Deciding to have a baby is a wonderful and life changing time for any parents-to-be. However, no one can say how long this will take. The journey to getting pregnant can take longer than you might like and the waiting and uncertainty can be extremely stressful.

The links between stress and fertility are not reassuring. Stress can have a huge adverse effect on a couple’s ability to conceive a child. For women, the hormones produced during times of stress (namely adrenaline, catecholamines and cortisol) can reduce the production of one of the body’s major sex hormones. The reduction in this sex hormone can hinder ovulation, making conception less likely.

It has also been proven that stress can lead to a lower sperm count in men.

This is where floatation comes in.

Studies have shown the wonderful, stress-reducing effects of a session in a float tank. By floating effortlessly in the calm of an i-sopod floatation tank, your senses are not overwhelmed. The sensory deprivation afforded by floatation therapy helps your body to calm itself and restore equilibrium. When you float, your mind can relax since it isn’t processing much sensory input.

Not only does it provide you with a break from the worries of making a baby, it also allows the body to reduce the production of stress hormones such as cortisol. Therefore increasing fertility.
