Fertility clinic tries relaxing approach

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, October 31, 2007 | 0 comments

Fertility Institute LLP is opening this spring to provide weeklong fertility retreats for couples about to begin fertility treatment, already undergoing treatment or considering donor, surrogacy or adoption. Couples are provided with timely questions for their physicians specific to their current or planned treatment and will explore complimentary therapies to increase their chances of conception. Private and group sessions are designed to strengthen relationships of couples going through tremendous stress and frustration by improving communication skills, optimizing their sexual relationship and reducing stress. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine soon will be an ongoing component.

The retreats will take place in Kaua'i; Hawaii's smallest and furthermost island.

According to former Bucyrus resident Nellie Foster, "It is well documented that couples who participate in stress reduction programs have a 50-percent increased success rate of conception.

"We considered numerous countries and numerous locations in the U.S. The difficulties facing couples dealing with infertility are not limited to one country or one part of a country. Since relaxation is a key ingredient and getting away from one's day-to-day routine, even if for only a week, is so important, we felt Kaua'i would be the ideal choice. My one regret is we are only able to schedule 12 retreats our first year and we limit each retreat to 6 couples. We are unable to reach many in need of this type of support and that needs to be fixed."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
