My Journey to Conception: Lessons in Letting Go
This is a personal essay sharing my journey to conception, from the decision to start trying at the beginning of the pandemic all the way to the moment I saw that positive double line on a stick. There was much to let go of, from my own expectations and the opinions of others to the unrealistic desire that my body be in absolute perfect health. But it was my mother’s sudden death – whom I hadn’t seen or spoken to in over 15 years – that ultimately paved the way for the healing I needed to become a mother myself.
