Jenn Sharp found out early in her TTC journey that her ovarian reserve was extremely low. After attempting IUI cycles that were unsuccessful, her and her husband turned to IVF with donor eggs. She breaks down the donor egg process from the perspective of parent and gets real about the emotions and logistics that come along with the process. In the end, she shares that her crazy journey made sense the second she met her adorable daughter. A well deserved happy ending!
My guest on this episode is South African bombshell, Genevieve "Vieve" Uys. At just shy of 30 she has started her own business, Traveling Donors, donated eggs that have results in NINE human lives and started banking her own eggs for future use all in the name of women's health; which I love. We talk egg donation basics but also get into the nitty gritty - you all know I ALWAYS have questions. You will leave this episode understanding the process, the costs and everything in between!

Arielle’s advice for coping with fertility, “Do not let fertility define you.” Find things to do to look forward to outside of your journey so it doesn’t consume you.
I couldn’t agree more.

Dr. Lauren Schneider is a fertility acupuncturist that has been on her own fertility journey for many years. IN this episode, she walks us through the evolution of her career, how she helps act as "air traffic control" for her patients during their fertility journey and explains the ins and outs of surrogacy, which is how she ultimately started her family. I always enjoy talking with women who have professions in the fertility world that have also gone through their own journey. I feel it brings an entirely new element to their approach on how they give care that all of us infertility warriors can appreciate.

On this episode, I get into why I started Fab Fertility. Warning, I get emotional. I still cannot tell the story of my miscarriage without crying. The pain never leaves, there will always be a missing part of my heart & my life will be forever changed. When I reflect back, I know going through that hard time has made me a different woman. I am stronger, appreciate life more than ever & have a fierce desire to help others struggling alongside me with their own fertility.
