053: How to End Guilt and Self-Blame When You're Going Through Infertility or a High-Risk Pregna

You know infertility and a high-risk pregnancy is not your fault. You KNOW it. But the thoughts just don't stop.

Why is this happening?

What did I do to cause this?

Why am I so broken?

If that sound like you, this episode is a must listen.


Episode highlights...

  • The quote that sent me over the edge in protectiveness of my clients and all women going through infertility and a high-risk pregnancy

  • How our culture's reliance on cause-and-effect explanations hurt women's ability to heal after infertility and high-risk pregnancy

  • The way infertility, loss and a high-risk pregnancy impacted my emotional wellbeing and fueled my guilt

  • How I coped with guilt and self-blame during my very high-risk pregnancy after infertility (HINT: I don't recommend anyone try it)

  • How our ability to talk ourselves in and out of anything impedes most women's ability to let go of guilt and self-blame

  • The #1 thing all women need to do when trying any strategy to relieve guilt and self-blame
