If you’ve been diagnosed with infertility or you are trying to conceive after miscarriage, likely you struggle with feelings of vulnerability, self-doubt and disappointment.
To have these feelings appearing month after month can take a toll on your “fertile confidence” — your belief in yourself and your body’s ability to have a successful pregnancy and parent a child.
Women who have a high level of fertile confidence are more likely to create a positive outcome, even when the odds are stacked against them.
So, how can you create more confidence that you are on track after a huge or recurring disappointment?
At Well Women Acupuncture, we’ve seen first hand that women are able to rebuild their fertile confidence by finding these 3 attributes inside themselves:
- A willingness to do some personal discovery work. In order to strengthen the belief that a baby is possible (especially when odds appear to be stacked against us), we’re required to find the willingness to believe that we can make necessary changes that will create a new & different outcome.
- A commitment to heal and release pain from loss. Trying to conceive after a miscarriage or when facing constant disappointment requires making the commitment to say goodbye to the pain of a loss, or staying committed to the process of healing in general, especially when we feel like giving up.
- The courage to be vulnerable and share emotional feelings with trusted friends about the ways in which we are growing and coping with feelings of inadequacy, frustration and doubt.
Rebuilding fertile confidence is an “inside job,” but it’s possible if you dig deep enough and stay determined to find these attributes inside yourself.
