Jennifer Robertson joins us today as we're digging into lessons learned from the fertility journey.
If someone told me there were valuable life lessons I would learn from the fertility journey – when I was right in the middle of the struggle – I probably would have told them where to go.
And it may be easy to share these lessons when we’re on the other side of the journey but we share them because maybe you can see some of yourself in our story.
What I know for sure is this journey will force us to look at the hard stuff like impatience, our controlling nature, our need to plan it all out, the frustration when it doesn't go the way we imagined, and heartbreak month after month. Most women tell me one of the most painful parts of the TTC journey is the overwhelming feeling that we’re behind as everyone else moves forward with their lives.
We can let this journey consume us or we can begin to reframe it so we can visualize a positive outcome.
If you can see your patterns that are the first step towards changing the story (after all you are not the voice in your head).
So how do we move forward on our own terms so that we can feel empowered and hopeful as we prepare for pregnancy success?
Jennifer Robertson joins us today! Jennifer is a fertility coach and has helped women all over the world transform their mindset and take back control of their life in the midst of infertility.
