Opening the Door to Fertility

Provided by: 

Scan the stacks at your local library, and you’ll find shelves bowed with books on how to get pregnant. From the looks of it, one of our most

primal functions—the creation of new life—seems a terribly complicated task. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what it has become for the 6.1 million women and their partners currently struggling with infertility. In their desperation to conceive, many people find themselves navigating the conventional fertility path with all its confusing twists, turns, and dead ends: beginning with invasive tests, progressing to harsh fertility drugs with countless side effects, and culminating with in vitro fertilization if all else fails.

For the most extreme cases of infertility, those in which one or both of the partners have medical issues preventing pregnancy, that path—bumps and all—might actually be the only way to get pregnant. But holistic physicians like Joel Evans, MD, OB/GYN, author of The Whole Pregnancy Handbook, find that people too often resort to drastic treatment before ever giving their innate fertility a chance to prove itself. According to Evans, “60 to 70 percent of illnesses are lifestyle related. So it would make sense to treat lifestyle issues or do lifestyle interventions, and then use medicine for the problems that are left.”

Our special section aims to shift the dialogue about infertility, so we focus on each person as an innately fertile being, who needs help manifesting this fertility, not as someone suffering from an acute dysfunction. Some approaches we explore are new and some are tried-and-true, but all of them will support your mind, body, and spirit as you find your path to parenthood.

Maya Abdominal Massage

By Catherine S. Gregory

Bring the uterus into balance, and the whole being will follow.

My path to motherhood came as a surprise. I didn’t expect to jumpstart my fertility on the beaches of the Yucatan, but that’s exactly what happened when I booked a relaxing, two-hour Maya massage session with a traditional healer. After the massage, the healer told me through a translator that women sought his work when they had difficulty conceiving. He looked me in the eye as he spoke to me, and the translator reported that I no longer had fertility problems.

I was taken aback because I hadn’t mentioned my concerns about not being able to conceive. But his words proved true. Not long after returning home to a loving reunion with my partner, we discovered I was pregnant. I have since learned that my massage in Mexico included Maya uterine massage, an ancient technique used to reposition a displaced uterus. According to the Maya, if a woman’s uterus is out of alignment, so is her whole being. Returning the uterus to its proper position in the pelvis brings a woman into a state of balance—and, in my case, into an instant state of fertility.

During my annual exams, gynecologists had often mumbled something about my tipped uterus, but whenever I probed for more information, they had...
