Infertility Awareness Week 2019 is around the corner... Let's start the conversation!
April is an important time of year to bring awareness to those special considerations surrounding Infertility Awareness. I'm offering a complimentary webinar - totally complimentary - around that Pineapple Express Mindset shift to connecting with our entire life while trying to conceive with fertility concerns.
You can expect:
❤︎ Hope, inspiration, and tools to connect with Kindness, Compassion and Control through TTC with fertility concerns.
❤︎ Stories of transition from that "Pineapple Express" mindset to living, reconnecting with life.
❤︎ Zero, zilch, nada, not one sales pitch on this webinar... It's for you! (It's a total irky thing for me to get on a webinar and it be all about sales - Ick. I don't like it, I'm not going to do that to you.)
At the completion of the webinar, you will be given a Thank You gift of access to a growing library of meditations for you.
I know how busy life is at this time... My commitment is to meet you where you are - in your heart, in your pain, in your healing. Let's get this conversation going! Reserve your spot... I look forward to seeing you on April 8th!

Positivity through Fertility Treatment - Tough yet Possible!
Maintaining positivity is tough enough... imagine while going through fertility treatment. Research does look at the impact of outlook and the differences between optimistic or pessimistic mindsets toward fertility treatment. Just in 2012, "FERTILITY TREATMENT RESPONSE: IS IT BETTER TO BE MORE OPTIMISTIC OR LESS PESSIMISTIC?" was published in Psychosomatic Medicine. The article suggests a tendency toward a more positive outcomes for those with an optimistic outlook. Hmmmmm...really?
In my own work with women and couples, I see something similar. There are some key factors that contribute to well-being during fertility treatment:
❤︎ grieving their fertility struggle, pregnancy loss or unsuccessful treatment
❤︎ quieting the worry, fear, apprehension and realistically recognizing skills, roles and who is in control of what through treatment
❤︎ identifying useful and purposeful action during specific times of the fertility treatment process
❤︎ positive intentions or affirmations and mindfulness throughout the treatment time of life
Positivity is possible, just as much as the hurts are real. Chartreuse Center offers online courses, a podcast/blog and counseling to help folks where they are.
