    Stress and Fertility

    80% of all illnesses are caused or worsened by stress. Not only will it rob you of the health you need to have a baby, it increases the production of a neurotransmitter dopamine, which impacts your fertility. Stress can also lead to weight gain, and excessive weight lowers the success rate of in vitro fertilization.

    The anguish of infertility can be painful and lonely; many couples feel they can't talk about it with others. Mind-body programs that reduce stress have reported fertility increases up to 35 percent, regardless of the patients' histories.

    Yoga is a safe, gentle way to handle stress and sadness. It will help bring your body into balance, improving your sleep, reducing your stress, and lowering your blood pressure. Yoga and lifestyle expert Corey Kelly will answer your questions about reducing stress to make your body ready for the baby.

It's powerful and amazing. Yoga is a union, not only of body and mind but teacher and community.
