Voy’s Story : Guilt, Spirit Babies and Peru

Voy’s Story : Guilt, Spirit Babies and Peru

We started our ‘journey’ 3 years ago, when I was almost 41. We had only been together about a year, and like most people who meet later in life, thought we’d better ‘get on with it.’The word ‘journey’ makes me cringe, as before this, to me a journey meant going somewhere exciting, with all the…

Emily’s story: Doing ok despite no baby!

Emily’s story: Doing ok despite no baby!

Do you ever read down to the bottom of a fertility post to check to see the outcome of the story, knowing that if there’s a baby at the end you just can’t bring yourself read on? Well, shortcut…No baby here! But seriously, unless it’s just me who’s left thinking I’m incredibly mean and evil…

Beth’s Story – Limbo, guilt, ectopic pregnancy and finally twins

Continuing our autumn theme sharing six very different positive outcomes following fertility struggles. Embrace fertility is very much about getting happy rather than getting pregnant so I will be sharing stories that include bumps and babies but that also include alternative happy beginnings, including adoption, childfree living and those still creating their families. I say…

She’s bloody done it!

She’s bloody done it!

When Jessica Hepburn first told me she was planning to swim the Channel I thought she had gone loopy. I love sea swimming but 30 minutes is my max followed by a hot shower and a hot chocolate even in the height of summer. Swimming the Channel with no wetsuit and no restbite is a…

The strength of the Embrace Fertility online community is in people sharing their experiences and giving others hope. I would like to enhance this by sharing stories that tell of personal development, overcoming challenges, shifts in beliefs and shifts in the relationship with yourself.

Helen’s Story – Embracing what is

Helen’s Story – Embracing what is

I’ve wanted a family for as long as I can remember. So when I walked down the aisle on my wedding day I felt like all my dreams were coming true. As soon as we were back from our honeymoon safari and the malaria drugs were out of my system we started trying. I remember…

Karen’s story – Anorexia, polycystic ovaries and finding strength

Karen’s story – Anorexia, polycystic ovaries and finding strength

My story started when I met my now husband Pete. Up until that point I had been a ‘functional anorexic’. I was seriously ill shortly before my 17th birthday but managed to fight back to be able to get on with my life. And I did just that. I was still terribly underweight, had no…

Henrietta’s story: Natural killer cells and a turning point

Henrietta’s story: Natural killer cells and a turning point

I often read and hear about people’s fertility ‘journeys’ – as cheesy as it sounds no word sums up what we’re all going through better. The ups and downs, the mental, the physical and the emotional.
