How long should I wait before trying to conceive after stopping the pill?

I would recommend waiting 120 days. It takes 3 months for an egg to reach full maturity and if the pelvic area is congested the chosen egg will be weak and unhealthy. It takes 4 months for sperm to be fully developed so by waiting 120 days you are giving the egg and sperm sufficient time to be nutrient rich and strong putting you in the best position when trying to conceive.

Why is a healthy immune system so important?

The main job of our immune system is to protect us from germs and it is constantly defending our body against invaders. 80% of our immune system lives in our digestive system so it is important to have good digestion to help strengthen our immunity.

What is Pulsing?

This is a type of rhythmic body work, where you are gently rocked.

What is the 3 Step Process and how can it help me if I have experienced a traumatic birth experience?

When you have experienced a traumatic event the memory of this causes the body to go into flight/fight/freeze mode, ready to protect us from danger. Recalling a negative experience can produce feelings of fear, panic or helplessness and these emotions become attached to the memory – so every time you think of the experience you feel fear, panic etc.

The 3 Step Process is a gently and safe way to unhook the negative emotions that have attached to the experience. I listen to your story (should you wish to vocalise it) the process works without me having to know the details.

Over the 3 sessions using guided meditation, visualisation, positive suggestion and affirmation I help you to re-structure how you remember the experience. When you are in this deep state of relaxation your subconscious ‘switches on’ as you are not in the heightened state of flight/fright/freeze and your body can begin to activate its own natural healing ability.

Why is self care important?
