Get Pregnant Naturally


Jun 28, 2021

Erin Oberlander joins us today as we’re digging into how to reduce stress with holistic lifestyle hacks.

What I’ve found working with couples on the fertility journey is that oftentimes joy is put on hold.

We can only be happy when we’re pregnant and when our baby arrives. Until then happiness and joy evade us.

I can relate to the feeling of wanting to have my child so badly, that nothing else mattered.

I remember feeling so singularly focused and driven to get pregnant that I didn’t pay attention to all the good that was already around me.

But that only made me feel frustrated, restless, and discontented.

Now the more I slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures I can access joy and peace more easily.

So how do we bring joy back into life now so we can reduce the stress, overwhelm and establish a fertile mindset as we prepare to welcome our child?

Today I’m welcoming Erin Oberlander. Erin is a Doctor of Musical Arts, a Certified Holistic Aromatherapist, Herbalist, sound practitioner, and modern homesteader.

In today's episode you'll learn:

1) Top hacks to move to a holistic lifestyle that is beneficial for fertility

2) The benefits of sound healing and how do we start the practice.

3) Essential oils to help with reducing anxiety and stress so we can move into the parasympathetic state as we prepare for pregnancy success

4) What we can learn about homesteading and how it can help us slow down during the fertility journey
