Welcome to One Way or A Mother LLC, where you will receive support around your journey to motherhood.
Does it seem the more you push your way towards your baby, the less success you experience? Even though you have achieved amazing results in your life, this process seems to operate under a different set of rules.
You may have noticed…
You’ve lost your sense of humor
You’re frustrated and irritated a lot of the time
You feel drained most of the day
You’re losing hope of ever becoming a mom (or a mom to more than one child)
Everywhere else in your life you’ve worked hard to get to your level of success, and yet this baby eludes you. The same skills that helped you achieve your career goals do not apply here, which is incredibly frustrating and confusing.
Learning to find your inner happiness along the road to your baby may feel like the last thing on your “to do” list, yet that is a key to my clients becoming moms. Know that the same drive and motivation that work in other areas of your life can now be shifted in a harmonious new direction. You don’t have to change who you are at your core. You can use your same strengths but in a new light.
Believe Your Baby is on it's Way to You
This journey to your child is such a complex thing. It is so much more than physical. It is emotional, mental, and spiritual. It involves your finances, your employment, your relationships, and your self-esteem. The journey can be filled with great joy and sometimes loss. Why go through such a journey without a guide?
Fortunately, there is a more conscious, fun and peaceful way to motherhood. Think of me as your Conception Concierge. Together we will navigate the myriad of choices from holistic fertility techniques to medical interventions to adoption. My goal is to make this journey a lot easier, faster, and far less stressful. Whether you have just started the journey or are down the path, we will start where you are and chart a path to success.

Hi, I’m Jenilyn Gilbert, LCSW, mother, author, yoga teacher, and fertility and adoption coach at One Way or A Mother. Since 1999, I have worked in the fields of fertility and adoption and have helped hundreds of women become mothers. Over 90% of my clients go on to conceive and deliver healthy babies.

I offer three different packages, where we continue to work together until you get the results you are looking for. The programs are the "Transform Your Fertility" Program, the "Revamp Your Fertility" Program and the "Tune-up Your Fertility" Program.
I've written a report called "Four Secrets to Enhancing Your Fertility." These are the approaches I use with all my clients. It will include tips on preparing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies for pregnancy. Go to the box to the right to sign up.

If you’ve been struggling to conceive, Jenilyn Gilbert is the woman for you! Jenilyn was recommended by a friend and from the first time I heard her sweet, caring voice I knew she was going to be a part of my journey. I had been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, working with doctors for months with no results and getting extremely frustrated. It’s then I decided to try a fertility coach...
“You will all be mothers,” Jenilyn told us, a group of battle fatigued infertile woman, “How you get there might not be the way you imagined it, but you will be mothers.” She said it with such certainty and authority. At the time I had been battling infertility for 6 years and I was extremely skeptical, almost angry that she would say something like that. How could be so sure? I guess I was angry because my hopes had been raised many times by multiple infertility “cures” and I was determined not to be bamboozled again by such claims...
The fertility journey was a tough road for me. I experienced over two years of fertility doctor visits, expensive meds, and endless frustration with “unexplained infertility”. In the end, the doc declared there was nothing more to be done.
This was when I turned to Jenilyn. What a kind and bright soul she is. She truly understands this crazy journey and guided me out of the dark hole...

Most people don’t have any idea that secondary infertility exists. When someone has a baby or a young child, the first thing others ask is, “When are you having another?” If the mother responds that they are struggling to have a second child, the typical response is, “Well, you got pregnant before, why would it be an issue? Maybe you just need to relax.” But, secondary infertility is a real thing, and it can be emotionally devastating...
My last blog was sent at Thanksgiving and I have missed keeping in touch with you. My computer stopped receiving the internet and now I'm back online. So Happy Hanukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New year everybody! At this time of year I think of all the new year's resolutions
A couple of weekends ago I attended a yoga therapy conference which blended my two professions of social work and yoga beautifully. I am going to share about the talk given by Richard Miller, the creator of irest, a form of yoga nidra or yogic sleep. This was truly a fascinating
I want to start out by saying that I got permission to share the following email sent to me on March 21st. This past client was responding to an email I sent to her about my upcoming spring workshop. (Interestingly, she responded on the first day of spring).
Thanks for thinking of me and
I just attended a workshop last week called, The Experience of Loss in Infertility and Reproductive Trauma by Dr. Fox and Dr. Stein. The talk began with a focus on the multiple losses a woman experiences when she’s trying to conceive. I think that anyone who is in the middle of trying or has
Did you know that it takes 8 hours for the body to calm down after 5 minutes of a stressful situation? I just learned this in a summit about healing migraines and I was floored by the amount of time it takes to re-set the body. Makes you think about having some tools in your back pocket to quickly
One thing I wish I had spent more time doing is preparing for parenting. I was so consumed with trying to create my family that I didn’t spend a lot of time learning about how to parent the baby. I will say, I did read a lot about sleep as that was the most concerning part about
I was part of a group book discussion a couple of weeks ago and I was so inspired by the six happiness tools mentioned in the book that I thought I would share them with you today. The book is called What Happy People Know: How the New Science of Happiness Can Change Your Life for
Whether you are trying to build your family through fertility treatments or adoption, Mother’s Day can be a hard day for some. Even if you are celebrating with one child and wishing to expand your family further, this day can remind you of your unmet dream. It can also be
I was just at a family gathering when one of my cousins could see the tired look on my face as I was chasing my 2 year old around the room. She asked me how I was and I said, “Tired.” She responded by saying, “That’s why you have your kids in your 20’s and not your
Last week I took myself offline, well not totally…but a lot more than I usually do. If you have been feeling on edge or like there isn’t enough time to finish everything in a day or even if you have been pushing yourself beyond your bedtime, I challenge you to take a week offline too.
I first learned about angels as a small child. My mother told me that I had two guardian angels who were there to protect me. I don’t recall a specific story upon learning about them, as I feel I have always known about them. They brought me great comfort as I grew
