My Pregnancy Gave Me Cancer

Lauren Bennett | November 21, 2019

Written by Michelle Velez, Guest Blogger Hi my name is Michelle Velez and I want to share my story of how my pregnancy gave me cancer. What happened to me is very rare – one in 40,000 pregnancies – but what caused it is a lot more common and it bothers me that most people have never heard of it. I’m a wife, mother of two, and local news anchor…

 

Our Rainbow Baby; A True Miracle

Lauren Bennett | November 13, 2019

Written by Vishakha Deora, of Teekri.com, Guest Blogger I wear my rainbow-colored Teekri ring for a reason. It’s a symbol of strength and an ode to the baby we lost, and the amazing one we gained. When we first found out we were pregnant, it completely took us by surprise.  We had talked about starting a family but didn’t think it would happen so fast.  However, we embraced the news…

 

Infertility to IVF Success

Lauren Bennett | November 8, 2019

Written by Monique Farook, Guest Blogger My name is Monique. I am a stay at home mom & wife. My husband and I were married for two years before we sought the help of a reproductive endocrinologist.

Cherished Embryos

Lauren Bennett | September 24, 2019

Written by Katie Aist, Guest Blogger Privilege. Honor. Gift. These are the words that will always accompany my small painting business, Cherished Embryos. About a year ago, while selling my original paintings to raise money for the adoption of our daughter, a friend came to me with a very special request. Her journey to motherhood, like so many who walk through infertility, was long and difficult, but resulted in two beautiful…

 

To the Mama who Miscarried

Lauren Bennett | September 14, 2019

Written by Jeanette Opheim, Guest Blogger Stories of pregnancy loss, infertility, and the pursuit of parenthood are as complex and as diverse as snowflakes; no two are the same. My story is a simple one; it is not the most tragic or the most compelling, but it is my story and I am grateful for the opportunity to share it. There is a sisterhood in the struggle to conceive and…

 

Storm to Rainbow

Lauren Bennett | August 22, 2019

Written by Guest Blogger, Melisa Ellena After years and years of trying to get pregnant, my husband David and I were finally thrilled to say, “We’re having a baby!” All of those infertility treatments, clomid, letrozole, inseminations, mini stimulation cycles, IVF, you name it, I went through it. Finally, I could put these treatments to rest. I can still remember the morning of my egg retrieval, I could barely put…

 

No Hard Feelings

Lauren Bennett | August 21, 2019

Written by Lisa Paesano, Guest Blogger Most women probably can’t remember the exact moment that they decided they wanted to be a mother, but I actually can. The majority of women I know have ALWAYS wanted to have a child one day. Me? Not so much. Babies were cute, but kids were kind of loud and always had ice cream on their faces, so I wasn’t sure. However, the first…

 

Worth the Process

Lauren Bennett | August 20, 2019

Written by Jessica Roose, Guest Blogger I always wanted to have kids. And I think part of me always knew that I would have a hard time having them. I can remember one time after I was married I met with a friend for coffee. I had just accepted a job that would take me from where I grew up in Arizona, all the way to North Dakota! We were…

 

Be Brave

Lauren Bennett | August 18, 2019

Written by Kristin Pierce, Guest Blogger My husband and I have always known we wanted to have a family. I remember our first Christmas together, when a family member asked “So when are you all going to start a family?” I remembered looking forward to that time with eager anticipation, but also realizing that maybe our family and it’s growth wouldn’t be easy. I had no idea the journey God…
