I am so passionate about helping other women find a positive path by sharing what I have learnt from my own rollercoaster IVF journey. I want you to feel hopeful and excited for the future – so let’s do this!

I’ve never heard of fertility coaching before – what is it?

Fertility coaching provides super-specialised support for the fertility journey. Unlike your dear friends who struggle to understand where you are at and are either too awkward to talk to you about what you are going through or offer you the story of their sister’s, boyfriend’s cousin’s miracle conception under the banyan tree; a fertility coach has a deep understanding of the path you are on and can give you practical advice on how to navigate it. Just for the record I totally believe in miracles – just want them to happen in a concrete way for you!

Time with a fertility coach can focus on what is important to you.

This isn’t another clinical appointment where you have to absorb loads of technical information; sign a ton of paperwork and get out of the office as quickly as possible because there is a queue of other people waiting. Each coaching session allows you time and space to process information and to think about your next steps.

What is it like to work with you?

I look beyond the clinical aspects of your infertility to the bigger picture. Your medical team have got the science-bit and I will help you take care of everything else – and that everything else is pretty huge! My experience as a therapist, coach and woman who knows what it is like to ache for a baby will help us to hit the ground running as we look to connect and develop a plan to enable you to bring your A-game.

I work 1 to 1 with clients via Zoom or in person if we are neighbours! My particular specialism is IVF/ICSI/IUI and I have a range of packages specifically designed to support you in that process. You can tailor the experience to suit you and your schedule.

You may be just starting to explore the option of IVF and wondering what it might be like to go through it.  I can tell it like it is from the other side.

You might have undergone a number of cycles and want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to maximise your chances of success.  I can highlight any potential warning signals and enable you to navigate the wealth of research information that is out there.

You might want to be able to check-in a few times in the process or have weekly, in-depth, emotional support.  My therapeutic training means that I can help you find effective coping strategies for the journey.

What evidence is there that this works?

Expert research has confirmed how effective fertility coaching can be. For example, a study published in the Journal of Behavioural Medicine (20: 4) reported that participants in a support programme were more likely to have a child at 18 months after their coaching than those who did not receive the support.

Personal experience bears this out. I am delighted to have worked with some amazing women who have gone on to have successful pregnancies.

Here are some of the things they have said:

“Before working with Emma, I knew that I had a problem with my fertility but didn’t have the courage to confront or explore it. With her care and gentle guidance to help me find my way, I was able to become more in touch with my body and my mind, enabling me to take the steps I needed to manage my fears. Throughout the time I worked with her, I felt in control of the process and was able to explore whatever came up knowing that she would support me all the way… I am pleased to say that I gave birth to my wonderful daughter as a direct result of embarking on this journey with Emma, and went on to have a beautiful boy two years later.  I wish you all the best in your fertility journey, and highly recommend having Emma along with you” – Lisa

This sounds right up my street – when is the right time to start fertility coaching?

I work with women at all stages of their fertility journey – from “um, I might be thinking about having a baby some time in the future” to “I really need some help, I’m not sure I can face another IVF cycle”. Contact me today and we can make a plan to get you from crying in the toilets at your friend’s baby shower to crying for joy as the second blue line appears!

OK, I’m good to go. Can you give me the details of the packages I can choose from?

I offer every potential client a free Fertility MOT (1 hour).

We will get ‘under the bonnet’ so to speak (for those outside the UK an MOT is a thorough vehicle inspection!); highlight any red-flags arising from your experiences so far and think about how to turbo-charge your journey going forward.

We will take some time to think about which of three options is best for you:

 

Option 1: Strategy Session (2 hours)

Get out your journal and settle in with a hot cuppa! This is a laser-focused session to answer your questions, identify areas of needs and develop a customised action plan.

 

Option 2: Bespoke Support Package

This package offers 4 hour-long coaching sessions, scheduled at your own pace, to provide emotional support and practical advice throughout your fertility journey.

The programme can include:

  • Customised action plan
  • Techniques to optimise your experience
  • Advice on the supplements and nutritional changes that I have found to work
  • Details of current clinical research
  • Information on complementary therapies
  • 2 week wait strategies
  • Space to reflect and offload

Bonus – follow-up session

Option 3: Intensive Coaching Package

The intensive package offers in-depth and consistent support from before your first clinic appointment to test day and beyond.

We will arrange a weekly, 1 to 1, hour-long session to suit your schedule.  Between sessions, should you need me, you will have access to additional email support.

The programme can include:

  • Customised action plan
  • Email coaching when you need it
  • Techniques to optimise your experience
  • Advice on the supplements and nutritional changes that I have found to work
  • Details of current clinical research
  • Information on complementary therapies
  • 2 week wait strategies
  • Space to reflect and offload

Bonus – follow-up session
