How infertility helped me deal & heal from my childhood sexual abuse trauma with Emma Brodzinski

Updated: Dec 13, 2019

Today we have on the beautiful Emma who bravely and unselfishly shares her past childhood traumas of sexual and mental abuse.

Emma shares with us how her infertility shined a big spotlight on the fact she hadn’t dealt with her past childhood traumas of sexual and mental abuse and why she felt those past experiences were contributing to her infertility.

Emma decided to take hold of her life, and during her fertility treatments, she taught herself how to survive and thrive during the invasive procedures.
