TO REWRITE YOUR FERTILITY STORY, YOU NEED A 'WOMB FIRST' APPROACH THAT ENCOMPASSES ALL 6 ELEMENTS OF A HEALTHY PREGNANCY
The Six Elements of Healthy Fertility, #5: WHY
Why is a question that you may find yourself asking often.
“Why NOT me?”
The WHY of your story also shares two sides of the same coin. There’s the physical why as well as the personal, intentional why. Both are essential in creating a fruitful fertility story.
It’s important to understand that infertility is just a symptom. Trying to “heal” infertility can be a bit like trying to fix a tree that isn't flowering by looking at the branches instead of focusing on the roots.
Whether you have high FSH, Endometriosis, PCOS, Fallopian Tube blockage, POF, or even unexplained infertility, it’s important to uncover the root cause in order to heal.
Each woman has her unique complex of needs required to bring her into perfect balance.
When those needs aren’t perfectly attuned to, the resulting imbalances will contribute to her underlying root cause.
Band-Aid fixes like birth control or Clomid are kind of like taking Tylenol for a headache. It may “work” to cover up the pain, but it doesn’t explain why you’re getting the headache in the first place.
Exploring the WHY of your root cause, which often includes a very real, physical unraveling of old energetic patterns, is essential to understanding Fertility.
I also ask that you bring your personal WHY....
To be willing to share what Motherhood means for you.
Sitting with the longing, simmering in the desire, while really feeling into your WHY is also part of the medicine. It can feel vulnerable and raw, but it often gets right to the feeling that will help you access the places in you where intention and healing may be needed.
The longing is your body’s wisdom, and often when we pay deep attention, right there… some magic happens.
Phew, I can stay in the why for hours, but...
Let's move on to the last Element in your fertility story.
