See How Other Women’s Fertile Hope Success Stories Transformed Their Lives
My fertility journey prior to CNY Fertility and Fertile Hope Yoga can be summed up into one word: CLINICAL! I worked with two other fertility centers before I found CNY Fertility through the recommendation of a colleague.
With the first two centers, I was treated as an individual who was part patient, part guinea pig. I felt that the staff at those offices didn’t have any compassion for how emotionally, mentally, and physically draining the fertility journey is.
Fertile Hope Yoga allowed me to have time for introspection and reflection and through that, gave me the opportunity to make choices that has brought my life to a more balanced completeness. The yoga program gave me tools to make space in my life for good vibes and positive thoughts by putting an end to negative self-talk and focusing on what uplifts me rather than brings me down.
Being able to express my thoughts and emotions about this journey allowed me to truly focus on each yoga pose and how those movements were bringing me closer to my dream of having a baby.
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.
Fertile Hope Yoga is an amazing program. We would have been completely lost without it. It provided us with much needed information and insights about the process and connected us with some fantastic people! We were clueless and the program helped us feel prepared and informed. Joining FHY was the best decision we made in our fertility journey. – Sarah Pastecki
The magnitude of information and support we received throughout our journey was unparalleled. We felt confused, lost, and alone until we joined the fertility yoga program. I have learned how to process information and how to reach out to others for support and guidance when needed. – Katie Pastecki
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.
After having two ectopic pregnancies resulting in both my tubes being removed, I kept most of my feelings inside. I didn’t talk much about it and just went through the motions. I struggled with the fact that I couldn’t have kids the traditional way. I think it made me tense and build a wall up.
Now I can talk about my situation and I feel comfortable doing so because I know I’m not the only one and I have a support group I can lean on if I need them. I’m even more blessed because I was able to conceive two beautiful children.
The first one I did IVF before the yoga fertility program and I was really sick from the meds and it took a few tries. When my husband and I decided to try again for baby number two, I was lucky to learn about Fertile Hope Yoga’s program and I didn’t get sick from the medicine because I learned great tips from the support group of yoga. I was able to relax and stretch my body and I was lucky enough to have success with baby number two.
It’s helped me really appreciate the things I have in my life.
I felt like no one understood because everyone I knew either had gotten pregnant with no problem or weren’t at the point of wanting kids and all I ever heard was “if you stop trying it’ll happen.” My husband was supportive but he didn’t know exactly what to say either. I felt like I was being over dramatic by being upset but coming to yoga helped me realize that my feelings were all normal and that I wasn’t alone.
I’m always reminded that things could always be worse. Someone always has more struggles than you and it’s important to be thankful for what you do have and also appreciate the ups and downs because it makes us stronger. And I’ve also developed a love for yoga and continue to practice it on my own!
