I first met Julia at the lowest point of our fertility journey. We knew we were going to miscarry, but my body didn't know it yet, and we were technically still pregnant. I was so devastated because we had been trying for years to conceive. Julia was a life saver. During my first meeting with her, I was so upset, I couldn't even speak. I sat in front of her just bawling my eyes out. Julia taught me grounding and calming techniques that dealt with the immediate trauma. As I worked with her over the years, I have learned self compassion, self care, strategies to calm my system, different ways to work on our relationship and communication. To say that Julia has been an integral part of our fertility journey would be an understatement. She was with us every step of the way; soothing every disappointment and celebrating every win no matter how small.
P.S. I am happy to add that when we finally did conceive our miracle child, Julia couldn't have been more excited or supportive! I continue to work with her now to improve my parenting skills!
