Yesterday I read a BBC News Magazine article called ‘I wish IVF had never been invented’. I have, and currently am, working with couples undergoing IVF so it was insightful to hear the thoughts and views of those who have undergone this treatment. It wasn’t till I started working with IVF patients that I found out what this treatment can cost. Do you know?
It’s from £6,000 to £10,000 per treatment!
Clearly, you have to really want children to undergo this treatment. For some that’s an entire year’s wages and for many, it’ll wipe their savings out, especially if it requires more than one treatment. It’s not without risks, which include:
- hot flushes
- feeling down or irritable
- nausea and vomiting
- shortness of breath
- abdominal bloating
- ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
- ectopic pregnancies
- multiple births
…and to top that off, the odds are against it actually working, especially as the woman gets older. According to the UK Government Human Fertility & Embrology Authority:
A woman’s ability to conceive a child reduces with age. If you are using your own eggs, on average, the younger you are the higher your chances of success.
In 2010 (the year for which the most recent data is available) women having in vitro fertilisation (IVF) using fresh embryos created with their own fresh eggs, the percentage of cycles started that resulted in a live birth (national averages) was:
- 32.2% for women aged under 35
- 27.7% for women aged between 35–37
- 20.8% for women aged between 38–39
- 13.6% for women aged between 40–42
- 5.0% for women aged between 43–44
- 1.9% for women aged 45 and over
Please note that IVF and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) success are very similar and as such are no longer presented seperately. The above results are for both IVF and ICSI together.
So with a big financial and physical cost, together with the emotional stress, IVF is clearly not a one-way ticket to happy families. At the same time, I know that IVF is not the only option for enhancing fertility.
Hannah was the first woman to call me to ask if I could use my Feng Shui formulas to help her and her husband start a family. This was in 2001.
Hannah used Feng Shui to get pregnant
I did a Feng Shui consultation at her house. They’d had a lot of trouble conceiving and had heard that “bad Feng Shui” could prevent pregnancy, so I wanted to make sure that the Chi outside her house and the Chi inside her house was correct. As she had already checked with her doctors and the doctors could not find anything wrong with her, she decided to look on the internet and find an authentic Chinese Feng Shui consultant. She told me that when she saw my face, she knew that I would be the one to help her. And she was right! The result is in the photos! I did some Feng Shui magic, and she conceived within only a few months and then her baby was born!
It still gives me a big, cheeky grin to this day to say I got Hannah pregnant! It was lovely to hear from her sometime after to say first she was pregnant and later that she’d given birth. It was a very special day to go by sometime later and see the happy family:
Hannah’s handsome baby!
Since Hannah, I’ve worked with several other cases where either getting pregnant or carrying to completion have been challenges. Some of the couples have had IVF or are undergoing IVF when I come to support them and I’m pleased to say that there are more happy families since I used Feng Shui for pregnancy with them:
Pauline gets pregnant!
Pauline is from California, USA and her husband Peter is Scottish. They had difficulty with conceiving as well and had already tried different alternative therapies. But nothing did the magic for them. Until they called me into their house to check their Feng Shui.
In Pauline’s case, I did the Feng Shui and recommended certain changes be made. However, I could still feel there was something else that needed changing. Part of Pauline’s house is a very old house, from over 100 year old. There had been a lot of past energies still remaining and this I felt was what was hindering them on top of the Feng Shui. So I told Feng Shui that I also recommend that I do a Buddhist ritual to “space clear” the energies of the place.
Being a Californian, a spiritual woman and believing that all things happen for a reason, Pauline agreed to my recommendations. So I came back to her house to do the Buddhist ritual and cleared away the old negative vibes from the people who lived there before her and her husband.
And guess what? Soon after that, Pauline was pregnant! I was Pauline’s new best friend after that as well. And Pauline calls me to do more Buddhist rituals for her and her husband whenever they need a boost in his career or help with anything else. Pauline is now a firm believer in Feng Shui and sees me for Feng Shui every year.
Jay and his wife were feeling the pressure after having problems with conception after years of trying. Being Asian, the pressure could be even greater as Asian parents expect grand children quite quickly. They do not like you to waste time.
Jay told me him and his wife were starting to feel quite bad when so much time had passed and his family and relatives kept asking them when. After I checked his Feng Shui, I laughed and told him very confidently in his case, I’m pretty sure it was just a case of them having absorbed bad Feng Shui energies. I made a bargain with them and said if you get pregnant, will you let me have some pregnancy photos and send out some good Karma to the world so that they know by changing their Feng Shui could be their answer? They agreed. And that is how I have gotten these photos of them after she was about 8 months. I do not know why, but pregnant women seem to like wearing black!
The Feng Shui stork calls for another couple!
I have known Sussan since I was in high school and it was by chance that she had moved to London because her husband lived here. I did not know that Sussan had problems with getting pregnant until she told me. She had been trying for more than 3 years! And as she was nearing the big 40, her heart was sinking.
Inspecting Sussan’s pregnancy
“Oh Sussan, come on, we are friends. You should not be so shy or embarassed. You should have told me earlier. The faster you start getting help, the faster you can try and get pregnant.”
In Sussan’s case, her apartment she was living in was totally bad. I advised her to move and get acupuncture after looking at her Chinese Bazi charts. Certain charts show the woman or man or both need extra help. I was very frank with her. Sussan was a cheapskate and did not want to pay for acupuncture. I told her you will forget how much you paid, but you will increase your chances of having a baby. Nothing is guaranteed in life, so how much do you want to have a baby?
If you want to have a baby, then you will do whatever it takes. It is shocking what cheapskates people can be. They can buy designer outfits, yet when it comes to their health and fertility, well being, that is where they want to stop spending. Anyways, after I told her off, she did what I told her to do and the photo shows you the result.
There are more happy baby cases I have not written about. Most of my time, I’m driving up and down the country and seldom have time to write as much as I would like.
It was a recent visit of Pauline’s house that prompted me to finally get this article written for all the women who need hope and help! If I don’t tell you about this, then how will you know? You just won’t. Simple.
How much is a baby worth to you? If it is worth it, then try Feng Shui. It is not 100% guaranteed. However, it is a lot cheaper than IVF which costs from £6,000 to £10,000 and hard on your body with all the drugs you have to take and terrible side effects.
What people need to remember in life is this:
Know what you want and be willing to pay the price!!
If bad Feng Shui is the cause, then good Feng Shui is the cure.
You just do not know until you try. If you do not want to try, then you will be childless and regret into your old age.
So who would like to be my next success story? Is it worth a try? I think so, it is much cheaper than IVF and who knows what else Feng Shui could help you with?
Don’t just sit there feeling sorry for yourself, if you have been doing that and not taking any action, that is called giving up and self sabotage. If you want something you must go for it.
