  • Hey, great video thank you! So I was hinted about this “alternative kind” of website I read in some comments. If infertility is your problem, you should at least skim through it, google Dobbie Nerkstrol’s website for a science backed way to get pregnant within 60 days.

  • Dr told me pre-menopause but I wanna baby my age is 39 +2 month now I take fermoston 2/10 because my MH level is 41 aur hormones imbalance, please how can I do conceive, please reply me?

  • Great! I was long-looking for just this, thank you! BUT has anyone here had the opportunity to read Dobbie Nerkstrol’s Infertility Cure? Well.. there’s this one specific plan she recommends getting pregnant within 60 days, and start feeling your body change within the first weeks, not for everybody! But to each their own.

  • One of the worst parts of adulthood is lack of sleep. When we tried to conceive it happened that I spent several sleepless nights in a row. But after months of struggle we finally had found solution. Happened that my hubby is huge baseball fan. So, once he saw advertisement of a Ukrainian baseball team whose sponsor was reproductive medical center. After quick online dialogue with manager and after viewing their site closer we decided to take a chance there. Our journey with that clinic (Biotexcom) was nothing but pleasure. We planned to spend whole our savings but in reality left there only half. As our whole all-inclusive package cost only 30k euros. We choose allinclusive package with ultimate attempts. One thing we noticed right away was that our doctor had an eye for detail. What is important for us, clinic also helped us to prepare all the necessary documents. What I like the most is a strict and simple contract. Without any traps and pitfalls. So now, my reason for lack of sleep is more pleasant and loved.

  • The best thing to quiet your mind and have amazing sleep is to take CBD Oil, works perfect for me and lots of my clients…I also take it everyday to reduce anxiety…

  • I am curious to know if having a retroverted uterus, means you need to sleep in a specific way once you are pregnant. I have found no evidence of this need on the internet, however, my doctor told me I needed to do this.

  • What a great video full of interesting information. Thank you for answering my question about how to calm the mind before sleep, I will try the worry journal and gratitude journal and see if that helps. Thank you!

  • Hi… i jus wana ask if some 1 have only 1 falopian tube howe the person get pregnant or there is also some fabroids out side the uetrous howe get pregnant? help me plz

  • Another great video Dana. Your program helped me with my 8 month old son who started waking up every 25 minutes at daytime naps. I remember doing research and research as to what and why this was happening. People even told me crazy things like he’s probably just not getting enough breast milk and had me doubting myself and my milk supply. Once I found Sleep Sense and realized that he just needed some independent sleep skills our lives changed! I think you have something amazing going on here. YouTube is such a strong platform and I think a lot of people come here searching for answers. I noticed you never really reply to comments on here though for moms or people who have questions relating to your videos. I find myself answering their questions for you since I’m so familiar with the program. I think it would be nice if you would start paying more attention to the comments on these videos you put out and actually responding to people who have questions/comments. Thank you for creating Sleep Sense.

  • Honking car locking wakes people up and Creates Noise Stress Everywhere. When you park next to our houses and apartments on the street we can hear it inside. Please Break the Honk Habit. The Auto Industry needs to find new and better technology to let people know their cars are locked and armed Without the Honk. Thank you.

  • As I always say if you dont enough sleep because of school just dont do anything during school, just doze off and shut off your brain just sleep all the time when ur parents take away ur phone. And act like you dont care about anything and sleep all the time. PERIODT��

  • When he talked about kids not getting enough sleep because school starts early made me laugh because my parents had a strict bedtime (8pm) rule in school nights (1st to 7th grade). But then I went to boarding school and I threw that idea out of the window �� I have no regrets but glad my parents cared for my need to rest��

  • I got Sexually Assaulted while I was sleeping and since I’m still living with that person, I’m sadly unable to get a good and peaceful sleep for almost 2 years now. I remember only getting like 3 hours of sleep, when I was still in Highschool ( I really don’t know how I managed to graduate, honestly). I was so mentally and physically exhausted that, I at one point took Suicide into consideration. To my bad, I was already suffering from depression before my Assault even took place, which made everything obviously even worse. 
    Now that I’m not in school anymore I get enough sleep but, it’s not peaceful and relaxing as it should be. I’m living in constant fear of getting Assaulted again. Good thing is, I’m moving out soon. I’m hoping that after moving out and living alone, I will finally get proper, relaxing and peaceful sleep. After 2 years of living in constant fear and paranoia, I really deserve it. 

    Long story short, don’t take sleep for granted.

  • “Sleep deprivation can make people more sensitive to pain”
    No wonder every time I wake up I feel like I’m in pain all over my body. Like if you pull the hair on my head it hurts way more than it usually would.

  • When I become sleep deprived, my left eye starts pointing inward and I start going cross-eyed. I have to blink repeatedly in order to re-center my vision sometimes.
