This is the sixth episode of my Fertility Awareness Reality Series! I share the work that I do with clients “on air” with you in these special episodes where I am hosting live mini-sessions with women who I have worked with.
In today’s episode, I interview Aarathi. Aarathi was a member of my previous Fertility Friday Group Program, who has been trying to conceive for quite some time. After a failed attempt at IVF Aarathi sought a more natural route which is what lead her to discover the podcast. She wanted to be part of this series hoping that her story may give hope and/or inspiration to others.
Make sure to head over to my Group Programs page to find out more about my upcoming January 2017 group programs and how you can apply to be a part of it! You’ll want to apply early as there are a limited number of participants I can accept into each group.
