Preparation for the Frozen Embryo Transplant begins immediately after retrieval. Best chances for a successful implant start with a balanced system.

Your Fertility Clinic Expert might recommend you complete the cycle after Retrieval and have a full natural cycle before scheduling your Frozen Embryo Transplant. This allows your body to rest and reset, ReproFlexology helps ensure this occurs at a higher level.

Weekly ReproFlexology after your retrieval helps to flush excess hormones and pain management medication out of your system to allow your retrieval cycle to end on a more natural note and often quicker than they would without ReproFlexology.

Weekly ReproFlexology during your natural cycle allows me to help your body be as balanced and healed as possible before heading into the FET protocols.

Your FET cycle will again include high levels of hormone stimulating medications to support the Frozen Embryo Transplant. Weekly ReproFlexology FET protocols support the efficacy of the Fertility Clinic Protocols and help manage side effects of the process like hot flashes, nausea, irritability.

ReproFlexology 0-48 hours after an FET Transfer can help soothe any of the discomfort experienced in the procedure, help with implantation of the embryo and soothe the mind during this anxious time.

Weekly ReproFlexology post transfer again helps support the efficacy of the hormone stimulating protocols recommended by your Fertility Clinic Experts, manages symptoms of these protocols like bloating, constipation, nausea, tender breasts, and supports a healthy implantation of the embryo.

Weekly sessions would continue after the positive pregnancy test until the First Trimester has passed and regular Maternity Care Schedule could be assumed.

remember when you were a child and you fought your naps with every fibre of your being and now the only thing you truly wish to do is SLEEP?
we underestimate just how important sleep is to all human function. sleep is required for system repair, brain function, hormone balance, stress relief, digestive work.. without the proper amount (recent studies are saying that with today’s Western lifestyle we should be getting NINE hours DAILY) we work in a continual deficit that affects our relationships, our moods, our productivity, and yes – our FERTILITY! it takes a physical toll on the body as well and we start experiencing aches and pains that we’ve not had before. our systems malfunction and after time we also lose the ability to fall asleep or stay asleep, perpetuating the issue to a deeper degree
REFLEXOLOGY is an exceptionally pleasant way to get back to sleep again. with Reflexology we can relax the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems to turn your brain off and switch your system into Neutral, we reset the Endocrine system and tap into the Pineal gland to start the Seratonin flowing freely again. We relax the Musculoskeletal system to remove any tension that might be holding you back from deep sleep and set you up for a proper rest.
Px: take Reflexology as needed and sleep like a teenager 😉

“my teen has super painful and heavy bleeds, and really doesn’t want to take the Oral Contraceptive Pill to manage it. can ReproFlexology help?”

absolutely! in fact, OCP should never be used to regulate or manage menstrual cycle problems because that’s not what it does, that’s not what it’s designed to do. OCP was designed to shut down your reproductive system (google menopause consequences because this is what OCP is) so that pregnancy cannot occur. it does absolutely nothing to balance hormones and reduce the period symptoms tour teen is facing, so once they decide to come off the OCP their symptoms are the same or worse as when they started.

with ReproFlexology protocols we are able to address the hormonal imbalance that is causing the period problem and help your teen come to experience a trouble free period – as is normal. in fact, the younger the period problems are addressed, the quicker the response time to ReproFlexology techniques because the body hasn’t been out of balance for years or decades.

ReproFlexology is not just for Fertility.. it’s for anyone experiencing any kind of cycle disruption or any disorder of reproductive organs.tag

RED CLOVER (trifolium pratense)

“One of the most cherished of the fertility-increasing plants is red clover (Trifolium pratense). Common in fields and along roadsides, it has bright pink (not really red) blossoms from mid-summer into the chilly days of fall. A favorite flower of the honeybees, the tops (blossoms and appending leaves) are harvested on bright sunny days and eaten as is, or dried for medicinal use. The raw blossoms are delicious in salads and nutritious when cooked with grains such as rice or millet.

To make a fertility-enhancing infusion, I take one ounce by weight of the dried blossoms (fresh won’t work for this application) and put them in a quart size canning jar. I fill the jar with boiling water, screw on a tight lid, and let it steep at room temperature overnight (or for at least four hours). Dozens of women have told me that they had successful pregnancies after drinking a cup or more (up to four cups) a day of red clover infusion.

It is especially helpful if there is scarring of the fallopian tubes, irregular menses, abnormal cells in the reproductive tract, or “unexplained” infertility. It may take several months for the full effect of this herb to come on and pregnancy may not occurs until you have used it for a year or two. You can improve the taste by including some dried peppermint (a spoonful or two) along with the dried clover blossoms when making your infusion. Treat the father of the child-to-be to some red clover infusion, too!”

Susun Weed – one of the most active online herbalist pioneers, has been one of my best friends in the last few weeks (month). An incredible source of well balanced information in an easy to read format, she makes Herbalism and getting your nutrients from your food easy.
I’ve been diving deep into the world of Infusions lately and have been so very pleasantly surprised at the strength of Water Medicines. Let’s see what Susun has to say about Oatstraw Infusions.
“Oatstraw (Avena sativa) is the herb of longevity in the Auryuvedic system of India. It restores nervous system integrity, emotional flexibility, and sexual flow. Oats and oatstraw are exceptionally good at nourishing heart health and moderating cholesterol. Oatstraw infusion (not tea, not tincture, not capsules) provides lots of protein, all macro- and trace-mineral in high amounts, and very high amounts of B vitamins – excepting vitamin B12.
A cup of oatstraw infusion contains more than 300 milligrams of calcium plus generous amounts of many other minerals. Its steroidal saponins nourish the pancreas and liver, improving digestion and stabilizing moods.
Oatstraw is best known however for its ability to enhance libido and mellow the mood.
Oatstraw infusion is another favorite of those who want to feel less anxious. Preparation is the same as for nettle infusion; remember to avoid tea bags and capsules.
The taste of oatstraw is softer and more mellow; you will enjoy it warm with a little honey. It is especially useful for those whose anxiety is combined with excessive nervous energy.
Oatstraw infusion builds deep energy for the next day, especially when you have been riding an emotional roller coaster. Oatstraw nourishes the nerves, easing anxiety and improving our ability to live with uncertainty.
Oatstraw infusion has been an ally for depressed women since earliest times. Oatstraw infusions have helped when muscles lack minerals — especially calcium and magnesium”


Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dioica)is a herb that strengthens the Kidneys and Adrenal Glands giving deep long lasting energy not found in caffinated beverages and greatly reducing Anxiety. It detoxifies the body and and helps to improve the nutrient uptake efficiency of your gut.
In pregnancy, Nettle Tea (Infusion) is often recommended for women undergoing a particularly painful birth, it helps protect against excessive bleeding (due to it’s high Vitamin K content) and can act as a coagulant. It also helps stimulate the production of milk and makes the lactation process easier.
Stinging Nettle relieves cramping and bloating associated with Menstruation and can reduce quantity of blood flow due to it’s astringent properties, and helps reduce water retention. For women undergoing Menopause, Stinging Nettle helps acts as a restorative and helps smooth the transition so the hormonal fluctuations aren’t as pronounced.
The combination of high vitamin C and Iron content make it ideal for dealing with Anemia by stimulating red blood cell production. Stinging Nettle has also been successfully shown to be used in Inflammatory Conditions such as Rheumatic Arthritis, Chronic Muscle Pain and Gout (but also think Endometriosis)
Stinging Nettle can also be used as a preventative for Prostate Health, but due to the path this treatment takes it cannot cure an already existing condition. Also, used with Palmetto – it can reduce the urge of frequent urination.
Stinging Nettle is also widely used in treatment of hayfever and other allergies.
There are no contraindications to the use of Nettle Leaf infusion. Nettle Root tea does have known side affects and drug interactions.
If you drink 4-5 quarts of nettle infusion weekly, you can expect to see results within 3-6 weeks.

HONOURING YOUR CYCLE: Menstruation • Winter • Days 1-7

Do you hate your period?

Do you dread its’ presence every month? Do you feel shamed and dirty every time you menstruate? Has someone scoffed at you or made a joke about “that time of the month” when you’ve showed any type of emotion other that what they felt was acceptable at the time? Maybe you’ve made the comment yourself, maybe you’ve berated yourself for feeling things more intensely during the time leading up to your bleed and for feeling sad and withdrawn during your bleed.

In Western Society – likely you learned about your period (if you were lucky enough to not start menstruating before grade 6) in a sterile Sex Education class in which the boys snickered and made groaning noises the whole time and the entire experience was embarrassing and medically sterile – lacking any emotion or room for deep conversations that should be held over this type of information – and you just couldn’t wait for it to be over!

If you are a mainstream family – likely periods were something that were shushed and hushed and not acknowledged as an everyday fact of life for 50% of the population. Likely you would shamefully hide your sanitary product in your sleeve or your purse as you snuck to the bathroom to tend to your dirty chore.

I want you to consider the possibility that you could love your period and honour your whole cycle. I’m not talking about the dancing in a field of daisies in a white muslin gown “love your period” idea that menstrual products ads pedal in a desperate attempt to get you to buy their wares. I mean to really understand it, to acknowledge its’ separate parts and what that means for your everyday. I mean to know your body and its’ deepest workings so that you immediately know when something is not right.

There is so much more to our Menstrual Cycle than PMS and bloating and moodiness and inconvenience. Our periods can teach us so much about how we have been treating ourselves, if we have been nourishing ourselves properly, and whether we have been respecting ourselves and honouring our own personal limitations.

So, what happens during our Menstrual Period or Moon that makes it something to celebrate?

Menstruation Winter Days 1-7

Our senses are heightened – taste, smell, sight, touch, and hearing, and as a result we are more aware of everything around us. We dream more! Bright vibrant and often prophetic dreams! Our energy has more inward focus which makes us less emotionally available for those around us. We go into hibernation, rest and repair. And we are in a process of death and rebirth – of this cycle to the next one, which makes this the perfect time to replace habits and intentions that are no longer serving you with new ones. And you will know what those habits and intentions are, because your intuition is heightened and you can see things more clearly during your Moon!

No wonder women who are in their Moon time are often considered prickly, sensitive and moody. Everything in their nature is telling them to recede, to spend time alone, to be quiet and reflective, and yet external demands of family, work, friends don’t just disappear. But doesn’t the knowledge of why you are feeling or reacting in a certain way change your actual feelings around that reaction if not the reaction itself?

So how can you honour your Moon time and even make it something you look forward to?

– Set aside a parcel of quiet time for yourself every day during your Moon to read or journal or just take a hot bath
– Prepare nutritious meals ahead of time and freeze them so you are spared this work when you are not feeling your best. This is an excellent practice if you have others who rely on you for nutrition during this time.
– SLEEP, sleep and more sleep. Sleep more hours during the night or schedule in a nap each day.
– Slow Down! Don’t expect to be as productive during your Moon as you are in other phases of your cycle.
– Schedule a self-care appointment each month during your Moon time like Reflexology or a Massage. Maybe you’d prefer a pedicure. Give yourself a reason to find joy in this time.
– Drink plenty of hot fluids that include ingredients like ginger, hawthorn and hibiscus. Go ahead and treat yourself with a little honey.
– Consider natural and organic cotton menstrual products or use a menstrual cup or cloth pads. Mainstream “cheaper” menstrual products come with the cost of more cramping and heavier flow as toxic chemicals and plastics (BPA and BPG) are situated right next to very tender mucous membranes.
– Recognize that any cramping and clotting (excluding Endometriosis/Adenomyosis pain) is the result of poor diet, increased stress and shoddy self-care and vow to do it better during the next cycle.

Period Pain

Painful cramps and major discomfort with your period, a major bell ringer for Hormone Imbalance, is common but not NORMAL.

Feeling muscle soreness or awareness similar to that of muscles after an invigorating work out is normal for the uterus during menstruation as it is actually contracting and working to shed the endometrial lining in preparation for your next cycle. Cramps and debilitating pain mean something is wrong… And it’s 99% chance your hormones are not in balance.

Things to do to rebalance your hormones:
· clean up your diet, remove added sugars, junk or fast foods, reduce wheat and maybe even remove milk
· get active! I don’t mean you have to train for a marathon, but take a walk or do yoga or ride your bike. Something small EVERY DAY will start making a difference.
· talk to a herbalist or naturopathic doctor about whether there’s some natural supplements, like Vitex (available at @goodnnatural ) you can add into your new healthier life that will expedite the healing and balancing
· seek hormone regulating therapy (like REFLEXOLOGY) and be consistent in your treatment plan.

R E M E M B E R : The imbalance of one cycle can follow you for the next 3, healing takes time, give your new routines the precious time they need to start working.

Things to do for the period pain in the meantime:
· drink warm fluids, lots of them, particularly ginger based or Hawthorne or Rosehip
· go for a walk to improve circulation
· take natural tinctures of 50/50 Cramp Bark and Black Cohosh (in water) for the pain, it’s much safer than Ibuprofen and just as effective if taken properly (available at @hollow_reed_holistic )
