Hello Goddess Momma
A little more about me. I was born in Philly, raised in South Florida, explored adulthood a bit in NYC, the majority of the time in LA with a short stint in Dubai, five years in Miami, and now I finally have my dream home outside of Nashville, TN with my husband, two German Shepherds, and depending on when you read this our baby girl, Natalia Franki (IVF Warrior #3).
The first time I really felt connected to my divine motherhood was when a close friend had a blessing way for her baby shower. It was the first time that I understood how powerful and amazing women are. I grew up as a tomboy and throughout my life, I was just not in tune with what being a female meant. I wasn't ready to have children in my 20's and early 30's and had no idea how my body worked beside my monthly flow. I was young and healthy and just living life.
What shocked me at Brooke's blessing way was the beauty of a pregnant woman.
I was transformed that day. Over the next five years, I would get signs through my spiritual teachers and meditations that working with women was going to be a big part of my life. I would acknowledge these signs, but let them go as I was not sure what it meant.
...And then came baby fever around age 37!! I was ready to have my own child.
According to my Vedic Astrologer, I was moving into my Goddess Momma phase due to the shift in my planets. In October 2017
I would be in my Moon/Venus phase for the next two years. Little did I know it might take me that much time to get pregnant.
My journey through fertility began...
Once society got in my head, I decided to get my blood work done to see what my options were. After finding out I had extremely low AMH, my husband and I decided to start the IVF path after a year of trying.
2 Failed IVF's Later...
And more talks with loved ones and doctors about another cycle or egg donor options I realized I was looking for other people to give me the answers instead of trusting my intuition. For me, it was important that I carry my child. That is what a female body can do and I want that transformational experience. After my second IVF cycle, I found my mat again, and started honoring my body by fueling it with the necessary nutrients, yoga, acupuncture, womb healing ritual, and energy work while living in a higher vibration of thoughts knowing that I will be a pregnant Goddess Momma very soon.
Nine months later, we decided to do one more round of IVF. March of 2019 we did a frozen transfer and our beautiful healthy baby girl, Natalia Franki was born Nov. 2019.
For a detailed look at how I believe I finally got pregnant after three years listen to this podcast episode.
"One day a force of strength from somewhere in my body picked me up and put me on my mat. I healed a piece of me that day. And each day thereafter as I stepped on my mat, I healed more until one day I was WHOLE again."
