Frequently Asked Questions

A series of my FAQ’s answered by Joanna Sinclair

What does a fertility coach do?
Every coach has unique ways of working and individually tailoring support to best meet the needs of their client to support them on their journey, this can be physical, emotional and practically.

It is important to find a good match and strategies and coaching style and skill set to best help you. I also work collaboratively with many practitioners in the sector and can help with advice on diagnosis, treatment and care based on your specific situation.

What skills set and experience makes a good coach for you?
All coaches have different expertise and knowledge. I have lived experience of fertility and IVF and ‘I get it’.

It is from this perspective that inspired my qualifications as a holistic fertility coach, mind-set and emotional coach and work around supporting the physical and mind/body connection to help you prepare physically and emotionally and to do so with empathy and expert guidance.

I have a range of tools that can help you, techniques you can easily earn, a programme with a  blend of therapeutic approaches for body and mind that is tailored for each client to focus on their needs.

I work with evidence based approaches to help you navigate your way, learning and regaining control, help you to make informed choices and build strength and resilience whilst in the wait and helping to support you to move forward.

How does stress and anxiety impact on fertility?

The impact of stress on the body is hugely detrimental, it imbalances hormones, can interfere with your reproductive cycles and the associated increases in cortisol and adrenaline is not favourable for conception and pregnancy.

Your body knows when your stressed and will not see it a favourable time for pregnancy when your stress levels are high. Stress can all hinder your chances of conceiving, but I hear you……..its just not easy to ‘relax and let it happen’

Studies have proved that those that work on the mind and body connection, and with coaches and therapists are almost twice as likely to get pregnant than those that didn’t.

That’s why I work on the mind and body connection, and integrate education with a holistic approach to reduce stress while nurturing the body and working collaboratively to enhance any reproductive assistance techniques and medical support for optimum effectiveness.

What is the success rate of the approach?

The success of this type of work is not easily quantifiable, sadly the truth of fertility and related issues is that there are no guarantees.

Every case and individual is different and as such so are options ad choices. However, it has been researched and been shown that those that undertake coaching or therapy are almost twice as successful in achieving pregnancy, both naturally and for those who were receiving assistance than those who did not partake in a coaching programme.

What is the range of your services and how much do your they cost?
My service costs vary but I price them to enable then to be as affordable to everyone as possible. I offer one off one hour sessions for assessment, education and empowerment,
