Portugal’s Coimbra University develops pioneering programme for infertility

It’s billed as a pioneering programme for infertility, but once you read beyond the first sentence, you might not be so sure. Scientists at Coimbra University have come up with a form of mental training based on “Mindfulness” which sets out to make women who can’t have babies feel better about themselves. At the end of 10 weekly sessions, infertile women will be less anxious and depressed, say investigators – but there are no promises about babies.
