I am taking some time off in August so this is a show from the archive: Like many aspects of the fertility journey, I think the depth of emotional distress often experienced with miscarriage is not really acknowledged by people who've not experienced it. There is grief. Grieving the loss of the baby you were so emotionally connected to from day one. There can be guilt and blame. Perhaps blaming yourself for not doing the right thing thinking that has impacted your fertility or ability to hold down a healthy pregnancy. Then there is the fear of it happening again. This is often the most significant. You move past the grief but the fear lingers on and doesn't seem to pass. In this episode we explore how you can let go of that fear and other emotions to continue your fertility journey with more peace and hope.

About the Show:
I help women and couples remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant. Based on my and my wife’s 10 year fertility journey and the work of my clients I believe too many couples have IVF unnecessarily and that the success rate of IVF is unnecessarily low. We can see how much our mind and emotions played a part in our fertility journey and when we found a place of peace without giving up that’s when the magic happened - we conceived naturally against all odds. I help me clients do the same - remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant naturally or getting the successful IVF outcome they so want.
When I ask women what having a baby will give them they usually say a sense of completeness, love and purpose. It’s our fear of not having these things, a fear of not being enough, worthy that tends to be behind our fear of not having a baby. These limiting beliefs have usually been around since an early age and infertility shines a spotlight on them. Many of my clients have strived for success in their life whether career or other things. That approach doesn’t work for fertility. In fact it puts tension in the body which decreases their chances of success.
The podcast is short dose of insight, giving women and couples new perspectives that allows them to see their fertility from the ‘inside-out’. To see help them let go of their insecure thoughts and feelings and connect to their innate wellbeing that knows they are enough and OK whatever happens. This moves having a baby from being a ’need’ to to a desire. It takes the pressure of the process and their mind and body relax into it’s natural flow state. Stress can impact the delicate balance of hormones required for a successful pregnancy.
