The number one thing that I see in my patients who are trying to conceive is that they are in a sense at odds with their body and the fact that they don't have control over their hormones, how they feel or the timeline they place on their journey.
It's hard watching your friends, relatives and practically everyone around you have to ease at conceiving-it feels like everyone has an easier journey than yourself. But I think that deep down, we all feel that it's hard, unknown and that our bodies aren't on our side.
I know, from my own experience and listening to countless women what the struggle is real and very, very lonely.
And I also know what works for my patients is to listen to their own truth. Really listen and slow down and notice all the amazing things that are happening inside of you. Hormones shifting, follicles growing to the right size released at just the right time. It's precise. It's complicated, to say the least, and there are so many, many things that are in your control within the journey that you can create a more peaceful environment which is exactly what your future baby needs you to do.
Because the truth is, you can only control one thing in life-how you show up and treat yourself.
So I invite you to listen to your heart, find the inner voice and really take a moment to hear what you need to get closer to balance and happiness within the journey to motherhood. Because, ladies, it is a journey and it's only the beginning when you conceive that being inside you.
You will spend so much time nurturing your baby inside of you but first-lets learn to give ourselves the grace and compassion we would give our best friend or sister on this journey. Because you deserve that. You really do.
You are not broken. Just out of balance.
And there is so much we can do to create the environment for you to heal. The best thing you can give your to-be baby is the ability to care so completely for yourself with grace, forgiveness, and gentleness.
Really? I mean it, yes. Be selfish in the sense that your self-care isn't pushed to the end of your to-do list every moment.
Put yourself on the calendar, schedule yourself time to care for, relax and be with yourself.
