September 9, 2021

When we think of surrendering it can sound like giving up, but the reality is that the act of surrender can keep us more focused on our goals. In this episode, we talk about what it really means to surrender to your fertility journey, the benefits of making this shift, and how we can use EFT to bring us to a place of natural, supportive surrender.

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • The perceived meaning of surrender compared to what it really is.
  • Why fertility issues can lead to more control and less surrender.

EP 038: From fertility patient to fertility coach!  Julia Midwinter and Karen Deulofeu

EP 038: From fertility patient to fertility coach! Julia Midwinter and Karen Deulofeu

September 2, 2021

In this very special episode I invited Julia Midwinter and Karen Deulofeu to join me and share their fertility stories. Both Karen and Julia had fertility treatment to bring their babies to them, during which I had the honour of supporting them both with EFT and mindset work. Their positive experiences of emotional support on their fertility journeys led to them both making big changes in their life and training as fertility coaches. There are so many similarities in their stories, but this podcast was the first time they had met! I know you’re going to love meeting these two inspiring women.

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • Hear Julia and Karen’s fertility stories, which for both of them began before trying for a baby.
  • How they used mindset work before their successful IVF cycles and what this changed for them.
  • Why they felt drawn to support others on a fertility journey and why fertility coaching and emotional support needs to be included in every fertility plan.
  • Your invitation to join my free challenge, 5 Days to Fertility Calm. Follow this link to join me! https://www.fertilemindset.com/5days/
EP 037:  Is a stress-free fertility journey possible?

EP 037: Is a stress-free fertility journey possible?

August 26, 2021

When I talk about the idea of a stress-free fertility journey there are a range of reactions from disbelief to hope or excitement about the possibility. How would it feel to eliminate or dramatically reduce stress from a fertility journey? The goal of being “stress-free” is the reason the Fertile Mindset Podcast exists and is the destination of all the support I offer at Fertile Mindset. Are you intrigued about what this could mean for you..? Then do listen to this podcast!

 

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • What stress actually is and how this knowledge can be our first big step towards being stress-free.
  • My tried and tested approach to supporting the whole emotional side of fertility.
  • The C.A.L.M. framework to emotional support and healing, with stories from my clients about how this worked for them.
  • An early opportunity for free support in working towards being “stress-free” with a clickable link right here
EP 036: Finding joy when TTC

EP 036: Finding joy when TTC

August 19, 2021

When we think of taking care of our mindset and emotional wellbeing on a fertility journey, we often think of reducing stress and releasing negative emotions. But there is one emotion that probably was present when you first started to try for your baby, and when you focus on reconnecting with it can make the biggest positive difference to your experience of your fertility journey and life as a whole. This emotion is JOY!

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • What joy is and the part it plays when trying to conceive.
  • Why it’s important to connect with joy and to do this right away.
  • 20 easy ways to bring joy into your life every day.
  • How to use EFT to allow joy in and make it a part of your fertility journey.
EP 035: Will I be a good parent?

EP 035: Will I be a good parent?

August 12, 2021

There’s a worry that isn’t often talked about but is present for many people I speak to who are on a long fertility journey. It’s that nagging feeling or question: ‘Will I be a good parent?’. The extra time that it takes us to conceive our babies and finally become parents gives time and space for this worry to flourish and take hold. Of course it’s natural to want to be a good parent, but this episode talks about why and how this question can create obstacles on your path to parenthood, and how to feel confident that you WILL be a good parent!

 

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • Why this question comes up when we’re trying for a baby, and how it’s more likely to be present on a longer fertility journey.
  • How this worry can become a real emotional block to conceiving.
  • The ways our own experiences of being parented (the bad AND the good!) can make us question our own ability.
  • The beliefs about my own ability to parent that I needed to resolve before I became a mother, and how you can do this too using EFT.
EP 034: The non-diagnosis of “unexplained infertility”

EP 034: The non-diagnosis of “unexplained infertility”

August 5, 2021

When you’ve been trying for a baby for a while and you go to see a doctor for tests and investigations to find out why, the hope is that a reason will be found and a solution given. But this isn’t the outcome for up to 30% of people, who are told that there is no apparent reason for their fertility struggles. They are given the non-diagnosis of “unexplained infertility”. Our reaction to this news and our next steps are so important, and I hope this podcast gives you the support and direction you need.

 

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • What unexplained infertility is and how it’s such a common outcome of fertility tests.
  • The two emotional reactions you may have on being told you have unexplained infertility (and how you may experience both of them).
  • The next steps to take after this non-diagnosis
  • How to turn confusion and frustration into clarity and action by harnessing the power of your fertile mindset.

EP 033: A mindset shift around fertility treatment

When approaching fertility treatment such as IVF for the first time we don’t always realise the big part our mind plays. Our thoughts, emotions and beliefs can have a powerful impact, and in this episode we will explore what that impact can be and how you can harness your mind to support you through any fertility treatment. Don’t have IVF without listening to this episode first!

 

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • Why you need to focus on your mindset when facing IVF or other fertility treatment.
  • The shocking statistic about how stress decides whether we are able to continue with treatment.
  • The two different ways your mind can influence your approach to IVF
  • How to get to know and master your mindset so it supports you at every step.

Here’s what is included in this episode:

  • Helen’s journey through TTC and fertility treatment and what she learnt about emotional challenges and needs at this time.
  • The importance of “living well” both physically and mentally when we experience overwhelm and anxiety.
  • Simple and easy practical tips to take away and incorporate into your life.
