I’m Mel

Fertility coach, mentor and stress relief expert for women seeking holistic expertise to support their fertility journeys.

You might think that because I’m an expert, I’ve always been this way. In fact the opposite is true. I can write about it precisely because I sucked at it.  I battled. I struggled. My life was in turmoil. I knew I needed to learn how to soften, be receptive and find calm, but I didn’t know how

Over the past decade, during my own difficult fertility  journey and having worked with hundreds of other women, I’ve learnt how

In this blog I’m going to share with you the practical tools that I’ve learnt. 

If you’d like to work with me, please contact me

TTC: Forgive and forget… Is it possible?
TTC: Forgive and forget… Is it possible?

TTC: Is it really possible to forgive and forget? Forgiveness is hard, and it happens at a different pace for everyone. It takes space and time to process what you've gone through and that takes patience and commitment. I like to think about forgiveness in 3 ways:...

TTC: Letting go of people who aren’t supporting you
TTC: Letting go of people who aren’t supporting you

Do you have a good support system as you ttc? Some of you are lucky to have supportive friends, partners and family, but some do not. If you feel frustrated by the lack of support know that you are not alone. Sometimes those who are closest to you like parents, in...

TTC: How to let go of anger by being mindful
TTC: How to let go of anger by being mindful

TTC: Anger. Feeling angry. Having angry thoughts. Hating what you're going through and who you think you've become. If you're on a ttc journey it is very likely that you will have come up against anger. I have. For me it appeared after shock and before sadness and I...

TTC: Getting Grief Right

TTC: My top Yoga for Fertility stress relief pose

TTC: If you only have time to do one yoga pose in your day - try Viparita Karani (legs-up-the-wall pose). It's the queen of fertility yoga poses, and anyone can practice it (partner's too). The real power of this pose, and why for me it’s the ultimate letting-go pose,...

TTC: A simple breathing tool to release blame
TTC: A simple breathing tool to release blame

TTC: Blame is such a corrosive emotion. We all feel it yet we rarely talk about it. As a result it sits within us, heavy, tight and hot - and often we find it hard to shift. For many of us it is part and parcel of a ttc journey. If you blame yourself for your...

TTC: How to manage difficult mothers
TTC: How to manage difficult mothers

TTC: Let's talk about how to manage difficult mothers as you ttc*. Time and again I hear stories of anguish and heartache due to disappointing behaviour from the one person you need support from the most, your mother. Mother and daughter relationships can be fraught,...

TTC: What do you pay attention to? Moving from fear to freedom
TTC: What do you pay attention to? Moving from fear to freedom

TTC: Being aware of how you pay attention is a powerful practice. It can be a shock to realise how much your 'take' on situations can affect your reality. When we're having a hard time, we often start to identify with the struggle. For example: 'This situation isn't...
