I myself have never really thought about fertility in greater depth until I started volunteering at Muma Nurture, from a young age we are almost conditioned to believe in this fairy-tale like dream of marrying someone we really truly love and having children. But nobody really raises the question of "what if?", what if things don't really go to plan, what if procreation isn't as easy as it's made out to be. The truth is, this is the case for many women. In 2016 statistics showed that one in eight women experienced infertility, or struggled to get pregnant for at least a year within the UK.
Upon doing research in to fertility and what can affect it I came across many different things; weight (being overweight or obese can reduce fertility but also being underweight can affect ovulation), smoking ( it can affect a woman's chance of conceiving), stress ( it can affect ones sex drive but also in more severe cases affect a woman's ovulation). This is where the importance of our charity comes in to place, many people struggle with fertility and don't realise that there is actually help out there and they are not alone, that help can be in the form of; hypnotherapy, reflexology or counselling, our charity offers all of these.
I find that it's always so easy to blame yourself for any inconvenience in life but I think all three of these types of therapy can help you look at the bigger picture and give you the support you need whilst doing so. You are not alone.
