What is better than meditation while going through infertility or IVF?
We are back for another fertility expert interview series with my lovely friend Robyn Birkin. We met online a couple of years ago and bonded over our love of science backed mind-body techniques that stop you going back shit crazy while trying to conceive!
In today’s episode Robyn shares her own journey through IUIs, IVF and miscarriage. Her experiences of mediating with monks and what happened on a surfing trip in Bail that changed everything.
We then dive into:
- How meditation has been put on a pedestal as a fix all
- Why meditation can actually make people feel worse if they are struggling with chronic anxiety or trauma
- What is better than meditation when you’re going through infertility or IVF

“When infertility, loss and trying to conceive is so incredibly difficult – I wanted to create something that *wasn’t* about improving fertility, or getting pregnant faster or supplements or detective work – none of that.
Something that just focused on YOU. Because you matter. Your mental health matters. And if TTC is breaking you apart… or even if it just has really hard moments, you deserve to feel heard, supported and validated.
You deserve to invest your time and energy into yourself.
You are worthy. Beautiful, incredible and amazing you. Of joy. Of happiness. Of support. Of self-kindness. Of having human experiences. Of not feeling like you need to be perfect allllll the time.
All of it. So I’ve created an event and you are invited. I am…. still shocked, surprised, grateful and overjoyed that so many incredible colleagues have said YES to you as well, and are joining me for the Feel Better Weekend.
Join us from 18 – 20 February for this FREE event where we’ll share our best resources, tips and actionable steps to help you feel calmer, more connected and more empowered as you navigate infertility, loss and trying to conceive.” – Robyn

I’ll be sharing how to stay calm during the 2 week wait using Emotional Freedom Technique.
For some people, having a baby is easy, but for others, like Robyn, it’s a long and tough rollercoaster. Her journey starts off just like most of us. She thought having a baby would take no time at all. A year later, she found herself at the fertility clinic, and several ovulation inductions, IUI’s, IVF cycles, OHSS and a miscarriage later, finally conceived.
Now, as a certified Life Coach and Mind Body Practitioner, she is passionate about helping you not only survive the process, but thrive! Her superpower? Helping type A women find calm, confidence and happiness in their TTC journey and feel like warriors. She is a little woo woo. A lot straight shooter and has never turned down a bowl of mashed potato and if you love Salt n Pepa, well… you’re soul sisters.
In The Fertility Warriors podcast, She interviews other fertility warriors, and shares advice and tips on how to conceive, how to navigate the world of fertility treatments and how to be your best and healthiest self. Robyn Birkin is the founder of the Mind Body Fertility Reset – a membership community for women+ trying to conceive to help them conquer stress and fuel their fertility through emotional wellbeing, mindfulness and brain-based strategies.
