6 Ways to Prepare for an IVF or FET Transfer at Home

Do you have an IVF or FET transfer approaching? An upcoming cycle can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time.

On the one hand, you’re eager to move forward on your journey and finally make your dreams come true. On the other hand, now that you’ve made this huge step, a lot more is at stake and you may be feeling emotionally and financially vulnerable.

First of all, you should commend yourself for having the courage to follow your heart and make the decision that felt right for you. I’m sure it wasn’t an easy one to make, and you probably never imagined having to make it.

There’s no right or wrong choice, only the one that is right for you and your family. It takes enormous insight, courage, reflection, and clarity to make these huge choices. And it’s a testament to the depth of love in your heart that you’re eager to share with your future child.

I admire you, and all of the amazing women and men I’ve had the honor of supporting on their journeys, for making so many tough choices.

Please take a moment now to appreciate yourself for your courage.

Because so much is at stake, you probably want to know everything you can do to support your upcoming transfer, whether it’s an IVF, FET, or Donor Egg cycle. With that in mind, I wrote the following blog post to support you during this time.

6 Ways to Support Your Upcoming IVF or FET Transfer

1) Stock up on positivity, inspiration, and humor!

Laughing, smiling, and feeling good releases hormones that help to relax your body, improve digestion, lower blood pressure and maintain healthy blood circulation. Prepare yourself by renting funny movies or having positive, funny or inspirational reading on hand. 

2) Eat the right foods.

“What are the right foods?”, you ask. First of all, you don’t need to go to any extremes like eating an entire pineapple every day or going raw.

But I do suggest you follow a dietary plan like the one I provide to the women in my signature program, the Fertility Activation Method.

A couple of the expert gems I share in this program are…

#1 Eat COOKED vegetables and AVOID Raw vegetables.

#2 Also, avoid dairy, sugar and excessive refined carbohydrates. 

3) Chillax

How do you chillax (that’s relax + chill in case you didn’t know) when you’re stuck with your thoughts for days wondering if things are going terribly right or terribly wrong?  It’s all about your breath. No matter what happens to us in life, we always have our breath to go back to.

When you start to freak out, bring your attention to your breath. Notice where you are experiencing the freaking out feelings in your body. Notice how they feel. Don’t judge how you are feeling, just simply observe your thoughts, emotions and physical sensations like a curious observer.

4) Stay Hydrated with Electrolytes

Staying hydrated is extremely important, so be sure to drink plenty of water. 

I also recommend getting plenty of electrolytes, drink coconut water, but not with sports drinks like Gatorade and Powerade. They are loaded with sugar and food dye and so I do not recommend these products.

5) Avoid High-Impact Exercise and Heavy Lifting

When your doctor approves exercise, I recommend walks and gentle stretching. You can read my blog on safe fertility exercises here.

6) Use Daily Fertility Pressure Point Activation

Studies have proven that stimulating specific pressure points before and after a transfer increases the success rates significantly. These studies are responsible for the growing acceptance of acupuncture and acupressure by Reproductive Endocrinologists in adjunct to fertility treatments.  

Fertility pressure point activation boosts circulation to the uterus and embryo to deliver fresh blood, nutrients, and hormones. Specific points also help to relax the uterus and prevent spasming.  Self-acupressure can be used throughout the duration of your IVF/FET cycle, as well as to support the early stages of the pregnancy.

I teach carefully designed fertility pressure point protocols based on research in my home program, Fertility Activation Method™. Sign up here and let’s get you happy, healthy, and holistically pregnant already!
