The journey to parenthood doesn’t always go as first planned. But I tell you what, the lessons learnt along way are definitely ones that are unique to the experience.

Now that I am on the other side of my own journey I have found it very interesting to reflect on some of the biggest lessons I learnt whilst navigating my own path to becoming a mother and creating my family.

Here are the biggest lessons I learnt on my own fertility journey:

1. How resilient I am.

The resilience needed to pick one’s self up month, after month, after month, after month of unsuccessful conception attempts is nothing short of amazing. The strength and endurance needed to be this resilient is honestly next level. Oh, and then add in the ebb and flow of hormones that come with each month/cycle and you really do have a recipe for the creation of the most resilient human EVER!

2. To trust my intuition.

When you know you just know. You know that you are meant to be a mother, a father, a parent. It’s almost like you can feel your child already in your life, but are just so confused as to why they have not yet arrived. You need to trust this instinct. If it is for your first child, your second, or even your 10th, if you know you are meant to be their parent just trust your intuition and keep inviting them in.

3. Becoming stronger together.

This journey can be used as an opportunity to bring you and your partner closer together as a team.

Yup, you read that right. I know it gets real tough at times, but that person who has chosen to walk beside you on this journey is still standing next to you and wants this just as badly as you do. I found many, many times my husband and I were taking our fertility frustrations out on each other and this was not a healthy way to live or be in a relationship.

At the time I could see why so many would get divorced when going through this. It’s just fucking exhausting and draining… And it is those closest to us that we vent it out on.

I found it helpful to first start noticing and making myself aware of my own patterns of behaviour when dealing with the sadness, the grief, the pain of this journey. Then I would practise pulling myself up in those moment when I was clearly taking my frustrations out on my partner. This was tough at first but it got easier, and the more self aware I become of my own reactive patterning when dealing with these emotions, the more I was able to stop myself before I was about to go into that toxic behaviour.

By changing my own behaviours when moving through these emotions I found we opened up a level of communication between us that allowed us to both be more conscious and connected when moving through the more harder times of our journey.

At this stage of our fertility struggles I was training in NLP (Neurolinguistics Programming) so was learning all about patterns of behaviours and tools to change negative behaviours and patterns. Though, if you and your partner find yourselves venting your fertility frustrations out on each other, like we did, and are looking for assistance then I highly recommend finding a counsellor who is trained in the GOTMAN’s technique and work together with them as they will be able to help you both find a way forward on this journey that brings you closer and gives you the skills to work together.

What is also great about becoming so aware of your own, and your partners, grief/sadness/pain behavioural patterns whilst on this journey, is that if you can change these negative behaviours to more positive ones before you have your baby, the more you will be able to come together as the most incredible parenting team to that child you are calling in.

These lessons (and more) are the gold that were found in the dark times along our fertility journey.

And all of these lessons have become a huge part of the SPRING approach – to allow the body to tell us what it needs, to trust the process, to be a place of comfort and support and to be there in the times of despair and the times of celebration.
