Hey-it’s me again! I’m back and better than ever. At least that’s what I think. I went MIA for a little while. Come on now; don’t be mad, we all do it. Are you at all curious as to where I have been? Well, I went on my journey to motherhood; one that leads me to my beautiful baby girl, Kinsley. She couldn’t be any more perfect. I know, I'm biased. Cut me a break though, aren’t all moms?!
As I sat in my hospital bed, holding my baby girl, looking at my husband in a way I have never looked at him before, I felt an overwhelming feeling of appreciation come over me.
Appreciation for my degree in nursing that lead me to my dream job as a fertility nurse at Main Line Fertility.
Appreciation for the knowledge that I have gained about fertility since working at Main Line Fertility.
Appreciation for the physician I work for, Dr. Michael Glassner, for being one of my biggest supporters while my husband and I joined the infertility train along with thousands of other couples trying to conceive.
And, as I sat there, my feelings of appreciation turned into an overwhelming sense of feeling fortunate.
I’m fortunate because I'm educated on a topic where many women are not, and should be. What I mean by that is, many women don’t even know the basics of fertility. I’ll admit it-I didn’t. It wasn’t until I worked in a fertility center that I truly understood how complex conceiving a child is, and how lucky couples are if they don’t have any issues conceiving in this day in age.
So, as I sat there, staring into my baby girls eyes, I made a promise to her. I made a promise that I will make a difference in honor of her.
My mission is to educate women about fertility. I want to empower as many women as I can to help them make the best choices today which will allow them to have the best options tomorrow.
Baby girl...this is for you!
