Anxiety. Waiting. Insecurities. Hormones. Fears. Excitement. Identity. Big Changes.
I could keep this post as simple as that. With any of those, it’s important to have a partner you can lean on, trust, and communicate with as challenges and triumphs arise.
All of us, even when we’re in the best and healthiest relationships of our lives, have things that we can be working on and so do our partners. You are about to embark on a life changing adventure together, and it can be incredibly helpful to work out some of the kinks before diving into this time.
Before you start trying to conceive, a phase of this journey that no one can predict how long it will last.
Before your hormones are all over the place and you struggle to keep your emotions in check.
Before baby comes and you find yourselves overjoyed and sleep deprived all at once.
Before it sets in how much has changed, it’s important to be able to communicate what’s most important to you, individually and as a couple, and it’s important to know that you can always count on each other.
Your relationship will shift.
Your communication skills will need to be clearer than ever.
Your money stories will come up and possibly collide.
Your sex life will change but it can be in positive ways.
That’s why I am bringing 4 experts to share with you next week during the Creating Fertile Ground Virtual Conference. They will cover these key pieces and share with you what you can be doing now so you have a strong foundation, built together, from the very beginning of this journey.
While you wait to soak up their knowledge, I encourage you to start thinking about one thing in your partnership that you would like to strengthen. If you feel comfortable, please share it in the comments below and get the conversation started!
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
