Russell Davis from The Fertile Mind, is a Fertility Coach, Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Author and Speaker with personal experience of infertility. Russell removes psychological blocks to getting pregnant and has helped hundreds of couples all over the world fast-track their journey to parenthood. Russell believes too many couples go through treatment unnecessarily and the success rate of treatment is unnecessarily low because the mind is not treated.
Increased stress levels and other psychosocial issues make it harder for women to successfully become pregnant, and women that undergo IVF treatments present with higher levels of depression and lower self-esteem than their peers. Fertility clinics struggle to provide comprehensive psychosocial support to patients because of a lack of time and sufficient resources. To prevent, detect and treat mental health issues and increase IVF success rates, clinics need an effective tool for providing around-the-clock psychosocial support to patients.
Aura transforms the IVF experience by supporting fertility clinics to provide pioneering psychosocial care.
- Why we need better whole-patient support.
- What does best-in-class psychosocial fertility care look like.
- How to humanise your patient experience.
