I am Francoise

A fertility coach for women who've done everything they can to get pregnant

I am here to show you how you can stop trying so hard to get pregnant and conceive from a place of love, trust, and confidence instead.

How to surrender to the challenges that you face throughout your fertility journey, how to take THE BEST care of yourself in the process, and how to find back some joy in your life and your relationships along the way.

I am not afraid of the dark.

 

I've been through pregnancy loss, fertility treatment and periods of desperation myself.

 

I now teach other women how they can work with these hard times to create a true reservoir of resilience within themselves and transform their limiting beliefs and blockages from a place of softness. 

From conflict research to fertility empowerment

I started working with other women who were facing unwanted childlessnesss to share the tools I had picked up to deal with the stress of (in)fertility and to create a safe space where we could share about our experiences.

 

Inspired by the women I got to work with, I decided to give fertility treatment one more try in early 2020.

 

Our baby boy Benjamin was born in November that same year – a decade after I first started trying to get pregnant – and in 2022 I fell pregnant with a set a miracle twins: one IVF baby and one spontaneous pregnancy conceived in the same cycle.

As an award-winning political scientist and conflict researcher, I used to travel the world to study and advice on how communities can increase their resilience in the face of violent conflict and extremism.

 

But as my own fertility journey progressed along the way, I felt an increasing need to turn within. I wanted to embrace a softer, more feminine side of myself that I hoped would bring me more balance and joy in everyday life (and get me pregnant).

As I faced countless negative pregnancy tests, a devastating miscarriage and several years of fertility treatment, I realised I needed to learn how to surrender to everything that was happening to me.

My coaching approach

My work is a blend of the different healing modalities that I have picked up over the past decade: (mindfulness) meditation techniques, (tantric) embodiment practices, shamanic journeying and abdominal therapy.

 

Together, these techniques allow me to work with you in a trauma-informed manner on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
