Study Finds 55% Conceive Following Mind Body Program
The Fountain Fertility Mind Body class is now being offered virtually! The class is taught by two mind-body trained counselors, Kathy Fountain LMHC and Jocie Fletcher, LCSW
The amazing success rates are the results of on-going research into the positive benefits of the Mind Body program, created by Dr. Alice Domar -director of Mind/Body Services at Boston IVF – more than 30 years ago. Research consistently has found that reducing psychological stress can not only improve physiological symptoms, but can also increase pregnancy rates.
In fact, in one recent study, 55% of previously infertile women who met regularly in a Mind Body class conceived within six months after the program, compared to only 20 percent in a control group that used no mind body techniques.
The Fountain Fertility Group has been teaching a version of the mind body program in the Tampa Bay area since 2007 – that’s 14 years! In that time hundreds of women have found effective coping skills to manage anxiety, take back control of their lives and most find success in becoming moms.

In addition to the mind body techniques, the class is also excited to offer the following:

*A special couples class to help you and your partner communicate better!
