TTC: What words do you use to describe what you're going through as you ttc? The phrases that we use are so powerful. They can assist and uplift us, or take us off to dark places - I've been to both and I know which one I'd choose. I was reading a woman on my Insta [...]

TTC: Longing. Such a powerful word with many different connotations for those of us on a ttc journey. But so often we don't talk about our longings. They're frankly too painful. We don't talk about the longing we have for our child to come to us. A longing to reclaim ourselves once more. A longing for [...]

TTC: How good are you at asking for help? Most of us find this hard, but interestingly if we're asked for help, most of us couldn't be there soon enough to support our loved ones. Until I went through my own ttc journey I just don't think that I ever really asked for help. It felt [...]

TTC: If you blame yourself for your fertility issues, (and sadly many of us do, for waiting too long, partying too hard, not sorting out fertility issues sooner…) then being self compassionate is not a natural first step. 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? When painful or difficult emotions arise as we try and conceive most of us don’t stay with that feeling and question what is going on, we just want to get as far away from it as possible. We look for bandaid solutions to bring [...]

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? Or how often has your cycle been going well and you ovulate on time and you're so happy, but in the next second you think [...]

TTC: When you think of your own fertility journey what story do you tell yourself? Our stories shape and define how we feel about what we are going through and importantly whether we stay stuck in a particular negative 'loop' or we are able to move on. We tend to reinforce certain interpretations of our experiences [...]

TTC: This journey can challenge even the tightest of relationships. Women and men tend to think and feel about fertility issues in a very different way. Men are seemingly more rational and become more scientific about the way ahead particularly when they are speaking to doctors or specialists. Women are more emotional and more tender but [...]

Embracing the glorious mess that you are while trying to conceive

Today I am writing about embracing the glorious mess that you are while trying to conceive. When I make a mess of it, when I react badly, when I've said something I didn't mean. I try to be compassionate towards myself because this is what it is to be human. In the wonderful book Oneness by Rasha he writes: love yourself not despite your [...]

TTC: Sometimes when you think you’ve been buried, you’ve been planted

TTC: Sometimes you learn the most about who you are from the hardest of circumstances. You grow a lot more from what's going wrong in your life than what's going right. Annoying but true. You understand the real meaning of being brave in the face of adversity. When what you are going through is truly frightening and [...]
