Making Babies; Detour Ahead is a powerful 4 week course
It is designed to support individuals and couples offering a roadmap of information and tools to manage the journey through Infertility and the IVF process.

The modules involve the following:

Week 1: The Mind Game

High levels of anxiety and depression are all too commonly experienced during fertility treatment. “Just relax”, they say! But for the majority it becomes a battlefield of the mind. Keeping a good attitude, remaining positive and hopeful is a tough ask. This session will discuss the power of your thought life, with education around CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and a simple four-step sequence to challenge your daily thinking.

Week 2: Heart Ache

When you are struggling to conceive, there is a lot to grieve. You grieve your ovaries, your partner’s sperm, the entire process; all of the tests, the diagnoses, the waiting. Things most never need to think about. This module is designed to bring understanding to grief and loss as a process with a heavy focus on taking care of ALL of you, from the inside out.

Week 3: Dear Body

So your body is no longer your own. It belongs to the IVF drugs, nurses, embryologist, specialist and most likely a slave to the your favourite new app in the shape of a CALENDAR! Let's not mention the side effects of hormone induced headaches, “can't do your zip up” weight gain “potential” mood swings…and you are not even pregnant yet! This week we talk all things health and wellbeing from a “physical” perspective with tips on how to best support your beautiful body to rise to the occasion.

Week 4: Relationship Roadmap

IVF often imposes significant stress on a relationship. It is very important that couples undergoing IVF be made aware of this fact and encouraged to not lose sight of the other aspects of their relationship. This fourth and final module will outline the key areas of your relationship that are most likely to be impacted by the experience of IVF.

Plus a bonus section on how Dr Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” can bullet proof your relationship along the way!

What Couples Are Saying

This course was like a breath of fresh air. I felt like it as written just for me. After 3 years trying to conceive I had forgotten how to be kind to myself and neglected my relationship in the process. I now have a roadmap out of there!

Karen, Brisbane Australia

After having several skype counselling sessions with Lisa, the opportunity to have this information and guidance in the comfort of our own home was something we jumped at. Three rounds of failed IVF cycles had left us depressed and at a loss, this ecourse gave us some tools and hope to keep moving forward.
