A miracle baby is not the only measure of success on this journey

A small selection of the shifts that occur when you start to put yourself first.

I’m enjoying everything about Embrace. I could shout about it from the rooftops! I enjoy watching/listening. It makes me feel less alone and like I’m talking to someone who really understands. I nod and smile as I’m listening.

Hannah

“I think the Embrace course has come at just the time I most need it for helping with the emotional toll of what’s been a much longer journey to start a family than we hoped, and I’m enjoying learning new ways of seeing and thinking about things, and also being part of a community of others going through similar experiences.”

Jo

“I feel accepted and understood by Naomi and I don’t have to hold back. I feel heard by her and she is helping me to hear myself.

I realise how much I hold back generally and I’m realising now it’s ok not to be ok and to be completely honest with myself, not just say the right thing to myself or to others. “

Hannah

“No-one deserves to have crap, after crap, after crap, piled on top of them. At some point we have to say enough is enough and we want to live again.

It doesn’t mean I’ve changed my mind on wanting a family, I want it more than ever but I can be and am happy without one in this moment (and there’s the key right? That ‘in this moment’…that’s all we’ve got).

One way or another, something will change and it will start to feel or look different. I can’t say how or when, but just something small will mean it changes, somehow, and it will be different.

I know I didn’t believe this, and I wanted to punch people who told me this, but it is true. It doesn’t mean there may be this amazing outcome (I have no idea, no-one does!) it does mean nothing stays the same, everything changes.”

Emily - now a mum through surrogacy

“The two key things I loved and that I feel helped me more than anything else, were your take on ‘positive’ thinking, and the attitude of ‘yes please!’ to seeing other pregnant women. I was lucky enough to have IVF at Guys, where the success rates for a blastocyst transfer for someone my age (33) was around 50%. It was so much easier to say to myself “well, it works for 50% of the people, so why shouldn’t that include me too?”, rather than “this will work, this will work!”. It meant that my husband and I entered IVF very positively, and managed to laugh a lot throughout. PS I started the course as I was beginning my first cycle of IVF, and I am very chuffed to say that I am now 14 weeks pregnant. I sincerely believe that the techniques you share, especially EFT (which, you are right, I did feel daft doing, but had a strange magnetic draw which meant I returned to it when things were tough) played a part.”

Clare

“I know I have only been doing the course for a couple of days but I am already feeling the benefit in that I feel a bit more positive about the future.

I think just making time each evening to do something for myself is making me feel better and my insomnia has lifted this week aswell after 2 very long weeks.”

Serena

“The Embrace course is changing my the way I feel about myself.

Naomi is making me see myself the way the people I love see me.”

Anna

“I found the course insightful and enable me to be vulnerable and acknowledge the issues about my infertility journey I have not been addressing. While there is a lot to explore on this course Naomi is great facilitator and I wish I had known about this course at the start of my infertility journey.”

Dhara

As the months passed my excitement dwindled and my reaction to pregnancy announcements turned from joy to jealousy. I felt lost and left behind. Was this really happening to me? Why couldn’t I get pregnant?

I felt ashamed and a failure. I didn’t want to talk about what I was going through as it was just too painful. I distanced myself emotionally from my friends and family while I dealt with my inner turmoil myself. I didn’t feel like me. I hated life and what I was going through.

When I started Embrace I thought it was totally ridiculous that my thinking was causing my pain – it’s the situation I’m in, not me! But now I can see that it is my thinking. I accept that right now, in this moment, I am fine. Not dwelling on the past or the future makes my journey easier. My desire for a baby hasn’t gone but I know the best way to make it happen is to feel complete now.

I stopped letting fertility define me and trusted my intuition that everything will be ok and I can and will get pregnant.

Meditation, tapping, 1:1 support from Naomi and most of all Embrace, have turned my journey around. My affirmation is ‘I am a young, fertile goddess!’

Keeping my mind and emotions on track isn’t easy. That’s what we’re all here to help each other do. Knowing I’m not the only one in this crazy boat is such a comfort. I have met so many beautiful, strong souls through Embrace and for that I’ll always grateful. I am doing everything in my control to welcome our baby by nourishing my mind, body and spirit.

Deep down I know that my happy ending is not a positive pregnancy test. My happy ending is embracing life and enjoying each and every moment. But please let it be a baby as well.

Helen - Now a mum to Zac

The Embrace Fertility Method has helped me feel more at peace with myself and the process of getting pregnant. It also helped me release limiting beliefs around getting pregnant. Our first IVF cycle was successful in week 6 of the course.

Nicole - Now mum to Owen

“Going into the session I felt worried, anxious and fearful about my current and next steps of my journey.

Afterwards I felt relief in many ways but what was amazing was how much clarity came to me even after the session which truly reinforced the value of having that 1:1 time to dive deep into what I was currently going through.

Naomi makes you feel at home and is so easy to talk to which makes the session wonderful.”

Jamie - Shift Member

“Naomi has a gift of being able to get to the heart of an issue and guide you to better voice it through tapping.

I feel more empowered to overcome my binge eating. That although this has been a habit, addiction, and coping mechanism, I can still feel whole and even better without it.

I’m really glad I choose this subject even though it’s not directly linked to infertility, I feel less stuck in the same thinking patterns.”

Emily - Shift Member

“During our session my fears were completely released in both my mind and body. I had logically thought through my challenge, but I was still having anxiety.

Afterwards my anxiety was fully released. It was truly incredible. I seriously love your coaching style and technique. You get to the root of the problem very quickly, you know exactly what techniques to use and your voice is so soothing.”

Nicole - Shift Member

“Before the session I was noticing negative thoughts that I had towards myself and around this stage of our journey – feeling IVF was something we ‘had’ to do, that we were failing and needed these interventions while my other friends were getting pregnant easily, I was beating myself up for potentially being the reason why we were not pregnant yet. After our session I felt completely different towards our current place in our journey and myself – Naomi helped me to recognise how different I would be viewing this circumstance if it was happening to a friend rather than myself and the reality that our treatment is something we are choosing to do to assist usI am now feeling that this is all happening FOR us rather than TO us.

Jamie - Shift Member

“I was having uncontrollable feelings of anxiety at different points in the day, every day and I couldn’t figure out what was causing them. Sleep wasn’t good and I felt like I was in a bad cycle and trying out lots of things to help but nothing was getting to the crux of the issue. I felt a shift during the session, not only emotionally but also physically! I had a huge release of tension that I had been carrying in my hips and belly. I felt like jelly! The shifts in thinking were also remarkable, so much more positive and happy in myself. I feel transformed, much more like the old me and more resilient. I felt safe to open up and also not pushed to say anything I wasn’t comfortable in saying. Looking back the anxiety I was experiencing was really debilitating and I didn’t really realise how much anxiety I was experiencing on a daily basis until it had gone.

Lizzy - Shift Member

“I did an extra session to clear another area of emotional blockage. It was also very helpful to me. If I could afford it I would do one a week! I came away feeling uplifted and lighter which isn’t always the way with talking therapy.

Becky - Shift Member

“The first session was like magic. I couldn’t believe how quickly it helped me.

Beforehand I just couldn’t stop thinking about infertility. Afterwards it receded a bit. It didn’t feel like the centre of the universe any more.

I didn’t feel like bursting into tears all the time either. It was like a switch had been thrown in my mind. I almost felt absurd for how I had been feeling in the past.” 

Debbie

“I feel accepted and understood by Naomi and I don’t have to hold back. I feel heard by her and she is helping me to hear myself.

I realise how much I hold back generally and I’m realising now it’s ok not to be ok and to be completely honest with myself, not just say the right thing to myself or to others. “

Hannah

“I was struggling with negativity and fear. The visualisation in our last session I felt helped calm some of my fears about the future and make them less scary.

Naomi has held my hand through the emotional rollercoaster of fertility. Checking in on me and giving me tips and info along the way. Her resources really helped get me through my first IVF cycle and beyond.”

Beth

“I know I have only been doing the course for a couple of days but I am already feeling the benefit in that I feel a bit more positive about the future.

I think just making time each evening to do something for myself is making me feel better and my insomnia has lifted this week aswell after 2 very long weeks.”

I’ve been there

I’m Naomi Woolfson, a cognitive hypnotherapist and coach specialising in fertility, birth and parenting following infertility.

The techniques I share and teach are the ones that transformed not only the way I was approaching trying for a baby, but every other area of my life too.

Learning mindbody techniques allowed me to regain my strength and happiness BEFORE I fell pregnant. I conceived on our final round of IVF three and a half years into trying for a baby but then miscarried and instead of plummeting into depression I felt hopeful and expectant for the future.

Three months later I conceived my son naturally and 23 months later I conceived my daughter, again naturally and on the first try!

I’m so exicted to be able to share this with you.
