Thank you for your lovely comments:)

                                                      People say the nicest things!

I love to hear how you got on. Comments  seem a bit cringy, but people tell me they like them. If it helps … then here goes! For obvious reasons names aren’t given. Session with me are confidential. You may need to remind me to update this page – I don’t visit very often!

 

Working with you was amazing Helena.  I’d describe you as my fertility maven, guru and guide! You gave me a perfect blend of therapy, coaching, support  –  hitting the nail on the head each time. I appreciated your fantastic advice, always sensitive and sensible. You obviously love your work. Your approach was fresh, different and personal to me. My husband benefited through me and we were reassured with you being a midwife as you’ve seen it all before. My awful anxiety lifted so quickly.. ‘Enjoying each other’s company’ got a whole lot better!! We finally feel complete with our perfect little boy. You’re an inspiration – you prepared me for everything, even as far ahead as going back to work after my maternity leave!

I can’t thank you enough, Helena. Written off by a clinic after 3 failed IVFs and facing my 40th birthday  egg donation seemed our only chance to conceive. You believed in me and gave me hope. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s due to yourself I’m ready to give birth to our naturally conceived twins!

“You don’t think you need fertility coaching – I thought I was doing fine! I just wish I’d known about you sooner. My anxiety lifted, my head cleared and my mindset changed. My husband and mother noticed it. I loved being free to ask questions & talk about stuff I couldn’t discuss with family or friends. I got back my confidence and sense of humour. The mood improved like a weight off, and I felt hopeful again. Against the odds I’m a proud twin mom! I tell friends to visit you well before starting their fertility treatment.”

A simple and profound thing I discovered with you, is how the mind can literally change the body in such a positive way. My husband’s sperm count and quality normalised within weeks. We reconnected in our relationship.  I realised I mightn’t be pregnant yet – but I could be happy right now.  It was a relief for both of us. Three months later we did conceive naturally. I never expected to fall pregnant again after all we went through and I did.

Thank you, Helena, from the bottom of both our hearts, for what you did for us. I can’t believe this little man beside me, sleeping his head off, is 15 weeks old already. It seems like another life since I started with you, in the pits of misery. NaPro is great but it’s kinda slow, so it’s easy to lose hope and feel desperate. You were a breath of fresh air, different to anything else we did. We know it was you got us over the hump to pregnant!  Being a mother at last means everything to me. I wish I met you a whole lot sooner and everyone on the infertility rollercoaster gets your help.

‘Going to you was the turning point for me. You helped me change my mind about who I was, and the anxiety is gone. I went into the last IVF  with a totally different attitude, confident – on a mission! It made a huge difference us. I’m 34 weeks and feeling so great. I justwish I’d met you 5 years ago.

Heartfelt thanks to you, Helena. I’ve no doubt the reason I’m pregnant at last is due to the wonderful sessions I enjoyed with you. God bless you and your work.

“Helena Tubridy’s blog has a primary focus of infertility and IVF coaching/counseling for both men and women.   Having gone through infertility and IVF I know how beneficial it can be to have a professional resource for quality,  reassuring information.  I know how stressful infertility and IVF can be, which is why I find Helena’s blog special. She devotes a good portion of her blog to mental health,  including the topics of mindfulness,  general stress, hypnotherapy, CBT, and relaxation.  I believe her information could benefit everybody, not just those living with infertility. Helena Tubridy is a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist,  fertility coach, and former registered gynae nurse & midwife. I would not be at all surprised to find that she is an astronaut as well! She clearly has a love of learning and a strong desire to educate others and help them achieve not only a family,  but overall happiness and comfort with themselves.” Lisa, IVF mum & blogger at www.theworrygames.com

I’ve been bursting to share my news with you for a while! I had 5 Fertility Mindfulness sessions with you and I’m 32 weeks pregnant with twin boys! I just wanted to thank you for getting me here. You were very much part of my journey. You picked up the pieces after all the heartache – got me on track after six long years of all those miscarriages. From that first visit I felt I was in good hands – you understood what I was going through. Thank you forever.

I’m back on my second baby. I had my little girl three years ago. Your birth prep had me calm and ready even when I had to be induced. The midwife came around next day to tell me how well I did and how impressed they were with me. My husband knew what to do – and didn’t interfere! It went so well. I knew what I’d feel every step of the way so there was no fear. My contractions were manageable. Felt so proud of having a normal birth after everything we went through to get pregnant.

Just wanted to let you know that today I presented to 140 people for two hours, with no problem at all … so thank you very much for your help.

Our little baby girl Chloe, arrived yesterday at 1pm, she is perfect! Still can’t believe it, and nothing but gas & air. We’re on cloud nine! Thank you so much Helena. You gave me hope when there was none. You were with us for the long haul.

‘It’s like I’m smiling all the time now, and that feels normal. I never thought the panic attacks would just be gone.’

 I have been meaning to email for quite some time. I’m not sure if you remember me but I came to you over a year ago as my fiancé/now husband and I were having penetration problems and I was diagnosed with vaginismus by my doctor. I wanted to let you know  we overcame our problem and are now expecting our first baby. We’re really delighted to have a normal life in that respect and very excited about having a baby. I just wanted to thank you for the big role you played in us overcoming our problem.

‘No-one can believe that I stopped smoking and I’m so proud of myself. One visit, no cravings and I’m even doing a zumba class. My mother is amazed and my partner is over the moon. I stayed stopped this time and lost half a stone. Never looked back. Simples!’

 

Happiness is… freedom from anxiety

Happiness is… freedom from anxiety!

‘It’s 7 years since my eldest daughter was with you. The change in her was amazing and she did so well in the Leaving Cert. I wanted to thank you, thank you for that and for freeing her younger sister from her dreadful fear of flying. We had a great family trip to Canada, Niagara Falls and all. There’s no stopping her, she went to Carnegie Hall with her group, an incredible achievement.’
