Editorial Reviews

Review

On Fertile Ground really unveils the struggle couples facing infertility go through and delves deep into the emotional aspect of understanding what they are going through. --Alicia Isaacs

This book can be and should be read by couples who are facing life challenges other than infertility because it gives them the self-learning tools needed to face themselves and get to heart of change. --Alicial Isaacs

This book is an essential resource to people experiencing infertility and to their loved ones and support groups. It's also immensely valuable to just about anyone who wants to know and love themselves more. I will recommend it!Doris Helge,PhD,author

From the Author

     You will find the full story of how I came to develop a specialty in infertility counseling in the preface to my book.  Suffice it to say that it has been my passion for over 30 years.  Infertility is an intense mind/body experience and my training in mind/body therapy and clinical hypnotherapy has served to narrow the focus for infertility patients when it comes to getting relief from this ordeal.
     This book unlike any other in its field invites the reader to step back from the agony of infertility, scrutinize their reactions to it, and use the guidance in this book to "gain from the pain."  The stories of those who have resolved their infertility in working with me serve as inspiration and encouragement.  Though it may seem counterintuitive, it is entirely possible to grow from this adversity - to find the fertility in infertility.
     With all my heart, I wish you good luck in your quest to build your family.
Warmly,
Helen

For those who are struggling with infertility issues, this bock is like an oasis in the desert, a must-read for surviving the nightmare. Helen Adrienne's wise, compassionate voice holds the prescription for sanity and the opportunity to make the longing for a child a process of personal growth. What a treasure!

I can't tell you what a godsend Helen's book is. For anyone who has dealt with infertility as I have--or for anyone who has ever struggled to maintain a sense of control and self-esteem while facing any daunting life challenge-- "On Fertile Ground," is your tool for regaining balance.

Having battled infertility for several years, I had made an exhaustive search of all available books and resources on the topic. Prior to the publishing of "On Fertile Ground," there was no such comprehensive guide available. Not only did Helen's work make me feel understood, it also provided me with a set of tools that I could use to regain my footing and to take back my self-esteem. With an array of coping mechanisms, relationship fostering tools, and stress reducing exercises, Helen made me realize I really do have a host of tools at my disposal. I can actually emerge from this crisis, "the better for it" and I can come out on the other side in a better place of greater self-understanding than when I started. I wish everyone who has faced such an overwhelming challenge could have the benefit of this read. Thank you Helen!

Infertility is quite possibly the most trying situation a person, or a couple will ever undergo. It triggers all sorts of hidden inner insecurities and causes those involved to feel a loss of control. On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility helps place a sense of power back into the hands of couples going through the myriad procedures that may follow a diagnosis of infertility.

It is scientifically proven that hypnosis favorably affects the outcome of procedures used in connection with infertility. In a test group there was a success rate that was double that of the control group when the only difference between the two groups was that the test group received hypnosis prior to the transfer of fertilized eggs (embryos) into the women's uteri. Similar "letting go" techniques such as relaxation, meditation and self-hypnosis likewise favorably affect the outcomes of fertility treatments.

Helen Adrienne went through her own nightmares with the medical, gynecological society and it motivated her to change her life and become a force that advocates for those who need to regain that sense of control over their lives. Helen writes in plain English, so you are not left wondering what she is saying, or what it means. She remains at all times approachable and she writes with the ease of an old friend sitting down and having a casual conversation about a subject of interest to both of you,

Helen shows you coping mechanisms to help you go from feeling like a victim in the fertility process to aid you feeling like an active partner in the process. She helps you to develop an attitude where you detach from the outcome and participate in the process with greater ease.

This book weaves in thoughts and ideas from other sources who speak about the mind/body connection, the power of your thoughts, the purpose of healing old wounds, etc. and connects it to Infertility. This book has been so helpful because she really understands what couples and women go through on this journey and helps the reader to understand that this journey has a purpose. I have been working on that and this book has helped me to really push forward on this journey and not to give up. Hope is powerful and we have the power to re-connect our minds with our bodies. I recommend this book to ANYONE going through infertility, it is a wonderful comfort and the ideas are easy enough to follow and implement in your life!!

On Fertile Ground really hits close to home as I have a family member who's living through this difficult issue. On Fertile Ground really unveils the struggle couples facing infertility go through and delves deep into the emotional aspect of understanding what they are going through. But what's also fascinating is that this book can be and should be read by other couples who are facing other life challenges because it gives them the self-learning tools needed to face themselves and get to heart of change. A definite must read!

On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility
On Fertile Ground, Healing Infertility by Helen Adrienne LCSW is truly a great addition to any fertility professionals' lending library and a wonderful asset for anyone going through infertility. I especially liked The Lifestyle Profile,and The Self-Esteem check list which includes a beliefs inventory. You don't have to be infertile to appreciate many of the chapters in this book. Helen addresses the impact infertility can have on a marriage and relationships with family and friends. With real life examples and an intimate look at the medical and emotional process I felt that On Fertile Ground had something that everyone could relate to. Easy to read for minds that are often overwhelmed, this book offers some very real help and solutions for coping with infertility.
