Someone asked me once… ”What is it that drives you? What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?”
I thought this was a great question, so I wrote a blog post describing the processes I use to keep myself motivated. But the question kept popping up back in my head, and I soon realised it was because I had not been 100% honest and real…
Since I was a young woman, I have always had a strong desire to have children. I just knew it was something I really wanted to experience, and couldn’t wait to be at that stage of my life!
Then six years ago, when I was 27, I was given some news that shook me to the core of my womb and immediately wrapped me in a thick blanket of fear. I discovered I had a dermoid cyst on my ovary, and I was told that my whole ovary would have to be removed.
I felt scared & alone.
I was approaching my 30’s and still very much single, but I knew then, that if I was to have a healthy child in my 30’s I needed to take good care of myself NOW.
Instead of playing victim and wallowing in self-pity, I decided to look at my cyst as a sign that I needed to change something in my life. It was a gift that gave me the courage & strength to get myself back on track.
Who knew when I would meet the right man? This was not in my power, but the health of my body was…and so this is what became the center of my focus and drive;
A healthy body for a healthy conception in my 30’s.
Having previously had serious abdominal surgery after a car accident, which left a big 20cm scar down my belly, and emergency appendix surgery (mine burst!), and then the ovarian cyst, it finally dawned on me…
I realised that the deepest driving factor behind my own personal healing journey, and now my work, has always been…
And not just for me, but for the health of mother earth. Discovering the high-rates of infertility, seeing young children being fed processed chemical-laden foods, and watching young woman dis-respecting their bodies (used to be me!) all make my heart bleed.
But I was never brave enough to share my infertility fears with anyone. I thought people might think I’m silly, especially because I didn’t even have a boyfriend at the time, and the thought of pregnancy and children were such a long way off…if ever?
With the support of some of my incredible soul sisters at a recent business retreat, I unveiled the core essence of my business and with that, a much clearer direction.
The focus of my work will be around:
Pregnancy Preparation, Body Empowerment & Belly Love
We will dive into:
- physical elements (core strength, back pain, movement nutrition, gut health, ovarian cysts, scars, digestive problems)
- emotional elements (pain, fear, confusion, empowerment, body image)
- metaphysical elements (base chakras, womb wisdom, womb healing, feminine essence, intuition).
All of the topics that make my heart sing, and make for healthy, happy & fertile woman….which means a healthier next generation and a healthier planet.
I am in the beginning stages of developing a program called ‘BARE YOUR BELLY’ which will be specifically designed for woman who want to bring love and nourishment to their belly, pelvis, core, womb and the power center of the body.
There will be a lot of ‘pregnancy preparation’ focus, but this doesn’t have to be in the immediate future for you…heck you might not even have a man yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start this work now! It will just mean you will be ready for when it does happen. And who knows, maybe doing this work on yourself might actually bring you closer to finding ‘the one’?!!
You may have also seen on facebook that the ’21-Day Wholefood Cleanse’ is no longer going to be run live, although the program will still available as a download from my site. With this new clarity and direction, I need to create space in my life to immerse in the processes, to research, get creative, get curious, play and write.
I want to hear from you!
Are you a young woman with fertility fears? Are you still single and worried you won’t meet a man till you are much older? Are you in your 30’s and wanting to get pregnant soon with your lover?
