Ready to ignite hope, expand and rise in your fertility journey?

On my path to motherhood, I didn’t have resources like cycle specific yoga or guides dedicated to women’s health and wellness who could help me navigate my fertility journey.

So I decided to create it.

There are studies that show when women diagnosed as infertile participate in mind-body program, pregnancy rate increases.

What if you went from 1 in 5 women to becoming 1 in 2 women who become pregnant?

These statistics are from a Harvard research study that shows patients who participated in a mind body program for a 10-week period (which included yoga and meditation) conceived 3 times more often.

It’s hard to describe the incredibly joyful experiences I have shared with thousands of moms when they reach out and hold their baby for the first time.

This online program is for women who want to do more than just survive their fertility journey— they want to thrive.

What Doctors Are Saying

“She’s an absolute game changer.”

- Dr. Robert Kiltz, Reproductive Endocrinologist and founder of CNY Fertility

“This program is very beneficial for the mind, body and soul. I strongly
recommend Fertile Hope Yoga to all of my pregnant patients.”

- Dr. Amanda Gorman, OBGYN - West Ridge

“As a Conception Coach & director of an integrative fertility clinic, I’ve recommended yoga to clients for years, as an evidence-based self-care method to reduce stress through the fertility journey. However, since our clients are all over the world, I’d been looking for an online resource to refer clients to. With Erin’s extensive fertility experience, clear teaching style, and hormonal stage-specific recommendations, the Fertile Hope Yoga online program is a wonderful fit for women who want to receive the benefits of her expertise right in the comfort of their own homes. I love that the modules refer to variations, and speak to the different needs that arise physiologically depending on where a woman is within her cycle.”

- Dr. Elizabeth Cherevaty ND, RAc, Integrative Fertility Expert, Conception Coach & Founding Director, Two Rivers Health

“I am so happy to be able to refer my patients to Erin and Fertile Hope Yoga. Erin is such a warm, supportive and compassionate advocate and her programs are life-changing. I trust Fertile Hope Yoga to safely support my patients as they navigate their fertility journey. I highly recommend these programs for anyone who wants to increase their chances in getting pregnant and staying pregnant.”

- Dr. Caroline D’Souza M.D, OBGYN

I GAINED LIFELONG FRIENDS AND A COMMUNITY THAT FEELS LIKE FAMILY

If you’re feeling hesitant to join, you probably need it more than you realize. Before I found Fertile Hope Yoga, I found that I just wanted to retreat from all activities and social situations.

I felt alone, lost passion for the things I was once passionate about and I became very reclusive. I felt left behind. Yoga for fertility gave me the social and emotional support I needed so badly, but was in too much pain to seek out on my own.

I still use the yoga breathing when I have an anxiety attack or if I am feeling stressed. I also still consider the women I went through this journey with to be great and lifelong friends. The community became like a family to me.

MY STRESS WENT DOWN AND I WASN’T ALONE ANYMORE

For the first two years of our journey, I only spoke to my husband and our doctors about what we were going through.  For the third year, we finally let some family/friends know— but they couldn’t relate and that made me feel more alone than before.

Once I started going to yoga, I felt free to focus on my mental/emotional health and realized I needed to reconnect with who I was… before all the medical appointments/medications.

During an IVF cycle, it was nice to have time at yoga where I could focus on my breathing versus stress about how my ovaries were doing or worrying about the outcome— even if it was just once per week, it gave me the chance to breathe.

FERTILE HOPE YOGA IS A SAFE SPACE

In the beginning my life was all doctor appointments and shots! After finding Fertile Hope Yoga, I had a set of tools to help me at anytime. Plus, I developed friendships with other women and we all support each other as parents now!

Fertile Hope Yoga is a safe space to share my experiences with women who had a similar journey and together we learn how to treat our bodies right.

FROM FEELING LONELY TO BEING SURROUNDED WITH SUPPORT

I felt lonely until I started this class because I didn’t know anyone I could share with other than my husband and close family. I’ve met some amazing women through yoga that I am now very close with.

I learned that no journey is the same but there are so many women wanting and hoping for the same thing – to be a mom.

FHY SAVED MY SANITY AND I LET GO OF THE THINGS I COULDN’T CONTROL

Having a group of people to talk to, ask questions, listen to your weekly struggles and triumphs became essential for my sanity! It was a nice break to allow myself to open up to someone other than my husband.

The yoga was so relaxing and helpful to calm my nerves during the most anxious steps of the journey. I quickly realized that the more you put into the group, the more you got out of it.  The more open and honest I was— the more people connected and became a true life-line for me.

I LEARNED I WAS STRONG AND COULD SURVIV THINGS THAT I USED TO THINK WOULD KILL ME

Fertile Hope yoga was a life saver for me. The support was incredible. Being able to share my innermost feelings helped lessen the pain I was feeling. And the focus on gratitude helped me keep perspective on a journey that can easily swallow you whole and consume your identity at times.

I learned that I was strong and could survive things that I used to think would kill me. While strength is inherent in this process it’s equally important to welcome fear, sorrow and whatever else comes up… feeling the grief and being vulnerable (not always feeling positive or strong) is essential in welcoming and inviting miracles and keeping hope alive. Often when you’re at rock bottom and ready to give up a miracle appears.

Knowing I was not alone and witnessing the strength and determination of my fellow womb warriors multiplied my power and helped me carry on.

I REALIZED MY STRENGTH AND ABILITY TO KEEP GOING WHILE EXPANDING MY FAMILY

The yoga for fertility program is a vital lifeline for navigating the fertility world when struggling to begin or add to your family. When I first joined, I was so inspired by the FHY community that I ended up sharing way more than I anticipated (for a shy first timer) and walked away with a renewed sense of hope and a feeling of belonging.

After losing my first pregnancy at 19 weeks, I wasn’t sure how to pick my life back up. I joined FHY just 3 weeks after my loss and through many tears I was able to share my story out loud.

The compassion and support I received was incredible. I left realizing that I was way stronger than I ever thought and felt that I would be to be able to push through and continue on my journey to creating the family I so desperately wanted.

Got More Questions? I’ve got answers

I’ve never done yoga, do I have to be flexible?

You don’t have to be flexible, into yoga at all or have a certain body type.  Anyone can participate! The NURTURE yoga for fertility course is great for beginners and the poses can be modified based on your abilities. The practices are very specific and it’s more about the therapeutic benefits of each pose. So no matter what your previous experiences with yoga look like, this will be different!

Also, yoga is JUST ONE piece of the IGNITE Your Fertility membership. It’s so much more than just yoga.

Are the yoga for fertility videos streamed or can I download them?

When you join the IGNITE Your Fertility membership, you will be given a unique login and password to access your programs. All of the video content is streamed within the programs and cannot be downloaded. You can access the programs and the yoga videos from any device and from anywhere as long as you have internet access.

When should I join the IGNITE Your Fertility membership? How long should I participate for optimal results?

The IGNITE Your Fertility membership program was designed so you can start anytime and feel confident the practices will align with exactly where you are at any stage in your fertility journey process. It does take about 90 days to experience changes at the cellular level in your body. So the sooner you start, the better!

What happens after a positive pregnancy test?

First, congratulations! You can practice the first trimester yoga video within the NURTURE yoga for fertility course and will be supported in the IGNITE Your Fertility program until ~10 weeks of pregnancy. At that time you will “graduate” and the BLOSSOM Yoga for Pregnancy program will be your next step.

Do I really need this?

At Fertile Hope Yoga we believe it not only takes a village to raise a child, but also to create one. We believe this because this is what we have seen over a decade of doing this work. IT MATTERS how you are supported during your fertility journey. The mind-body connection is something YOU CAN CONTROL and CAN HAVE A HUGE IMPACT on your success.

Plus, Harvard research shows that patients who participated in a mind body program for a 10-week period (which included yoga and meditation) conceived 3 times more often.

Is it safe to practice yoga if I’m also undergoing fertility treatments?

The NURTURE yoga for fertility program has been developed with safety being one of the most important factors. Erin, founder of FHY, developed NURTURE from over a decade of experience working side by side with Dr. Robert Kiltz and facilitating an in person yoga for fertility program at CNY Fertility Center. 

 

Also, because lawyers…

Yoga is 100% safe to practice at any point in your fertility journey when you follow these terms: 

 

Physical exercise, in all of its forms and with or without the use of equipment such as blocks, straps or any other equipment that may be suggested by a Fertile Hope Yoga instructor, is a strenuous physical activity. 

 

Accordingly, you are urged and advised to seek the advice of a physician before beginning any physical exercise regimen, routine, program or using any suggested equipment, shown in any of the video clips on the Website. Fertile Hope Yoga is not a medical organization and its instructors or staff cannot give you medical advice or diagnosis. 

 

All suggestions and comments relating to the use of equipment, poses, moves and instruction are not required to be performed by you and are carried out at your election while viewing Fertile Hope Yoga videos. Nothing contained in this Website should be construed as a guarantee you will become pregnant. Nothing contained in this Website should be construed as any form of such medical advice or diagnosis.

 

By using the Website you represent that you understand that physical exercise involves strenuous physical movement, and that such activity carries the risk of injury whether physical or mental. You understand that it is your responsibility to seek the approval of your doctor to continue these exercises in the event you become pregnant. 

 

You understand that it is your responsibility to judge your physical and mental capabilities for such activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that by participating in classes and activities from Fertile Hope Yoga, you will not exceed your limits while performing such activity, and you will select the appropriate level of classes for your skills and abilities, as well as for any mental or physical conditions and/or limitations you have. 

 

You understand that, from time to time, instructors may suggest physical adjustments or the use of equipment and it is your sole responsibility to determine if any such suggested adjustment or equipment is appropriate for your level of ability and physical and mental condition. 

Are there any clinical studies that show a program like IGNITE Your Fertility actually helps improve fertility?

Yes! There is so much science backing the benefits of a mind-body program for fertility enhancement.

 

Fertility Study: Harvard research shows that patients who participated in a mind body program for a 10-week period (which included yoga and meditation) conceived 3 times more often. (1)

 

IVF Study: Mind body techniques such as yoga have also been shown to improve in vitro fertilization success rates by lowering stress hormones. In a behavioral study of 151 women undergoing IVF, birth rates were 93% higher for women with the lowest stress and depression levels. (2)

 

Anxiety Study: Participation in a two-month yoga class can lead to significant reduction in perceived levels of anxiety in women who suffer from anxiety disorders. This study suggests that yoga can be considered as a complementary therapy or an alternative method for medical therapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders. (3)

 

PCOS Study: Ninety adolescent (15-18 years) girls from a residential college in Andhra Pradesh, who satisfied the Rotterdam criteria, were randomized into two groups. The study concluded twelve weeks of a holistic yoga program in adolescents with polycystic ovarian syndrome is significantly better than physical exercise program in reducing anxiety symptoms. (4)

 

Stress Study: We aimed to evaluate potential effects of Iyengar Hatha yoga on perceived stress and associated psychological outcomes in mentally distressed women. Women suffering from mental distress participating in a 3-month Iyengar yoga class show significant improvements on measures of stress and psychological outcomes. Further investigation of yoga with respect to prevention and treatment of stress-related disease and of underlying mechanism is warranted. (5)

 

Pregnancy Study: This study examined the effects of a yoga program during pregnancy, on maternal comfort, labor pain, and birth outcomes. The experimental group was found to have higher levels of maternal comfort during labor and 2 hours post-labor, and experienced less subject evaluated labor pain than the control group. The experimental group was found to have a shorter duration of the first stage of labor, as well as the total time of labor. (6)
