The Fertility Show invited me to do a takeover on their Instagram page – my first takeover ever! I had really good engagement and it was an incredibly affirming experience – hearing from others and being asked questions I hadn’t even thought about. You can catchup via the highlights & the live session I had with Sophie Sulehria after.
My stint on BBC Woman’s Hour with Anita Rani.
Our 3rd round of IVF failed and the whole thing has hit me like a bus. This is not a podcast episode because I am not able to speak about this without crying.

Episode 5 out now! I’m back with another episode about my journey. In this episode I am just checking in with reflections from our third round of IVF.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” – Hebrews 10 v 23 I say this all the time… I wasn’t always this believer (in God). I believed in a higher power of some sort and felt no need to be definitive about that. And IContinue reading “Faithful To The End”

You can have both God & Fertility treatment – Noni Martins IVF seems to be this big secret that is only shared in the TTC community and the information never gets passed down and across to people outside of the TTC community. Almost everyone I have spoken to either has no idea what IVF isContinue reading “What is IVF? (and ICSI)”
And then I surrendered. To the soft. And the sweet. And the sorrow. Not shying away. Allowing each inhale and exhale to source a new life in my cells from their exchange. Let this teach you. Within each release, lives an offering. What we let go of creates room for beginnings… Your winter may lastContinue reading “The Show Must Go On”
Oh, the blessing. Oh, the blessing. Can’t you see, what God has done. – Jesus Is King, Sunday Service Collective So the truth is, I hadn’t really been into the ‘Christian God’ thing for quite a while… I was always spiritual to a degree, spiritual including feeling things from my ancestors and I always believedContinue reading “God, Infertility & Me”
