Mamas with Infertility, Listen Up: Part 1
Nov 01, 2019
We know how many women are deeply affected by infertility. We (Cortney & Stephanie) have both dealt with infertility at different stages in our lives, we believe it's important to talk about it openly. If this is the road you are walking as well, you need to know you are not alone! Sometimes there are things we can do on our own to support fertility and sometimes we need to reach out for some extra help. No matter where you are in your journey, we support you and hope you will find comfort, hope, and perhaps even some helpful tidbits of information!
