Stress and infertility are intimately related, and mind-body practices have helped couples and individuals find a deep sense of well-being. Optimal medical care requires optimal self-care. From a whole-person perspective, fertility treatments must include not only medicines and medical procedures, but also self-nurturance.
Choosing a mind-body approach can feel overwhelming when you are already swamped by the costs and strains of infertility treatments. In fact, mind-body practices actually help you make more room for yourself; they create energy for the demands of living. The investment you make in caring for yourself is tiny compared to the rewards you will reap.
