FIND JOY IN THE NOW
Baby & Me is a 3 Year Fertility Mindfulness Journal,
that can be used for all different types of journeys to parenthood.
Whether you are trying to conceive naturally, using Clomid, IUI, IVF, FET,
donor sperm/egg/embryos, going through the adoption process,
taking a break from TTC, during pregnancy and beyond.
This is the space over the next three years that you’re going to embark on creating a more positive journey to parenthood. Throughout the three years, you’re going to answer over 70 prompts and question, to get you to achieve goals, improve your mental wellbeing, creating new habits in both your diet and life. You're going to boost your positive thinking and Self-Love, support your fertility health, express thoughts and feeling about your future family life, reflect on the everyday moments and record important memories. And all just in a few minutes at the end of each day.
It’s as simple as writing down just a line or two, taking a few minutes of your time to help you see something positive about your day to go to bed on a more happier note. The cool part is that you record your answer in the same spot over the three years, which is an excellent way to see where you were, how far you’ve come or where you want to go. Also, the benefits of writing what’s going on during your (in)fertility journey, is you don’t have to wonder “did I feel this way last time” – it’s crazy what you forget on this over the years!!
