Could you describe how exactly working with Hillary helped your fertility?

Um so I was diagnosed with pcos um in August of 2020, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for about eight months since getting off birth control back in January. Um and I knew something was wrong when I never got my cycle back after getting off the pill. So I went to go see my gynecologist and I left that day feeling completely devastated. I immediately thought I'm never going to be able to have Children naturally. And when I was there, I didn't really get any information about pcos, what it meant anyways that I can combat it. The only information I really got was a referral to a fertility clinic. So I concluded that day that that was probably the only way I was ever going to be able to get pregnant. And funny enough, my type a self was already on the phone with the clinic making an appointment before I even got home from that, from the doctor that day. Um I also remember feeling really ashamed of the news and not really wanting anybody to find out what was happening. Um And then getting pregnant, consumed every inch of my brain, it became my entire personality. Um My experience at the fertility clinic also wasn't very good. Um I found it to be mechanical and impersonal. Um like I'd entered a conveyor belt of procedures and everyone was just sitting there with their fingers crossed. So after two failed iis with not really any explanation or hope of more information about why they were failing or ideas of trying things differently. Um It was always let's try the exact same thing again in the exact same way and we'll just hope it sticks. Um And this felt so unproductive to me and it was expensive and it was really invasive. Um So I was feeling really defeated, I felt like I needed to try something different. Um So I started doing some research, probably the research that I should have done before calling the fertility clinic within five minutes of getting my diagnosis. But um I found information on acupuncture and I actually had some friends that had found success in that approach. So I figured what the heck I'd give it a try. Um It would be completely transparent. I really didn't think it was going to work. It felt a little voodoo to me. Um But I was in the phase of my obsession to get pregnant that I wanted to at least be able to say that I tried everything. So I went ahead and I made an appointment at Hillary's office. Um And this is gonna sound really cliche. But the day that I walked into Hillary's office for the first time was really the first day of the rest of my life. Um, and I'm not just saying that because I do now have a beautiful 15 month old son, but because my entire mindset changed, um, it was the result that I didn't even know I was looking for when I started treatment with her. So I sat down in the chair that day and basically admitted defeat to her. And I said, you know, I'm going to have to do IVF. Um I was emotionally a mess. I wasn't sleeping. I was definitely bordering on depression. Um And I was convinced that the only way that I was going to feel better was having a baby and spoiler alert. Um that wasn't true and it also wasn't a sustainable way to live. So with Hillary, we started at the root of the problem. She showed me how I could take back control of my body, eat sleep, manage my PCOS so I could get pregnant naturally. Um It was great for my brain to because it gave me constructive things that I could focus on actions that I could take and finally start to feel back in control of my body. And I started to realize that these things actually weren't happening to me, they were happening for me. Um And on top of all this great mind work we were doing um she was able to get my cycle back in just a month. So one month for treatment, um and the cycle that I hadn't had for an entire year was already back. Um almost couldn't believe it. Uh But I know that it wasn't just the treatments that got me there. Um I was not in a good place mentally. When I walked in that room, my body was not a safe place to grow baby. Um And I had to do the work to and man has that work to help me now that I've become a mom. So in summary, I started seeing Hillary in November of 2020. Um I started cycle again in December of the same year and I was pregnant completely naturally by April of 2021. And as expected as it turns out, in fact, not all of my problems one way the day that I got that positive pregnancy test. Um So the work I do with her continued throughout my pregnancy, even into my first year of being a mom. Um and the techniques and tools that I learned and I'm still learning from Hillary are invaluable and I really find myself using them every day in all parts of my life. And I could not recommend this program enough.
