Pregnant at 44 after Bowen Therapy

She told me she was a massage therapist and practiced Bowen Therapy also.

We started talking more about other things and TTC [trying to conceive] came up, along with my age.

She said she had three other clients who got pregnant after therapy with her, when nothing else was working.

So yesterday I finally was able to get a treatment, and she told me that those three clients are all 44 years old!

One lady is due next week, another in April, and I'm not sure about the other one. That gives me hope.

She told me that she thought one of my issues is fear, probably fear of not having another baby.

She said fear can be a huge block in the body, and could very well be keeping me from getting pregnant, so I need to get rid of this fear.

A lot of this was pretty new age-y, but I'm open to just about anything these days!

She thinks I will be pregnant within three months.

I'm going to see her every other week, and the massage felt soooo good. I was really relaxed afterwards.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
