A Pre-Conception Wellness Seminar Tools for Fertility Success
Have you ever wondered if you or your partner were eating, sleeping, managing stress, or exercising differently would it improve fertility success? How about the affects of alcohol consumption, smoking, pesticides, plastics, and body composition on sperm and egg quality?
Please join RMA of CT for an interactive discussion on the benefits of preconception with a fertile lifestyle. We will share how to create a fertile lifestyle and The Fertility DietTM tips that will improve conception success and also help to support a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Partners are Welcome.
This one session class is conducted by RMA Nutritionist Carolyn Gundell, MS and RMA Nurse Eloise Downs, RN.

Pre-natal Yoga Every Thursday
This class was created especially for women who have been through fertility treatment. Class is designed around the special physical and emotional needs former fertility patients may have. Any woman, at any stage of pregnancy, is welcome to attend class (with doctor’s approval).
We will explore how the body changes through the different stages of pregnancy and learn how to continue to feel healthy and strong until labor and birth. Class will be a combination of relaxation, movement and meditation.

Fertile Yoga Classes Ongoing
Classes will be on-going; come every week or once in a while, whichever suits you. Come alone or bring your spouse, partner, friend or family member. Yoga, meditation and deep relaxation can help men and women experiencing the challenges of infertility. Fertile Yoga helps couples relax and relaxation can help one make more satisfying decisions, communicate more clearly with their doctor, and sustain treatment with a more positive perspective.
What you need:
* comfortable, loose fitting clothing
* a yoga mat
* bottle of water
* two pillows (optional)
* avoid eating one hour before class.
In Norwalk, (classes from 5:45-7:00) we have a peer support group for the first 15-25 minutes where there will be a chance to share experiences, lend support and find comfort from those experiencing similar feelings. You are always welcome to join us at 6:15 if you would prefer only Fertile Yoga. In Brookfield, (Yogaspace- classes from 6-7:15), we wrap up talking by about 6:20.
