The fertility journey for my wife Sabrina and I has not been an easy one. Our #TTC challenges started three years ago as we began trying for our second child. Also known as “secondary infertility”, we regret not starting sooner, like many of us do. Yet the hardest part of this experience has come from an ancillary TTC issue - a painful miscarriage.
It’s a very scary thing going through IVF. You spend thousands of dollars with no guarantee that it will even work. It’s so hard to let go of control during this process, but I have found that letting go has given me the most peace about the outcome of our infertility journey.
After Heather Martinez began facing fertility obstacles, she wanted to find other women going through similar experiences. Realizing there is strength in communities, Heather started her unconventional support group to serve as a space for women to socialize, express themselves, and heal.
