When we are looking to conceive, and under emotional stress, our body releases stress hormones including adrenaline and cortisol which sets off our defensive system sending messages to the body that is not safe or time yet to create a baby. It may also be nature's way of protecting you from conceiving at a time; perhaps you might find it hard to cope. Cortisol also prevents the implantation of fertilised eggs and can also reduce sperm count in men. Obsessing about conceiving can also release eggs that are not mature enough to fertilise.

As you breathe in, imagine that 'relaxation' is coming into your body and flowing through your limbs, reaching every part of you. As you exhale, imagine that all the stress from your body is being exhaled. After a few minutes, you should feel more 'full' of peace, and the stress in your body should be reduced.
