    Putting the love back into your love making. ;)

    We get that it's tough, especially the last couple of years with COVID to keep things lively and positive when TTCing. 
     
    Some couples report that their relationship is affected positively both in how they now interact with each other emotionally and also in the physical and intimate part of their relationship.

  8. Understanding miscarriage

    Understanding miscarriage

    Miscarriage is very common and it’s a topic.  It is estimated that 1:6 of pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Despite being common, this does not take away the heartbreak that suffering from a miscarriage causes. Each individual acts differently to a pregnancy loss. Emotions that women and couples feel range from anger, grief, disappointment, and guilt, to fear of it happening again and sadness or depression. These emotions are completely normal and if you have had a miscarriage it is important to allow yourself the time to grieve for your loss.
