Sarah Banks is a fertility coach who knows what it's like to want a baby desperately and to feel the grief every month that she still wasn't pregnant. Sarah and her husband tried for a baby for four years before going down the assisted conception route. She says her life felt like it was on hold and out of her control while others around her were moving forward with theirs. She also understands that beginning fertility treatment can be the start of a whole new set of problems and worries and the daily scans, hormone drugs and waiting can be an extremely distressing process.
As she began her second round of treatment she knew she wasn't in the right frame of mind. She was convinced it was never going to happen she'd never be a mum. So she made a decision at that point to go and see a life coach who helped her reframe the way she was thinking and manage her anxiety.
That made a huge difference to the way she was feeling about the process. Well she was blessed with her little boy, Jack and believes that the coaching she received played a part in her conceiving on the second transfer.
So she left her job as a senior retail buyer and retrained in personal development coaching and now works as a fertility mentor and coach helping individuals and couples who are struggling with infertility and going through fertility treatments.
Sarah feels honoured to be working with people on their incredibly difficult journey. Helping them to feel less anxious and more positive going forward on their fertility journey.
