The Morning After

30/09/2018 - The morning after. I wasn't too sure how I would feel following surgery. I had read some blogs where people had said they felt lighter and a sense of relief … It was different for me - I was numb (literally) and still felt a little "hung over" from the medication I had, … Continue reading The Morning After

How to be a friend to someone on the fertility journey

I’ve started a podcast!

In 2017, I had a conversation with someone about why I had not started a YouTube channel... Again, the common argument was that people don't read as much and my posts can sometimes be too long...
