In 2013, I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I had over twenty removed, only to discover they’d done damage to my reproductive organs, and I now faced an uphill battle to conceive.
I started this blog to share my story, because it’s the story for so many other women, Black women and other Women of Color especially, who remain silent for fear of judgement, rejection, shame, ignorance, and stigma of infertility and infertility treatments in our community.
This has led me to be concerned about, and advocate for Women’s health, access, and education. My goal is to create a space that’s informative, supportive, and fun.
It can be hard when you’re going through to remember to laugh and enjoy life a little. It’s easy to feel like you’re the only one going through this. Nothing about surgery, shots, medical bills, test upon test, and the uncertainty of fulfilling a lifelong desire to become a parent seems fun or funny. But there is beauty in the struggle.
You’re not alone.
