Waiting to become a mom can be a very

stressful journey…

many women suffer from fertility issues and feel very isolated along the way due to the fact that it is a private and invisible journey. Unfortunately not many people can relate to the emotional pain, which makes the whole journey even harder.

Does any of these statements sound or feel familiar?

  • It has been devastating hearing pregnancy announcements wherever I go…
  • The day my period comes is horrible…
  • I feel punished, left out, forgotten, not as a full woman…
  • I feel exhausted going to my friend’s kids birthdays, baby showers etc…
  • I feel my husband does not want a baby as much as I do…
  • I don’t feel empathy in the doctors office doing IVF…I feel like a number…
  • We are planning to adopt…it scares me…there are so many myths about it…
  • We had a donor egg. The child has my husband’s genes but not mine…it hurts me…
  • We had a surrogate and sometimes it still makes me sad I couldn’t carry the baby…
  • I had a miscarriage…all I hear is: “It happens to so many women”…but it still hurts

No doubt being on a fertility journey is turmoil of unknown painful feelings – Feelings that I want to help you process in order to heal. If we only tuck hurt feelings away they can damage our relationships and health over time.

I have been on a fertility journey for 7 years. I know the pain. I know the frustration. I know how not to get destroyed by it.

With my blog I want to support you on your journey. I am also here for you to talk. I am an IFS practitioner (Fertility Coach). I can help you deal with your painful emotions in order to gain your own balance and strength back.

Inner balance not only is a great condition to become pregnant; it is also beneficial for being a mom, which will cause inevitably new stressful feelings. Learning to deal with feelings of any kind is a gift for a lifetime.

Tell me your story and/or follow my blog. You are not alone. I am here for you.

Love Birgit
