Alanis Morissette on Pregnancy at 45

CelebNHealth247.com reports that Alanis Morissette, the woman who does everything with grace was deliberate in her movements and careful with her words while speaking to Self.

Alanis Morissette who already has two children with her husband, Mario “Souleye” Treadway, are expecting no. 3 to join their eight-year-old son, Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway, and a daughter just on the cusp of turning three, Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway.

Alanis openly spoke on how she was afraid after hearing that 10 to 20 percent of pregnancies end in a miscarriage according to the Mayo Clinic.

She expanded on her feelings about her pregnancy losses:

I […] felt so much grief and fear. I chased and prayed for pregnancy and learned so much about my body and biochemistry and immunity and gynecology through the process. It was a torturous learning and loss-filled and persevering process.

Being somewhat of a planner, Alanis was determined to take the reins.

I had done tentacles of investigation on everything, from hormones to physicality, every rabbit hole one could go down to chase answers. I have different doctors who laugh at the thickness of my files. So, for me, I’ve tried every different version from heavily self-medicating, to formal allopathic medications, to now.

Alanis said:

I think there are certain archetypal creatures—sounds like you’re one of them—who are really research-based and just want to be as informed as possible. I’m a systems thinker, I love leadership, I love collaboration, I love every role in a system being at the top of their game. And it used to be really uncool to be an over-communicator, and now it is a boon for people and they are so appreciative with the level of accountability and the speed with which feedback is given, or answers, or responsivity. So now what people used to shame is something that people appreciate, which is the best part of evolution I guess.

She went on to explain it is about understanding your body.

Morissette said:

When I […] chased my health in a different way, from multiple angles—[including, among other things] extensive consistent blood work monitoring to trauma recovery work to multiple doctor and midwife appointments to many tests and surgeries and investigations, things shifted.

Bottom line, Pregnancy is a big f-cking deal for a woman.
