Letting go and relaxing increases chance of IVF successWomen undergoing IVF would be better “letting go” and relaxing than believing that exercise or prayer can increase their chances of having a child, according a new study.

Would-be mothers who coped with the stress of fertility treatment by accepting that there was little they could do to change the outcome were more likely to get pregnant, psychologists found.

Those able to ‘go with the flow’ were almost twice as likely to conceive, researchers found, after they adjusted for the patients' age, cause of infertility and the number of cycles.

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.
