MYF 38 | Overcoming Perfectionism with Spenser Brassard

Welcome to Episode 38!

In episode 38, we interview certified life coach and mind-body fertility expert, Spenser Brassard. We talk about what really causes pain and suffering for women struggling to conceive and why perfectionism and negative thought patterns actually have just as much power to affect our fertility as poor health, diet, and lifestyle. And, of course, we talk about how we can start to overcome some of these issues, find true joy and happiness (even before that positive test shows up), and significantly boost fertility in the process! This episode is truly a must-listen if you’ve been having a tough time mentally and emotionally while trying to conceive.
