Now onto today’s topic – keeping motivated on your fertility journey!
- How do you keep going in the face of so much adversity?
- How do you pick yourself up after a failed cycle or another monthly disappointment?
- How do you maintain hope when everything is telling you it’s not going to happen?
There are so many questions
We talk about how it’s your underlying faith or believe in becoming a mum that is the foundation of your motivation and that it’s ok to nurture that hope. Many of us try to protect ourselves with negative thoughts in case of a negative outcome, but often it doesn’t soften the blow if the outcome is negative and means you are living amongst negativity! So, we talk about being positive and keeping that hope alive.
Next, we turn to some specific strategies to help your mindset and help you stay strong on your journey.
