EP 075: Pursuing motherhood through menopause with Kate Codrington
On the podcast today, I’m talking with Kate Codrington about her new book Second Spring and her passion for supporting women before, during and after menopause. You may wonder what place menopause has on a fertility podcast. But with more women trying for babies when they are peri or post-menopausal, often with donor treatment, I believe it’s important to have these conversations.
Kate has always been a passionate supporter and advocate for women, and her new book, Second Spring, has a really refreshing focus on self-care through menopause. I was so pleased that Kate was up for this conversation, which I believe really needs to be happening for everyone who is trying for a baby at this time in their lives.
Kate will also be joining us in the Fertile Mindset Sanctuary for a live chat with our members. If you’re not a member yet, then we’d love you to join us for this chat with Kate and also to plug into lots of amazing support for the emotional aspects of fertility. You can read all about Sanctuary membership and join us today at www.fertilemindset.com/sanctuary
Here’s what is included in this episode:
- An introduction to the seasonal view of the menstrual cycle and how this can support us.
- The seasons that apply to the menopausal part of life.
- Hear about Kate’s “hug of a book” Second Spring, which includes tons of self-care to prepare for and then live through menopause and beyond.
- What women who are becoming parents during this time most need by way of support and self-care.
If the topics talked about in the podcast sound like I was speaking directly to you and your thoughts, then I would love to invite you into the Fertile Mindset Sanctuary. This is my fertility support membership, where you can free yourself from stress, worry and any emotions that don't feel helpful, so you can then create a naturally supportive mindset; your Fertile Mindset.
In the Sanctuary I'll guide you through using the emotional healing technique I use at Fertile Mindset called EFT, and you'll soon be feeling less stressed and more joyful.
