“The support he gave me, was a big part of my success story”

“I am 7 weeks pregnant with twins, it is my belief that Russell’s The Fertile Mind program and the support he gave me, was a big part of my success story, I would not be without it – in fact I do not think I could be without it – I still listen to it all the time, not just at night, and I will continue to do so throughout this miraculous experience – Thank you Russell, from the bottom of my heart, for helping me make my dreams come true.”

“Thank you isn’t enough to show you how grateful I am”

“Thank you isn’t enough to show you how grateful I am for your kind words and support through a difficult time in my life.

I came to you needing help to become pregnant and wasn’t interested in anything else. However, after having only a few sessions with you, you made me realise how much of a stressful burden I had been carrying which became the negative focus in my life.

With your help, I have managed to break the cycle of stressful negative thoughts and am learning to live in the here and now. I would never have been able to do this without your support for which I will never forget. Thank you very much.”

…reassuring, calming and inspiring…

“I would recommend anyone to have a telephone conversation with you.”

“Thank you very much for your help on the telephone.  I was feeling quite stressed with dealing with all life’s problems and the idea of pregnancy seemed a distant dream, one I felt was becoming out of my reach.  Your relaxation suggestions helped me to relax and put all my problems in their proper perspective. I also have renewed confidence in my ability to become pregnant. I had been struggling with excess weight and sugar cravings for a long time and felt out of control.  Your visualisation techniques really helped and seemed to give my self-control a boost.  Shortly afterwards I finally managed to kick my sugar habit and I have been eating much healthier and have managed to lose a few pounds. I still have a long way to go but this is a good start and my willpower to eat healthily has remained. I feel confident I can continue to get my body as healthy as possible for pregnancy.

I have just started an ivf cycle and am still enjoying listening to your voice every evening.  You are definitely helping me to relax in what otherwise would be a very stressful time.

I would definitely recommend anyone struggling to deal with their problems and losing their faith in becoming a parent to have a telephone conversation with you.  Your relaxation and visualisation techniques really do help.”

“I am more relaxed and less cranky”

“I just wanted to write and say thank you. I came to learn about your site in a state of desperation – we have been trying to conceive our second child for 2 1/2-3 years, and I had just had a failed IVF cycle using my last frozen embryo – of course I had been desperately hoping that was going to be the one and I would not have to go through another round of treatment.

It feels like time is very much against us and it was a very low point for us in the emotional rollercoaster of infertility, which has involved 4 failed IUI attempts, a miscarriage (conceived naturally just before we were due to start IVF) and 6 or 7 failed embryo transfers.

I purchased the MP3s for use with assisted conception and have been listening for nearly a month, and am just at the start now of a new IVF cycle. I was disappointed not to have conceived last cycle (not assisted) but I do think that listening to your tracks has helped me a lot – I know I am more relaxed and less cranky (especially with my beautiful 4 year old girl) and I look forward to listening before I fall asleep at night. I think it has also helped me to sleep better.

So, we don’t have the ‘result’ we want yet but I guess I just wanted to say thank you for giving me some hope when I really had lost it. Thank you for understanding and I hope to be writing to you again very soon with some good news.”

“I am so happy to tell you the news that I am 13 weeks pregnant!”

“Thank you so much for all your heart felt emails, phone consultation and the beautiful CD that I listened to throughout my ICSI treatment.

I want to say a huge thank you from my heart from myself and on behalf of my partner, for being such an amazing help on our journey. We went through our first ICSI and I am so happy to tell you the news that I am 13 weeks pregnant! I have had my first scan and all looks healthy and well with baby.

I really believe that listening to your CD was a huge factor in me becoming pregnant first time with the treatment. I can’t thank you enough.”

“She now has a beautiful baby sister…”

“You may remember that we spoke on the phone about ten or eleven months ago… I was about to undergo IVF and you gave me some great advice. I bought your mp3 for assisted conception and listened to it religiously every day before and throughout the treatment. I found it incredibly helpful and relaxing and I went into the whole process feeling calm and philosophical. This was our third attempt at IVF. We already have a six year old daughter whom we also waited a long time for. She now has a beautiful baby sister.

Thank you so much for your calming words which helped me through a very stressful time.  I believe that our state of mind plays a huge part in making our fragile dreams come true. Your words helped me achieve a very positive, strong yet philosophical frame of mind.”

“Your words have hit the spot so many times and I have felt so understood by you”

“I wanted to say thank-you to you for your very wise words and encouragement since I had found your website last year when we first began IVF.  Your words have hit the spot so many times and I have felt so understood by you which I haven’t by others so thank-you.”

Invaluable at changing my mindset

“In my 7th month of pregnancy, after 2 failed cycles of IVF and lots of desperation, I feel strongly now to share how much support and benefits I received from the Fertile Mind program. At times we feel we are doing everything right and we know all the theory, but what I needed at the beginning of this year was changing my mind-set. And Russell and his program were invaluable in helping me to do so.”

With you it was great all the way

“Hi Russell, I wrote you earlier about how my infertility journey ended last year with a bouncing baby boy. I am even pregnant with my second baby. I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to you. It was a lonely road I must say but journeying with you through your words of encouragement, articles and all made it easier. With you it was great all the way. You are such a great gift to women and humanity at large. “

I used your hypnosis for our second round of IVF and had a dramatically different experience.  I was so much calmer, my uterine lining was twice as thick as the first transfer, and I’m happy to say that I’m 21 weeks pregnant right now.  I’ve told my acupuncturist about you and will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is trying to get pregnant. Thank you!
 

I now have a new outlook on life and a new baby

“I looked for a fertility coach but found a life coach. Russell helped me understand how my thinking was affecting me and helped me challenge the way I saw the world. I gained new insight and now have a new outlook on life (and a new baby!).”

IVF success with stage 4 endometriosis & undetectable ovarian reserve…

I went through IVF last year and I really do feel like I owe Russell’s programme for our success. His voice was a constant presence in my life and the hypnosis helped me relax and turn something very scary into something positive. We had a beautiful daughter. I met with the doctor yesterday and he greeted us by saying, “You two are the luckiest couple I’ve ever seen.” I was told I had no chance of conceiving due to my stage 4 endometriosis and the damage it had done to my eggs combined with an undetectable ovarian reserve. Very painful to hear. And yet – I got one egg, one embryo, and one beautiful daughter!  I am so thankful to you Russell. You were – and continue to be – my greatest guide through this journey. Thank you for all that you do. XOXO.

Pregnant on 3rd IVF

“Hi Russell, I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I found out today (7 weeks scan) that we are pregnant with twins! This was our third IVF. I found the recordings incredibly calming and soothing and really think they played a significant role in getting us to where we are today. I visualised wonderful, healthy eggs and I got them. So thank you!”

“Words do not seem enough”

“Further to the previous email, Russell, now that our baby daughter is here, I would like to stress how truly grateful I am.  Elizabeth is all we have ever wanted and I credit you as being an integral part in making our dream a reality. Words do not seem enough.”

“When I went for my preliminary paperwork for my IVF cycle, they found out I was already pregnant!”

I just wanted to say a quick “Thank you”. I purchased your hypnosis program about a year ago. I was getting ready for my fourth IVF cycle, and wanted to do everything that I could in order to make sure that it would be successful. I found your mp3s to be very relaxing, and listened to them each night prior to bed for about two months. When I went for my preliminary paperwork for my IVF cycle, they found out I was already pregnant! My daughter was born last month. She is such an amazing blessing. I believe that your program was very helpful.

“It’s not a question of if I can get pregnant but just a matter of when”

“I’m a lot more positive and am really starting to believe that it’s not a question of if I can get pregnant but just a matter of when it’ll happen for me. So that’s great to feel normal again.”

 “I really feel that your programme kept me strong optimistic”

“Hi Russell, Just wanted to say thanks for your wonderful programme. We have been trying to conceive for about 4 years. Did one isci which failed. For next treatment we did your programme plus acupuncture.

We just got our positive pregnancy result last week. I really feel that your programme kept me strong optimistic and have faith that we would succeed. I think it’s a great resource for anyone ttc.”

“The Fertile Mind helped keep me relaxed during the whole IVF process”

“I really found The Fertile Mind helped keep me relaxed during the whole IVF process. There were 2 days when I didn’t get to listen, I actually found myself getting much more anxious the second day, but only realised it when I went back to listening to it  and found myself more relaxed again.

It was also great when we found one ovary wasn’t responding much, to have The Fertile Mind to help me focus my mind on encouraging it, we ended up getting 2 eggs from that ovary, so it obviously worked.”

“Within weeks I was pregnant! My body believed that I could get pregnant again”

“Having tried for over three years to conceive our second child with failed IVF attempts, we had reached the end of the road with our fertility clinic. We had to accept that we would not be able to give our daughter a sibling.

I came across Russell’s program and commenced listening to ‘The Fertile Mind’ Natural Conception program. Within weeks I was pregnant! My body believed that I could get pregnant again. There may have been some subconscious reason for not being able to conceive again. My beautiful daughter is now 3 weeks old and we cannot believe how blessed we are. Thank you Russell.”

“I feel less anxiety and I have a more positive outlook.”

“Russell’s hypnosis audios have been very helpful. I’m sleeping much easier, I feel less anxiety and I have a more positive outlook.”

“The mp3s helped me to feel that I was able to make a positive contribution to my treatment”

“The Fertile Mind helped me to gain perspective, deal with things one thing at a time and to regain a feeling of calm when I felt my life was completely out of control.  Also, to understand that whatever happened in my life…..it would all work out OK in the end.  It also helped me to start each IVF cycle with a positive frame of mind that the cycle could actually work and gave me the strength to continue.

During the IVF process which was completely out of my control, the mp3s helped me to feel that I was able to make a positive contribution to my treatment over and above the usual not drinking caffeine or alcohol.  It helped me to remain calm and relaxed at very stressful times and also gave me a feeling of empowerment.”

“I really had no doubt it was going to work”

“I am pregnant!! The Fertile Mind mp3′s really helped me relax and think positively… I really had no doubt it was going to work!”

“To our delight I am pregnant again without the need for any fertility assistance”

“It is nearly a year ago that I believed I was living a nightmare with the end never in sight. Following years of difficulty becoming pregnant, ectopic pregnancy, failed IVF and traumatic family bereavement I thought nothing else could go wrong. An then our world fell apart completely. Our baby boy was born an angel at 22 weeks. I was just devastated. But what really worried me was that I felt that I had no control over my life anymore.

That is when I saw an advertisement for the Fertile Mind and got in contact with Russell. It certainly was a turning point for me. I felt I was doing something positive. I can’t explain the relaxation and calmness that I experienced. I was sleeping better and was able to manage my grief and worry about my fertility.

To our delight I am pregnant again without the need for any fertility assistance other than the fertile Mind Fertility Programme. I still like to listen to the CD and have become a real believer in fertility hypnosis. Russell, I can’t thank you enough for the programme and for your support. You understand and this meant so much.”

“Helped me feel that my own body could be strong enough to maintain a pregnancy”

“I used The Fertile Mind downloads to compliment other things such as acupuncture, food supplements and reducing the amount of stress in my life. They not only helped me get a deeper more relaxing sleep they also helped me feel that my own body could be strong enough to maintain a pregnancy even though I couldn’t produce eggs – now I know its strong enough for both!”

“The feeling of control & support the programme gave us was invaluable”

“We’d been told that our best chance to have a baby was via IVF, with the medical profession offering little alternative. . We were not in a good place for success, we felt let down and that the clock, and politics, were both against us.

As soon as we heard started the process we began using Russell’s hypnotherapy programme. This and acupuncture gave us far more than the obvious benefit; we had started to take control of the situation and we began to feel ready to deal with the IVF process.

IVF isn’t an easy process to go through. Despite a 35% success rate, even the clinics are reticent to offer much hope of success.  Against all that, you are desperately trying to stay focused on what is important – the baby, the outcome of the process, not the process itself. Early starts, late trains at crucial moments, administrative errors and the effects of the medication all make this so much harder.

To have the mind in the right place, to give yourself the best possible chance to succeed in your dream, is difficult, and that is where we found Russell’s programme so beneficial. Daily positive reinforcement and visualisations became an important part of our routine.

Even when we faced a few minor complications at the end of the treatment, the feeling of control and support that the programme gave us was invaluable and allowed us to continue with optimism. Much to our delight, we were successful and our beautiful baby girl was born, we now feel able to look forward and enjoy this new chapter in our lives. We couldn’t be happier.”

“I feel a sense of relaxation and happiness”

“Since the loss of our little boy 3 months ago I have struggled to see any happiness in my life. However in the last number of weeks I can say that I am experiencing genuine happiness again. I am still sad and upset that we have to travel this journey and I still have my cry every so often, but overall I feel a sense of relaxation and happiness.

To be honest I don’t really know where it has come from and can only put it down to listening and relaxing every night before I go to sleep. I really like the idea that it doesn’t matter if your mind wanders while listening to the program. I don’t feel guilty when this happens.

My husband has noticed a difference in me too. He commented, a few days ago, that I was doing much better and seemed much happier. We even have followed up with another appointment to get started on another IVF treatment in the near future. We have no date yet, but are making plans. That is positive progress!”

“This would be the first time in MONTHS that I could have ovulated”

“Have to say, am really enjoying the whole thing!! Five nights down so far & it really is helping me sleep well and I  am much calmer.

At a scan on day 10, my doctor saw a follicle looking good on my ovary – this would be the first time in MONTHS that I could have ovulated myself (that’s if I did of course!) so I really do believe it must be down to the hypnosis as it couldn’t really be a coincidence!”

“I feel much more positive and more in control”

“I have say that since I started listening to the tracks I feel much more positive and more in control about facing into my treatment. It definitely has a calming and relaxing effect on me as I often fall asleep towards the end of the track.”

“I’m now looking forward to the future with more optimism”

“I started this program just over a week ago and I find it fantastic. I have been very stressed due to years of trying to conceive and even after just a week I’m not as stressed. I got some bad news a few days ago and normally this would get to me but using this program I slept normally without any nightmares that I would have generally had.

This program has helped me think more clearly and more positively about my situation and I’m now looking forward to the future with more optimism. I look forward to going to sleep every night to listen to the tracks to help me sleep.”

“I am still in nurture and nourish mode”

“I listen every night, still have no idea what happens after the 3 min mark as I fall asleep. I don’t do healthy life style easily, I give up the nasties kicking and screaming! But now it seems I don’t have any control! I have known for a while that I am comfort eating and not doing enough exercise.

However 2 days ago without any psyching myself up I have taken to buying things like beetroot, prunes, green veg, no caffeine, wholegrain foods, more fruit, blueberries, milled flax seed with berries … Again, 2 days ago I went and bought workout gear! I know myself the state of mind I need to be in to begin any of these plans as I have had to pull myself up a few times but this was instinctive, happy to do and exciting?! What is going on?!

2 weeks later… It great to have made the food switch without the heartache that I usually attach to it. I am still in nurture and nourish mode. Still sleeping well and really look forward to listening to the CD.”

“Positive!…I really would not of been ready for this cycle without you”

”Well it is very early days but we took two pregnancy tests on Monday and they were both positive! Throughout this second cycle of IVF, including the two week wait, I felt so much calmer and at peace then I did during our first cycle. I did falter for a few days last week, when I bled a little, but I was able to regain control much quicker than I would have expected. Obviously this is all very early on but we feel cautiously optimistic. I wanted to thank you sincerely for everything you have done, I really would not of been ready for this cycle without you. I am convinced that by understanding the process of thought and how our mind and body are one system, we have been able to conceive. I really do not know how to thank you, words don’t seem enough.”
