    How To Successfully Navigate The Holiday Season While TTC

    How To Successfully Navigate The Holiday Season While TTC

    We’re digging into how to navigate the holiday season when we’re on the fertility journey.
    The holiday season can be filled with triggers and well-meaning (but clueless people) asking, “When will you start a family?” or “Are you pregnant yet?”
    How do we handle an invitation we don’t want to attend? Or what about the person that posts a steady stream of holiday pictures of their kids? Can we really unfollow them?
    As we may know, stress is a sneaky thing. Sometimes it sneaks up on us. And next thing you know, you’re breaking down at the holiday party or telling the cashier your whole fertility journey.
    So how do we navigate the season on our terms? With a plan that feels right for us.
    Plus, what if hidden stressors were contributing to your hormonal imbalance that, once rectified, could increase your chances of pregnancy success?
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) What to do about triggers, holiday party invitations, and feeling stuck in comparison. How to get honest about our stress so we can see a clear path forward to expanding our family.
    2) How to get out of flight or flight mode and move to rest and digest. Plus, how to know if you’re in burnout.
    3) Recognize your biochemical stressors (i.e. blood sugar, thyroid imbalance, food sensitivities, gut infections, etc.) that impact your neurotransmitters. When your hormones are out of balance, it can affect your mood, leading to anxiety/depression and less resilience. Strategies to help identify triggers so that you can begin to thrive.
    4) Pregnancy success stories to motivate you to know having a healthy baby is possible for you when you take a targeted approach.

    Would quitting your job help you to get pregnant faster?

    Would quitting your job help you to get pregnant faster?

    We’re digging into why quitting your job may be your next step when you are TTC.
    Working on your mental health and reducing stress is a common recommendation when trying to conceive.
    And sometimes this can be easier said than done. If you could reduce stress by yourself, you already would have done it.
    A main source of stress can be the job. Whether it’s the high pressure, demanding schedule, long work hours, or constantly feeling on call.
    Often we can stay in a job that we’ve outgrown because looking for a new job when we are TTC doesn’t make sense.
    So how can our job better serve us while preparing for our baby? And how do we know when to hand in our resignation?
    Samantha Coffin is part of my team at Fab Fertile. 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. Samm is a mindset and wellness coach.
    Samm is a wellness and mindset coach supporting people's transitions from a life full of surviving to THRIVING! Samm herself lives with celiac, Lyme, endometriosis, and PCOS.
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) Patterns we see with couples that are TTC concerning work/life balance
    2) How would a baby fit into your life right now? We discuss tips to have you consider where you need to pull back
    3) How to visualize your life with your baby and make the necessary changes BEFORE they arrive, letting the universe know you are ready

    Stop Making These Common Mistakes and Get Your 2023 Action Plan

    We’re digging into common mistakes we see on the fertility journey.
    As we come to the end of the year, I want you to have a plan for 2023 so that you can have your baby.
    I know you may have made many diet/lifestyle changes already. You may have experienced failed IVF cycles, been labeled a poor responder, or been told that donor eggs are your only option.
    I know firsthand how hard it can be when you receive a diagnosis of low AMH, high FSH, premature ovarian insufficiency, or diminished ovarian reserve.
    That’s why I developed the Fab Fertile Method. I don’t want you to struggle as I did.
    I want you to have a proven plan that sets up pregnancy success.
    So before you head to IVF or muddle through this by yourself, I want to share the eight (8) common mistakes we see when someone has low AMH/High FSH so that you don’t waste time or money.
    This episode is for you:
    You’ve tried everything, and nothing has worked
    You’re not sure what to do for 2023 to optimize your fertility
    You feel like IVF may be your next step, but you really want to get pregnant naturally
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) The top 8 mistakes we see with low AMH/high FSH so you can fast track your pregnancy success
    2) Why AMH is a poor predictor of pregnancy success and what you need to focus on instead
    3) Why this strategy to help your hormones is often prescribed, but what it misses
    4) Why going to IVF too early can set you back and how to know when it is time for IVF

    Could a sluggish liver be holding you back from getting pregnant?

    Could a sluggish liver be holding you back from getting pregnant?

    We’re digging into how to improve liver health and what you need to know when you are TTC.
    We’ve all heard of a liver cleanse or detox and how important it is to have an optimally functioning liver. Think of cayenne-infused lemon water, consuming apple juice with olive oil and Epsom salts. However, before you start preparing these concoctions, they may not be right for you.
    It’s more about supporting your liver rather than cleansing or detoxing it.
    If your liver is not functioning properly, it may be unable to remove estrogen from your body. This leads to estrogen reabsorption, which results in hormone imbalance.
    Some signs of a sluggish liver include fatigue, headaches, poor digestion, cravings, weight gain around the middle and more.
    So how do we get our liver in tip-top shape to balance hormones and get pregnant naturally?
    Katy Bradbury is a registered nurse and nutritional therapist and part of my team at Fab Fertile. 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, you'll learn:
    1) Why a healthy liver is important when you are TTC
    2) Which genetic variants are tied to the liver (and how to support those gene variants so you can optimize liver function)
    3) Symptoms of poor liver function and specific blood markers to review to ensure they are in the optimal range
    4) Diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations for a healthy liver

    How to Address Hyperthyroidism or Graves' to Improve Pregnancy Outcomes with Dr. Eric Osansky

    How to Address Hyperthyroidism or Graves' to Improve Pregnancy Outcomes with Dr. Eric Osansky

    We’re digging into the hyperactive thyroid and Graves’ disease and what this means when TTC.
    One of the main themes we see with low AMH and or high FSH is thyroid dysfunction.
    You may have been told your TSH is normal, but no one has run a full thyroid panel.
    Or you are currently taking thyroid medication, but you had no idea there were targeted lifestyle changes you need to make alongside the medication to improve its efficacy.
    An optimal thyroid is essential for a successful pregnancy.
    And both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can impact ovulation.
    We commonly see Hashimoto’s with low AMH/high FSH and now we are seeing Graves’ too.
    Before you are dismissed and told that everything is normal, don’t take no for an answer.
    Medical gaslighting is real and we see this ALL the time with thyroid health.
    Let’s learn more about hyperthyroidism and Graves’ and their impact on fertility.
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) Why it is important to balance the thyroid when you are TTC
    2) The difference between hyperthyroid and hypothyroid and how they impact fertility - What is Graves disease?
    3) Role of reverse T3 and why you don’t want this marker to be too high
    4) Adrenal function and the link between stress and thyroid health
    5) The link between mineral imbalance and thyroid health (i.e. iron, zinc, copper)
    6) Diet and lifestyle recommendations to improve thyroid function

    Fab Fertile Method https://www.fabfertile.com/what-we-do/
     
    Before working with us, most couples have been through failed IVF cycles, been labeled a poor responder, and told they had better rush to another IVF or that donor eggs are their only hope.
    I don’t want you to waste money on IVF without looking at the missed healing opportunities as to WHY it’s not working in the first place.
    We’ve helped couples get pregnant naturally or improve pregnancy success when they’ve been told donor eggs are their only option. We’ve helped women get pregnant naturally with AMH as low as 0.04 and FSH in the 100s.
    Learn how our proven Fab Fertile Method can help improve pregnancy success for YOU.
    I’m excited to invite you to a special masterclass - where you’ll learn How To Improve Your Chances Of Pregnancy Success If You Have Low AMH/High FSH.

    How This Easy At-Home Test Can Improve Pregnancy Success with Khaled Kteily

    How This Easy At-Home Test Can Improve Pregnancy Success with Khaled Kteily

    We’re digging into at-home semen testing and why this can help when TTC.
    Although we specialize in complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, and premature ovarian insufficiency, more couples are coming to us with both female and male factor infertility.
    The Fab Fertile Method is effective at addressing both male and female fertility conditions.
    Even if the male partner tells us his semen analysis is fine, we always include a blood chemistry review and a review of his semen analysis using functional reference ranges (these are or optimal levels – so it flags it earlier before it goes to disease) to ensure no healing opportunities have been missed.
    So many women are making all the diet and lifestyle changes and the male partner may be supportive and willing to change – but he may not know what can be done to optimize his fertility.
    That is why we coach couples. It’s not only about getting the female healthy for pregnancy – the male partner must be included to increase the chances of getting pregnant naturally.
    But let's face it: what male relishes the process of getting a semen analysis?
    Imagine if there was a way he could avoid the uncomfortable and often expensive experience of leaving a sample at the doctor's office or fertility clinic and reliably test his fertility without leaving your home.
     
    In this episode, you'll learn:
    1) Differences between an in-office semen analysis and an at-home test kit
    2) The markers that could be missed in the doctor’s kit and what matters when you are TTC
    3) Diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to improve semen quality

BFFBella ,

What a phenomenal resource!

Thank you for such an amazing resource for women struggling to get pregnant!

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
