Laurie was sitting in the waiting room at the fertility clinic in January. It was nerve wracking to be back.
After 8 IUI's and lots of naturopathic remedies her Angel Madison was born. Her second pregnancy was conceived naturally but she miscarried at 8 weeks. Laurie was terrified of having another miscarriage. That day as she was waiting to see the doctor she received an email from me that changed her life. (fyi – watch your inbox on Saturday morning for yours).
Laurie is now 26 weeks pregnant. (You can see her and Madison together in the image). I asked her to answer 6 thought-provoking questions and here's how she answered…
Interview with Laurie
1. What were your 3 biggest challenges or struggles before you signed up to work with me?
1. I really wanted to conceive naturally and without medical intervention.
2. I was trying to stay positive and believe that it would happen (and that I wouldn't miscarry again).
3. Time was not on my side, my biological clock was ticking. (Laurie is 39).
2. How did you benefit from our work together?
The most important benefit that I received was getting pregnant the natural way with the help of meditation and yoga. However, I have also received emotional support and insights on my relationship with my mother and husband based on exercises that Zahra worked with me on.
She helped me open up and be truthful with myself (as we all know how difficult it is to admit or see certain things). I really appreciated all the womb healing and theta healing sessions she gave me especially when Zahra noticed my emotions and issues I was struggling with based on my homework exercises.
3. What were the biggest concerns or hesitations you had before signing up to work with me?
I would have to say, “ Is this going to work, cause I’ve tried everything else” ie. …Acupuncture, Chinese medicine, IUI. And will I be able to afford it?
4. What would you say to someone who was on the fence about signing up for private fertility support from me, and had the same hesitations?
I would tell them, “there’s nothing to lose, you’re already half way there and tried everything else”. I would ask them to try the Moon Goddess program for the trial period you offer (30-days) and if they like it, to sign up for more support.
The private support could get expensive but in the end it is more affordable than fertility treatments and you’re not putting drugs into your body. It's all natural and very healing as well.
5. What did you enjoy the most about the Moon Goddess program and our work together?
I really enjoyed your support, guidance and knowledge. You really care about your clients. I especially enjoyed the workout that I received from the Moon Goddess fertility yoga practice, you really know you’re talking about and most importantly you listen.
I must say I appreciated the flexibility of our schedule as well, it made it easier to accommodate our busy schedules. I also truly enjoyed the meditation even though I usually fell asleep before it was all done!
6. Out of the many ‘fertility experts’ out there, why did you decide to work with me specifically?
I came from a fertility clinic and did fertility yoga with an instructor whom was not spiritual at all. I was sitting and waiting in the clinic one morning and received an email from you and decided to read it. I replied not even sure where it would take me but thought it was worth a try and before you know I received a reply back the next day saying you have accepted my case and we chit chatted for half an hour. It was during the ½ hr that I knew I wanted to work with you cause you listened and asked the right questions.
Final words from Laurie
“I want to sincerely thank you for being there and for being patient with me when I was down. Especially when I came home sick from my vacation and found out that I was pregnant and you took care of me by “healing” my womb and “welcoming” my baby into this world. I know the support you gave me and the guidance from the “Universe” has made it possible for me to conceive. Up until today, I still thank the universe every morning on my drive to work for bringing our paths together and guiding my baby back to our family. I share my success story about working with you to all my friends. Some may think I’m crazy and some would say “that’s great”, but I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that working with you has helped make my family complete because I am now going into my 26th week with a strong and healthy baby growing inside me. Thank you Zahra. Madison, Lee and I are forever grateful.”
