Episode 66: How to Heal Trauma with Sarah Baldwin Fertile Ground: A mind-body approach to getting pregnant - without it taking over your life.

    • Mental Health

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!
