Review

I have been so grateful for these affirmations and meditations. I downloaded these mp3s after struggling to heal after a miscarriage and dealing with new pregnancies amongst friends, and have found the affirmations to be incredibly soul-sustaining in a difficult time. I find Belleruth's voice and words very soothing, and really like the music. I highly recommend this! November 2010 --Rebecca (reprint from Health Journeys website)

As a counselor and ordinary person, I have used your imagery CDs to help clients through truma and myself through stress and anxiety. After listening to the Fertility CD nearly daily for a month, my husband and I conceived. We had been trying to conceive for a year and 8 months. This is a wonderful tool to use to find peace with the process of conception and all of its possible outcomes. Thank you so much for your soothing voice and all of the wisdom your products have to offer! June 2007 --CK (reprint from Health Journeys website)

I am going to be beginning the process of invitro fertilization this summer. I listen to the affirmations each day and the first guided imagery tract as often as possible. They are beautiful and affirming. I feel more relaxed and confident about the procedure and about myself in general. I only wish the series was called "Fertility" instead of "Help for Infertility." Also, there is a line that says, "I love myself IN SPITE of my alleged imperfections." I replace it with "INCLUDING my alledged imperfections." I highly reccommend this series to anyone who wants to get preganant. It is lovely! March 2004 --Heather (reprint from Health Journeys website)

About the Author

Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, BCD Psychotherapist, author and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek is the creator of the popular Health Journeys guided imagery audio series. Her first book, Staying Well with Guided Imagery (Warner) is a widely used primer on imagery and healing. Her second book, Your Sixth Sense (Harper Collins) has been translated into 9 languages and called one of the most thoughtful and sophisticated looks at imagery and intuition. Her latest book on imagery and posttraumatic stress, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal (Bantam Dell), won the Spirituality & Health Top 50 Books Award and was released in paperback January of 2006. Highlighted in the 20th anniversary edition of their seminal book, Courage to Heal, Ellen Bass and Laura Davis call Invisible Heroes, the most useful book for trauma survivors to be published in the last decade . As Prevention Magazine noted, she has been quietly creating an underground revolution among mainstream health and mental health bureaucracies, by persuading major institutions such as the U.S. Veteran s Administration, the U.S. Dept of Defense, Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield of California, United Health Care, Oxford Health Plan, scores of pharmas and nearly 2000 hospitals and recovery centers to distribute her guided imagery recordings, in many instances free of charge to recipients. Recently she has been developing military-friendly resources with the help of the U.S. Army and the Ft. Sill Resiliency Center, and DCoE (Defense Centers of Excellence) has declared guided imagery one of their Twelve Promising Practices. Her audio programs have been involved in over two dozen clinical trials, with nearly a dozen studies completed to date. Efficacy has been established for several psychological and medical challenges, most recently for military sexual trauma and combat stress at Duke University Medical Center/Durham Veterans Administration Hospital. Naparstek received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Chicago. She maintained her psychotherapy practice for over 30 years and for several years taught graduate students at The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. Earlier in her career, she supervised psychiatry residents at Cambridge Hospital/Harvard Medical School and was Chief of Consultation & Education at the Woodburn Center for Community Mental Health in Fairfax County, VA. She also did a brief stint as a musical comedy actress at Second City and The Tip Top Tap of the Allerton Hotel in Chicago, and says that her musical comedy skills sometimes come in handy for teaching.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this cd about three weeks ago and for three weeks I have listened to this cd at least twice a day, everyday. Belleruth Naparstek is phenom. I wouldn't be surprised if she dealt with an infertility diagnosis herself because all the words and phrases she used were spot on. And this isn't just for women/couples going through IVF, it's also for people who are going through the process of adoption.

My husband even listens to it at night with me while we are trying to fall asleep. And any woman/couple who has gone through or is trying to deal with an infertility diagnosis knows just how sacred falling asleep easily is.

Ms. Naparestek's voice is so soothing, I feel so comforted and balanced. I realize that all the feelings I have are perfectly normal and that they pass. But mostly, that I can control my emotions and feelings just by staying in the moment and breathing. The background music is extremely relaxing too.

I will definetly be buying more of her cd's.

I can go on for days about this cd, but I think you get the point. In a nutshell, if you've been trying to deal with the horrible roller coaster ride of infertility, this cd is an asset.

This would be a great CD if the content was not so general. It's trying to address the needs of moms who are hopeful about being able to conceive on their own and moms who are looking to adopt. It would have been great if these needs were separated into two different CDs. Since I'm still hopeful I can conceive on my own, I found the adoption suggestions very distracting. It was hard to relax and concentrate on my intent after those came up. I would imagine someone trying to adopt would find the other content distracting as well.

My husband and I went through our first IVF proceedure after years of infertility and recurrent miscarriages. After the transer I was given this set and it helped me immensly, I think it's the reason I'm now carrying twins! The music and her voice are instantly calming and puts you in a trance-like state of peace.

I just bought several guided imagery CDs. I put them all on my itunes as well as additional tracks that I downloaded in order to browse all/compare and decide which ones to start using. By far this CD and Belleruth's voice stood out among the many I was deciding between. Her voice and words immediately drew me in, allowed me to relax, and the way she/the text seemed to understand exactly the way I was feeling and what I've gone through (3 years of infertility, 4 miscarriages, and now facing a 2nd IVF treatment with some fear and anxiety) was uncanny. Lately I have been observing in myself more negative self talk than usual and I knew I needed to do something to combat it. Rather than just asking the listener to "let go" (ie NOT be stressed which can cause someone to then stress over being stressed!) she starts by acknowledging and validating the feelings one might have (and she was exactly right in my case!!). This was so reassuring and uplifting - to first be allowed to accept the feelings I have, THEN to let them go.
She empowers the process without making it feel goal oriented. There is a subtle balance between doing these meditations (or any other practice like this) "in order to get pregnant" and/or simply in order to find a way to "just be", to allow, to trust the path that we're on. This CD does this very well - you feel that doing these meditations brings you closer to your child but at the same time it makes "everything alright" regardless. A tough balance to strike!
I highly recommend. And to everyone on this journey I wish you the very best. It is one of the most difficult things I've ever gone through. Blessings to you all and I hope this CD will help.

I purchased this CD last week. I especially found helpful her affirmations of, "The child that is meant to be mine will come, in it's own time" Her affirmations have helped me let go of controlling this process, so I can support my body and mind during this stressful time. Thi CD is so "healthy" - that's the best way I can describe it.

Compared to other meditations I have tried, I like Belleruth Naparstek's voice the best. It is calming without being annoying or comical. I also enjoy the imagery she presents, I can really relate to it. I have to say, when I start the breathing while doing this, I usually fall asleep, which she tells you is ok, because it is still working in your brain while you are sleeping. I love how she talks about the perfect being, selected just for you, will come when the time is right, without sounding preachy or saying "just relax and it will happen!" like everyone in life seems to like to tell you. She really makes you feel like it will happen in time and for the right reasons and it is reassuring instead of frustrating.

This was great to listen to anytime I would start getting really down about infertility or when I had to do something hard (like go to a baby shower!). I would breath deeply, listen to this CD, and always feel better. These meditations may not get you pregnant, but you will feel much better in the process. Best of luck on your paths to motherhood.
