So how do you start the process of being kind to yourself as you ttc? The answer in [...]

TTC: How often have you tried to numb the hurt that you’re feeling?

TTC: How many times have you looked at your partner or loved one and thought how much you adore them and in the next moment visualised something terrible happening to them?

TTC: Soften. If you read my posts regularly you will know that I speak about this a lot. The reason is that this journey hardens us up. Where sorrow meets joy and darkness, light we need to bring this quality of softness towards us to balance out the harshness of our experience and find equanimity. But [...]

TTC: how do you react when someone asks you to see what you are going through as a gift? Online this is reinforced with quotes like: I am thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn't know my strength. Everything happens for a reason. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Anyone else over these clichés? [...]

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 laws or siblings don't know [...]

TTC tips: For me there is something deeply comforting about this quote. It speaks of growing up, of awareness, of becoming tired of the dramas that we create in our lives, and about finally saying enough is enough and walking away from them. Have a think about where you create drama to your life right now as you TTC. There [...]

TTC: When hard times come most of us believe that if we work at it we'll get there in the end. This is what gets us through. The hope that if we do the hard yards we'll get our just reward. In nearly every aspect of our lives this rings true. Hard work equals getting what [...]

TTC: How often have you said this to yourself? Too often for most of us. If you've been told you've only got a 2% chance of this working, how do you think that affects your fertility? Not very positively anyway. Remember what we say to ourselves we make happen, so if we tell ourselves we are too [...]
