Oova 101: How to Show Yourself Grace

Practicing grace is the process of making choices to interact with the world with acceptance and kindness. Practicing grace is about being mindful and forgiving. If you’re struggling with infertility, it’s vital to show yourself grace. This means treating yourself with kindness, and going easy on yourself. 


How can I show myself grace while navigating infertility?

Set boundaries

Tara Brandner, a nurse practitioner and fertility coach says, "Give yourself permission to say no to the event invitations, to hosting the holiday gathering, taking on extra tasks, and to anything that feels overwhelming to you. You are allowed to put your needs first."

Find support

"Now more than ever is the time to surround yourself with support and those who love and care for you," Brandner says. "When you find yourself triggered at an event, please know it is ok to step away, leave, and cry. You are never alone, there is a whole community here to support you."
