    Who has the energy?

    Who has the energy?

    Until you invest the time, energy and desire to put each other first, you won't have much of a relationship when the kids are older. Happy couples are the ones who enjoy their time together and playing creatively at life. They have a sense of having each others back, are affectionate and have a strong sense of who they are within themselves and the relationship.

     But what does it take to get you to this relationship nirvana? 

    In this interview I sit down Gabriela Rosa, a world-renowned fertility specialist, host of the  Fertility Challenge™ and the founder and clinical director of the Rosa  Institute—an organization dedicated to helping couples create healthy  babies, despite previous reproductive challenges. Gabriela has been featured in major media publications including The  Daily Telegraph, Woman's Day and New Idea. She is an inspiring and  motivating
    educator, as well as a popular podcast and radio commentator on the topics of natural health and fertility.

    Gabriela and I discuss the important factors that allow couples to successfully manage their energy during the postpartum period and beyond.
