“Positive!…I really would not of been ready for this cycle without you
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. I wanted to thank you sincerely for everything you have done, I really would not of been ready for this cycle without you. I really do not know how to thank you, words don’t seem enough
“I’m 21 weeks Pregnant!
“I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is trying to get pregnant
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!
“YOU ARE SUCH A GIFT TO WOMEN
“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 made it easier. With you it was great all the way. You are such a great gift to women and humanity at large.
“Invaluable at changing my mindset
After 2 failed cycles of IVF and lots of desperation I am now 7th months pregnant! I feel strongly 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 mindset. And Russell was invaluable in helping me to do so.
“contacting you was the turning point for me
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
That is when I 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.
“you’ve been a FUNDAMENTAL part of getting us here
We’re pregnant! So very exciting! I only found out yesterday but I wanted to let you know as I feel you’ve been a fundamental part of getting us here. My session with you, reading your newsletters, listening to podcasts and your hypnosis tracks – they’ve all helped me understand my fears and that they’re ok. Back in January we became pregnant and lost very early. This time round I feel totally different, I’m not so scared and waiting for something bad to happen. I’m just happy and content – and that’s all I want to be!
“KNOWING i would be ok whatever happens made all the difference
What made the difference was without doubt acceptance. It’s so different to stopping caring which is what I had been trying to trick myself into for the preceding years. Actually accepting the situation and that it may not happen and that I would still be OK made the difference.
“working with you was one of the best decisions I ever made
I will always be grateful for the very significant role you played in bringing my daughter here. Your work is profoundly important and working with you was one of the best decisions I ever made.
“I’m 7 weeks pregnant with twins!
“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.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I am 7 weeks pregnant with twins! It is my belief that the support you gave me was a big part of my success story. Thank you

“I felt so understood by you
I wanted to say thank-you to you for your very wise words and encouragement. 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.
“dreams come true
I truly have no idea what it was that made the difference with helping this pregnancy thrive after 8 miscarriages. There were so many things that we differently with this last cycle that it is difficult to know for certain. But I am sure of one thing-the work that we did together and the work that you guided me to do on my own, unquestionably helped to change everything.
I’m so grateful to you for your help and support, and I’m grateful that I listened to my gut and reached out to you for guidance. You have helped make our dreams come true and I am so thankful to have been able to work with 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.
“Pregnant on 3rd IVF
“I VISUALISED WONDERFUL HEALTHY EGGS AND I GOT THEM!
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!
“I can’t thank you enough
“I am so happy to tell you the news that I am 13 weeks pregnant!
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 programme was a huge factor in me becoming pregnant first time with the treatment. I can’t thank you enough.

“I now trust my body
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!”
PREGNANT NATURALLY AHEAD OF STARTING DONOR EGG CYCLE
“The feeling of control & support the programme gave us was invaluable
As soon as we started IVF we began using Russell’s programme. 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.
Pregnant when told she needed a donor egg
“I’m 42 and 25 weeks pregnant
I wanted to provide an update because I feel you have been helpful in my journey to motherhood. I remember looking up your website after my naturopathic doctor recommended you to me via another one of her patients. She said her other patient had found a lot of encouragement from your experience and perspective, and maybe I would, too. It was a time after many years of trying and not getting pregnant, pursuing adoption only to get pregnant without trying at 39 years old, and then losing the pregnancy and feeling completely hopeless. But your words and your story gave me bits of hope along the way. And working with you put me in an even better frame of mind to pursue whatever next steps were in front of me.
There are many details to the story but after about seven years of trying and feeling like I was failing, at 40 years old, I received a diagnosis of endometriosis. Our doctor recommended IVF to give us the best chance of a healthy pregnancy. We decided to give it one last shot. I am now 42 and I am so happy to share that I am currently 25 weeks pregnant.
My due date is around Thanksgiving and I have SO much to be thankful for. I wanted to share with you that you were instrumental in helping me, reminding me to shift from fear to openness and love. To stop worrying about my age, to stop focusing on Project Baby, and relish in life as it is. My husband and I have an amazing relationship and I know we are enough, that a child does not define us, and without a child we would continue to enjoy a totally fulfilling life together. At the same time, it’s great to share this love with another human between us, which is now a privilege rather than some goal.
Truly I feel in a much better state of mind now than I did in my early to mid 30s when we started trying, and I hope that reflects in how I parent my child (I suspect it will).
I will continue to read your updates and listen to your podcast because I want to keep in mind all of the important concepts you offer, and share them with other people in need. They have helped me, continue to help me, and I know they help others.
