Episode 67 - The Energy of Pregnancy
When you see a pregnant woman in the grocery store, do you feel: Separate. Jealous. Sad. Annoyed. Angry. Different?Most women I speak to are ashamed to admit that these feelings come up when they see a big, pregnant belly. When we live in the logical, left side of our brain – of course you will see yourself as separate from them. That’s what this side of the brain is designed to do. To create division. But what if there was a mind-body HACK that could give you access to that pregnancy energy? What if I told you, that the pregnant women is BORROWING pregnancy energy for 9-months. It’s not “hers” to own. It’s yours too. And you can access it today, after listening to this weeks podcast: How to access the energy of pregnancy. I did this exercise before conceiving my son. I stopped listening to the shitty story of pregnancy being out of reach for me. I took my power back and decided to get to know her. Not just when it physically manifested. I was fucking tired of waiting – and I know you are too – so listen now!
Episode 66: How to Heal Trauma with Sarah Baldwin
I was on a coaching call last week and my client who has had 2 losses said, “I didn’t even think I could define that experience as trauma.” She’s someone who thought that letting that word in, would keep that feeling of trauma there forever. When the exact opposite ended up coming true. She felt heard. Seen. And tears streamed from her face as we validated this traumatic experience for her. Trauma -- and trauma from the fertility journey… loss of a pregnancy, loss of time, loss of what we thought our lives would look like… is an experience that we can heal from. We can move through it. It doesn’t have to be our “forever story”. We simply need to learn how it works and to how to help it pass through our bodies energetically. Which is why I interviewed Sarah Baldwin – a somatic practitioner with a specialty in trauma in this weeks podcast. Our conversation will shed a completely new light on trauma and your nervous system. I loved every minute of it and feel changed from everything she taught me. I asked her questions like: What is trauma and what is unresolved trauma? How anxiety manifests as a result of trauma. Why your nervous system – and even your anxiety – is actually on your side. Practical, simple exercises to heal your trauma. YES… you can heal from it! Listen, no one in the world wants to consciously continue giving life to their trauma. But in order to let it go, we have to learn how it works and what it needs from us. Listen now!
Episode 65 - Ditch the “perfect” fertility diet with Deanna Wolfe
Imagine this…You go to bed at night…satisfied. No hunger. You wake up refreshed. You have NO guilt around what you ate the day before. No more gluten-shaming yourself. A “perfect diet” is no longer your target, and this makes you feel as though your body is enough and ready for pregnancy – despite eating foods on the “no-go-fertility” list. You feel open. You ARE open. In simpler terms, your worthiness is not determined by your diet. For real though – do you even know how much drama you (and all women) have around food and the mental story around what they put in their mouths? It’s not your fault though. Diet culture is a $71 BILLION industry. We’ve been conditioned to restrict, withhold and be as small as possible (physically, mentally and emotionally) since we were little girls. And without a doubt, the fertility journey will make this pressure stronger. So what’s the alternative to food shaming/food drama/food guilt? In this weeks podcast, I interviewed Deanna. Deanna is a dietician that specializes in ditching diets, cultivating gentle nutrition and learning intuitive eating. I asked her ALL the questions like: How to let go of guilt around food. What exactly is intuitive eating? How to aim for body neutrality over body positivity. Why you don’t have to eat perfectly to be healthy. If you want to learn how to change your relationship with food – even after decades of conditioning – this podcast will teach you what’s possible. Because your worthiness is not dependent on your diet. It’s time to let that patriarchal shit go. Listen now!
Episode 64 - Coaching Call: How do you know if you’re surrendering?
Today’s podcast is about a hot topic. We’re chatting about surrender. This is another coaching call question about what is surrender really? How do you know when you’re doing it? How do I know if I’m complicating it more than I need to? When you’re on the journey alone - without support - you sometimes feel like you’re doing things blindly. Like okay, I’ll try this, but how do I know if it’s working or if I’m doing it? This is exactly why it’s so important to have a community and a coach or guide on your fertility journey… because you may be making HUGE progress in your life — but you don’t even give yourself time to acknowledge yourself or celebrate. And in my opinion, if you’re not able to validate your progress and feeling better on your fertility journey and in your life — than what’s the fucking point? It’s like the progress didn’t even happen if you don’t see it for yourself. So I want you to notice that she was questioning herself. She didn’t know if what she was seeing and feeling was enough. So notice how I coach her through this hot topic of surrender. You’re also going to get a glimpse into surrender and what it means and what it feels like to her which I think will be really helpful for you. Listen now!
Episode 63 - Coaching Call: Are you a people-pleaser wanting to set boundaries?
We are featuring, yet another incredible client of mine and one of our coaching sessions during the Fertility Mind-Body Mastery Coaching Calls. I’m featuring this conversation because so many of the women who come to me are self-proclaimed people pleasers. People pleasing is serving everyone else but you — and wanting to be loved and needed by everyone. People pleasing weighs heavily on the mind and body. Boundaries a huge step to transforming and overcoming people pleasing so that you can care and nurture yourself for a beautiful, healthy, happy life — and of course, optimum fertility. This conversation was fun and engaging and I’m really wanting you to see how doing inner work on your fertility journey is not just sad and suffering. The joy and the excitement and laughter can start now. Of course, I’d love to coach you personally. And the only way for this to happen is to apply for my Fertility Mind-Body mastery program at www.spenserbrassard.com. So here it is: A wonderful conversation on people pleasing and setting boundaries.
Episode 62 - Coaching Call: Pregnancy After Loss
Today’s coaching topic is Pregnancy After Loss. This is such a tender topic and a tender life experience. I went through it and for me, it wasn’t easy. Pregnancy after loss can be anxiety inducing, which then leads you to have anxiety over having anxiety. It’s this loop of trying to control how you feel — which only makes things feel worse. On this coaching call, I very gently coached my amazing newly pregnant client after she experienced a loss last year. Our coaching conversation is slow in order to be very present for her experience. I coach her on deciding what she truly wants to believe during her pregnancy instead of what she’s “supposed to” or “should” believe. I want you to notice how I’m wanting to give her space to decide for her mind and body… what feels truest to her — and why that is most important. Listen now!
Love this podcast
TTC is a rollercoaster of a journey. Community, openness and conversation is not easy to come by. Appreciate all the knowledge and support!
I’m so grateful I stumbled on this podcast. I was in a dark place after 2 back to back miscarriages and Spenser’s positive words and attitude turned me right around. I took all of her advice and wound up pregnant the same month I started listening to the podcast. Every woman trying to conceive must listen to this podcast!!!
The most amazing podcasts I have ever listened to! I’ve listened to all of them, some of them multiple times. I feel like Spenser has become a close friend! 🤣 She has the most positive energy and she inspires me to be the best me and to love my body and my life just the way it is! Thank you!
