Biography [ click me ]

Lisa Marsh had a romantic and relaxed view of love, marriage and motherhood when she began trying to conceive a year after her wedding in 1996.  When she lost her first pregnancy to miscarriage, it was the beginning of a 7-year period of trials and tribulations as she and her husband experienced recurrent miscarriage, secondary infertility, IVF and the natural conception and birth of their two children. Lisa’s experience as a life coach and miscarriage support volunteer led her to advocate fertility health awareness, developing a specialty in fertility coaching and blogging as Your Great Life.

“When people hear the word fertility, they automatically think of conception and pregnancy. However, if you think about the onset of puberty and menstruation starting from about age 10, to menopause in your late 40’s or early 50’s, your fertile period encompasses approximately 40 years. Fertility affects women in countless ways, including health, body image, self-esteem, how we feel about our femininity and sexuality, our relationships, our social lives and our plans for creating a family.”

Lisa believes that “quality support is essential in our lives, whether from professional or personal sources, now more than ever. Women have complex, multi-faceted lives and can understandably feel depleted at times, physically, mentally and/or emotionally. Ultimately, you want to have a baby and to be a mother, but life has to be lived in the meantime, so my aim is to get you there in as balanced and efficiently a way as possible. We are after creating a full and rich life for you on your path to becoming, and in being, a mother, with greater self-awareness and self-belief, better decision-making skills and healthier relationships.”
