So often, we make up stories for ourselves because we all hate to fail and hate to be disappointed. But the stories trap us and prevents us from taking action.
In today's episode (a shorter one than usual,) I talk about the one question you should be asking yourself when you feel defeated and unmotivated, and finding yourself derailed. This question is something that people don't think about but it's exactly this questions that's going to set you up for success when times get tough.
Many women are devastated with the diagnosis of high FSH and/or Low ovarian reserve. They panic and assume that means they're out of eggs. That's not true.
In this episode, I talk about what this diagnosis means from a Western medicine perspective. The I give you three tips on how to improve your chances of getting pregnant and maximize each cycle.
Every Friday in our private Facebook community How to Get Healthy and Get Pregnant, I host a live Q&A session. It's my favorite event and I look forward to it all week.
I love how I get to help answer burning questions about fertility and point people in the right direction when they're stuck. The discussions we have in the group are really, really good. So I thought, I should share some of them with you so that you can at least get some of the valuable information and tips that are shared.
So for today's episode, I've hand-picked five of my favorite questions from the two months of Facebook Live sessions. For those of you who are already part of the community, this maybe a refresher for you, or this maybe new information for you if you didn't get a chance to catch me Live.
I hope you enjoy the show!
Endometriosis is one of the hardest conditions to diagnose because 40-50% of women don't have any symptoms. It's only after years and years of trying with no success that a doctor would suspect endometriosis.
If you've been diagnosed with endometriosis, sometime it can be a relief to know why you've been struggling but it can also make you feel a bit hopeless because the options seem limited.
In this episode, I give you a bit of technical background on endometriosis and why it affects your chances of becoming pregnant. And as always I give you actionable tips to help you get started.
I talk about diet considerations for this condition, a castor oil pack, and also a super useful supplement that you should be taking.

Thanks for tuning in! Have a great week.
I've been working hard on Practically Fertile, my online fertility-boosting program. I have an entire module dedicated to emotional well-being in what I call the Happiness Formula. I give you techniques on how to overcome some challenges such as self-sabotaging and repeated negative behavior patterns as part of the formula. I’m not a psychotherapist so my techniques are based on taking action to reprogram and reframe your way of thinking.
But, I’ve been noticing that over and over again in my practice and the private facebook group, that many people are struggling with things such as, how to say no to a baby shower, how to handle pregnancy announcements, how to create you own support system, how to deal with people who tell you “relax and it’ll happen,” How to deal with negativity from others without spiraling into a depression with them, and how to deal with all the emotions that come after a miscarriage.
And I thought these are real struggles people have, many people get into a funk or a downward spiral and either cant get themselves out of it, or don’t know how. There are some real and raw emotions that come with infertility and it’s hard to sort through them all. So the reprogram and reframe techniques might not work because sometimes you need to deal with the emotions that come up
I knew I needed some extra help. So I thought as an added bonus, I would interview my good friend, and fertility counselor Johanna Hyland, LCSW to add an extra layer, to give another perspective and actionable tips to help people overcome these emotional challenges.
Johanna is an expert in the field of fertility counseling and she has received extra training to incorporate mindfulness techniques into her practice.
We had an amazing interview and it was one of the best I’ve ever done. And after the recording, I just thought the information was too good not to share with my listeners. We really dug in deep and she gave such valuable tips. So I thought I would take a portion of my interview with her and share it on the podcast. I’m not going to share the entire interview because I want to be fair to my future paying clients but I think you’re still going to get so much value and insights from what I’ve shared.
