    How To Look Beyond Your Fertility Diagnosis So You Can Improve Pregnancy Success

    How To Look Beyond Your Fertility Diagnosis So You Can Improve Pregnancy Success

    We’re digging into why these symptoms matter when you are TTC.
    Many times we get myopically focused on egg health and miss all the other symptoms that may be contributing to our fertility diagnosis.
    Our body wants to procreate, but right now, it may be under attack by seemingly healthy foods, gut infections, environmental toxins and more.
    We can research and figure out what worked for someone else or take a targeted approach and determine what is right for our bodies.
    With a targeted approach, you can get pregnant naturally or increase your chances of pregnancy success with your eggs.
    This episode is for you:
    1. You know there is a reason why it’s not working, but no one has run the tests to figure out why (hint, it’s not about focusing on egg quality)
    2. You want to get pregnant naturally, but you were told that IVF is your only option, and it has you second-guessing your decision
    3. You are moving to IVF in the next 3-6 months and want to improve your chances of it working.
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    1) The top symptoms and themes we see with low AMH, high FSH, premature ovarian insufficiency and diminished ovarian reserve so that you can improve pregnancy success
    2) Why IVF may not be your next best step and how to know when it is right for you
    3) How to optimize your chances of a successful IVF after failed, cancelled or being told you are a “poor responder”

    How This Method Can Help Better Predict Your Fertile Window

    How This Method Can Help Better Predict Your Fertile Window

    We’re digging into the fertility awareness method and how this can help us more accurately track our fertile days.
    Many women we work with have irregular cycles, absent cycles, absent cervical mucus, anovulation, excessive or light bleeding with periods, irregular basal body temperature and more.
    This can be very frustrating because our menstrual cycle gives us vital clues that tell us a lot about our fertility. And if you’re relying on ovulation predictor kits, you may be missing essential information that can help optimize your preconception health.
    The good news is that our clients see dramatic positive changes in their cycle when they implement targeted diet and lifestyle changes outlined in our Fab Fertile Method.
    In sexual health class, they certainly never taught us to check our cervical mucus or what our basal body temperature can mean for our health.
    Let’s learn how to track our cycle to optimize our chances of pregnancy success.
    Luna Hart is an integral part of our Fab Fertile Couples Coaching program which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility, your body is desperately trying to tell you something. Focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic, it will help you get pregnant with your eggs.
    Luna is a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner and fertility awareness method educator.
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) The difference between peak and non-peak cervical mucus
    2) How to check for cervical mucus
    3) How to start tracking your basal body temperature
    4) How to accurately track your cycle using our favourite free app
    5) What to do if your period is absent or irregular
    6) Pros and cons of ovulation predictor kits

    The Benefits of Joy and the Impact on Pregnancy Success

    The Benefits of Joy and the Impact on Pregnancy Success

    We’re digging into how to be joyful now when you are TTC.
    Have you ever thought, “I’ll be happy when I have my baby”?
    Chasing happiness can make us feel stuck and take us out of the present moment.
    So many of us on the fertility journey have put joy on hold.
    We spend our time researching fertility, feeling stuck in comparison and triggered by baby announcements or figuring out how to avoid going to a baby shower.
    Setting boundaries is essential (no, you don’t need to attend every baby shower).
    However, thinking about a place where you are happy in the future helps you avoid the pain you may be experiencing. It’s a coping mechanism.
    But how is this serving you? What if you could release the control? What if you could experience both the good and the bad emotions? You can laugh and cry.
    What if you could choose joy now?

She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility, your body is desperately trying to tell you something. Focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you go to the fertility clinic, it will improve your chances of success.
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) Why many of us on the fertility journey have stopped experiencing joy
    2) Tips to bring joy into our lives so that we release impatience and cultivate inner peace
    3) Why bringing a playful attitude to our can help reduce stress and bring us back to the present moment

    Why The Connection Between Food and Mood Matters When You Are TTC

    Why The Connection Between Food and Mood Matters When You Are TTC

    We’re digging into the connection between food and mood and why this matters when you are TTC.
    We all know that we are what we eat.
    But do we really know how food impacts our mood?
    For years I was eating food that did not support my body or fertility.
    Before I figured out the food/mood connection, I thought I was irritable, cranky and anxious.
    As I began understanding exactly how what I place on my fork daily dramatically impacts my state of mind, I no longer feel like I’m on a rollercoaster of emotions.
    It’s not about perfection. I’m human, so I still get triggered. Working on my mindset is a daily practice. But now, I can identify that the cane sugar in my gluten-free treat made me feel anxious. That subtle yet powerful shift can mean everything.

She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility, your body is desperately trying to tell you something. Focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or, if you do need to go to the fertility clinic, it will improve your chances of success.
    In this episode:
    1) Why you may not eat enough protein, how it impacts your neurotransmitters and fertility and quick ideas to add protein to every meal.
    2) The final word on carbs. Which carbs are right for you?
    3) The impact of your gut on your mood and why this is important for fertility.
    4) The importance of breakfast (and which foods should you choose to stabilize your blood sugar?). Deregulated blood sugar is a theme that we see with low AMH/high FSH.
    5) How to know which fats to eat. Inflammatory fats can hide everywhere & healthy fats are crucial to building hormones.
    6) How to eat enough greens and consume foods from the rainbow. Why chocolate may relieve anxiety.

    Biggest Mistakes and How To Avoid Them When You Hire A Fertility Expert

    Biggest Mistakes and How To Avoid Them When You Hire A Fertility Expert

    We’re digging into the biggest mistakes we see in hiring a fertility practitioner.
    There’s a lot of information about what you need to do to improve your fertility.
    You may be making the changes by yourself or you may be ready to hire an expert to help you figure out how to fast-track your chances of pregnancy success.
    Whether you’ve had failed or cancelled cycles or been told donor eggs are your only option, there is hope for you to conceive and have your baby.
    If it has worked for someone else, it can work for you.
    But how do you know which practitioner is right for you? Do you need a therapist, coach, nutrition practitioner, functional medicine doctor, or do you simply need help visualizing a positive outcome?
    Before you select a fertility practitioner, I'm sharing my top tips to make sure you don't waste time or money on a practitioner that doesn’t meet your needs or who sets you back.
     
    In this episode you'll learn:
    1) How to know which tests your practitioner is running and ensure critical information is not missed. Is your partner included?
    2) What support is offered for implementing the treatment plan?
    3) Is the program customized for you or is it one-size-fits-all?
    4) What's their philosophy on taking a mind, body and spirit approach? Do they help you with mindset and intuition or is it only focused on addressing biochemical imbalances?
    5) Do they specialize in your diagnosis and know about themes?
    6) Do they offer support in between sessions to get your questions answered?

    How To Trust That You Can Get Pregnant and Have Your Baby

    How To Trust That You Can Get Pregnant and Have Your Baby

    We’re digging into energy and how to trust that you can get pregnant and have your baby.
    The fertility journey can feel like a roller coaster filled with uncertainty, comparison, anger, jealousy and grief.
    You can be swept up by overwhelming emotions that leave you feeling powerless and hopeless.
    Or you can meet your miracle part way.
    That is why our Fab Fertile Method includes the mind, body, and spirit approach.
    Because if you don’t truly believe it is possible you’ll be easily distracted and you may fall back into old patterns that no longer serve you.
    Are you seeing pregnant bellies everywhere and feeling triggered?
    Are you surrounded by pregnancy announcements that leave you feeling happy for them but sad for you?
    How can you begin to shift your experience?
    What if these are signs showing what is possible for you.
    What if you can let go of the plan of how you will have your baby, and instead shift to a deep knowing that the soul of your baby is here now?
    Today I’m welcoming back Nichole Causey to the podcast. Nichole is part of the Fab Fertile team and she is a reiki master who specializes in manifestation, self-love, confidence, trusting your intuition, and fulfilling desires.
     
    In this episode you'll learn:
    1) How the energy of the world right now is impacting your fertility journey.
    2) How to deepen communication with your partner so that you can lean on each other as you navigate this journey on your own terms.
    3) If someone else has what we want, it is being shown to use for a reason. How to shift our mindset from comparison or jealousy to knowing it can happen for us too.
    4) How to let go of the plan of how it will happen for you. Noticing if you are negatively hypnotizing yourself with thought patterns that no longer serve you.
    5) How to surrender to divine timing knowing everything will be in perfect order.

BFFBella ,

Lemonpeachy ,

Two episodes in

I’m currently struggling with secondary infertility and stumbled upon this podcast, as I manifest my next pregnancy & baby. Am now only two episodes in and already have learned SO much that I did not know before. Thank you for providing these resources.

ambar94** ,

It was okay

Most of the time at the beginning is wasted in promoting her other pages which is very annoying. I just wanted the podcast to start but she only kept saying “follow this, subscribe to that” and so on
