About Manifesting Motherness
Before I conceived my daughter, I had been in fertility treatment for 4 years, which ended because two separate clinics believed I wouldn’t conceive, even with assistance, and suggested that I consider egg donation or adoption.
I believe that I healed myself by restoring balance in four main ways: spiritual, mental, emotional and physical and lifestyle. I also believe that it was this need to return to balance that was the underlying reason for the attraction of infertility into my experience, ie. I didn’t change my way of being in order to become a mother; I denied myself motherhood to show myself how much I needed to change my way of being.
When my daughter was born, I found myself in many conversations with women – and sometimes men – about the journey I had travelled and my growth and expansion along the way. It emerged that the issues I’d dealt with weren’t unique to me. They struck a resonance with dozens of people and, for many, this type of holistic work with other therapists and healers had also, unlocked the barriers that had held them back from parenthood.
I am a lawyer by training and was a banker for over 20 years, a profession I returned to after my daughter was born. When she was 18 months old, I had the opportunity to take a break from my corporate job and spend time with her until she began school. In this time, I began to write what I thought would be a blog about my experience and found, to my surprise, that it grew into a book !!
As the book progressed, I saw patterns and connections in the work I had done to heal myself, and I built a model and a program which others could use for their own healing. I’ve loved the gift of being with my daughter as she grows and I realised that helping other women to do this feels like the most purposeful and meaningful work I could do at this stage in my life so here I am, building a practice as a fertility coach, to help other women find their way to motherhood by engaging with their inner work.
