1. You're excited about pregnancy but overwhelmed with the process.
2. You enjoy being pregnant but you fear giving birth.
3. You are afraid of not having your 'ideal' birth.
4. There are pregnancy symptoms and complications you fear based on family history or past experiences.
5. You're afraid of the possible physical changes you'll experience.
6. You've experienced pregnancy loss and worry about it happening again.
These are some of the exact struggles I faced in my journey to becoming a mom.
My first experience with pregnancy was when I was 16 years old. I stood on the outdoor of my sister's labor and delivery suite and listened as she gave birth to her stillborn son --my nephew.
"When I was 16 my sister had a stillbirth."
My sister's experience colored my lens of pregnancy for a long time. And after that experience, I declared I didn't want children. Over the years, I was able to come up with several valid reasons for not wanting children; however, if I'm being honest, the #1 reason was always fear.
Are you letting the experiences of others cause your fear?
When I finally opened my heart to the possibility of pregnancy, I did it scared and for some time, I allowed my fears, worries, and self-doubt to influence my decisions.
"I found myself making pregnancy decisions from a place of fear."
Do you think you are making important decisions from a place of fear?
Around the half-way mark of my first pregnancy, I decided that there had to be a better way.
"There had to be a better way to experience pregnancy."
I decided to enjoy my life and my pregnancy because my emotional wellness was just as important as my physical wellness.
Do you know that your physical and emotional wellness are equally important?
Instead of feeling overwhelmed and constantly worrying about making the 'right' choices. I began to educate myself more, trust myself more, and love myself more.
Could you use a little more education, trust, and love?
In April of 2017, I gave birth to a healthy eight-pound baby girl on my own terms.
"Birth and motherhood can show you how strong you are."
That experience empowered my soul!
Your pregnancy can be an empowering experience. Do you believe that??
Approximately, two years later. I had the pleasure of seeing another positive pregnancy test.
- I was excited.
- I felt ready.
- I felt confident.
- I felt unafraid.
That pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.
"Pregnancy loss hurts in places you didn't know existed."
I was devastated.
Have you experienced loss or a challenging unexpected outcome?
You aren't alone.
Do you know you aren't alone?
It's crazy (right?)
The pregnancy that was filled with fear was a positive experience and gave me my greatest gift - my daughter.
The pregnancy that was filled with confidence - was so devastating that I still get a lump in my throat talking about it.
"Feeling vulnerable is okay."
Both experiences made me feel vulnerable and that's OK!
Do you feel vulnerable?
Both experiences were equally valuable in teaching me about fear and pregnancy. Now, I'm sharing the lessons I've learned with you.
I want you to know you can enjoy your pregnancy AND you owe it to yourself to try.
This Challenge is a framework for helping you identify and analyze your fears so that you can master your mindset and emotions during pregnancy and beyond.
"I focus on the mind and body and that makes this product different."
There are tons of websites and books that will tell you what actions to take to promote physical well-being (take your prenatals, sleep, hydrate etc.) during pregnancy but few that target emotional wellness. Both matter.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!
You can be pregnant and unafraid to face your pregnancy fears.
"It's possible to have a positive pregnancy experience and I want to help."
This program is what I wish existed for me before each of my pregnancies.
