How to Tell Your Boyfriend You Can’t Have Children

When is the right time to have “the talk” about having kids with someone you’re dating? Even more importantly, how do you say “I can’t have children” if you’ve been diagnosed with infertility? These tips for telling someone you’re in love with – and perhaps even considering marrying – will give you the support and confidence you need. A reader inspired me to write this article. “How and when do I tell someone I’m dating that I am infertile?” asked Amanda on 9 Tips for a Happy Marriage for Co...

Do You Feel Guilty Because You Can’t Get Pregnant?

Feelings of guilt and shame are common for women who can’t get pregnant. Men, too, struggle with shame and guilty feelings if they can’t “produce” a baby. Sometimes husbands and wives blame each other. I get comments from wives whose husbands make them feel guilty for not getting pregnant. This is ironic because there is a 33% chance that the pregnancy isn’t happening because of male fertility issues! Men who shame or guilt their wives for not conceiving have no idea how foolish they’re being. N...

How To Always Look and Feel Your Best, No Matter What!

Now, more than ever, it is hard to look and feel your best. There are so many external and internal forces working against us. There are fewer reasons to look good because we are going out less and possibly fewer resources to help. There are also increases in anxiety and depression, which can make feeling good hard as well.  In order to look and feel your best, you need to take care of all the areas in your life that contribute to your well-being. Just focusing on one area is great if y...

How Goal Setting Helps You Get Pregnant

Many couples make getting pregnant a goal because it keeps them focused, motivated, and hopeful. These goal setting tips work best if you and your partner are organized, analytical, and can objectively state the reasons you want to have a baby. You may prefer the organization and structure of setting specific goals for pregnancy. Making it a goal to get pregnant seems formal and even cold to some people – especially those who prefer to read articles such as Prayers for Women Who Are Trying t...

Don't Assume an Only Child Is a Lonely Child

I didn’t set out to be the parent of an only child; it just sort of worked out that way. And because my husband, son and I were a foster family for a couple of years, my son’s only-child status might seem a little more pronounced to me than it would to most parents. For my son, it’s not a matter of not knowing what…Read more...

Emotional Care Across the Lifespan

Human beings do not come with instruction books. Perhaps they should because the need for an individual’s emotional care begins before birth and, in truth, well before conception. Ideally, all of our needs — for the structure and function of our bodies and the daily flux of interpretations, decisions and interactions with others — would be met. In reality, nourishment, education, self-control, and wisdom are just the beginning of a lifetime of supporting and fine-tuning the human estate. With ...

What is a fertility vision board, and how can visualizing a baby help you get pregnant? By filling your mind, heart and soul with the life you wish to create! These five steps to creating a vision board for fertility can help bring your pregnancy, baby and future family to life.I’m more of a pray-er than a vision board creator, which is why I wrote Prayers for Women Who Are Trying to Get Pregnant.

How Journaling Can Teach You to Love Your Body

Journaling can transform not only my physical health, but also emotional and spiritual health. I didn’t always love my body. In fact, for years, I hardly thought about it at all. My body was a machine that I worked relentlessly and neglected constantly. It was simply a tool that my brain used to get where it needed to go. I paid no mind to aching muscles, searing headaches and other signs of stress and exhaustion. I ignored my body’s needs until a major health challenge forced me to stop and rec...

Float that Boat!

B'SD (Whoops, I'd meant to post this earlier on Monday) A friend and I were chatting the other day and she spoke of feeling frustrated at not having achieved a goal. I asked "What went wrong?" and she replied with a description of how she'd overestimated how much strength, insight, and patience she had to handle a specific task. Sound familiar? We've all  been through this. We spoke of the goal she had in mind, and I joked "That boat won't float if you use the wrong materials. Bui...

9 Powerful Ways to Care for Your Emotional Health

We tend to dismiss our emotional health. We certainly don’t talk about it around the dinner table, at the office, or really anywhere. If we talk about any kind of health, we prefer to chat about our physical wellness: what we’re eating, and not eating, what kind of exercise we’re trying, and not trying, how much we’re sleeping or not sleeping. One reason we do this is because talking about our physical health offers external validation from others, said Marline Francois-Madden, LCSW, a psychothe...

How to Maintain Your Mental Health as an Expat

Studies from different insurers indicate that expatriate mental health claims are on the rise across the board , all over the world, with one insurer reporting that mental health claims from Europe rose by 33% from 2016-17, and the claims from the Middle East and Africa rising by 28%. Other regions report less dramatic but still significant increases. Whether it’s due to better reporting and diagnosis, or because the world is becoming just a little bit harder to cope with, it’s clear that...

Praying for a Year of Health, Healing, and Happiness

BS'D 8 Tishrei, 5779 I am mourning the murder of an acquaintance yesterday , and recovering from the fact that on Saturday/Shabbat afternoon, my neighbors and I were evacuated to safety by police while sappers dealt with a potentially explosive situation literally outside the entrance of where I live.  Someone had placed a suspicious object there, and disappeared. Bullhorned police requests to claim the item were not answered. That indicated a dangerous situation for everyone on my st...

You Are Worth Taking Care Of

She was standing in front of the bouquets of flowers, with a shopping basket in one hand, purse slung across her shoulder, and her hair tired from a long day at the office. It was rush hour, when women from all walks of life intersected at Trader Joe’s to pick up food for dinner. “Hard to decide what to pick, huh?” I turned to smile, standing next to her. “Yeah,” she answered with a chuckle, probably to be polite. She wore a cool pair of spectacles and a cute wrinkle in her nose when she smiled....

Power Up Your Positive Emotions. Here's How!

Facing the Future Despite the Painful Past

B'SD 18 Cheshvan, 5778 Headlines continue to hold evidence that malcontents already on law enforcement and mental health services radar remain free to strike defenseless innocents once again.

They struggle to face the future despite a painful past. They and you might appreciate this article about a hero...

It was a Report not a Sentence.

B'SD 14 Sivan, 5777 The video I'd posted yesterday has been viewed at other sites, too. As you know, the speaker brought his live audience to their feet! There's more to his story, and I happen to know it, being from Michigan. He was not a shining star in school. He'd been rejected by a few colleges due to his low grade point average. He persevered. And rose above the problems. What's the difference between a person who rises above their circumstances, and someone who doesn't? ...
