When my husband and I were struggling with fertility issues, it was overwhelming and stressful.
We felt very alone as no one in our family or friend group had struggled to have a child.
There were so many details to keep track of that it made trying to have a child a depressing experience full of work.
There were difficult moments of answering questions, dealing with pregnancy announcements, and getting unsolicited advice about how to “make it happen”.
It strained my marriage at times as we had different perspectives, experiences, and ways to cope.
Infertility was a roller coaster ride fueled by grief, loss, hormones, medications, and isolation.
After my infertility journey was over, I wanted to combine my personal experience with my professional experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist and Relationship Coach to help others.

Most couples spend between $20,000 to $100,000 by the time they are done with their infertility journey. Doctor bills. Lab invoices. Diagnostic procedures. Surgical procedures. Medication costs. IUI procedure. IVF procedure. Days spent out of work.
Feeling isolated and not understood by family and friends. Dreading holidays and celebrations where you have to be around people. Not to mention the cost of a divorce which is at least $15,000. My husband and I spent $26,250 on our fertility journey and our struggle strained both our marriage and our relationship with family and friends.
Let me tell you about “Myles and Janet”. When they started the program they were unable to really talk about their grief. They stopped going to social activities with friends and family. Myles protected his wife by being strong and not sharing his struggles. Janet felt like Myles didn’t care enough or didn’t get it because he seemed fine. Once they learned how to talk about the hard things, they felt more connected and understood one another better. They even divided all of the tasks related to the treatment process so they were sharing the burden. The plan Myles and Janet developed helped them feel more connected and work as a strong team.
