WOODSTOCK, N.Y., April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wannabe Moms are finding support on weekly teleconferences and workshops with http://www.fertileheart.com founder Julia Indichova, author of Inconceivable and The Fertile Female.

It has been 32 years since the first IVF baby was born, and the chances of getting pregnant and carrying a full-term pregnancy after treatment remains low: 28.2% for women under 35, falling to 10.6% for women 40- 42. In spite of the low success rates, couples can spend as much as $200,000 with the hopes of achieving a single pregnancy.
The inevitable disappointment that couples face may be one of many reasons why Julia Indichova's groundbreaking Fertile Heart™ teleconferences and fertility workshops, which focus on increasing overall physical and emotional health, have been gaining in popularity. Women from around the world - U.S., Canada, U.K., Italy, Israel - call in to Indichova's weekly phone support circles and travel to the Fertile Heart™ workshops in Woodstock, NY and New York City. And hundreds of Indichova's clients get pregnant and have healthy babies. Indichova's work heals the wounds that the $3 billion industry creates in women's bodies, hearts and minds.
In 1994, at age 44, Julia Indichova gave birth to a healthy baby girl, in direct contradiction to all that medical dogma of the day declared possible, leading to a book that documented her experience. Library Journal hailed her memoir Inconceivable (Doubleday 2001) as "an important consumer health resource ... the first such book written from the patient's point of view." In the last 16 years, Indichova's commitment to share what she learned with women who sought her help brought forth the Fertile Heart™ Program.
The seminars, an increasingly more appealing and financially feasible alternative to the $15-40,000 in vitro investment, focus on using food, movement, imagery, and peer support to increase overall levels of health and consequently increase chances of getting pregnant.
With no clear answers as to the cause of her five miscarriages, San Francisco mom Heather McLellan called into the Fertile Heart teleconferences and three months after implementing the Fertile Heart™ tools conceived a healthy baby girl. Similarly to McLellan, many women, who use the Fertile Heart™ techniques, conceive naturally, many after months and years of failed medical treatment.
"But pregnancy," says Julia Indichova, "isn't the primary goal of the work."
The aim of the work is to turn the crisis of "infertility" into a huge opportunity to strengthen overall levels of physical and emotional health and give birth to a more meaningful, fulfilling life, regardless of how we end up birthing our families.
"Infertility is a catchall diagnosis that is often linked with a chronic physical imbalance or an unresolved emotional conflict," says Indichova. "If we use technology to silence the body's call to address such issues, we risk not only our own health but also the health of our children. The immense cost to society is quite another subject coming into the light in recent years."
"It's nice to read a medical story with a happy ending. It's even nicer when we learn something useful from it for our own lives. So it is with Julia Indichova's mindful journey described in 'Inconceivable.'" -- Ellen Langer, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Harvard Medical School
"The Fertile Female made my heart sing and brought tears to my eyes; it's full of wisdom and truth, and it reads like a prayer. Bravo, Julia Indichova!" -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
