IVF / IUI Mind-Body Program

Circle+Bloom IVF/IUI Program
IVF / IUI Mind-Body Program
One thing you can control and do for yourself during a medicated cycle– IVF or IUI

Joanne Verkuilen

We have taken the concept behind our highly popular Natural Cycle Fertility Program and tailored it to reduce stress and potentially increase invitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI) success. Working with leading REs, we developed these programs with the highest amount of care and attention to detail.

There are 18 unique sessions that correspond to the special requirements of the medicated cycle and include special attention to the synthetic hormones, advanced procedures and unique timing thereof.

This program is adaptable to shorter and longer cycles. You can skip, repeat, or double up on sessions as needed and still get 100% of the benefits. Remember, it’s not the exact timing that matters, it’s that you take time for yourself every day for an enjoyable, relaxing way to feel in greater control over your body and health.

“I would like to thank you for your fertility audio programs. I have bought the IVF program before going to my third IVF procedure and since 10 months I am a happy mommy of two wonderful kiddos. I listened to your audio every day during the procedure but I think the session the most helpful was when I listened to minutes after the transfer of two embryos. I felt like my whole body was warm, relaxed and welcoming and than the magic happened. I did many things to make the third round of the procedure work, including acupuncture, moxa, meditation, etc., but I also truly believe in the power of visualization and your program helped me with tuning my body into the pregnancy.” ~ Daria

“Thank you so much!!! Your IVF relaxation and meditation CD’s worked (again)! The first time we got pregnant using them was in 2013 (that was our 3rd IVF attempt), and now we just got pregnant a second time using them. Looking forward to listen to your pregnancy program!” ~ Maria

“I tried to conceive for 2 years and recently used Circle+Bloom each evening during my IVF cycle. Yesterday I found out that it worked and I am pregnant! I know that Circle+Bloom assisted in me staying calm and focused throughout the cycle. During the time right after the transfer, when I was feeling very negative and stressed I listened twice a day and that is how I was able to find some peace.” ~ Rose

“Circle+Bloom is amazing! IVF is a very stressful process and it’s hard to keep yourself calm, relaxed, and positive. I listened to Circle+Bloom each night, and we were successful this cycle! I credit Circle+Bloom for a lot of this success.” ~ Leigh

“A huge thank you to all at Circle and Bloom. I found you online almost one year ago, and in the time since then I have undergone extensive testing and procedures related to recurrent miscarriages, and a round of IVF. After almost three years of trying for our second child, I am now happily and shockingly 13 weeks pregnant. The meditations were helpful beyond words – I used the IVF series and the FET series, and am now using the Pregnancy series. I have recommended you to countless friends, as well as our fertility clinic in Toronto. Both our reproductive endocrinologist and acupuncturist commented on how relaxed I was during procedures, and I’ve lost track of the number of times my husband has said, “go do your meditation” when I’ve started getting stressed out. Thank you so much – you offer a wonderful service and I look forward to all my pregnancy meditations.” ~ Emily

“IVF is so emotionally exhausting. The drugs and the procedures are out of your hands. But I could control my attitude and my positivity, especially with the help of Circle+Bloom. I believe with every fiber of my being it’s one of the reasons we can finally say we are EXPECTING!” ~ Kelly

“We went on to try IVF and, after an incredibly smooth first IVF cycle at the ripe old age of 39, we fell pregnant. We’re currently 5.5 weeks along. I really feel that your IVF program, which I listened to religiously throughout my entire cycle, and, particularly while I was in each of my acupuncture sessions, helped me to visualize success, to believe in my core that success was to be easily had, and to, thereby, strengthen the all-important mind/body connection. Your meditation program played an integral part in our success. I’m now returning to buy your pregnancy program.” ~ Giselle



Detailed Description

Based on studies showing how our mind communicates with our body – along with the detrimental effects that stress has on fertility – we have created this medicated cycle tracking program that allows your brain to help your body accomplish the goals you desire.

By giving yourself 15 minutes per day to reduce stress and open the powerful connection of the mind-body connection, you can do something for yourself each and every day to help feel more centered and empowered during a very stressful procedure.

“Thank you for Circle+Bloom. I listened to it religiously during my recent IVF cycle this month. …the program helped me stay calm and grounded. It also helped me feel in greater control of the process — like I was doing something good and meaningful for myself. I looked forward to listening to the program every day. Joanne’s voice is soothing and comforting and you became a trusted and helpful companion to me during the ups and downs of my cycle.”~ Allison

Each session is different but follows the same basic structure. First, we focus on relaxation, allowing your mind and body to go quiet and enter into a deeply relaxed state. Then we begin our physically-based mind-body visualizations that track to what your reproductive cycle is doing during that time period. Lastly, we proceed through an exercise based on a specific emotional release or understanding. Here is a quick review of each sessions body-based visualizations:

Precycle Session A: Internalizing your own unique understanding of the mind-body connection and beginning to trust its intelligence and power. This enables to set the stage for all of the specific mind-body exercises to follow in the program. The Precycle sessions should be listened to before you begin stimming, and if you are doing suppressing prior to stimming.

Precycle Session B: Continuing to strengthen inner trust and dialogue between the mind and body, feeling its intelligence on a subconscious basis. Use of water visualization cleansing and preparing body for the cycle start. The Precycle sessions should be listened to before you begin stimming, and if you are doing suppressing prior to stimming.

Precycle Session C: Hypothalamus and pituitary visualization exercises seeing balancing and relaxing throughout this part of the brain. Continuing to focus on mind-body intelligence and communication to prepare for cycle start. The Precycle sessions should be listened to before you begin stimming, and if you are doing suppressing prior to stimming.

“Each of the IVF sessions have such wonderful messages, I want to make sure I do not miss any of them. My body is really responding to the messages, my stress is way down, joy is way up and my body is on track with response per the doctors.” ~ Melissa

“Since I learned about Circle + Bloom, I’ve gone through 3 IVF attempts, 1 complete IVF, and an IUI. Needles to say, this journey has been difficult and the IVF/IUI meditation program has provided me such solace through this experience. I don’t have a “pregnancy success” story to share just yet, but I can certainly attest to the serenity and relaxation I have gained through the meditations. I highly recommend any of Circle + Bloom’s programs to anyone who wants to explore the benefits of mind-body work.”~ Anonymous

Cycle Day 1+2: Focus on complete and healthy acceptance of synthetic hormones, welcoming on every level for optimum effectiveness. Seeing the communication between the hypothalamus-pituitary and shedding excess anxiety. This should correspond with the first day of your stimming medications.

Cycle Day 3+4: Balancing of anxiety with endorphines and positive feelings throughout the body, releasing excess cortisol as needed. Acceptance of hormones and medications in an open and positive way for optimum effectiveness.

Cycle Day 5+6: Visualization focusing on ovaries, follicles and eggs and seeing movement, positive energy, brightening – all the while completely trust the mind-body intelligence to nominate the highest quality eggs for this special cycle.

Cycle Day 7+8: Hypothalamus-pituitary in communication with ovaries with just the right amount of hormones. Starting to picture and visualize the developing follicles within the ovaries.

Cycle Day 9+10: Feeling harmony inside and really allowing body on a cellular basis to accept complete relaxation for optimum balancing of all reproductive function. Visualization of uterus and the beginning phases of preparing for the fertilized egg.

Cycle Day 11+12: Feeling, seeing and visualization the abundance of follicles and future eggs in ovaries and how the ovaries are creating a handful of special eggs for ovulation. Seeing ovaries brightened, energized and follicles as full and round, plump with a soft pliable surface.

“Last summer I purchased your IUI fertility meditation. I used the meditation in conjunction with acupuncture and found myself totally relaxed. We were successful on our first attempt! On April 30, 2013 we had a healthy, beautiful, baby boy. Thanks so much. I always believed in the power of meditation but never imagined we’d be this lucky!”~ Carolyn

Trigger Shot & Extraction (IUI – Ovulation): Special visualization allowing for complete dissolution and release of any negative energy internally. Visualization of trigger shot as positive energy coming into body and doing exactly what it should with special attention to the *acceptance* of this medicine. Preparing body to be in a completely relaxed and open state without any hindrance or pockets of stress or any kind of blockages. Seeing ovaries as soft and pliable for egg aspiration.

Cycle Day 13 + 14: For the time in between egg extraction and transfer, we focus on internalizing the miraculous connections being made, and bringing that back into the body for emotional connection to the embryo. Focus is on uterus preparation to accept fertilized eggs, with special focus on progesterone, etc.

Transfer (IUI – Insemination): Designed to be listened to multiple times during this procedure – before, during and after. Focus on having ultimate feelings of openness, warmth, and acceptance as much as possible – feelings of abundance. Seeing blood-oxygen moving directly into your hands and reproductive areas, warming everything. Visualizing inside your uterus and seeing the embryo come inside, welcoming on a physical basis.

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Circle and Bloom! I am currently 17 weeks into my first pregnancy. My husband and I have tried IVF 3 times, and this time it worked! I am absolutely convinced that the guided imagery cds helped me obtain my best lining and subsequent success. I can’t thank you enough for these amazing products!” ~ Lily

Cycle Day 16+17: The commencement of the two-week-wait, with suggestions of having feelings of gratitude, abundance and what is happening inside uterus. Hormones moving in just the right amounts at the right time…warmth and acceptance on a cellular basis.

Cycle Day 18+19: Exploration of emotional state of being, letting go of anxiety or other negative feelings, or exploring them to understand them on a greater level. Focus on uterus, sending relaxation to the uterus…seeing the tiny fertilized eggs float about in warmth and abundance. Walls of uterus creating the perfect landing spot with just the right amount of progesterone.

Cycle Day 20+21: Feeling and sensing the energy that is constantly working toward the development of the embryo(s). Seeing the implantation of the egg(s) on walls on uterus. Emotional feelings of abundance through a visualization exercise of helping someone in need.

Cycle Day 22+23: Focus on balance, blood and oxygen flow, hormones to uterus as needed using your mind-body intelligence and intuition. Seeing the healthy growth and development of the embryo(s) inside uterus.

Cycle Day 24+25: Visualizing the inside of the uterus, and feeling and sensing a bond already. Seeing growth with intention, strength and love. Emotional exercise of feeling pride in the process you have undergone in order to bear the life of another. Complete unselfishness.

Cycle Day 26+27: Using the mind-body connection to support the uterus in anyway that it needs using intuition as your guide. Trusting your intuition. Emotional exercise to focus on how you have changed throughout your motherhood journey.

“I listened to your IVF program after 2 failed attempts to get pregnant. I truly believe this calming influence at a time of stress and small hope were contributors to falling successfully pregnant. We are over the moon with excitement as we now count down the last few weeks till our little miracle joins us.” ~ Karen

“Somewhere between my first fertility treatment I found your program and something inside of me said I have to listen to this so I purchased your IVF/IUI program. I think it was just before the trigger shot. Then a long 14 days of waiting! Today, I did the test and it is positive! We are so happy! My husband’s 30th bday is exactly today. The best gift ever! I hope that everything will be ok and I am looking forward to purchasing your program for pregnancy! From the bottom of my heart thank you for what you are doing! It is amazing!” ~ Alenka

“I recently used your IVF/IUI Circle+Bloom program, and I have to admit I was first skeptical, but at that point it was my 15th month of trying to conceive, and I had just received my 3rd IUI. I was losing hope fast, but I really feel that your program helped me take away the stress of daily life and trying to conceive. It made me really focus and visualize. 16 days later, I received my very first positive pregnancy test. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I am now 7 weeks along, and could not be more thankful. Thank you for playing a part in my husband and I receiving what we’ve been hoping for for so long. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!” ~ Nicole
