While stress doesn’t cause infertility, infertility often causes stress. Meditation provides real stress-relieving benefits, in addition to its ability to help one focus on being fully present. This ability can help to reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and provide a sense of calm.

Yoga, meditation and other forms of mindful activities can provide great value, providing significant benefits throughout the family building journey.
