BECAUSE I KNOW YOU’RE TIRED OF HEARING
(AND YOU’RE PROBABLY THINKING:)
• How can I just relax when I feel like time is running out?
• How can I just relax when I feel like my body needs immediate help?
• How can I just relax when my dream of becoming a mother may never come true?
The last thing I feel like doing is relaxing because I’m worried something is really wrong with me.
WELL LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAS WORKED FOR HUNDREDS OF WOMEN IN THE EXACT SAME POSITION…
IT HAS BEEN PROVEN
that mindfulness, acu-point stimulation, yoga and nutrition can conceivably:
All of the methods we teach you in the Mindful Fertility Journal are based on protocols in this research that
we’ve taught to patients trying to conceive with astonishing results for a combined
30 years of clinical practice.
Step 1: Nutrition (Natural Treatment Protocols for 7 Hormonal Conditions)
Step 2: Self Acupressure & Yoga (4 Instructional Videos to Thicken the Uterine Lining)
Step 3: Mindfulness Meditation (2 Audio Meditations to Reduce Stress and Depression)
Ovulation Issues – Understanding why you are not ovulating and treating the root cause of your ovulation issue is essential to optimizing your fertility. The MFJ teaches you how to treat the cause of your ovulation issues naturally so you maintain a healthy cycle.
REPEATED FAILED IVF's
Repeated Failed IVF’s – Recovering from surgery involves reducing inflammation, addressing grief and treating the true cause of the condition that underlies the fertility challenge. When you do this, women often get pregnant naturally even after repeated failed IVF’s.
PREPARING FOR AN ASSISTED CYCLE
Preparing for an Assisted Cycle – The aim of this program is to help you get pregnant naturally and quickly. Some couples will need additional help. The dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations in the Mindful Fertility Journal will give you the best possible chance of conceiving using assisted reproduction.
PCOS – is the leading cause of infertility in women and contributes significantly to miscarriage. As PCOS is a metabolic problem, the treatment in the Mindful Fertility Journal involves stress reduction and changing the metabolism through proper diet, exercise and supplements.
Unexplained Infertility – It may be a nutritional issue that is preventing you from getting pregnant or it could be unexplained, in terms of the medical science, but treatable from a psychological framework. The comprehensive Mindful Fertility Journal teaches you an integrated mind-body approach to getting and staying pregnant.
TTC Naturally – You want to treat the CAUSE of your fertility challenges naturally. You are looking for researched and clinically proven practices to help address your specific issues so you can conceive.
Miscarriages – You don’t have a problem getting pregnant, you have a difficult time staying pregnant. Correcting nutritional deficiencies, reducing environmental toxins, improving the health of the uterus and the eggs while reducing stress & depression can impact many of the causes of miscarriages so you can carry to term.
EGG QUALITY ISSUES
Egg Quality Issues – Age and egg quality issues are a factor in fertility AND, it is really important and empowering for women to know that it’s possible to change the quality of their eggs over a three month period of time. All of the practices in the Mindful Fertility Journal improve egg health.
AUTO IMMUNE DISORDERS
Auto-Immune Disorders – Endometriosis and thyroid conditions can be treated through diet, lifestyle, supplements and stress reduction. We teach you how to test for and treat conditions like Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease and endometriosis naturally.
Hormone Issues – A number of hormonal imbalances can reduce fertility. Their causes vary but a good diet, regular exercise, supplementation, stress management and a gentle lifestyle detox as recommended in the MFJ are highly recommended if your hormones are the issue.
STRESS & OR DEPRESSION
Stress &/or Depression – Reducing stress and depression are critical for reducing inflammation, treating auto-immune & inflammatory conditions like endometriosis and thyroid conditions, treating adrenal PCOS and managing the treatment process while trying to conceive.
20's, 30's, OR 40+
20’s, 30’s or 40+ – You are aware that hormonal birth control, diet, infections, inflammation, ovulation issues, hormone health, stress, depression and age affect your fertile health. You want effective, research-proven techniques to treat your symptoms naturally even if you’re 40+.
At the HEART of the Mindful Fertility Journal are audio meditations and instructional

I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO…
THE MINDFUL FERTILITY JOURNAL
This program is to be used while you are trying to conceive Naturally (including IUI’s and medicated cycles)
and to prepare for an IVF/FET/Donor Cycle.
YOU CAN BEGIN WHEREVER YOU CURRENTLY ARE IN YOUR CYCLE
In this series of meditations we bring mindful awareness to the hypothalamus-pituitary connection, to the shedding of the uterine lining, to all aspects of the reproductive organs and to the feedback loop between the hypothalamus-pituitary and ovaries. We finish by bringing peaceful awareness to the developing follicles and to the effects of stress reduction throughout the entire body.
Self Acupressure and Yoga
The series of instructional videos for Phase 1 teaches you two powerful protocols for menstruation. Phase 1 is called the blood phase, which begins with the onset of your period. The goal of this phase is to properly shed the uterine lining, by focusing on moving blood and vital energy. Blood and energy must be flowing in the right direction, which is down and out of your body with a healthy flow. The Phase 1 menses protocol clears the uterus of old blood and tissue. This sets the stage for a fresh, healthy lining to support implantation and pregnancy. It can also help treat smaller fibroids, certain types of ovarian cysts, polyps and reduced vascularization (reduced blood flow) to the lining.
The recipes in Phase 1 are light and vibrant to maintain energy during this phase while hormones are at their lowest. The hypothalamus is signaling your pituitary gland to send follicle stimulating hormone to your ovaries. In response several egg follicles start the process for release. Estrogen increases.
In this series of meditations we begin to bring awareness to our emotional conflicts. We bring mindfulness to our belief in and felt sense of unworthiness, our fear, our conscious and unconscious demands on life and to the physiological effects of arguing with reality. We do this as we bring peaceful awareness to the development of healthy follicles and eggs, and specifically the development of one egg for ovulation. We also bring peaceful awareness to the sharp rise in lutenizing hormone and to the fully developed, healthy egg released into the clear and open fallopian tube.
Self Acupressure and Yoga
The series of instructional videos for Phase 2 is based on a research-proven acupuncture protocol to increase the uterine lining. Phase 2 begins about a week after you start your period and lasts until ovulation. The goal of this phase is to build blood and energy. This highly effective point protocol and yoga series thickens the uterine lining and helps healthy eggs to develop and mature for ovulation.
These recipes minimize carbohydrates as you have lots of energy right now and have lots of estrogen floating around your body. Toward the end of this phase you experience a sharp rise in lutenizing hormone which stimulates one follicle to swell and burst, releasing an egg into one of your fallopian tubes.
In this series of meditations we continue to bring the resource of peaceful awareness to our emotional conflicts. We bring mindfulness to how we project our feelings, to what is unacknowledged within us and within our relationships and again to our fear. We do this as we bring peaceful awareness to ovulation, the sperm combining with egg, the growth and tiny movement of the fertilized egg, the balanced hormones, particularly progesterone, helping the uterus prepare for implantation and the continued growth of the fertilized egg through the fallopian tubes. Finally we bring awareness to the healthy development of the uterine lining.
Self Acupressure and Yoga
This series of instructional videos for Phase 3 teaches you ovulation protocol. Phase 3 begins with ovulation and lasts for a week following ovulation. Blood and feminine energy have built to a maximum level and now the body is ready for ovulation. The goal of this phase is warmth and movement to support proper release and unobstructed travel of the egg down the fallopian tube. This ovulation protocol uses points and poses that warm the body, increases blood flow and reduces uterine and fallopian tube contraction. It also supports the hormones needed for ovulation.
These recipes focus on foods that both support ovulation and also help you stay balanced and free from sugar and carb cravings. You have rising progesterone in your body now, which keeps the uterine lining in tact. Your estrogen is rising and testosterone rises towards the end of this cycle.
In Phase 4 of the Mindful Fertility Meditations we begin to embody courage. In this work courage doesn’t mean fearlessness. You don’t need courage when there is no fear. You need courage as you wait for the results of your cycle, when there is fear. Courage comes from peaceful awareness, which we start to deepen into wisdom and love this week. We begin to bring courage and peaceful awareness to the fertilized egg traveling through the fallopian tube toward the uterus, to the implantation of the egg into the uterus, to the growth of the implanted egg and to the beginnings of the placenta and the development of the embryo.
Self Acupressure and Yoga
This series of instructional videos for Phase 4 teaches you implantation protocol. The goal of this phase continues to be about warmth, movement, and now building energy. Blood flow will continue to be the main priority in order to create the best environment for the embryo to develop. Implantation protocol delivers fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to the uterus to nourish the embryo, which helps secure the embryo to the uterus.
The recipes for this phase are nutrient dense, deeply nourishing and iron rich to help supply nutrients to the uterus and secure the embryo to the endometrial wall.
“Buffy, I just wanted to keep you posted on our progress. I’m PREGNANT!!!! When I first found out, I was in a state of shock. I couldn’t believe that something we had been hoping for was actually true. Now that I have had a little time for it to sink in I am getting excited and feeling happy. I know this is a touch and go time but my typical defense mechanism is to not get my hopes up for fear of being let down and I don’t want to do that this time. I am choosing to be HAPPY in this moment! Thank you for this profoundly helpful process. I think you are amazing!”
I want to share Vanessa’s Story with you…
Vanessa began using the Mindful Fertility Journal in November 2015
and by August 2016 she was 16 weeks pregnant.
To read more about her incredible story,
When Vanessa began the Mindful Fertility Journal she was three months away from her third FET transfer.
The most challenging part of her failed attempts, she said, was that the embryos were “normal” and no one knew why the cycles did not work. Vanessa (40 years old) was diagnosed with unexplained infertility and was terrified that her fear was causing the failed cycle attempts.
“The hardest part right now is to not think I did something wrong since the embryos had been screened and were healthy. I know in my head that is not the case, but I can’t stop blaming myself.”
As she began the Mindful Fertility program she had a series of revelations:
“Your program has brought up two things for me:
1) I realize that I have been so focused on becoming a mother that I’ve lost myself. And so I have decided to take 5 months off before my next FET to detox from hormones and get back to me.
2) I am beginning to notice just how much fertile energy I am using up trying to bury “negative” emotions (in quotes because I have decided not to think of them as negative anymore) like self-blame, sadness, anger, fear and guilt. I am using the meditations and journaling to express those emotions now. And I feel so much better!”
After five months of using the Mindful Fertility Journal to prepare for her next FET cycle, she wrote me this:
“I had my transfer yesterday, so am in the middle of my two week wait. I am living and breathing the MFJ meditations to try to maintain my functioning at the moment (I keep listening to Day 20 since fear of miscarriage is big). I half expect/fear my period to start any moment since it has every other time, but I keep reminding myself that I cannot focus on past stories for my truth now. It is my conditioned response to analyze every physical sensation, so being only aware and autonomous is a learning process. I do believe meditating and adding the daily yoga and self acupressure has helped. My husband says he thinks so too (this is mainly due to the fact that I have not had a meltdown yet and normally do by 5 days after transfer). I am trying not to give in to the urge to prepare myself one way or the other for the test results (next Monday), and instead focus on the here and now–not an easy task.”
I’ll never forget the day I got this email:
“My test results were positive today! I am pregnant (I was starting to wonder if I would ever be able to say that). It has not totally sunk in yet, but I am very excited. I was meditating outside today while I waited for lab results, and was aware of how grateful I am to have found the MFP and your support. It has been a long road, but I am also aware of how this moment is a beginning too. Thanks.”
Then I got this email:
“Well, it looks like my pregnancy has miscarried. The doctor doesn’t know why. It is disappointing on many levels. I am taking care of myself these next few days.”
I encouraged Vanessa to continue with the Mindful Fertility Journal practices during this crucial time for the mind-body.
A month later I got this email:
“My doctor is not sure how (there is a lot the world of science does not understand), but I am still pregnant!!! At my last ultrasound, it showed a healthy baby moving around with a good heartbeat. Today I am at week 9. After I thought I had miscarried, I did not feel like it was time to jump to the next step, so I spent a week just being in the moment, not knowing, just being. It was healing and I was ready to let go of this pregnancy if that was was was meant to happen. However, I am thrilled that it went the other direction.”
You could argue that Vanessa’s pregnancy is a total fluke.
But 62% of the women who have practiced The Mindful Fertility method have conceived and carry to term – many after repeated failed IVF cycles.
So for me and the doctors I’ve worked with, it’s hard to believe it’s just a coincidence.

- Author of Coloring Conception: Stress Reduction for Fertility Success and The Mindful Fertility Journal
In 2006, Dr. Colin Smikle, reproductive endocrinologist and Medical Director at Laurel Fertility Care asked me to develop a mind-body program for fertility at his San Francisco fertility practice.
I will never forget my first referral. A couple had just been through an unsuccessful round of IVF with Dr. Smikle and they were devastated. They had been trying to conceive for over two years. We first grieved the loss of the cycle together and then I taught her specific mindfulness meditations and sent her home with daily exercises to help her process her grief, physically recover from the assisted cycle and exercises to increase circulation throughout her body. We saw each other weekly and on the sixth session she came into my office pregnant (the old-fashioned way!), and she delivered a beautiful baby boy named Theo nine months later.
I met Dr. Smikle in the hallway after they shared their pregnancy news with me. He held out his hand to shake mine and said,
“Buffy, you’re at 100%.”
THAT IS WHEN I KNEW I WAS ONTO SOMETHING
I have been researching and refining these techniques and teaching them to women ever since with astonishing results.
These are researched and clinically proven solutions that work.
how can one program treat the difference causes of infertility?
The building blocks of fertile health are the same.
Hormone health, Auto-Immunity, Egg Quality,
Ovulation Issues, Insulin Resistance, Stress &
CAN BE TREATED NATURALLY
Diet, Exercise, Acu-point stimulation,
Supplements, Screening for infections,
Reducing environmental toxins & Effectively
Treating Stress & Depression
Yes, how you think and what you do everyday matters
(even the expression of your genetic code is influenced by your thoughts and behaviors)
the biggest threat to your fertility is the belief that someone else or something else can restore it.
YOU can treat the root cause of your fertility challenges naturally
HOW YOU PARTICIPATE in your own healing, daily. Intuitively you KNOW this but you
probably need help learning HOW TO PARTICIPATE effectively based on your UNIQUE
history, circumstances, symptoms, beliefs, mind and body.
IF YOU WANT TO GET AND STAY PREGNANT YOU WILL BENEFIT IMMENSELY FROM THIS PROCESS.
EVEN IF YOU’RE 40+
Right now, the painful reality is that…
THE FINANCIAL COST OF INFERTILITY IS HIGH, OFTEN IN THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE CYCLE.
Cost of IVF: $10,000
Cost of 3 months of somatic psychotherapy: $1800+
Cost of 3 months of acupuncture: $ 2000+
Cost of 3 months of daily yoga classes: $ 1680+
So The Mindful Fertility Journal could potentially
SAVE YOU $15,000 dollars!
when you order the mindful fertility journal, you will instantly receive
- A fully interactive fillable document with the downloadable mindfulness audios, yoga videos, acupressure videos, and nutrition guidelines.
- Bonus meditation for men, progress workbook, support call series, IVF/FET/Donor Cycle meditation series, thoughts/feelings journal and unlimited lifetime access
“When a friend recommended you I thought to myself, I
have had enough of this! I can’t do one more
intervention‚ so I half heartedly glanced at the materials you
sent me (including the commitment contract – great idea)
and I realized that I had never TRULY committed before
because I was so afraid of failing – this alone was life
changing for me, and then I just kept showing up to do
the work – like I never had before. This changed my life.
“I really can’t find words to describe how wonderful
my Mindful Fertility experience was! I am currently 22
weeks into my first pregnancy. My husband and I have
tried IVF 2 times, and this time it worked! I am absolutely
convinced that the meditations and acupressure video
series helped me obtain my best lining ever and helped
me conceive. The work has really helped me to relax
and feel confident that I am doing exactly what I need
to do to insure a healthy mind-body. I can’t thank you
enough for this amazing experience!”

A few of the miracles I’ve helped create.
Your fertility story is the very foundation of the Mindful Fertility process. Even if you’ve done tons of therapy, as you pursue your longing for a child, as your vulnerability increases, as you heal, change your behavior, change your state of consciousness, at every new level of growth and expansion, it’s your fertility story that determines your “success” because the image of a successful cycle is held in your implicit memory – deep in your sub-conscious mind.read more
