Fertility, Mindset, Women's Health

Today we’re talking semantics.

There’s a ton of growing awareness around the fertility problems many couples face (a good thing!). But this also means the word “infertility” is being used more and more.

Now, I know we talk all things fertility here on the blog, but those of you who have been following me for a while may have noticed that I rarely use the word “infertility.”

In this week’s video find out why I don’t like to use this word and why choosing empowering language is so important:

    I removed the word infertility from my vocabulary when I, too felt like something was off hearing the word “infertility”- phrases like infertility issues, treatments, etc. I belief ‘we’ woman are meant to be fertile and are born fertile by divine. The imbalances and blockages in our internal and physical round what creates the dis-ease to conceive naturally or thru science assistance. I love the word empowerment to me means faith and trust with in my self. I am learning that people like you and others empower me, to continue in this fertility journey with grace and stillness. I’m learning the power of holly language, I am learning to clear the blockages… so that I experience maternity, onto motherhood. I am learning what self-esteem means and to live in gratitude…pain endures and expands growth we just got it learn to transform our selves-listen to your soul speak, know your soul. Thank you Kate, for this sacred space. ALL is One.

    Love , April
