Great Info & Comfort while TTC

I just found out I am pregnant after many months of trying to conceive. This podcast was a great source of information and comfort while we were TTC, and I am glad I started incorporating some of the stress-reducing and mind-body connecting strategies earlier this year.

After privately TTC for a few months already, I was looking for a fertility podcast that was digestible and relevant for me to feel less lonely about this process. Dr. Kelsey’s podcast was the best fit. I have listened to episodes out of order since January. Her voice is really calming and I got a lot out of her episodes, particularly about recovering from burnout, reducing stress, and establishing a mind-body connection.

The cycle syncing episodes were also a touchstone for me each time I went through my cycle, and I tried to incorporate the energy and needs of each phase into my daily life. I had never thought about my body in this way, and it provided me with a new perspective for taking care of myself as I struggled with stress and lack of control. I wouldn’t be in the much calmer headspace I am now without the help of this podcast.

Thank you so much!

Profanity

I wanted to love this, but all the profanity just makes her seem uneducated!
