Sharon Corr played live music to developing embryos at Institut Marques

How cool is it that Sharon Corr played live music to developing embryos at Institut Marques!

Sharon Corr has said she feels “very honoured” to have performed for developing IVF embryos at a fertility clinic in Barcelona.

Sharon Corr embryos Alex UbagoSharon Corr played alongside Spanish personality, Alex Ubago, for hundreds of embryos growing in the clinic’s incubators.  The live performance was also streamed to embryos which were being fertilised inside incubators at Institut Marques clinic in Clane, Co Kildare and Villa Salaria in Rome.

Speaking about the performance the singer said: “It’s great to think that we could possibly be a part of the future and we could make a change, It’s just beautiful to make music.

“I’m so amazed at the whole process and how it works and yet I’m not surprised that music really helps the embryos to form because music is the greatest therapy in the world”

Institute Marques plays music for embryos

Institut Marques ClaneInstitut Marques states they have proven through research that musical vibrations increase the fertilisation rate by 5%  and so all incubators in the Clane IVF clinic, where embryos develop, have a built-in music system.  The incubators, within Institut Marques fertility centre, are exposed to micro musical vibrations 24 hours a day, from three musical styles, pop, heavy metal and classical.

Another study will analyse whether music can also improve the rate of embryo implantation. So far, it has shown that using Babypod just after embryo transfer and during the days until the pregnancy test, patients have found it has reduced their anxiety levels.

Institute Marques also discovered, in a scientific study, carried out in more than 1,000 patients, that foetuses can hear from week 16 as long as the sound reaches them through the mother´s vagina. This is achieved by using a ‘Babypod’, a vaginal device that helps to communicate with the foetus.

Institut Marqués is continuing to research the benefits of music, comparing the reactions of foetuses to different types of music, and to the voice of the mother or other relatives.

Mindful IVF : Mindfulness APP for IVF

Last updated: May 30th, 2019 at 11:21 am

Mindful IVF APP Review

Author Linda Ryan, BA, Lic TCM, CH

Mindful IVF is a new brilliant mindfulness APP to support women going through IVF.  And my patients have been raving about it! I have seen huge improvements in their calmness and stress levels, which can make all the difference to your IVF success.  If you are going through IVF, I highly recommend you check out the new Mindful IVF APP, there is nothing else out there like it.  The Mindful IVF meditations take just ten minutes a day and aim to keep you calm and reduce stress during your IVF cycle. It is free to download the APP and most of the valuable mindfulness meditations are free as well.  Mindful IVF takes you through down regulation, stimulation, egg collection, etc.  If you want the pre and post embryo transfer tracks and the 2 week wait track you have to pay for the upgrade. The upgrade for the embryo transfer and 2ww mindfulness meditations is only $1.99 (that price is a bargain for calmness!)

The Mindful IVF APP  supports and takes you through each stage of your IVF cycle.  Pick and choose whichever tracks suit your specific IVF situation:

  • it helps you through the down regulation phase
  • it supports you through the stimulation phase
  • there is mindfulness for egg collection
  • there are tracks for pre and post embryo transfer (for both fresh & frozen embryo transfers, also for donor egg embryo transfers)
  • it supports you through the dreaded 2 week wait
  • it even caters for those having a frozen embryo transfer
  • it also has specific meditations for egg donation cycles
  • it has a “nighttime mode”-this is where the screen goes dark if you want to use it before going to sleep.

update 16 Feb 2019: I have just found out that there are brand new updates and improvements to the MindfulIvf app!   Stay tuned!

The Mindful IVF website highlights:

Mindful IVF “Prep 10”:

This is a 10 day Mindfulness preparation program for your next IVF. Relaxing mind & body using scientifically proven techniques (this is free with the APP).

Mindful IVF “IVF START”:

This has 10 Amazing Mindful pieces to help you through each stage of your IVF cycle. Designed by experts and spoken from the heart (this is also free with the APP).

Mindful IVF “MINDFUL PRE & POST”:

This is described as a Masterpiece of Calmness and Zen Meditation for just before and after your IVF embryo transfer. You will float home with your beautiful embryos on board. (This costs 1.99 for the upgrade).

Mindful IVF “2 WEEK WAIT”:

These two weeks can feel like the most important 2 weeks of your life. In an effort to make them the best 2 weeks of your life, everyday you can use a unique meditation piece created for each unique day of the 2 week wait (This costs 1.99 for the upgrade).

Available to download on IOS and Android.

Institut Marquès Clane: Medical Staff Update

Last updated: November 12th, 2018 at 02:23 pm

Institut Marques, Clane Medical Staff Update

Medical Staffing Update at Institut Marquès Clane, Co. Kildare

Since the change of ownership and re-branding from Clane Fertility Clinic to Institut Marquès there has been an interest in whether the core Consultant medical staff are staying on at Institut Marquès.

Yesterday I met with key staff and leadership of Institut Marquès in Clane and was reassured that Consultant staffing would be consistent as before and after the change of ownership. Details relating to the continuing staffing are available if you click here.

So feel free to spread the word on facebook & in the fertility forums so that any concerns are eased.

The Changeover

Recently you may have noticed some other changes with the transition to Institut Marquès.

Change is the only constant in life”  – Heraclitus

You may be noticing some changes at Institut Marquès in Clane.  There is a brand new website as well as updating the clinic premises, and I must say some very cool technology like their Embryomobile. observa-embriones-desde-el-movil This actually allows you to watch, on your smartphone, your embryos in the incubator through an embryoscope during the days between egg collection and embryo transfer.  Over the years I think I have probably heard every one of my IVF acupuncture patients say “I’m dying to know if my embryos are still growing”.  A survey carried out by Institut Marquès and presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction Congress (ESHRE) revealed that, for most patients, the experience of using the Embryomobile is “moving”, “amazing” and also “reduces anxiety”. Patients get more directly involved during the treatment and this reduces their stress levels.

Reducing stress levels is key in my Fertility Acupuncture Clinic.  You all know that I focus a lot on helping you to reduce stress (especially during the 2 week wait) and I think that the Embryomobile can be a useful tool to help reduce the stress during the uncertain time between egg collection and embryo transfer. You can learn more about the Institut Marquès Embryomobile by clicking here. If you would like to see a video of a developing embryo through the embryoscope then click here it’s pretty amazing to see new life forming.

IVF and Acupuncture Doubles Success Rates in Study

IVF and Acupuncture Success Rates :Clinical Studies

In clinical trials, the use of  IVF and Acupuncture combined has been shown to not only contribute to reducing your stress levels & improving how you feel during your IVF cycle, but the combination contributes to & increases your chances of success.

A 2016 Clinical Study conducted by Homerton University Hospital in London found that receiving IVF and Acupuncture combined during IVF doubles the success of IVF (see reference below).

These IVF and Acupuncture success rates findings were presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction & Embryology at their 32 Annual Meeting which was held in Helsinki this July 2016.

IVF & Acupuncture hail from very different origins & their treatments work in incomparable ways.  They may, at initial glance, appear to be unlikely partners, but this is actually the beauty of combining the two modalities. IVF & Acupuncture form a Complete Mind & Body experience that adds a new dimension that helps to maximise potential.

Imagine you can maximise your potentialIVF and Acupuncture with the perfect balance of Modern IVF Technology & Ancient Healing Wisdom with Fertility Acupuncture that doesn’t hurt and that is tailored to your specific fertility boosting needs. Here at MARA, we do just that.

Another recent 2015 retrospective cohort study by Hullender Rubin LE, Et al.( Reprod Biomed Online. 2015 Jun;30(6):602-12. doi) on the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine with IVF showed that “Overall, IVF with adjuvant WS-TCM was associated with greater odds of live birth in donor and non-donor cycles.  WS-TCM is Traditional Chinese Medicine.  TCM is “a complex intervention that can include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, dietary, lifestyle recommendations”. You can view the abstract here.

“I’m an OB-GYN, Here’s Why I Turned to Acupuncture When I Wanted To Get Pregnant.  I now recommend without hesitation that anyone going through infertility treatments consdier using acupuncture”,
