Self-esteem and fertility
The fertility of women and men can be affected by physical well-being and lifestyle choices. I think most of us know that drinking alcohol, smoking and eating badly, can make it harder to get pregnant, but were you aware of the impact that psychological well-being can have on fertility? Struggling to become pregnant can be very stressful and lead to psychological issues, with feelings of failure and loss resulting in anxiety, stress and low self esteem. Psychological issues, and the way you feel, can then further affect your fertility, causing hormone disturbances and sexual dysfunction.
If you’re struggling to get pregnant, or in the process of having fertility treatments, proper support through this time can be helpful for dealing with the psychological consequences.
Muma Nurture can offer hypnotherapy, counselling, holistic therapies, support groups and workshops.
Hypnotherapy has been found to be very effective for low self-esteem, as it works on the subconscious to change negative thinking and encourage more positive thoughts and support.
Counselling is a talking therapy where the counsellor acts as an empathic facilitator, often empowering the client by listening without judgment and acknowledging their experience.
Holistic comes from the Greek word holos, meaning ‘whole’, so rather than just addressing an immediate symptom, a holistic therapist will look for the underlying cause, considering physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual states of health and wellbeing. They will then work to restore the body’s natural balance
