I overcame pregnancy fear with an experience that was both painful and difficult. I remember the first time I heard about miscarriage and I actually thought to myself, “What is the big deal about miscarriage?” A woman whom I was working with at a non-profit in Kitchener had missed a meeting and our colleague told me, “She had a miscarriage.” As if I should understand.

Like the child learning to tie her shoes. Or the teenager learning to regulate her choices. These habits can be learned. We can learn to take charge of our well-being No matter how we feel our health is “relative” to the health of others. We can believe and feel that we are well. My own mother was diagnosed with cancer over five years ago. She has always been a “Pollyanna” – an ruthlessly optimistic character from a 1960s Disney movie and book by author Porter. My mom sees the good in everything around her and maintains a positive attitude towards … Read More
Fertile Creative Beings Wanna know something about you?! You are NOT infertile. Yes, it is true! You are a FERTILE being. FERTILE BEINGS For many years I have fought against these expressions.
