#11 Couple's Therapy!

Bumps Along the Way

18-07-2023 • 47分

This is one of the scariest episodes I have put live to date! But, it feels like a really important one, too.


Throughout this period, a lot of people have asked us how we are doing, and if all of this has had an impact on our relationship. We thought it was a fair question, and we decided to not try and explain the answer ourselves, but instead to seek out the help of a couple's therapist!


Together with Angelica Magana, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, we discuss:

  • Why couple's therapy isn't only for relationships that have broken down
  • The importance of getting third party support during infertility or trying to conceive
  • Understanding that we often have different coping mechanisms to handle situations like this
  • Why the women don't always need the guys to "fix it" ;)
  • How to identify each other's triggers
  • Knowing how to communicate when things get heated,
  • When it's appropriate to take a time out
  • How to deal with feelings of guilt and self blame
  • And how to keep the fun and spark in your relationship!


As always, I walked away from this conversation with a tonne of insight. I only hope it serves as a reminder to any couples who may be struggling that whatever you're going through is normal, and it's okay. It's part of a challenging road that we all need to learn to navigate, often on our own.


You've got this!
