Manifestation works on the principle that how you feel creates energy, sends energy and attracts energy, so what you send out into the world…how you think, feel & believe… comes right back to you. And whether that sounds a bit woo, new or the spark of magic you 100% need?

This is how to manifest pregnancy!


In this article, I’m going to share 7 simple ways to manifest getting pregnant! I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist who specialises in Fertility and the cross-over between neuroscience, hypnosis, meditation and manifestation is AMAZING! So let’s dive deeper… And learn how to manifest a baby!


How does manifestation work?

When you feel good you notice what’s good, and when you feel negative or less than ‘good’, you notice what’s bad. As though you create your own reality – like choosing to follow an upwards spiral or a downwards spiral…expect good things, they come to you, expect the worst, that comes instead.

And whilst it’s ridiculous to say it’s as simple as want it enough & you get it?

We are not passive recipients of the world around us

So the way you see yourself, your life, your experiences, your situation, and the world around you directly affects how you feel and the way you interpret & respond to EVERY SINGLE MOMENT.

Manifestation is powerful.

And the parallels between manifestation & hypnotherapy are profound… 


Manifestation dates back as far as ancient hinduism, but as soon as you start looking at modern neuroscience, the logic starts to become more clear.

But it’s not a hard and fast rule that means that if you worry about your fertility, you’ll stop conception happening!

And don’t fall into the trap of self-blame.

I’ve worked in hypnosis for fertility, conception and birth for years…

Both conception and birth come from a place of LOVE…the calming parasympathetic nervous system…and among others, the hormone Oxytocin! So whilst anxiety, stress and negative forecasting won’t STOP you getting pregnant, they definitely don’t help and there are studies that have shown this.

So whatever path your fertility journey is taking? Self-care and self-love can help.

Manifesting my own pregnancy

My own fertility journey left me like a tightly coiled spring. Tears of empty grief and the torture of not knowing. I resented every pregnant person around me and felt like I was being robbed.

‘Unexplained infertility’ felt like a curse and yet with nothing physically wrong, and stress levels SO HIGH? I’m not surprised I didn’t get pregnant!

But that changed the moment I turned to Chinese Medicine & Hypnotherapy!

Chinese Herbal Medicine brought my body into balance. And Hypnotherapy got my ‘fertility mind’ on side.

I learnt to:

  • Calm my central nervous system
  • Create inner peace
  • Discover acceptance and space
  • Connect with the fertility part of my subconscious mind
  • Trust my fertility to follow my lead

And it finally felt like WHEN not IF

I could literally manifest my own pregnancy.

I was struggling to conceive my second child. Hypnosis allowed me to release my mental barriers, transform my mindset & release the pressure and control I was putting on myself and my body. Within a few months I felt empowered to live my life for me again, trust the process, and we fell pregnant shortly after.

1. Be clear on what you want

It’s a baby, of course it is, but what else?

My clients tell me they want peace, space to breathe, to live life to the full again, to focus on the little things and so much more. So if you have found yourself in a place of anxiety or worry, ask yourself what you positively want to feel instead.

  • Name it
  • Visualise it
  • Feel it
  • Remember when you last had it
  • What would your day look like if you felt this ‘magic’ starting tomorrow?

The desire to have a baby is STRONG and it’s biological. But it’s just the start!

Becoming a parent is life changing. And while it won’t happen overnight, you’ll be juggling childcare arrangements, helping with homework, and your house will be full of teenagers as you repeatedly yell “open your curtains, make your bed, when did you last have a shower?!

2. Ask the Universe to give you what you want

Tell the universe what you want, why you want it and ask for help. Your own personal beliefs may affect how you go about this and where you place that message. Here are a few options:

  • The Universe
  • Mother Nature
  • Angels
  • Guardian Angel
  • Spirit Guide
  • Spirit Baby
  • A loved one in spirit
  • Saint Gerard (saint of pregnancy and childbirth)
  • Saint Antony of Padua (saint of pregnancy and fertility)

There is no need to believe in angels, spirit or any religion to manifest. You have the freedom to place your wish wherever you feel comfortable. And if in doubt, the easiest place to start is probably mother nature or the universe. But if you feel a spiritual connection, or a religious pull, then you have lots of lovely options.

I’ve always found myself naturally placing work based requests to the universe and the more personal to spirit. With a family history of mediumship I know my loved ones well enough to keep them close to my heart but completely out of business!


3. Create space in your life and your mind for baby

I once worked with a fertility hypnotherapy client who on her kitchen cupboard had pinned a handwritten piece of paper which read “I am having a baby in 2017”. In her first session she told me how much time she had taken to carefully choose her sperm donor. Her first round of IVF had not been successful. And helping to keep her mind clear, had cleared space in her home in the hope that she might meet her dream man. She had literally made space for him!

I didn’t tell her at the time, but my heart told me this space was for baby and sure enough, using IVF Hypnosis, she fell pregnant on her very next round of IVF. She has sent me a Christmas card every year since. And it wasn’t long before she told me she had found her true love as well!

I’m not saying that all you need to do is clear a few draws. But having a baby will take up time in your life, room in your home, space in your heart and a lot of energy and love!

So take a look around your life now as it is – I bet it’s busy!

By becoming conscious of your ‘busy’ you can start to be conscious of your space.

Here are 4 simple tips:

  • Take a moment and allow yourself to breathe.
  • Stop and notice where your shoulders are, if you are carrying tension, let them relax, find the stillness in the moment.
  • Notice the quiet moments of not doing, and be pleased…they are a gift.
  • Quit procrastinating the small stuff and get it done. Procrastination needlessly drains your energy, but achieving those wins is liberating!
  • Declutter, you know where the stuff builds up or sits unused – that’s the place to start

And when you’ve created the space, big or small, take time to feel the positive shift.

4. Surround yourself with people who bring you happiness

Love and birth (and breastfeeding) are powered by the hormone Oxytocin. You produce Oxytocin when you smile, are around people you like, pass and receive kind words, thoughtful connections, laughing, singing and even stroking a fluffy pet.


And you know the people in your life that don’t help!

Because some people carry negativity, and it can drain you emotionally. Their negativity is a reflection of their internal world and doesn’t need to be reflected back at them by you.

So allow yourself to emotionally step away, preserve yourself and your emotional energy – it’s too important to give away to these negative people!


Imagine yourself being cushioned by a beautiful calming colour that reflects that negativity away or surrounded by a wall of mirrors that does the same… Now when you notice negative energies on others, you can do so from a place of observing their problem, not engaging with it.


Steph enabled me to completely relax and helped me find peace in the present moment amidst a very challenging time. This ultimately helped me achieve my objective!

5. Let go of negativity that caused you stress in the past

Past events cannot be changed and raking over them time and time again doesn’t help. Instead, it just reaffirms the neural pathways and makes you better at focusing on the negative. So choose to step mindfully away and let the past be in the past.

If you are struggling to move on by yourself, it might be helpful to work with a Clinical Hypnotherapist, psychotherapist or CBT Counsellor.

I have helped my fertility clients cope after:

  1. miscarriage & bereavement
  2. marital infidelity & relationship problems
  3. mother-daughter emotional wounds
  4. gaslighting and bullying
  5. work stress
  6. family fall outs
  7. single or complex trauma…

I work holistically with Solution Focused methods including Clinical Hypnotherapy, Parts Therapy, Psychotherapy and for trauma & phobia; gentle Rewind Therapy .


I read that “hypnosis is meditation but with a goal,” so I wanted to give it a try. Steph empowered me to look within and I was able to unearth amazing insights into why I wasn’t ready to get pregnant, and what it would take to be ready! After 6 months of working with Steph, I was truly ready to get pregnant and the next month, I got pregnant! I look forward to seeing Steph again as I prepare for a calm and informed birth. I am so much less afraid of childbirth, and I have Steph to thank for that.


6. Reframe your limiting beliefs

I work with some astonishing fertility clients who show nothing but love and warmth to their pregnant colleagues and friends. “I’m pleased for them” they say, and they mean it… But me? I was not so generous!

It’s easy to blame yourself, feel worry, self-doubt, jealousy, even grief when you see others getting pregnant before you. And the stronger your negative emotions are, the more pregnancies you see!

It’s called a noticing bias (and it applies to all areas of life)

Have you ever noticed that when you buy a new car, you suddenly start seeing all the other cars on the road that are exactly the same as yours? When something is on your mind, you literally get better at seeing it!

When you catch yourself noticing all the signs pregnancy around you people, products, media, be kind to that voice… it’s your emergency voice talking, not your heart. So just allow yourself to notice the thought and step gently away – without judgement, without anger and without investigating it further.

Some of my tips in part 3. can help create space from the noticing bias.

And start noticing the other negative thoughts you have about fertility or pregnancy…

You’ll likely find they are quite cruel and it’s certainly not the way you would talk to a friend!

You might find yourself thinking things like “It will never be my turn”, “I’m not meant to have a baby” or “I don’t deserve to be pregnant” 

As a fertility hypnotherapist (who travelled her own difficult fertility journey) I can tell you that these thoughts do not help and they are not based in fact.

I have had clients fall pregnant after just one session (some even before they see me) and I’m convinced it’s HOPE that changes the chemistry.

You will never stop the critical mind from talking to you. Even when you do fall pregnant, it will still have something to nag you about. So learning to step away and not react is a skill you will have for evermore.


7. Put yourself first & take time for you

Did you know that you’re allowed to take time for yourself? It’s astonishing how many people don’t!

Pregnancy and parenthood will fill your life (and mind) with endless to-do lists that are hard to imagine until you get there.

So step into your here and now, enjoy it and take time to be good to you. And make a plan: just one day a month, or one evening a week. Put down your phone, your work, and all your infernal ‘shoulds’.

Make some time for relaxation and freeing your mind from stress, including the stress of fertility and the worry about trying to fall pregnant. Do whatever feels right for you:

  • Get out into nature
  • Do some journalling
  • Have a home spa day
  • Spend time with friends
  • Listen to music
  • Take time with your partner or loved one
  • Play football, basketball, tennis, climb, use your punch bag, dig the garden…whatever makes you feel ALIVE!

Whatever you do, let it be food for the soul. Creating these sparkling moments for you will help refresh, revitalise, recharge.

Best of all,  by learning the value of self care, you’ll find it easier to centre yourself through pregnancy, connect more deeply with your growing baby and create a calmer bonding journey.
