My Miscarriage Story: In Honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month

Friday, October 21, 2016
It seems that the heart is bigger than the womb, by my reckoning. The womb starts out smaller than the heart at least, flat and triangular when it’s empty. I believe most people think of it as a large hollow thing, like a chamber, which will surround a baby like a bubble or a balloon. But the womb is dark and sticky and its contractions on itself are what staunch our bleeding. It’s more diminuitive than a pear or a lemon even and has much less volume. The heart is larger than t Read more

I met with another woman who had struggled with infertility, and she recommended for me to read The Infertility Cure. I was so moved by the book and its' contents that I s Read more

The Essence of Motherhood: May We Honor All Women on Mother's Day

Friday, May 08, 2015
"The essence of motherhood is not restricted to women who have given birth; it is a principle inherent in both women and men. It is an attitude of the mind. It is love -- and that love is the very breath of life. No one would say, 'I will breathe only when I am with my family and friends; I won't breathe in front of my enemies.' Similarly, for those in whom motherhood has awakened, love and compassion for everyone are as much a part of their being as breathing.” ~ Mat Read more

Testimonial: Fertility Success Times Two!

Sunday, January 11, 2015
When I first went to see Jane in 2008, I was 28 and had been trying to get pregnant for four years. My husband and I were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We tried IUI a couple of times but didn’t get much further than that before I noticed my confidence and attitude start to plummet.
