Connecting with your Spirit Baby with guest Justine Cohen

Fringe Fertility Podcast with Kerry HindsSep 13, 2023

Connecting with your Spirit Baby with guest Justine Cohen

Connecting with your Spirit Baby with guest Justine Cohen

When it comes to dealing with fertility challenges - big questions inevitably arise: Why me? What am I doing wrong? Why is this taking so long? I’m doing everything right, and I’m still not pregnant!?  These are big spiritual questions that western medicine can’t help you with. So where to turn? Spirit Babies of course! Connecting with your Spirit Baby CAN help with answering these questions.

There is mystery surrounding Spirit Babies - What are they? How do we connect with them? Do I have a Spirit Baby? All valid questions - and we are here to answer them! 

In this episode I am talking again with Justine Cohen all about Spirit Babies and how our upcoming workshop (held twice a year) is a perfect way to ease into the Spirit Baby Realm.

Justine Cohen is a psychic medium in the fertility space, specializing in spirit babies. She's a priestess and ceremonialist, initiated in the energies of Ancient Egypt and the Celtic Magdalen. She provides connection to spirit babies, spiritual womb healing, feminine embodiment, and personal transformation. She's also a plant medicine co-facilitator and currently lives in Los Angeles.

And so today, Justine is going to take you through how you can begin to create connections with your spirit babies in your daily life, as well as describe how spirit babies show up earthside. I also share my experiences with spirit babies and why I love sharing this work with my students.

What we talk about!

  • What are spirit babies

  • Kerry’s first encounter with Spirit Babies and how it shifted her fertility journey from one of frustration and anger - to acceptance and patience

  • Creating a fertility team effort with yourself, spirit baby, and partner (if you’re TTC with one)

  • Do you have spirit babies only during your fertile years? Or do you have them before and after?

  • Kerry talks about her Spirit Baby reading with Justine

  • Why connecting with Spirit Baby before you’re pregnant is so important

  • Connecting with your Spirit Baby after pregnancy loss or still birth

  • Workshop info - September 23rd, 2023 - 10am PT/1pm ET includes a 2 hour group event PLUS a private reading with Justine

I always love talking with Justine because she brings so much hope and clarity to the fertility journey. We know that dealing with fertility issues is so so so hard on the body, mind, and soul - and Spirit Babies can be an amazing way to start to release some of the heaviness and bring a deeper perspective to your journey - going beyond the body and into spirit.

Fertility & Perimenopause with Jennifer Redmond

Fertility & Perimenopause with Jennifer Redmond

In today’s episode, my guest Jennifer Redmond and I talk about 2 things that no one loves talking about - perimenopause and fertility & how these two things interact. 

This is an important topic - for all women - for those that haven’t entered peri-menopause yet, for those TTC, and for those that will be a new mom in their early/mid forties. 

There is a ton of valuable information and insights in this episode. So definitely take a listen, even if you think it doesn’t apply to you.

Jennifer Redmond empowers women to take a 360-degree view of their wellness and helps them implement customized dietary and lifestyle changes to boost fertility or manage (peri)menopause. A fertility and hormonal health expert, she is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach and graduate of the Women’s Functional and Integrative Medicine Professional Training Program. Formerly, as the co-founder and editor-in-chief of FertilityAuthority, and the Director of Communications for RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association she has literally written and edited thousands of articles on fertility and women’s hormonal health. Jennifer is also the Board President of Resolve New England, where she leads a Childfree after Infertility Support Group.

What we cover in this episode:

  • Why we should be talking about perimenopause and fertility

  • What are the signs and symptoms of perimenopause

  • Jennifer’s nutritional tips for hormonal health - for supporting fertility & perimenopause

  • Being a mother to young children while going through perimenopause and how it’s different

  • The mental/emotional effects of hormonal change

  • Why we shouldn’t fear perimenopause and instead notice it’s subtle changes

  • How to support yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally through hormonal shifts

I really enjoyed recording this episode with Jennifer. Her wealth of knowledge and experience with hormonal health is so deep and her positive and warm energy made this somewhat taboo topic easy to talk about! 

If this episode spoke to you - I hope that you will check out what Jennifer has to offer for hormonal health support - for fertility and perimenopause! Also remember that a consistent nurturing yoga practice can help to balance hormones and support your fertility and any transitions you may be going through.

Tales of IVF Abroad with Jen Edmonds

Tales of IVF Abroad with Jen Edmonds

IVF is overwhelming, and doing fertility treatments abroad adds a whole new layer of intricacies and stress! More and more people are either travelling overseas to do treatment, or for others, they happen to find themselves living in a different country and then choose to do fertility treatment. 

There are new languages and cultures to navigate, miscommunications, and isolation to deal with.

I did my fertility treatment in Germany as a North America and my special guest - Jen Edmonds did her treatments in Thailand and Dubai as an Australian!

Jen is a fellow fertility yoga teacher and supporter and space holder of those on their fertility journeys. Her story is full of rich insight on doing fertility treatment away from home. Originally a pilates teacher, her IVF journey led her to fertility yoga - first as a student, then as a practitioner and she has a wonderful online yoga studio where she connects with people all over the world.

And so today, Jen is going to take us on the roller coaster ride of her fertility experiences in Thailand, Sydney, and Dubai. For those that find yourself in this situation - I hope you will find some wisdom and comradery in our discussion!

We talked about:

+ Doing IVF in a different culture

+ Navigating language barriers and miscommunications

+ Laughable moments (now! Not then)

+ Advice for those doing IVF away from their homeland

+ The costs of doing IVF in different countries

+ How to support yourself when doing IVF aboad

We had a great time recording this episode and Jen’s insight and openness is what made this

conversation so powerful. We hope you love listening to it!

Spirit Babies with Justine Cohen

Spirit Babies with Justine Cohen

Taking care of your spiritual and energetic health is an important piece of the fertility puzzle. While trying to conceive, some tend to focus most of their energy on the physical body. Yet when we start to begin our fertility path, many questions start to arise that the tangible and physical can’t explain.

Spirit Babies are an amazing way to connect with your future child and to bring some peace and understanding to the journey. A way to feel less isolated and alone as you do all that you can to bring your baby earthside.

So you’re interested in spirit babies, but where to begin? Spirit babies are intriguing and more and more people who are trying to conceive are starting to seek guidance on how to connect with their spirit babies.

The best place to start is right here with this podcast!

Justine Cohen, the Spirit Baby Lady, is a spirit baby medium and womb healer. She provides personal one-on-one spirit baby readings, as well as workshops from coast to coast of the US. 

Every year, Justine and I offer an online Spring and Fall Spirit Baby and Fertility Yoga Workshop.

Join me and Justine as we dive into the realm of spirit babies and all they have to offer you on your fertility journey!

In this podcast we discuss a lot!

  • What are spirit babies?

  • Why I love spirit babies as a companion to the fertility journey

  • How to connect to your spirit baby

  • What happens with spirit babies after pregnancy loss or termination

  • What are the signs of spirit babies

  • How to know if you have a spirit baby

We had a great time recording this episode and Justine’s wise, warm, and positive energy is what made the conversation so enlightening. We know trying something new and unknown can be extremely intimidating (especially when you are trying so many things for your fertility!) but this is truly the time to embrace exploring fertility beyond the physical body. There is more to the story ;)

If your mind and heart is open to connecting with your spirit baby, then this is the perfect episode to tune into. Listen and don’t forget to share your thoughts with us on Instagram @fertilebodyyoga, leave a comment, and follow us!

    Endometriosis - a 27 year journey with Guest Heather Smidt

    Endometriosis - a 27 year journey with Guest Heather Smidt

    My first guest on the podcast is Heather Smidt of Wanderwell Acupunture. She is an acupuncturist, massage therapist, reiki master, cranial sacral therapist, and fertility expert.

    Heather is also an endowarrior and has extensively researched, treated herself and others with acupuncture, and an advocate for endometriosis awareness!

    This episode is for EVERYONE, no need to have endometriosis to gather valuable information. This could be especially helpful for those with unexplained infertility, multiple losses, or multiple failed IVF rounds.

    We talk about a lot in this episode - from what endo is (and isn't), what sorts of surgeries and diagnostic procedures are available, and of course - endo and fertility.

    Go see Heather for a Total Reset, or acupuncture of reproductive health!

    Increase Feminine Energy with Fertility Yoga

    Increase Feminine Energy with Fertility Yoga

    Fertility Treatment and people offering fertility support has recently become more and more widespread, available, and state of the art.

    Having different avenues to boosting fertility is excellent. But there’s no denying that having all that information can be a little… overwhelming. 

    We’re all different and that’s why one all-encompassing “perfect” fertility routine doesn’t exist. 

    That being said, there are some basic guidelines we can follow when we dive into the world of fertility and all the options out there.

    Supporting those who are trying to conceive holistically is what I’m all about here at Fertile Body Yoga. Especially when it comes to your energetic and subtle body!

    And so today, I begin to unpack feminine energy and why it’s so important to embrace during your fertility journey.

    • The energy of the western world & IVF
    • How feminine energy is fertile energy
    • How to cultivate more feminine energy in your life
    • What are the different feminine and masculine energies

    I had fun revisiting and bringing some life to this popular past blog post! I know that sometimes embracing the subtler sides of existence is seen to many as ‘out there’ or ‘too woo hoo’ - but really, we are constantly connecting with energy, why not be purposeful on the energy we put around us! Especially when we are trying to conceive and doing fertility treatment.

    If you’re feeling overwhelmed with all the things to do, then this is the perfect episode for you! Tune in, and don’t forget to share your thoughts with us on Instagram @fertilebodyyoga and don’t forget to follow or comment on this podcast!
