We just finished an amazing retreat in Los Angeles (http://thefertilesoul.com/shop/retreats) with women from all over the world. One of the common themes among the women was the topic of regret. When I returned home, I received an e-mail from a dear friend going through this journey, and the topic surfaced again. Regret, remorse, should have, shouldn't have, guilt, shame, if only...
If we examine the list of our regrets associated with fertility (http://www.thefertilesoul.com/di Read more

It is widely accepted that high levels of stress are associated with difficulty conceiving and maintaining pregnancy.

A new study of women undergoing IVF, measured levels of stress hormones throughout the IVF process, and found a correlation between lower levels of stress and increased success rates.

I love sending out e-newsletters, because I always end up getting replies and updates from clients whom I haven't seen for a while. Some send pregnancy updates, baby pictures, or just touch base to let me know how they have been. But I was deeply touched when so many people replied yesterday about my upcoming trip to Ethiopia to go get our second son (after a three-plus year wait!).

When I was about to go on maternity leave and had to put the class on hold in the summer of 2008, five women who met there decided to get each others’ contact info and stay in touch. That Read more

Independence Day celebrates breaking free from the control of the motherland. We eat, drink, gather with friends and family, and watch the sky fill with fireworks. The day ends, and we go back to our lives, unchanged., having just given our energy to another past moment in history.
