What happens if this doesn’t work out how you planned? Mar 11, 2024

When you’re struggling to conceive, or to stay pregnant, this is a question we ask ourselves all the time.

Letting go of self-blame on your fertility journey Feb 19, 2024

Last week I wrote a blog on all the things we blame ourselves for, and why these things are not your fault. You can read the exhaustive (and exhausting) list HERE.

I think deep down we know we’re being unreasonable in our self-blame, and that the things we’re blaming ourselves for...

This is not your fault – and here’s why... Feb 05, 2024

We live in a world where it’s more important to find out who’s fault something is, rather than how we solve the problem. We point fingers, assign blame, and unfortunately get wrapped up in hate and judgement. That’s the outside world, and unfortunately, we can’t always...

Losing hope, and how to find it again Dec 11, 2023

Hope. It’s a four-letter word that holds so much promise, and is essential in life.  In fact, it should really be listed in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as a basic human need.
