Sweet sister, first let me say I am so sorry. Infertility and pregnancy loss are incredibly hard journeys. There is nothing and no one that can prepare you for the roller coaster of emotions you heart will go through, but I want you to know you are not alone.
I have been in your shoes and I hope to share hope and courage with you as you navigate the difficult trials of infertility and/or loss. I know how hard these things can be to talk about and process, so know that I am here for you to walk alongside you, to cheer you on, and to hold onto hope for you. From my experience, the only thing harder than going through infertility or pregnancy loss is going through it alone. I hope to encourage even just one person who is struggling (or knows someone who is struggling) with infertility, a miscarriage, infant loss, or recurrent pregnancy loss by writing and sharing my experiences.
I would love to connect with you personally and walk beside you as you navigate the complexity of emotions that comes with the territory of going through infertility or miscarriage. I want to be here to hold your hand, encourage you, support you, pray for you, and remind you that you aren’t alone and that there is always hope. Sign up below to connect with me and let me know how I can best support you on your journey. You will also get free access to the resources and community I wish I had when I was going through my own journey of infertility and miscarriage. I look forward to connecting with you to learn more about how I can support you on your journey.
Join a Support Group:
Even though one out of every four pregnancies end in miscarriage and infertility affects one in every eight couples, I know first-hand how isolating and lonely it can be when you are in the middle of it. I am a huge believer in walking through this journey alongside other women who love Jesus who can help hold your arms up when you feel weary, whether that’s your friends and family, a trusted Life Group or women’s ministry, or an Infertility/Miscarriage Support Group.
If you are looking for an Infertility/ Miscarriage Support Group, below are a few of options. The women behind these ministries are Godly, passionate, and have the biggest hearts for YOU.
- The Garden (in-person support group that meets in Greer, SC plus an online support group)
- Strongheart (online Facebook support group)
- Moms in the Making (in-person support group that meets in numerous cities and states plus online support groups)
