Gravitz Eastburn, L. (2006) It’s conceivable! Hypnosis for fertility. Vancouver, BC, Canada: Trafford Publishing. Reviewed by Donald F.

This small book of 136 pages discusses the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapeutic techniques in the treatment of infertility. It focuses primarily on the subset of infertile couples described as having “unexplained infertility” – i.e., all the usual tests of fertility, including semen analysis, ovulation, menstrual cycle, etc., are normal. Stress is considered to be a significant factor in the lack of conception in many of these couples. There is little discussion of other physiologically-based mechanisms of infertility, and considerations of medical management of infertility and medical conditions leading to infertility problems are also largely beyond the scope of the book. The style of It’s Conceivable! is casual and informal, rather than scholarly, suggesting it may be more intended for lay readers. There are a few references to scientific articles about hypnosis and infertility, but no analysis or statistics, and cases are presented anecdotally to illustrate how the author utilizes hypnosis in infertility therapy. Her metaphors are thoughtful and useful, and the value of hypnosis as an effective management of stress is well presented; stress is considered a significant factor in cases of unexplained infertility. Treatment failures are not discussed, and this is a shortcoming. The book is organized in 16 chapters, beginning with a brief history of hypnosis, and progressing to discussions of various techniques for management of the infertile patient, for management of labor, and for dealing with several other pregnancy-related issues. There are frequent mentions of Hypnofertility, a program developed by the author for the management of infertility that is separately available on CD, which was not available for review. This book invites attention to an area of hypnosis-based therapy that has received only scanty attention in the formal scientific literature on hypnosis and in popular literature dealing with infertility. The lack of investigation in this area is intriguing, as there appears to be a substantial portion of the infertility patient population that stands to benefit from utilizing hypnosis and stress management techniques. Thus, the author performs a service by inviting attention to hypnosis as a treatment for certain types of infertility problems, as well as underscoring its use in childbirth and stress management. The book will be a helpful addition to the libraries of those professionals using hypnosis in obstetrics and those involved in the management of infertility. 147
