Learning how to navigate the overwhelm, stress, and disappointment of infertility will prepare you for motherhood like nothing else can.
I know because I’ve been through it. When my husband and I started trying to conceive I was in my early 30’s, a senior executive at AT&T, and I thought I could accomplish anything. That perception was seriously challenged when I failed to accomplish the most primal role of being a female. It brought me to my knees and made me question myself, others, and Life. I was forced to stop and listen; and I’m so glad I did because it was the launch pad for the most amazing journey of my life; the one that brought me my children and eventually here.
After three long years of fertility struggles, I finally conceived my son via IVF. After realizing how little support there was for women like me, I felt truly called to work with other women struggling with infertility. So I went back to school. I received my Masters degree in Psychology and I went to Boston to get certified to teach the Harvard based mind body program taught by Alice Domar, Phd. It was an amazing few years as I prepared to do this work.
In 2005, I started teaching some mind/body infertility groups at UCLA and I began to develop relationships with the local Reproductive Endocrinologists. I attended and spoke at several Resolve symposiums, and ultimately I launched my first full service mind/body practice with massage therapy, acupuncture, and nutrition support. Still, I continued to work on myself.
I spent 5 years studying under some of world’s most prominent teachers of feminine wisdom and transformative learning. It turned out that my work with the empowered feminine augmented the traditional clinical program I had been teaching. As I incorporated these new principals and ideas into my mind/body program, something remarkable started to happen. Pregnancy rates went up. A lot. We were consistently seeing pregnancy rates >80%. The only word the doctor I was working with could come up was “remarkable”. But keep in mind, even though we have experienced pregnancy rates that high, that was not a controlled study and there are never any guarantees. I will say that I’ve never met anyone who really wanted to be a mother that didn’t become a mother, sometimes the journey just looks different than we thought.
I have been doing this work for more than a decade and nothing lights me up more than finding out that one of my patients is pregnant. Every sweet baby picture I receive brings a lump to my throat and a smile to my face. It never gets old.
I imagine these beautiful children coming into the world with the blessing of having a mom who struggled with infertility. A mom who has discovered her own inner wisdom and power. A mom who knows how to gracefully navigate the ups and downs that are inevitable in life. A mom who lives in deep gratitude for the gift of Life itself.
