Six years ago when I was struggling on my own infertility journey, I picked up the book “Inconceivable”. Seven hours later, I put it down. I was completely inspired. To hear that the author, Julia Indichova, had an FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) of 42- the same as her chronological age- and was able to conceive was more hopeful than anything I had heard.
Even though my FSH had never been the issue, there was something so healing and inspirational about Julia’s story. Like me, she was struggling with secondary infertility. Like me, she wanted to believe in her own internal powers. Like me, she knew the importance of believing in herself. It worked for her. Julia delivered a baby boy at 44 years old.
It was literally the next week that I bought her second book, “The Fertile Female”, another four hours of reading and I was hooked. How was I going to integrate this powerful message into my own life and journey? How was I going to cultivate a mothering voice inside myself that comforted me along the way? I remember thinking about creating my own yoga routine. I thought about saying a daily prayer in a quiet space where I could also meditate. The books made me think about different ways I could relate to myself, and my experience.
My journey, as did Julia’s, had a happy ending. Julia continues to inspire me as an author, advocate, and inventor of the Fertile Heart Ovum Fertility Program. Julia views infertility as an opportunity and a gift. I highly recommend both of Julia’s books and her website to all the women that attend my groups.
Last month, I emailed Julia to enquire if she would attend as keynote speaker to the Mind Body Fertility Conference. I couldn’t believe it when she said yes. I feel so grateful that she accepted the speaking invitation, as she doesn’t normally present at these types of events.
