Steph McGee

I’m a Trauma Informed Clinical Hypnotherapist on a mission to help. Hypnosis feels like a magic wand. But in truth? The real magic is you.

I found the strangest way to get pregnant, and it lay deep within my subconscious mind.

Because when I started to wonder if there was more to getting pregnant than just the physical aspects or my stress levels?

And that maybe…my inability to conceive was caused by my mind?

Something made me wonder if Hypnotherapy could help?

And it turned out it could…

Because Hypnosis found a part of my unconscious mind that helped me get pregnant.

 

Hypnotherapy would help me find emotional balance, calm my spiralling stress levels and have a successful pregnancy.

In short – Hypnosis for fertility helped me get pregnant!

So in this article, I will share how the hypnosis worked. And how now, as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I can help you with your fertility journey as well.

 

And since then I’ve helped other women all over the world who’ve instinctively felt that their subconscious is holding them back. 

Examples have included:

  • Not falling pregnant when everything but their mind said they could
  • Feeling a resistance to motherhood
  • Deep routed reluctance to jeopardize a flourishing career
  • Lingering teenage fear (or shame) of pregnancy
  • AND SO MUCH MORE!

These subconscious messages have presented in the form of metaphor, shape, colour, words, feelings, emotions.

And in case you want to work with me?

I won’t share what my clients subconscious parts are, what they look like or the resolutions we’ve found…I will need to know how you uniquely feel.

And suffice to say, I am the happy hypnotherapist who has a phone FULL of baby photos!!!!

Hypnosis for Fertility

I couldn’t get pregnant. And long story short. I found a Hypnotherapist who sounded stunned when I said I wanted hypnosis for fertility…She sounded like I was the first person who’d ever asked!

But I soon had a positive pregnancy test.

Surprised?

Absolutely!

Roll the years forward (and my second baby born) I left my demanding career to become a clinical hypnotherapist, and guess what?

Now I use hypnosis to help people like you, on their fertility journey.

So in this article we’ll explore how hypnotherapy helped me get pregnant, and how I can help you.

I couldn’t get pregnant

And I don’t need to tell you how painful that was, because I did it all:

The charts, recording my Basal Body Temperature (BBT) & Ovulation. I ‘looked after myself’ and gave up the jacuzzi at my gym. Had my bloods taken, my fallopian tubes checked. Ate all the right things fertility foods and avoided junk food, and fridge cold foods.  Persuaded my stubborn husband to have a sperm check. And waited months for a Clomid prescription. I won’t go on – I’m sure you know.

But with my first pregnancy ending in miscarriage. And feeling like I’d been hit by a wall of infertility caused by nothing in particular?

Diagnosed with unexplained fertility and no real answers?

IVF should have been the next logical step…

But worried by the thought of spiralling IVF bills.

And wanting to give myself the best chance of conceiving as the stress and grief pilled up.

I wondered if pregnancy would ever be possible when I felt so bad?

And I wondered if the answer was in my mind?

Can your mind stop you getting pregnant?

And how can I get pregnant from my mind?

I’m not the only one who’s wondered this. And as a Hypnotherapist I work with a large number of both women and men who feel that their:

  • anxiety or stress
  • depression or low mood
  • busy career
  • self doubt
  • lack of self care
  • or even their past, is holding them back?

I’ve worked with people who’ve felt blocked by trauma, loss, termination, negative self beliefs, relationship problems, out of control stress response, anxiety about miscarriage and fear of pregnancy or birth (tocophobia).

And people who just feel thier is a subconscious blocks to fertility that they just can’t describe.

So I looked for a Fertility Hypnotherapist

Because whether my hubby & I decided to go down the IVF route or not?

I wanted to know my mind was ready to conceive

Can infertility be caused by the unconscious mind?

Let’s be clear about this.

Infertility in most cases? Is caused by physical factors such as endometriosis, PCOS, low sperm count, or physical abnormalities in the male or female reproductive tracts.

But that said?

This still leaves about 25% of infertility cases in the UK categorised as unexplained infertility. And this is where hypnotherapy for fertility with a practioner like me, can be particularly helpful. (bsch.org.uk)

Because we no longer think of the body and mind as two separate states. We now know that they are connected. And each one effects the other. Positively. Negatively.

Stress in the mind leads to stress in the body.

And stress in the body leads to stress in the mind.

Stress causes changes within the body, including the production of the stress hormone prolactin which suppresses ovulation.

7 Fertility Hypnotherapy Tips

If one more person says RELAX

ARGHHHH!

Relax and you’ll get pregnant, it drove me nuts.

But it does happen. It happens to my clients!

With pregnancy advice usually being as unhelpful as:

‘I joined a tennis team’

‘I went on holiday’

‘I forgave my husband’

But this is where hypnotherapy steps into its own. Because a long fertility journey causes worry and stress. It leads to negative forecasting and grief “I’ll never have a baby” or “I don’t deserve to have a baby” and all these negative thoughts lead to even more stress hormones. Even active thinking causes stress!!

So taking a holiday or joining a tennis team might be a drop in the ocean.

And you need something more tangible:

Like a good course of Hypnotherapy to get you where you need to be.

But let’s not be too mean about stress!

SOME STRESS IS HELPFUL.

Because a little bit of stress can motivate you, it can even excite you! Stress can get you moving forward and it get you signing up to Hypnotherapy.

But too much stress. Over a prolonged period of time, is not good for fertility.

So there I was

All my ducks in a row…except one

My Chinese Herbal Doctor said there was nothing stopping me from getting pregnant. He even said my body was ready for pregnancy. My nutrition was good, and with Chinese fertility herbs & acupuncture, my cycles were finally regular.

My menstruation had literally transformed from a baffling 17-45 day nightmare to a 28 day dream.

And my uterine lining was now thick & nutritious (apparently).

So why wasn’t I pregnant?

I was grieving for the baby I’d never have. Crying through every session with my herbalist. His receptionist had never made so much tea!

And I began to doubt whether I was meant to be a mother.

It got so bad, I was afraid of pregnancy bumps

I couldn’t bare to be around pregnant women. Not even from a distance. It became a phobia. And when you don’t want to see bumps – you see them everywhere. (So a trip to Ikea was the stuff of nightmares!)

And the day I mistook a man’s beer belly for a baby bump was the day I asked myself:

Could stress be making me infertile?

The Mind Body Connection

Stress affects the body. We all know that.

Fear in the short term helps you survive. It helps you escape danger! But fear that keeps going for a prolonged period of time can effect the immune system, digestive system, sleep, fertility and a whole lot more.

Living with infertility stress is like living with a permanent threat in the room.  And on a biological level, becoming pregnant is never a good survival tactic when the person who needs to survive is YOU.

Sometimes the fear can be obvious – the stress of infertility itself.

But sometimes it runs much deeper.

For me it was linked to my past loss. For some of my clients it’s been linked to a past trauma or a deeply ingrained sense of self.

But the wonderful thing about Hypnotherapy is you don’t need to know the problem to find the success.

As an artist once said. We are not painting the houses or the trees. We are painting the spaces between them.

9 Weird Ways to Get pregnant

When you think you’ve tried everything, it might be worth considering these?

These days Hypnotherapy for fertility is pretty standard. It’s up there on the checklist with hydration and good food. Zita West’s IVF Clinic saw to that!

But back in 2007 I did well to even find a Hypnotherapist.

It started with EFT

Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping) was not what I had in mind, I just wanted Hypnotherapy.

I wanted the doubt to stop. But EFT gave me a tool to use around pregnant women. It helped. But so can hypnotherapy by adjusting your noticing biases, increasing calm and using techniques like Swish.

But the next session was the game changer.

Parts Hypnotherapy was the key to my fertility

Next was an advanced hypnotic technique from Parts Hypnotherapy. And something amazing happened.

As I drifted off into a deep & relaxed state my Hypnotherapist began to speak. She asked my subconscious about my fertility and to my surprise I found that I had answers.

My answers made no sense but she reassured me to trust whatever came to my mind.

Then she asked if there was a part of my subconscious that was stopping me from getting pregnant? My thinking mind was saying hell no! But from somewhere else I heard a Yes.

The next question. “Will that part come forward and talk to us?” Again it felt strange, so the “NO” I felt was a relief.

But my hypnotherapist continued. She told this ‘Part’ that I wanted a baby & how sad I was. She described what a baby would mean to me. And somewhere I heard a YES.

I’ve never jumped out of an aeroplane but I imagine it feels just like I did in that moment. No going back.

Say hello to your fertility!

But then it got stranger. “What is your name?” And somewhere in the depths of my mind came the word.

She talked with this part.

The answers make no sense. But my hypnotherapist thanked this part & then tried to strike a deal. This deal was what I believe lifted my fertility block.

She asked this part to stop work and take a back seat for nine months whilst I grew my baby. Then the part could do its job again. And I felt a weight lift.

In the coming days those feelings became more noticeable. I wasn’t brave enough for hope, but quietly content. A sense of ease.

Occasional doubts. Of course. (I wasn’t going to delude myself) But I was able to put them to one side. And I found a balance between optimism and doubt.

I got Pregnant with Hypnotherapy!

During my next fertility hypnotherapy session, my hypnotherapist took me threw a body scan. Not a mindful scan. A parts hypnotherapy scan! The scan took me through my body. Looking inside and describing how it felt and looked and if anything needed to change?

It was uneventful until we got to my uterus. I described it as warm and cosy. It was purple! Did it need any work, any improvement? I didn’t think so. But it felt uneasy. Because I had the feeling that I wasn’t alone.

I didn’t say anything. I’d been disappointed too many times before.

A couple of weeks later I realised that I could have told my Hypnotherapist. I wish I had. Because there had been someone in my uterus. Because almost straight after my Parts Hypnotherapy sessions I fell pregnant! 

Telling my hypnotherapist the good news, she suggested that if I thought hypnotherapy for fertility was good…I should try hypnobirthing. She was right!

Parts Hypnotherapy changed me. It led to motherhood & a career in hypnotherapy helping other women conceive

Deep in my client’s unconscious minds we’ve reduced stress levels, brought the happiness back into life & created beautiful change.
