Ask the Expert Event February: Find out how practising Yoga can boost your fertility

Our Ask the Expert sessions are a fantastic opportunity to ask your questions directly to our leading fertility specialists. This month we are thrilled to be joined by Alex Taylor who has been a yoga teacher for over 11 years specialising in fertility and wellness.

Date: 27 February 2024

Time: 7-7.30pm

Host: Jennifer Elworthy, Career & Fertility Coach

Expert: Alex Taylor, Yoga Teacher specialising in fertility & wellness

Our Ask the Expert sessions are a fantastic opportunity to ask your questions directly to our leading fertility specialists. This month we are thrilled to be joined by Alex Taylor who has been a yoga teacher for over 11 years specialising in fertility and wellness.  She has been supporting women and men on their fertility journey through wellness days and workshops which help prepare the body for undergoing the physical and emotional challenges of an IVF cycle and fertility treatment.

Coping with infertility is no easy task and the immense disappointment when treatments are unsuccessful can leave you feeling that your efforts towards conceiving are exhaustive.  Studies have shown that low-impact yoga can significantly increase conception success rates in women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment. When you are investing significant amounts of time, money and emotion into an IVF cycle, you want to do everything you can to make it successful.

In many cases, Yoga can be the natural technique to enhance fertility when combined with other treatments. It doesn’t directly improve sperm or egg quality but is important for a fertility-promoting lifestyle. In fact, there are certain postures that can help improve your fertility and the overall health and Science supports yoga's role in conception. A study found yoga improved success rates in couples using assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Yoga helps patients with infertility manage complex emotions during fertility treatments

If you are looking to embrace the transformative power of yoga and allow it to support you on your path to parenthood then join us for this essential live event and don’t miss out on the opportunity to ask your questions directly to our expert.

Fertility treatment can be challenging regardless of where you are and what stage or age you are, but our experts are here to help and support your journey by answering the questions that are important to you.

Time: 7-7.30pm

Host: Emma Cannon, Fertility Specialist

Expert: Dr Amalia Annaradnam, GP & Hormone Specialist, and one of the UK’s leading bio-identical hormone replacement therapy specialists

Event marketing copy:

Our Ask the Expert sessions are a fantastic opportunity to ask your questions directly to our leading fertility specialists. This month we are thrilled to be joined by Dr Amalia Annaradnam, a GP and hormone specialist who is passionate about helping patients find root causes to their health concerns and treating naturally whenever possible.  With her unrivalled clinical expertise, Amalia combines a more holistic approach to fertility health.  If you’re having trouble getting pregnant naturally, you’ve been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, or you want to optimise your body before trying to conceive, to increase success of a sustained and healthy pregnancy then it is worth looking at a functional approach to fertility.

Functional medicine and testing are a new branch of medicine which is becoming more and more popular particularly because it focuses on the body as a whole rather than separate organs and systems.  It is an approach that involves finding the root cause of fertility imbalances through a patient-centric and science-backed method. This is done through various investigations via targeted testing.  Amalia will be offering advice and guidance on what you need to consider if you are looking at undertaking functional testing and how you can improve your chances of getting pregnant.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to ask your questions on anything to do with this form of testing.

Nutrition affects fertility in a huge number of ways and it’s important to understand that the food we eat affects all our cells – and that eggs and sperm are no different from any other cell.  If this is one area you haven’t focused on since you started your fertility journey then now is the ideal time to look at implementing a good nutrition plan to support your treatment.  If you are unsure where to start, then Mel can help you understand the specific foods that have been shown to help with the outcome of IVF.  Plus, don’t miss out on the opportunity to ask your questions.

Nutrition and your Fertility Journey with Melanie Brown
January 30, 2023

As we enter the new year when many of us begin to look at our health and nutrition we are delighted to be joined by Mel Brown, Nutritional Therapist, Specialist in Fertility, IVF and Pregnancy. The session discusses the most important things to consider with nutrition and how it can make a difference. We look at when you should start your fertility nutrition journey, the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’, supplements and, other things outside of nutrition to consider such as mental health/fitness, to do in line with a nutrition plan.

Melanie Brown specialises in pre conceptual and pregnancy nutrition, and helping you to prepare for pregnancy. Mel’s two decades of experience working with doctors, gynaecologists, urologists, midwives and IVF specialists has given me a unique insight into the process of fertility treatment, and an understanding and empathy of how being unable to conceive affects the whole of your life. She is not a hard core kill joy; she enjoys wine, chocolate, roast potatoes and croissants. She wants client to feel that they are adding good things to their diet, not taking them away and generally making life a misery! She believes that by giving clients a rationale, so they can understand why some things are not so great for you, this makes it much easier to adapt to new, healthier habits.

Fertility and Cancer with Sara J Matthews and Emma Cannon
January 18, 2023

A cancer diagnosis of any kind is a traumatic experience. Although fertility normally isn’t the initial concern, it is increasingly an important consideration; particularly since life expectancy post cancer diagnosis has significantly increased.

Some cancer treatments will impact short and long term fertility; either due to toxicity of chemotherapy or removal of ovaries (to reduce oestrogen). Male fertility may also be impacted by cancer treatments

This discussion, with leading Gynaecologist, Miss Sara Matthews & Emma Cannon, Fertility Mentor, will provide invaluable information to those facing cancer treatment who have yet to conceive or may want to extend their family post cancer treatment.

We are privileged to be joined by Sara Matthews.  Miss Matthews has one of the broadest experiences of all consultants in the UK in the field of Fertility Medicine, having worked in a number of the largest, most established and highly regarded fertility units in the country.  She is now based solely at the Portland Hospital for Women and Children in London, where she has had her own very successful independent practice since 2008.

"The content The IVF Network produces for anyone going through a fertility journey is exceptional. It has really helped me make some stronger choices about my next steps."

Corina

"I was attracted to the IVF network because of the high-quality content of the broadcasts. I feel this is content that I can trust, which is a relief in the world of IVF where there is so much out there if you google it, so the IVF network has helped me to cut through some of that and find resources I can rely on (and then not waste time in rounds of obsessive googling!)."
