Is Fertility Coaching Right For You?
Are you wondering what the heck a fertility coach is or does? There are many different kinds of fertility coaches, and I am blessed and fortunate that many have become dear friends. Each of us has a specific niche we serve and how we work with our clients. Some work on mindset, some work on […]

Is it Possible to Get Pregnant Naturally After Infertility Treatments?
“Stop thinking about it, and when you least expect it, it will happen.” How many times have you been told this about your troubles conceiving? How many people did you want to clock for saying it? Well, I’m about to say it, so brace yourself, my friends. Sometimes when you do stop thinking about getting […]
Why my heart is breaking for Chrissy Teigen today
One of the downsides of being a public figure when you share so much of your life is also sharing when super hard things happen. Sadly, as most of you have already heard, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend lost their baby halfway through the pregnancy last night. Teigen has been in the hospital due to […]
Don’t be ashamed because you want to make changes…..
What I realized over time, and through lots and lots of therapy, was that I had no reason to be ashamed for changing. After all, if we are not growing, we are dying, no? Being a former people pleaser, the fact that she called me out as having changed shook me because, until that moment, I thought that staying the same was the goal.
Mothers Day Sucks When You Are Infertile
I literally didn’t realize that it was mother’s day until somebody mentioned it yesterday. I think mother’s day is going to feel a little bit different this year, whether you’re a mother or not. I am a mother for those of you who don’t know that, but I remember when I wasn’t and how hard this day was. Now more than ever, it is so important to be doing what you need to do for your own mental health during this time. Basically, we’re living through a quarantine, your cycles have been canceled, you’ve been having trouble getting pregnant and now you have to deal with mother’s day on Sunday!
Guest Blog Post – Julie’s Experience & Struggles with Infertility
She debated sharing her own story with all of the posts circulating about Infertility Awareness Week, especially in light of having had a baby last week, but this is one I knew needed to be shared and that would encourage us all in our journey. Some might look at her and say, “But Julie, […]
Find Your Own Dr. C! Why It Is So Important to Find “The Doctor”…
I am talking about “The One”. I am talking about finding the doctor that you know in your gut is the one who will bring you that baby. Since you can’t make said baby the old fashioned way, that doctor is the next best thing. You need to search for the perfect match the same way you searched for your partner.
The pain of Infertility never goes away….
I have been marinating on this post for weeks. I want to be honest with you, but at the same time I don’t want you to worry about your future past your journey. Ultimately I know that there are a lot of you out there that need to hear this so if I can […]
Not only did the infertility drugs make me crazy the whole situation made me so depressed. There are so many emotions tied up in whether or not you can procreate. No one ever tells you when you are a little girl, that when you are dreaming of that family and white picket fence that it may not be as easy as just wanting it. That it will take a lot of work to get there.
Are you happy?
I’m going slightly off topic but stay with me, I’m going to bring it back full circle. So I was listening to a podcast today – I listen to a lot of podcasts but this one hit me hard. The topic was on getting healthy for the sake of loving your body not reaching […]
How to find the best infertility doctors
When I felt like the doctors I was working with were not open minded I asked around and researched as much as I could. I eventually found a clinic that was willing to try some atypical things. It wasn’t the big NYC clinics that I found multiple successes at it was the smaller, almost unheard of clinic in southern NJ. I was lucky enough to find multiple doctors at this clinic who actually listened to me and were willing to try and think out of the box.
Will infertility treatments cause me to gain weight?
One of the things I get asked a lot, which was also a concern of mine, was gaining weight from the infertility meds. Now you know I’m always straight with you and to answer your question yes, you will gain some weight BUT it is mostly water weight. WHAT???? Stay calm and listen…. […]
My best tips for getting through the holidays while going through Infertility
I know it may not seem like the holidays were ever hard for me but, I promise you it wasn’t always this way. Not only are you in a season of Infertility but also in a season that promotes jolly, happy, present giving family holiday card receiving. Not a good mixture when you are on a roller coaster of hormones, hope and sometimes disappointment.
Find your Tribe!
Going through the infertility journey is hard – very hard and surrounding yourself with the right kind of people is essential! There may be times that you want to pull away and a true friend will understand this and give you the space you need. It is perfectly normal to feel sad when your BFF gets pregnant after her first try while you have been trying for so much longer. A true loving and supportive friend will understand.
The Costs of Infertility Treatments….
Let’s talk about the insane amount of money we need to slap down for infertility treatments. Many of us who have to go through infertility do not have health insurance that covers treatment and that just sucks. Even worse than not having coverage is not knowing you have coverage!
Mother’s Day is NOT a Real Holiday!

What it feels like to have a miscarriage after fertility treatments
When you are told it is not a good pregnancy you can’t help but thinking, what did I do wrong? Why isn’t this working? Why does GOD hate me? I spent all this money how could this be? I mean, there’s a million things that are going to go through your mind and a million things your body is going to go through at the same time.
