While she now has her family, she resonates with those who are still on their journey. She draws inspiration from the practices that helped her to conceive. As stress is a big factor of infertility, Bettina primarily focuses on helping people to learn how to de-stress in the hopes that this will improve their fertility.

Fertile Hope Yoga

Fertile Hope Yoga is founded by Erin McCollough and these classes aim to help people regain control of their fertility journey. Erin believes in the importance of a mind and body connection that she helps you create through her yoga practices. Erin attempts to improve mental wellbeing by trying to reduce stress and anxiety, while also improving physical wellbeing to better both mental and physical health.

55% of those who attended her mind-body programme for ten weeks conceived within that time. According to Harvard researcher Ali Domar Ph. D, women are reportedly three times more likely to conceive on this mind-body course.  The course also offers hope for those who are struggling with their mental health when trying to conceive and experiencing fertility setbacks.

Take these practices you learn on the mind-body programme throughout the day. You’ll learn specific poses and mindsets that suit your daily schedule and as your practice develops, you may find it easier to make these connections between mind and body yourself.
