WILL 2022 BE YOUR YEAR?
The Modern Warrior International Magazine
January 01, 2022
When you’re struggling with infertility, a new year is so much more than setting goals to lose weight, eat better or exercise every day. It’s often a time you pray hard that this will be the year you finally welcome a baby into the world.

In my latest article for Modern Warrior Magazine, I share rituals to help you to protect your mental health and wellbeing as you continue to navigate through infertility. Doing these rituals will ensure 2022 starts in the best way possible.

FROM TRAUMA TO HOPE
The Modern Warrior International Magazine
December 01, 2021
We can be forgiven for believing that the trauma associated with infertility, miscarriage and stillbirth ends the minute a healthy baby is born. But this often isn’t the case. The wounds run so much deeper. In this article, I share the guilt and shame I experienced after I gave birth to my beautiful daughter.

WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES
The Modern Warrior International Magazine
October 01, 2021
'Walk A Mile In My Shoes' discusses seven things we can say to someone who has experienced a miscarriage. These words communicate our support without adding to the pain and despair they may already be feeling. I believe it is not until we have walked a mile in someone else's shoes that we can truly understand their pain and suffering. For me, that lesson was harshly reinforced during the many years I dealt with secondary infertility, loss and grief.

THE VULNERABLE PATH TO MOTHERHOOD
The Modern Warrior International Magazine
September 01, 2021
‘The Vulnerable Path To Motherhood' discusses the liberation that comes to us when we accept and reframe the vulnerability we feel in parenting as a strength, not a weakness. I’m undoubtedly at my most vulnerable as a mum when I see my children struggling. But I also now understand that we’re not supposed to take away our children’s pain. Instead walking alongside our children and supporting them through their journey allows them to grow through the toughest of times.

LIFE IS A JIGSAW PUZZLE
The Modern Warrior International Magazine
June 01, 2021
'Life is a Jigsaw Puzzle - Go Within to Find the Missing Pieces' discusses the need to look inside ourselves and connect with who we really are.

INFERTILITY SAVED MY LIFE: HEALING PCOS FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Morgan James Publishing
December 06, 2022
Infertility Saved My Life: Healing PCOS from the Inside Out exposes the raw teaching moments of Sarah Willoughby's journey to self-love through Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and secondary infertility.

​Within Infertility Saved My Life, Sarah Willoughby addresses the challenges and heartbreak she experienced while becoming a mum to three amazing children. She writes about her multiple miscarriages, as well as the trauma she endured, so that anyone still on their journey to parenthood can feel less alone in their loss and grief.

Sarah's story peaks in 2009, when she ended up in intensive care after a disastrous IVF cycle. Lying in her hospital bed, she promised herself that if she survived, she would embrace her fears and empower others to do the same. Seven months later, Sarah Willoughby left the corporate world, emigrated to Australia and fell pregnant naturally twice with her daughters.

​Infertility Saved My Life shares the wisdom and insight that enabled Sarah to complete her family and begin a heart-centered life and business. She includes practical exercises and tools to help balance the reader's mind, body and spirit and improve their chances of having a baby.
