Making A Miracle


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. My desire to have a child was burning inside of me and it quickly became my obsession. At the time of the first treatment in 2012, I was 29 years old and the…

 

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…

 

The Wait

Lauren Bennett | September 17, 2019

Written by AB, Guest Blogger The wait. The thing that surprised me most about my (ongoing) fertility journey was the waiting. Something I never expected, and at times it consumes me, and to be honest, makes me feel like I’m losing it. I got pregnant very unexpectedly in early 2018. I was away in Africa on a humanitarian mission when I figured out my period wasn’t just late because I…

 

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…

 

Why Us?

Lauren Bennett | August 13, 2019

Written by Guest Blogger, Ginny Helmer “Why Us?” Have you ever asked yourself this question? I will never forget sitting in my reproductive endocrinologist’s office, fearful  yet hopeful, when he told my husband and I our fertility odds: “All things considered…there is less than a 5% chance that you two will ever conceive naturally.” You can imagine that hearing those words being only 23-years-old and married just under 2 years,…
