Unexplained Infertility Success Story: Natural Pregnancy after 15 Failed Fertility Treatments

By on January 29, 2013

Among the unexplained infertility success stories in the Fertile Heart community, this is perhaps the most dramatic example of what becomes possible when we fully engage with our practice, or as Gen puts it, give it 110%.

After 7 Years of Unexplained Infertility, 6 failed IUI’s 5 failed IVF’s, 4 cancelled IVF’s this little girl showed up at a perfect time!

Thank you Gen G. for sharing your story!Tallulah

I have not been on the Fertile Heart website for many months, but felt compelled to share my story of hope.  I came to  Julia’s website just over a year ago with 6 failed IUIs, 5 failed IVF cycles, and 4 more cancelled IVF attempts.  I had been trying to have a child for over 6 years and went through every fertility medical route possible.  I was 40 years old and was being told by some of the best doctors in the field that I needed to strongly consider donor eggs. My heart was broken from all the cycles of hope, followed by disappointment, and I felt in deep despair.  I could not endure putting my body or my heart through another IVF cycle.  In robotically searching the web for some sort of hope, I came across Fertile Heart.  To be honest, I was a bit skeptical, but I had exhausted the medical route and thought a break to do something good for my body and mind was what I needed right then.

After thoroughly reading every page of Fertile Heart, Julia’s website and I decided to go for it.  I loved her saying that at a minimum I’d be getting myself into the best health possible. I bought both her books, Inconceivable and The Fertile Female,  and signed up for her workshop.  That was in November. The workshop was amazing.  Again, a bit skeptical as we first drove up, but the whole experience really changed me.  I left feeling a huge weight lifted off of me and a positive energy of hope I hadn’t felt in a long time.  At the same time, I was doing everything I could to improve my physical health.  I gave up caffeine, alcohol, dairy, meat (still ate lots of seafood), and wheat/gluten.  I also started juicing every day and getting wheat grass shots at my local Whole Foods 3-4x a week.  I addition, I signed up for the Fertile Heart Teleconferences and did my Fertile Heart Imagery twice a day.  I figured if I was going to do this program, I was going to put 110% of myself into it.

Some days were not as easy as others. When I felt I wasn’t connecting in my visualizations, Julia suggested sketching after my imagery, which was very powerful for me.  Sometimes I’d surprise myself when I’d just let myself draw what came to mind.  I also took an art class to get connected with a side of me that had been long neglected.

And doing all of this worked!! I started eating healthy and using the Fertile Heart tools in November, attended the workshop in December and was pregnant by the end of that month!  Unfortunately I miscarried in January, but felt like something was working.  I continued putting 110% into the program and by April I was pregnant again…and this time I carried to term!!  I now have a beautiful baby girl. My husband cleaned off a wishbone from a chicken the other night and asked what I was going to wish for.  I had no idea…for the past seven years I had one and only one wish and it came true!!  I couldn’t be happier and hope that my story inspires those of you that there is hope.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Julia – for the wonderful work you do with Fertile Heart and the lives you touch with your fertility program!!  I’ll  send you a New Year’s card with some pictures of our little girl.

    Dear Gen,

    I am so happy for you and your husband. Thank you for sharing your beautiful story of determination and faith to go this route and giving it all of you. I have faith that me and my husband will be parents soon, or, as you put it, that the baby will arrive at the perfect time!

    Thanks also for the lovely picture,
    Eva

    Gen, I was in the workshop with you in 2011 and I was moved to tears to read this story! I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND! What a miracle. I remember how much you embraced the Fertile Heart tools–you were such an inspiration! I have news to share, too–I’m 9 weeks pregnant myself!!!!! With no IVF or drugs–only the healthy eating we learned in our workshop and growing the trust and intimacy between me and hubby again (after all the TRYING!). I’m 45 and was told to go the donor route. And I was going to–I had chosen a donor and I was heading to my fertility clinic with my checkbook to pay for all the cycle fees. Some wistful something in me made me take a home pregnancy test before I left and voila-PREGNANT! I still have a ways to go but this pregnancy is so different from my others–I’m nauseous and tired, my numbers are great. THANK YOU for the inspiration! Sending love to you and your husband and your beautiful baby girl!!!!! XO

    Gen, thank you for sharing your inspiring journey and congratulations on your beautiful new baby and family!! i was also struck by your 110% commitment, especially how you did the imagery twice a day.

    i have a strong intuition that the imagery is the key for me, and yet i am finding a way to be “too busy” to do it even on a consistent once a day basis… hmmm, might this be an orphan at work? :-)

    off i go to do an imagery right now!

    How wonderful, Gen. Not only does your story inspire me that there is hope but it’s such a thorough account of what it took to get you there, including the challenges along the way.

    I am on day three of going sugar free and the best thing about it is that this decision naturally came out of following the fertile heart work. It truly feels like a liberation, like something my body is asking for, rather than a prescription or a harsh rule. And reading about your baby girl is making the process so much sweeter.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your story.

    Congratulations Gen G.! Your story is such an inspiration to us all. I admit to not giving a consistent 110% to the program and you have caused me to think about what that means for me. Thank you, and enjoy your precious baby.
