CLB 010 : JOLINDA JOHNSON - FERTILITY, SELF-LOVE & HONOURING YOUR BODY
Would you like to know how to figure out whether you are living in alignment with your beautiful purpose in the world?
Jolinda is a Fertility Coach helping her clients maximise their chances of conception through diet, lifestyle and mindset. She is is a certified health & life coach and prior to her work in this beautiful area, she worked as a teacher.
In this episode, Jolinda shares with us her journey from working as a teacher in the USA and Spain to discovering & showing up for her purpose, through the work she does today as a Fertility Coach.
So why the change?
Jolinda says she knew for quite some time that she was destined for something more, but she could not work out what that something more was. (A frustrating situation that I think many of us can relate to!).
"ANYONE WHO IS BEING CALLED TO SOMETHING MORE WOULD AGREE THAT ITS NOT PLEASANT BECAUSE YOU ARE REALLY BEING CALLED TO GIVE UP THE LIFE THAT YOU KNOW … AND GIVE YOUR FAITH TO SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN'T SEE YET” - Jolinda Johnson.
Finally, Jolinda received the clarity and through following this call, she was led to the extraordinary work she does in the world today, as a Fertility Coach.
This episode is perfect for anyone who is in a career where they feel pretty entrenched but know that it’s not truly in alignment with their purpose.
Jolinda also provides a beautiful, vulnerable and touching account of her own fertility journey, as well as plenty of incredible advice for all women when it comes fertility, self-love & honouring our body (& choices!).

Jolinda’s 4 practical tips for helping to find your purpose
The true power of makeup, clothes and self-care.
"the womb is… the seat of intuition."
“its so easy to focus on the one thing you don’t have… you can really cultivate joy when you focus on everything you currently have rather than what you are missing”
"its amazing what you will accept from other people when you are coming from a place of self hatred. You really cannot expect anyone to love you more than you love yourself.”
“the time leading up to conception can be a time of great anxiety stress frustration pain, if you want it to be, but it can also be a time of self discovery and a time of greater connection with your partner. A time of really heavy self care, devoting the time that you need to figure out how your body works, how to nourish your body and eating a fertility diet because that is the way to care for your body as a woman.”
“women who are confident in their purpose are always willing to help other women reach theirs”.
