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.

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.
