The Fertile Partner

by

Let’s talk about the unsung heroes of the fertility journey: the fertile partners. Those people that could reproduce without assistance. Those people who pass all the tests and have stellar reproductive systems. Those people who could be holding a baby if they were partnered with someone else. If you think about it, they have one […]

What Are My Options For IVF Financing & IVF Loans?

Mindset Matters

by

A couple years ago, my school district’s yearlong motto was “mindset matters: dream big.” For a teacher, mindset is beyond important, especially on those days when your students are squirrelly. But, really, that little motto is relevant to every aspect of our lives. Perception and perspective have a huge influence on how we feel about […]

Why Fertile Hope Yoga is Your Secret Weapon Against Infertility

by

It’s no secret that many different organ systems in our bodies work in conjunction to support reproduction. We’ve got hormones (endocrine system), reproductive organs, immune or lymphatic system, circulatory, muscular, respiratory, and so on.  Even seemingly unrelated body systems are connected, with all ten body systems playing their role. Our bodies are a finely tuned […]

Because Conception and Pregnancy Aren’t Easy

by

Social media, cell phones, tablets, online ordering. So many parts of our society contribute to the “want it now” mentality. For some reason, that philosophy seems to apply to conception and pregnancy. That instant gratification mindset is becoming ingrained. When we want something, it’s at our fingertips, whether it be that cute shirt at Target, […]

Scrambled Eggs Seasoned With Holy Water

by

It’s hard to be a competitive person, and be subpar egg creator.  But that’s what I am.  I am basically a dilapidated hen.  You can give me all the stim drugs and I will make follicles like nobody’s business, but I won’t make enough eggs for even a small omelet.  I usually make 1 extra […]
