Publisher Comments:

The first mind-body program that helps women and couples to discover and work through emotional and psychological barriers to conception, The Language of Fertility teaches methods of conscious fertility that can work with or without the assistance of your physician.

Niravi B. Payne is an internationally recognized pioneer in mind-body fertility therapy who has counseled hundreds of clients from all over the United States and abroad. Her clinical experience has shown that reproductive problems, including miscarriages, difficulty in conceiving, and low sperm count, are directly linked to attitudes, beliefs, and family dynamics that reach back into your childhood and affect your emotional life, your reproductive system, and your fertility today. Payne has adapted her sought-after Whole Person Fertility Programsm, which she teaches to other therapists and uses with great success with her clients, to make it available and accessible to readers for the first time in this book.

The Language of Fertility challenges the traditionally held view that problems with fertility are due to purely a medical condition to be treated with drugs and surgery. Niravi Payne explains how women's and men's bodies and minds can be so affected by generations of their family's beliefs and patterns of behavior that their natural fertility and ability to conceive can be blocked. Her unique techniques of self-analysis help women, men, and couples become conscious about how they need to change their minds and their lives to reclaim their natural fertility and conceive and give birth to a baby. Her methods are helpful at any time--whether used while undergoing medical reproductive treatments, between treatments, or independent of any medical treatment.

In the Whole Person Fertility Programs, Payne leads readers through the same exercises, family tree mappings, meditations, visualizations, and journal-writing that have helped her clients break through the emotional barriers to conception and have led them to heal their whole lives--whether or not pregnancy occurs. And she tells dozens of inspiring and compelling case studies from her own practice, in which her clients have healed their relationships to their spouses, siblings, and other family members, and as a direct result have been able to conceive.

The Language of Fertility also establishes a new way of thinking and talking about fertility that forever banishes the "too oldisms" that many women in their thirties and forties often hear, including outdated and inaccurate terms such as "unexplained infertility" and "old eggs." Niravi Payne debunks ageist myths through an eye-opening exploration of the historical and sociological factors that profoundly affected the reproductive lives of the millions of female baby boomers who were able to delay childbearing. In addition, she allays the growing concerns of women in their twenties and early thirties who are waiting to have children until later in life and are concerned about their future ability to conceive.

By committing to the healing process of the Whole Person Fertility Programsm, you will increase your chances of conceiving and carrying to term the baby you long for. Whether or not you eventually do conceive, you will gain such immense emotional and psychological insight that you will reclaim your birthright as a whole, vibrant person.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 255-258) and index.
