Surviving infertility is a month by month survival guide written by your virtual girlfriends, Lisa & Fran, and many cameo appearances from mind/body professionals too. We reflect on our infertility experiences, how we coped and what we learned in this guide that is organized by month and covers all of the major holidays and occasions that you must tackle on your journey. We also worked with some well-known mind/body professionals to create guided exercises that complement the monthly content. Monthly workbook pages allow you to create a custom plan to stay on track. The reference section is chock full of infertility terms, tips and tricks to surviving infertility and is a must have reference for anyone going through infertility treatment.

Surviving Infertility: Month by Month Guide eBook is a “self-help” style eBook that helps cope with the challenges you face when you are going through infertility diagnosis and treatment. The dread, fear and despair that can come with an approaching holiday can feel like the walls are caving in. I wanted to help by first letting you know, that it is ok to feel the way you feel AND to provide a helpful exercise for you use to better manage those emotions. As I got deeper into the project it grew into a much bigger and more comprehensive eBook with much more content, many mind/body professionals and sections where you can journal too.
In a world that is so fast paced, you might feel like you don’t have the time to read an entire book, especially if you are in in the doctor’s office every other day. The beauty of this eBook is that it is meant to be a quick reference for you. Just pop it open to the current month, read the chapter and the mind/body practice in less than 15 minutes and feel empowered & enlightened. Of course, you can read it from cover to cover too but if you don’t have the time, you won’t feel like you have to start from scratch.
The book is organized by month and focuses specifically on the holiday, season or special occasion in that month and how it impacts you on your journey. This content was written by Fran Meadows and myself and comes from a patient’s perspective. We understand that all these special days throughout the year can be extremely difficult to navigate. Each month contains a section called the mind/body connection that includes a mind/body practice from a professional and is meant to serve as a way for you to be able to move forward with a way to better manage what you may be struggling with. These practices are quick and easy to follow AND they really will help you learn to refocus your energy in a way that makes you feel empowered.
