The Fertile Mind: fertility from the inside out
Beyond Affirmations

Beyond Affirmations

April 12, 2021

Do you use affirmations? I know they often used on this fertility journey. Many people use affirmations to get pregnant.

I've shared before how I don't think they are helpful, they can even be unhelpful. In this episode me share why and what you can do to go beyond affirmations to help you get pregnant and create the family you want.

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 does 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.

How To Visualise

How To Visualise

March 22, 2021

I am a huge fan of visualisation. I’ve seen many many times how visualisation can make a dramatic difference to fertility.  However, I think many people miss the golden rule of visualisation that can make the difference between success and failure.

In this episode I give you the lowdown on visualisation for you fertility. From why it’s worth doing, how to do it and when to do it!

Here’s the beautiful video I mention that may inspire you visualisation:

Project You v Project Baby Revisited

Project You v Project Baby Revisited

March 15, 2021

For me our 10 year fertility journey taught me so much about myself and life I am grateful for. In fact, it was the personal journey I did that changed everything. My outlook on myself and life and my fertility. This is why I often talk about Project You v Project Baby. More you focus on Project You, Project Baby takes more care of itself.

In this episode we look at one aspect of Project You - Purpose. How is it possible to have a sense of purpose when you can’t have the one thing in life that you think will give you purpose? Let’s find out!

Get Unstuck!

Get Unstuck!

March 1, 2021

This fertility journey can prompt us to explore different aspects of our lives and leads us to wanting to make some changes. Sometimes this can be hard. 

 

Why is this? Why do we find it hard to break some old patterns?

How do we break old patterns of thought, perhaps negative thinking, that we know don’t serve us and just keep us stuck?

The more we bring flow back to life, the flow comes to our body and our fertility. So let’s find out!

Ease vs Worry

Ease vs Worry

February 22, 2021

On our fertility journey I began to think I was born a worrier. I thought it must be my ‘personality type’ or in my DNA. Most of my clients see themselves as an over-thinker, worrier or control freak.

The constant tension in our bodies caused by worry or over-thinking is not good for our fertility or IVF outcome.

So how do you shift from a state of worry to one of easy and wellbeing on your fertility journey? Well let’s find out!

Five Things I Learnt On Our Fertility Journey

Five Things I Learnt On Our Fertility Journey

February 15, 2021

I wouldn’t wish a 10 year fertility journey on anyone but there is so much I am thankful for that I learnt in it.

Things I learnt about myself and life that has a lasting effect on how I experience all of life, as well as my fertility journey at the time.

I believe it was these lessons that moved Project Baby from being a need to a desire, taking the pressure of it which allowed by body to fall into it’s natural healthy balance.

It will be interesting to see which of the five resonate for you on your fertility journey.

Fed Up With Life

Fed Up With Life

February 8, 2021

Over the last few days I’ve been experiencing feelings and thoughts that I had on our fertility journey. The combination of being in constant pain that has kept me from sleeping, the pandemic putting life projects on hold and it been constantly raining for days has left me feeling fed up with life. I’ve been angry with life.

I am not saying my situation is anything like infertility, it’s just brought up a lot of thoughts and feelings about life that came up on our fertility journey.

The reminders I am getting now about myself and life are the very things that helped us on our fertility journey. So I thought I’d share them with you!
