Everyone at Duke was fantastic – I will actually miss driving from Charlotte to come here! The study was truly life-changing for me. My perspective on things has shifted so much.

  • Fertility Yoga Study

    Study dates: Summer/Fall 2019

    (Internally funded) Infertility is known to be inversely linked with quality of life. Stress levels in fertility patients are known to be high, and infertility-related stress has been linked with poorer treatment outcomes. In collaboration with the Duke Fertility Clinic, the DCIHR team will be conducting a study to evaluate the effect of a 6-week mindful yoga intervention on quality of life for fertility patients. Eligible participants will be current patients of the Duke Fertility Clinic with any infertility-related diagnosis.
