The very best time to start the Program would be a few weeks (or more) before starting an IVF cycle as this will give you the best preparation for your journey ahead.
Got a cycle coming up? It’s OK to start the Program any time before your egg collection. You’ll be grateful for the excellent techniques and strategies you’ll learn that will help get you through the tough weeks between the egg collection and the pregnancy test.
The Program will teach you simple strategies and relaxation techniques that will help you better deal with the stress and anxiety of infertility and the experience of going through IVF. You will also learn the science behind how your body reacts to stress so that you’ll be better placed to control it.
No. There is a lot of supportive interaction in the group where you might share common thoughts and feelings, but there is no expectation to reveal any personal information with the group.

The Conceiving Mind Program is specifically tailored for IVF and its stages. However, if you are having fertility challenges that don’t require IVF, or you can’t get to the face-to-face program, please check out our 'Mind-Body Health at Home' Package' – it’s an eBook to help you with your fertility mindset and the three MP3 tracks providing guided meditation for fertility.
Yes, the Program supports primary infertility as well as secondary infertility.
