FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Women struggling to get pregnant are turning to yoga to calm their environments making In Vitro Fertilization more successful. 

After helping more than 4,000 women become moms, Dr. David Diaz of West Coast Fertility Center at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital decided to offer a wellness program.

Dr. Diaz hired a former patient, to teach women who want to become moms to do yoga and other wellness exercises that keep the mind and body calm.

“If she’s very tense and nervous I think that that makes blood vessels constrict and diminish blood supply to the vital organs,” said Dr. Diaz.

According to Dr. Diaz, since the fertility process is unpredictable, he wants to help his patients be prepared no matter what the outcome.
