Yesterday skied for the last time this season.

Not only for losing both skis but the height and distance traveled post-fall.

I got to her as soon as I could. Her brother brought her pole from a little higher up and sat next to her. I checked to see if she was hurt first, then helped put my little skier back together again.

In listening to her, I discovered that she was most upset because she had snow everywhere. In her goggles, neck, and helmet.

I handed her tissues to wipe the tears and the snot. Fiddled around her neck and wiped her goggles inside and out.

She worried she wouldn’t be able to see out of her goggles, so I dried them again, just to be sure. I sat with her until she was ready.

Only then did I help put her helmet back on, and her goggles. Skis on with some extra leaning. As soon as she clicked into the skis she was off tearing down the mountain again.

You’re riding along and there’s been a significant setback. Your upset. Really upset cause you had some momentum and were hopeful that it would work this time.

Instead, your hopes come crashing down, again. You feel you need to sit there for a moment and release what's coming up. Only after you regain your composure do you continue on the wild ride of trying to have a baby.

It’s moments like those where I sit there with you. it's not the time to dish out advice. It's a time to bear witness to the disappointment you feel. Ask if there is some way I can offer you comfort.

I’m absolutely not the person to turn to for any skiing advice.

We decided to have one of us riding in front to guide our way forward and one at the back to stop and assist.

Having fertility support is a little of both.

It’s being behind you so I can get to you sooner if I need to give you a hand. With a rider at the back able to get to you sooner if you’ve had a fall.

It gives you a sense of security and comfort. Knowing you have someone there to turn to while you're picking yourself up again.

As a mentor or guide at the front, I will also check in and make sure we are still on the right path for you. Give you some new tools for a smoother run. Or, introduce new techniques to continue improving your fertility and your journey.
