Infertility and the Road to Comedy

Lauren Bennett | October 18, 2018

Written by Meirav Z, guest blogger and creator of “Inconceivable” I never thought I’d one day talk so much about infertility.  And it would be about me.  And I definitely never would’ve guessed it could be funny. So first off, blogging isn’t easy for me. I’d much rather stand on a stage in front of lots of people with a bright spotlight on me.  Really. My name is Meirav (pronounced May-rahv).  I’ve experienced…

 

The Thyroid – Fertility Connection

Lauren Bennett | October 4, 2018

Written byAlyssa Hustedt, guest blogger Did you know that 1 in 8 women will experience a thyroid imbalance or disorder in their lifetime?  In addition to those diagnosed, there are many others who do not fit the medical criteria of thyroid disease but will feel the effects of poor thyroid function.  The thyroid gland influences almost every cell in your body and its hormones play a huge role in maintaining…

 

Paying Tribute to the NICU

Alexis DelChiaro | September 18, 2018

Written by Nadine Bubeck, guest blogger September is NICU Awareness Month. As I look at my thriving five-year-old first born, I can still vividly remember him arriving 6 weeks early after quite a rough pregnancy. He was born via C-section a perfect 4 pounds 11 ounces– my little doll. I thought I was going to break him, …but babies are resilient. I’m very thankful our NICU stay didn’t exceed 7 nights-…

 

An IVF Journey to Clayton

Lauren Bennett | August 31, 2018

Written by Anna Berry, guest blogger Growing up a family was something I always wanted. Pretty much my whole life I thought getting pregnant was such a simple thing. I mean that’s what you learn in school, TV, and movies. A man and a woman have unprotected sexual intercourse (or sometimes protected if you’re lucky ;)) and you’re pregnant. Boom! Easy peasy right!!!?? Nope, not for us anyway or the…

 

Our Rae of Sunshine

Lauren Bennett | August 21, 2018

Written by Kathleen Hedges, guest blogger If you asked me at age 5 what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would answer quickly and with such pride “a mom!” I grew up with that dream of motherhood forever in my mind. On January 3, 2014, I met the man of my dreams, we quickly decided on forever and both of us wanted a family so when we…

 

Baby B… Can You Hear Me?

Birkley Kuykendall | August 21, 2018

Written by Ashley Flanigan One of my biggest dreams was to be a mom. My life as a teacher, coach and aunt has been centered around children. But some things just don’t happen like you think. After about four years of trying to add a baby to our family, my husband Greg and I were starting to lose hope. We prayed and had faith that it would happen if it…

 

Hope for the Haps

Birkley Kuykendall | August 17, 2018

Written by Bethany Hapner Seven years ago my husband and I tied the knot and eventually as all couples do, we wanted to start a family. We waited a year into our marriage, because when we were first married my mother in law who had Alzheimer’s lived with us. Well, one year turned into two and eventually two turned into three, and so on. My husband is paralyzed from the…

 

We Share in Grief

Birkley Kuykendall | August 15, 2018

Written by Taylor Fixler March 27th 2015. We were going out to dinner to celebrate. We were celebrating for two reasons; we celebrate the 27th of every month to honor the day we met, and I was also expecting our first child. We were full of joy and love and were so at peace with our impending title of parents. My husband parked the car in the lot behind the…

 

Our Rainbows After Years of Storms

Birkley Kuykendall | August 13, 2018

Written by Tiffany Johnston Storms are often full of turmoil, darkness and in the worst cases can leave us grappling with immense loss. However, no matter the final toll of a storm; when the first ray of light breaks through the clouds, there is always a flash of hope and belief that we are headed towards a better and brighter tomorrow, in those moments we often look for a rainbow.…

 

The Long Journey to Luca

Birkley Kuykendall | August 6, 2018

Written by: Kimberly Shanahan After losing Reagan it was hard to think of anything else. There’s so much that goes through your head constantly. I wanted to focus on something else and was completely distraught with losing her and not having the child we had planned for. Having a baby was still in the cards and the plan was to try again as soon as possible. Getting pregnant with Reagan…
