Have you ever thought that because you’ve been through infertility, you can handle anything? Ya, me too. And many of my clients and followers.
The honest truth is that I can, and I did. And so did they. But infertility can still hit you like a slap in the face, and infertility doesn’t guarantee that you’ll coast through motherhood. In fact, motherhood hit me like a slap in the face and was really, truly, hard in many moments.
I consistently think thank goodness I worked on strategies and rituals to calm my nervous system and generally help me cope with hard sh*t… instead of trying to muddle and power through TTC waiting and willing myself to get pregnant, because I don’t think I’d have coped half as well with some of the pregnancy, birth and motherhood hiccups and hard times I’ve dealt with.
This episode is a MUST listen for anyone who is on the TTC rollercoaster, but also especially for my fertility warriors who have now found themselves expecting or on the other side with a baby that has come earthside.
