Here is what some of my past clients have said about working together
I attended one of your mini 5 day courses earlier in the year, and am now 22 weeks pregnant! I have found that I’ve been able to advocate for myself and ask more probing questions around the need for certain plans and treatments. I’ve been classed as high risk due to BMI, but I’ve been surprised to find that I have no (or minimal!) guilt or anxiety around this as I may have done previously. And have not felt compelled to restrict foods, as I hear so many other pregnant people feeling the need to do when I look on forums.
I have also felt confident enough to start pregnancy yoga and aqua natal classes with no feelings of shame, or like I don’t deserve to be there.
So this is just a huge Thank you! For all that you have helped me with and all that you continue to do for this community.
Nicola’s fertility program was the best decision I made on my journey to becoming pregnant. I thought conception would come easily, coming from a large family, being in my early 30s and in good health. After months of trying, I became a wreck on a monthly basis, waiting to see if this would be the month…
Nicola’s program taught me to think outside of the mere mechanics of conception and consider my wellbeing holistically. Through the simple but informative workbooks, we identified other influences in my life which may have been having a negative effect and found solutions so I could control the impact they were having on me. The exercise and diet suggestions I am sure not only helped me conceive, but have found a place in my everyday life, and I am still using the relaxation and mindfulness techniques suggested by Nicola.
What’s more, the course welcomes input from your partner, so my husband has been involved on this journey with me, and could support me with the changes I made as a result of Nicola’s guidance. My weekly calls with Nicola helped me delve deeper, investigating further the concerns I had identified when going through the workbooks, and motivated me to keep working on my own wellbeing as a fertility tool.
For me, the best thing about this program is the personalisation. Nicola got to know the journey I was on, and coached me through that journey. This wasn’t a generic approach to a problem, but a tailored solution for my life. I would advise anyone thinking about trying to conceive to give this a go. Thank you, Nicola!
I felt overwhelmed by fear and anxiety, full of negativity, blame and anger and beating myself up for feeling like this. I was completely unable to discern useful (lifestyle) changes to make and lacking the tools to bring them in realistically
Your lovely, empathic, warm style was really welcoming and so different to other programs where you feel constantly bombarded with info or people trying to sell you something. I loved the style of the workbooks and info, and the weekly meditations were wonderful! It was so lovely to all be there together sharing the journey and feeling held, heard and healed
I now feel more positive and in control of my lifestyle and more accepting of the challenges of this fertilty journey and everything it brings up. I feel more able to accept difficult emotions rather than shutting them out or beating myself up about feeling them.
I have made significant changes to my diet and self-care regime (including making more time for meditation, exercise and better sleep!) and feel very good about this.
Not so specific but I have a deeper sense of genuine hopefulness for the future whatever it brings
I would highly recommend Nicola – it really helps to have someone there to support you along the way, helping you make important changes to improve diet and lifestyle and stop you worrying as much! I’d never heard of a fertility coach before coming across Nicola, but more women should have one, it’s a very valuable service. It felt like talking to a really knowledgeable friend, who genuinely cared. The added touches of cards and little emails to help me stay on track were so thoughtful and much appreciated.
