Half Way There

National Infertility Awareness Week 2022 – Our story

A topic often surrounded by stigma, which so many feel uncomfortable discussing, approaching, sharing and for some even simply acknowledging.

Fertility after Infertility

It feels a little crazy to me to type those words out once more, it takes me back to a previously dominating period in my life that was once so all consuming and yet I have not given so much though to since the arrival of Finn. Honestly I feel that is largely down to…

Sonflower

Sunflowers have and always will make me think of our son Finn.

Our Fertility Journey

Now over half way through our first pregnancy, I find myself feeling reflective of our time spent ‘in our season of wait’ before our BFP. I am aware that our journey didn’t take the route that we were gearing ourselves up for, and that ours didn’t have the obstacles that so many other couples out…
