotherapy training. I am registered as a non-licensed psychotherapist in the Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs.
