April Joy Alexander
Passionate About Helping Others
How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a fertility and pregnancy health coach?
To answer this question, it's probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting "compelling story," that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to discover their inner strength and know that they are enough and worthy of abundance. That defining moment in my life happened in 2018.
A couple years earlier, May 21, 2016 to be exact, our 16-month-old daughter got down out of our bed, sat down and fell over backwards and wasn't getting up. She appeared to be having a seizure and starting to turn blue in the face. I began to breathe for her without hesitation my husband got our oldest daughter got in the pickup and hurried to the hospital. That day she ended up being airlifted to a children's hospital an hour away and had a total of five seizures. The next day the doctors recommended we put her on anti-seizure medication.
As a professional massage therapist and married to a biodynamic, organic farmer, I had years of experience knowing the impact pharmaceuticals have on the body and mind. I gave up the Standard American Diet (SAD) way of eating in 2009 and had lost 65 pounds in three months and changed my life. I was adamant that they NOT put her on anti-seizure meds.
I searched high and low to solve my daughter’s seizures - while I was pregnant with our third child. I fought to keep my sanity together to keep both her and my unborn child healthy and safe. She would end up having one seizure every five to six weeks in the following twelve months.
My husband and I are scriptural people and while at the children's hospital, we had 25+ people on a call. I prayed: "God, she's yours. Let us be seizure free and figure this out." It took me a whole year - hair samples revealed she was low on a few essential vitamins -- and now she's been seizure free. I know in my heart and soul it all comes down to what you stick into your mouth and brain.
At one point, the pressure and burnout got the better of me: my thoughts turned to suicide. I had the thought: either you leave behind a husband and three kids (third child was born December 2016) - or you get it together and figure it out.
Then, February 2018 happened. We're just coming out of this traumatic time, I'm pregnant with what would have been our fourth child
- and I miscarry.
Devastated, I turned to the Bible for comfort. And when I turned to 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 - I read: "you were comforted by God and you are supposed to comfort others."
It's like my brain took me to my past: at some level, the pain I experienced was no different than what I endured as a kid: neglected by parents who didn't know better than to throw me to the side to focus on their son, who suffered from a debilitating disease.
Molested at six and quiet and shy, I was classified as a special education student, where I stayed until I was a junior in high school and decided I'd had enough, I was tired of being made fun of and decided to graduate halfway through my senior year. Later I also dealt with abusive relationships, controlling men; mental, physical and sexual abuse.
My mind began to race:
How could this happen to me? I was a licensed massage therapist for 14 years. I have helped many women learn how to take care of themselves. I know how to work with the body and mind they are key to oneself as a person. Where did I go wrong and how do I turn this around?"
I Began to study the brain and I have worked on controlling my mind and the thoughts I was having. I was also very aware of what goes into my mind and into my mouth that were creating my environments.
I cleaned up my past and started teaching other women how they can do the same: I watched their joy, peace, happiness, and inner strength return. I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other women, women who've also been through traumatic events breakthrough to reclaim and own their self-worth and create a positive mindset to be more successful in all areas of their life.
Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I lived my dream of working from home and earning an income while I travel with my online business;. I have created "Your Vision Birth™", Where we encourage and empower women to understand, know and trust the process of pregnancy and birth.
Who are your clients?
I work with women who are looking to get pregnant or already pregnant. I also help women and families who are looking for a more enjoyable pregnancy and birth experience.
I also work professionally with:
• Women Entrepreneurs
• Health and Wellness Consultants
• Health Coaches
• Pregnancy Coaches
• Holistic Practitioners
• Energy Workers
• Massage Therapist
What makes you different from other “pregnancy health coaches"?
Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other “business coach-y” things, you have me as a health expert and consultant. I work on the inner and outer principles for success and look at your mind and health from an organic and spiritual perspective. What that means to you is that you get a compassionate been there done that health and mindset coach. I'm also very spiritual, and I don't pretend to hide it either. Because I’m passionate, you’ll always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from me.
I’m concerned with how to get you free from the health challenge you are experiencing. You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. How to get rid of resistance FAST so you can start getting results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!)
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The Your Vision Birth process, workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and serious about growth and learning to break free from infertility. This means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I am not worthy.” STOP IT! They were created for you to put systems in place. You will gain confidence, self-love and a new outlook on life. You were created for a purpose.
Please know I’m selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)
It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another.
Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on the Your Vision Birth program assignments and the BIG picture.
When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.) Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who constantly make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We'll probably just not work well together, and I wouldn't want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
What exactly is Your Vision Birth™ and what does it include?
Your Vision Birth begins with with getting in touch with who you are. Understanding your worth, where true love really comes from. Getting in touch with the past, then releasing it to be free from it.
Here’s what the System gets you to do:
Your Vision Birth Journey
This is a process to look back threw your life to see how the choices about health have effected you. After we are done with past health. Next we will rewrite what you want in your health. Not just physical, but emotionally and spiritually.
2. Health assessment
Here we will look deep into your health. If you choose to, I work with a lab to get a full health profile on what your body is lacking and even be overloaded with a simple hair test. Because with your health we cant be guessing we must test. Saving time and money.
3. 100% Personal responsibility
Label reading and start diving into ingredients. Learning habits and patterns around food.
Do you know that God/universe loves you? Do you? Together I will help you to learn to love yourself. The more you love yourself, the more love you can give others.
5. Pregnancy Meditation.
Here we will cover how to meditate. Why we would want to meditate. And a simple guided meditation that we will together.
6. Food Journaling.
This will be tracking what you eat. I know this doesn't sound fun but it is a key to understanding that you are what you eat.
7. Thought Journaling.
Always more than one way to journal. Here I will help you and your brain to journal in a whole new format. This will help find patterns and how and what you eat.
8. Setting your Intentions
Here we will set our intentions for this program. We will make this a process of being clear on what we will work on. This is different than making goals. Goals are what we want to attain. Intentions are the feeling behind the goal.
9. Food Intuition
Emotions and feelings towards food. Learning how get in touch with your intuition around food. I will help you get in touch with the guidance that has always been there.
10. Let's celebrate.
You are enough and worthy of everything you want and desire.
