Navigate your journey through infertility with confidence and peace. Gain valuable coping tools, and get inspired by a community of women tackling infertility together.
I know your struggle first hand
Ten years ago, my husband and I were exactly where you are. (Well maybe not exactly.)
We desperately wanted another child but were diagnosed with secondary infertility. It was one of the most difficult experiences I’ve ever had to deal with. We had one beautiful daughter but I always knew, in my heart and mind, we would have more children.
After two years of struggle and searching for answers we were blessed with a healthy set of twins. This experience, which so many of us share, led me to my life’s work. I never knew at the time that things would turn out better than I ever expected.
Although my ending is joyful and happy, getting through the fertility journey wasn’t easy. I knew going through my journey that if I made it out in one piece, I would help others also get through. I learned so much going through the process.
Fertility isn’t just about medical intervention
“In a large federally funded study 55% of previously infertile women who met regularly in a Mind-Body Infertility Program conceived within 6 months after the program, compared to only 20% in a control group, who used no mind-body techniques. We have been collecting data for 20 years on women who attend the Mind-Body Program and the results are consistent. About half the participants get pregnant within 6 months and 95% become mom’s somehow within 2 years”.

Let’s hone in on what is in our control
These are all in our control
Life Changing Support:
“I now have a toolbox of coping strategies.”
“I wanted to “cope” better when I started the program, but I have actually gotten a better understanding of myself and have surpassed coping.”
“I was willing to try anything to improve our chances at the fertility clinic, but was very skeptical of a mind-body program. In the end, I am so impressed and so happy to have been involved.”
Learn to breathe again
Harness trust in yourself, your body and your fertility treatment team. Learn to breathe again. Research has demonstrated that stress is the number one factor contributing to why patients stop fertility treatment.
The mind-body approach can help you reintroduce a sense of control and calm into an uncertain process; restructure your perspective, and give you the tools to recalibrate your experience.
Integrating a Mind-Body approach is also in our control & a fabulous way to channel anxious energy productively. I started the Mind-Body Fertility group 8 years ago. It was grassroots and took place out of my parents’ condominium party room.
Infertility can feel like the most draining and isolating experience imaginable. A mind-body approach can reinvigorate and restore you while creating connections and a sense of solidarity with individuals on the same journey towards parenthood.

Instructors & Facilitators
I am Amira Posner. A Social Worker and Hypnotherapist with a private practice geared to helping individuals and couples struggling with infertility. I was a social worker before I became a fertility warrior. It is 14 years later and I can confidently say that I have been there, done that and I am now here to help you. It was my very own struggle with secondary infertility that eventually led me to develop this group and my now my career. I am dedicated to improving your infertility experience.
I’m Simone, fertility doula and yoga instructor. When my husband and I started trying to conceive in our late 20s, I thought it would be easy! I didn’t even know that I had endometriosis. After a year, I needed to find some strategies to help me cope with the stress, anger and resentment that infertility was causing. I started prioritizing my self-care. I attended a few retreats, practiced mindfulness daily, and found Amira’s Mind-Body Fertility support group.
My experiences led me to quit my job as an elementary school teacher and become a fertility doula because I know how little emotional support most people get in the medicalized world of infertility and endometriosis. For the past few years, I’ve been co-facilitating the same support group that made a huge difference in my life!
