How To Deepen Faith From A Jewish Perspective During Fertility Journey
Dec 15, 2021
Amira Posner joins us as we're digging into deepening your faith from a Jewish perspective during the fertility journey.
Welcome to day #2 of our series on faith and fertility.
When we are faced with a fertility diagnosis such as low AMH, high FSH, premature ovarian insufficiency, or diminished ovarian we may feel shocked, hopeless, lost, and overwhelmed.
Over the next 3 days, I’ll be discussing how our faith can help us during our fertility journey.
Because we can change our diet, improve our sleep, do all the latest tests to optimize our fertility, but it is equally important to work on our mindset and the belief that we are parents the moment we begin trying to conceive.
Our Fab Fertile Method includes a mind, body spirit approach to fertility. All steps are necessary – not all at once – but layered in a personalized approach.
Today I’m excited to welcome Amira Posner. Amira is part of my team at Fab Fertile. She is a professional therapist who specializes in supporting couples who are on the fertility journey.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- How to deepen our connection to God during the fertility journey from a Jewish perspective
- How prayer help when we are in the middle of a struggle
- Specific scriptures that can help us on the fertility journey
- The rules around the Jewish faith and how this can impact us
How to make synagogues welcoming to a couple who is trying to conceive as there are many triggers (i.e. families, children, and pregnant bellies)
Excited that our LIVE Fertility Diet Challenge is launching on Nov 8th. You'll receive newly designed chef-prepared recipes (perfect for autumn and curated to optimize fertility). There will be daily motivation, guidance, and support from the Fab Fertile Team. Join the Fertility Diet Challenge here>>>>http://fertilitydietfreebie.com/

This can feel stressful but is designed to help us get to the root cause of your fertility issues and will help me to give you the best possible action plan at the end of the call.
However, to reassure you – on this call we won’t be digging into the trauma associated with infertility/miscarriage/loss – rather we are focused on solutions and an ACTION PLAN as to how our Fab Fertile Method can help you get pregnant naturally.
