Infertility trauma is absolutely real and something we don’t talk about enough. In today’s episode, I spoke with the incredible Naomi Woolfson of Embrace Fertility all about this exact topic.
Naomi and I have been friends for quite some time but one of the reasons I was so keen to get her onto the podcast was because as a trauma-trained infertility therapist, she is trained in a technique called EDMR – which we chatted about in depth.
Some of the things we spoke about were:
- What is trauma?
- How can we recognise it?
- What are the repercussions of trauma?
- How can we heal from trauma?
- The work we can do ourselves
- The work we can do with a trauma-informed therapist.
- What are the next steps you can take to investigate this area further?
