A Note from Bamik…
Where did it all begin?
Healthy Mama is truly dear to my heart. As with many stories, it all began many years ago when the internal clock was ticking and every part of my being knew that I wanted to become a mother. I went to the doctor for a check up to make sure everything was OK, ready for Nathan and I to only begin thinking about conceiving.
There was a new test available to determine how likely you are to conceive based on your fertility. To be honest, now that I think back, I’m not even sure how reliable the test was or what they were even testing. I’m sure a quick Google expedition could enlighten me….but I digress.
EDIT NOTE: The test determines your level of Anti-Müllerian hormone which doesn’t show very good accuracy in present tests.
The point for me was probably more psychological rather than physical but both equally important. The test came back and the result was devastating. A score of 12 to 24 was average and a score of 25 and above was very fertile.
I scored 4.
A pointless and meaningless number to me then and now. All I knew was that it meant that according to science, on that particular day, I was very unlikely to conceive naturally.
My partner, for some reason, was never worried about this as he knew deep down that we would become parents. His blasé attitude at the time was disconcerting, but turns out, he was completely on the mark!
Nathan and I attended a divine detox and retreat in SavuSavu Fiji in October 2011 and we conceived almost immediately. And by immediately, I mean, we got home end of October and we found out we were 5 weeks pregnant in the first week of December! What an incredible Christmas gift we are so grateful for. In fact, jokingly, everyone at the detox said, ‘be careful’, you may become pregnant here 🙂
The detox consisted of several days of limited solid nutrition and mainly juices, broths, essential fatty acids, daily mind, body, nutritional & scientific education together with as many or as few colonics as you can handle.
Conception was probably a combination of things including the nutrition, colonics, education and more importantly, I let go. Nathan encouraged me to let the ‘test results’ go. We would simply try for a year or so and then we could give all the fertility concepts some thought then. By letting go, I think I allowed little Oreon into our lives.
So this is our story of how parenting, connecting and learning came into our lives. We have learned so much along the way and have connected with some of the most incredible people in the world on this journey which is how and why we bring to you Healthy Mama Magazine. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do creating it for you.
With a whole lotta love from us to you…x ❤
