This is our beautiful friend @emmalcannon, an Integrated Fertility expert, acupuncturist and author, with nearly 25 years experience of working with couples and individuals experiencing fertility problems. She is just one of the brilliant fertility experts who will be joining us on the 21st June at the @danesfieldhouse for our day retreat. We will be introducing you to all the experts over the next few days, but for now, we hand over to Emma who will tell you more about what she does: “It might be that you have already spent time ‘doing thing to improve your chances’. You do the yoga, you follow the food plan, you give up everything fun in your life and still you are not pregnant. It’s easy to blame your self and think; ‘well maybe I wasn’t positive enough’, ‘maybe it’s because I had a termination’, ‘maybe I drank too much in my youth’ ‘ maybe it is something I did or did not do”. I call this BARREN thinking and it comes from a place of lacking and self blame. My approach is to help you become FERTILE in body and mind, rich in resources, fruitful and prolific. To help support you either in person at my clinic or through my online programmes and on this  Instagram . My unique approach to fertility covers the medical history, lifestyle, emotions & spiritual. Wherever you are on your journey you will leave with a fresh perspective and plan of action.  If you are trying naturally , about to do IVF, have recently failed IVF or suffered pregnancy or baby loss, embarking on egg donation - whatever your situation. I  will draw on my many years experience of working with the medical profession, combined with my knowledge of complementary therapies WELCOME TO MY FERTILE WORLD OF ABUNDANCE WHERE THERE IS ALWAYS ENOUGH : YOU ARE ALWAYS ENOUGH.” If you want to join us on the 21st, click the link in the bio! #thebigreset #lookafteryourself #timeout #meettheexperts #freshstart #summersolstice #yoga #outdooryoga #headspace

We are delighted to be hosting our first ever fertility day retreat, on June 21st at the beautiful @danesfieldhouse in Buckinghamshire, (It’s where Clooney got married FYI!!) to mark the start of Summer and we would love you to join us! We have invited along the most amazing fertility experts who will all be on hand to answer your questions. The event will begin at 2.45pm with welcomes drinks, but why not book yourself a lovely treatment in the spa first? Take a look through the list of treatments at the @danesfieldhouse and book in advance. Treatments are an additional cost, but you will be getting a discount. At 2.45, head to the grand hall, where we will welcome you all and fill you in on plans for the rest of the day. The afternoon will begin with short introductions and talks from leading fertility consultants covering IVF in the UK and overseas, egg and sperm donation, surrogacy, nutrition, acupuncture and self care. To name just some of our experts, we will be joined by @listerfertilityclinic, @carefertility, @clinicatambre @csp_surrogacy @emmalcannon, @thisisalicerose, @suebedford.nutrition, @drlarisacorda. You will then have the rare opportunity to have individual time with each of the experts over a cup of tea whilst you get all your questions answered. At 6pm you will then be given time to freshen up and get ready for the outdoor yoga session being held in the beautiful grounds. With it being the summer solstice, the yoga session will help with that feeling of resetting, ready to face the rest of the year. After the yoga session, we will light the barbecue!! Our experts will be staying for dinner too, so there will be even more time for you to chat, in the relaxed settings of the beautiful gardens. As the sun sets, you are free to either head home, or stay the night at the fantastic hotel. If you do wish to stay, then please book directly with the Danesfield.

Whether you are a kardashian fan or not, there is no denying that @kimkardashian has helped break the silence of surrogacy on an epic scale. Being a huge advocate for surrogacy, she has spoken openly about her journey. Kim welcomed her fourth child into the world via surrogacy on Thursday and we send her all our love. “ I think it was the best decision I ever made. I think it was such an amazing experience I would recommend it for anyone. I am the biggest fan of surrogacy. All my fears of everything that I thought was going to happen; am I going to connect? Am I going to feel connected? All of that goes out the door and you just instantly feel connected.” We would love to hear from you if you have used a surrogate. Have you got any tips or words of guidance for anyone considering this amazing path to parenthood? If you want to chat to an expert about surrogacy in person, keep the 21 & 22nd June free, as Karen Synesiou , the chief operating officer and co-owner of @csp_surrogacy will be in the uk. Karen is responsible for the overall management of the surrogacy program and is an incredible human being. Karen will be joining us at our day retreat at The Danesfield House on the 21st June along with many other fertility experts. (We will be sharing more info about the retreat and our experts over the next few days). If you can’t make the 21st June, drop us a DM and we can organise a lunch with Karen on the 22nd. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your inspiring stories!!! #surrogacy #intendedparents #pathstoparenthood #surrogate
