The "So Now What?" Podcast

I am a Fertility Survivor.  The kind you enter into treatments hoping you will never be... childless.  After several rounds of IUI and IVF, at some of the leading Fertility Centers, I was told I was no longer a candidate for fertility treatment.  It left me asking myself...

So now what?

For the years that followed, I tried to put myself back together and tell myself I would be OK, but I wasn't.  I was shattered - I felt alone and failed by the whole process and especially, my body.  I yearned for others that felt the pain I felt and someone that could help me navigate a life without a child. 

I didn't find it, so I decide to create it.  

Fast forward to today. I am still childless, but my beliefs about my life have changed.  I decided that I can create meaning and purpose in my life even though I am not a mother.  I've learned to love myself and the body I felt failed me as a woman.

If you've been on this journey, hop on and join me as we create something we were not offered.  Let's create a sisterhood for the bravest women I know.  We brush ourselves off and don't let terms like: Failed, Unexplained, Miscarriage, Not-viable or Advanced Maternal Age define us anymore.

I see myself doing a lot more of that...

In last week's episode, we talked about what we have, maybe some of it is...

Hello, my beautiful people. I am recording today in the midst of moving boxes and bubble wrap and all kinds of things to prepare for our move.

 In Episode 25, we talked about clearing the clutter and how I went through all the closets and went through all the things in my life that I have that I'm just not using...

I feel so fabulous to be back here for Episode 26 with all of you because that marks exactly six months of me doing weekly podcasts, these last 26 weeks I have showed up for myself, for you. And for the community that is just really looking to learn how to deal differently and feel differently about an inability to have...
