    Preparing for Pregnancy: 7 things I want you to know BEFORE you get pregnant

    Preparing for Pregnancy: 7 things I want you to know BEFORE you get pregnant

    Today's episode is about preparing for pregnancy and was inspired by a former client whose baby I had the chance of cuddling. We caught up over coffee and chatted about the things we *wished* we had known BEFORE we got pregnant. So, whether you're listening to this now and you're still on the TTC rollercoaster, or whether you've just found out that you're expecting, I feel like there's going to be some useful information here for you to dive into.

    Dive into this episode as I share:

    •Pregnancy expectation vs reality
    •The honest truth about what pregnancy after infertility is like
    •Why sometimes we need to be flexible during our pregnancy
    •The number ONE thing I think we need to do BEFORE falling pregnant

    How to choose Fertility Supplements wisely (don't make these mistakes)

    I'm baffled that I've not discussed Fertility Supplements on the podcast before and specifically, what to look for in a fertility supplement (and some of the common mistakes I see people make with supplements that could be doing more harm than good), what is the best fertility supplement to get pregnant, and the supplements I personally used to take.

    In this episode all about fertility supplements, we talk about

    •What to look for in a supplement
    •Why the type of folate matters
    •What I used to take
    •How you could be doing more harm than good with your fertility supplements and why a less is more approach is better
    •What is the best fertility supplement to get pregnant?

    The HONEST Truth about Miscarriage and Loss with Jackie Figueras

    The HONEST Truth about Miscarriage and Loss with Jackie Figueras

    You'll know that a few episodes past I shared about a conversation I had with my dear friend, Jackie Figueras, both a registered Nurse (with an impressive resume) and a miscarriage and loss coach that there are so many things we just don't talk about enough when it comes to miscarriage and loss.

    Trigger warning: we get really honest and share the gritty and detailed experiences of our losses in this episode. It was one of the FIRST episodes ever that has truly brought me to tears (I'm usually so great at setting my feelings aside for interviews, but Jackie's story just got me). As we dish down the HONEST truth about miscarriage and loss, we shared:
    The differing emotional and physical experiences of our loss
    What a medical miscarriage really feels like (with tips for anyone who needs to go through it)
    Where healthcare providers are just getting it wrong
    And Jackie shares some really wonderful tips and insights.

    •How to recover from a miscarriage
    •How to help a friend who has had a miscarriage
    •The story of my infertility, IVF and the miscarriage that brought me to my knees
    •How to honor your miscarried baby

    5 lessons from the Meghan Markle Interview

    5 lessons from the Meghan Markle Interview

    Well, I don't know if you got the time to see the Meghan Markle interview (I rarely watch stuff like this on TV) - more of a cooking show kind of girl, but I did take the time to tune into this interview, and wanted to share with you 5 lessons or insights that I had from the Meghan Markle and Oprah Interview, from the perspective of someone who does what I do, in helping women with infertility conquer the stress of infertility so they can thrive through the journey.

    Notes from this episode:

    •You often don't know what someone else is going through
    •You are allowed to struggle, despite your circumstances
    •What really happens when people are hurting

    5 things you need to know about miscarriage

    5 things you need to know about miscarriage

    On today's podcast I'm talking about 5 things you need to know about miscarriage. Know that if you have experienced a miscarriage - whatever the terminology or type or gestation, I am, really and truly, so so sorry.

    We all process miscarriage in different ways and as I always say - please don't let anyone hurry you with their timelines. It's so important for you to process and grieve your miscarriage in a way that works for you.

    I've covered miscarriage and loss on a number of podcasts here, from ways to honor your miscarried baby, how to recover from a miscarriage, the story of my own miscarriage recovery, how to cope with recurrent miscarriage and loss, to an episode with Dr Malinda Lee where we discussed the medical aspects of recurrent loss.

    And on today's podcast I touch on some of the things you may not be aware of with miscarriage, or that nobody talks about.

    Tune into the episode to learn more.

    I also mentioned my friend, Jackie Figueras - you can find her website here.
