Embracing the Storm

It’s done; I’ve finally completed my follow up memoir, and I feel so grateful and nervous all at the same time. This was my story, my journey, my fight through a cloud of uncertainty and grief, to search for the beauty of the rainbow. Throughout it all, I kept a journal, capturing all of my experiences, my feelings and sometimes… Read more →

One and Done?

“So when are you starting on number two?” Yes really, I am already being asked that question. My son is just under four months old, and already I’ve encountered the rush to add another sibling to our new family of three. My response… “You have heard about my struggles with fertility right? You know I wrote a book about it?”… Read more →

The New Eve Fertility Method

I recently had the privilege to read Bridget Osho’s New Eve Fertility Method prior to it’s release. Bridget is a strong advocate for women who have experienced the loss of miscarriage and stillbirth to channel the strength of their body and mind to conquer their infertility. Even more amazing, Bridget asked me to write the foreword for her new release. Bridget doesn’t give you a miracle… Read more →

My Final Two Week Wait…

It feels unreal, but in just over two weeks (could even be less) I will finally get to meet my rainbow baby!   Through everything we have endured, and the obstacles we’ve faced, I now look down at my rounded belly and find myself almost feeling that this is some kind of dream.

I remember her smell, like sweet roses.  Her aroma and tiny breaths calmed me… Read more →

Beyond the Rainbow

This week I am thirty weeks pregnant, and by now I should now be comfortable and confident in this pregnancy right? Wrong! I still worry, I still have doubts, and I still fear that this promise of my rainbow baby could be taken away from me at any moment. Perhaps that sounds paranoid, but it’s my reality. Many ask me why I… Read more →

The Road to my Rainbow

For the past four years my goal has been to get pregnant with my rainbow baby. It has been all I have hoped and dreamed for, and I remained determined never to give up. I was lucky. I fell pregnant easily, but sadly I couldn’t ever seem to stay pregnant, until now. I count myself even luckier today as I reach my… Read more →

Why we NEED to talk about the baby

As a woman who struggled with fertility, and having experienced multiple miscarriages, I was shocked by the social discomfort that surrounds the subject of trying to conceive, infertility and loss.   Like many women I had at times wondered if I would ever really fulfil my destiny to be a mother; the losses I experienced reinforced these fears and heartbreak,… Read more →

The Colours of a Rainbow

I have travelled this path for some time now. Always searching for my rainbow, hoping that one-day this storm will pass. Many of you have been walking with me; holding my hand when I’ve needed it and urging me to keep walking, when I slowed down. There have been times where I have wanted to turn around, or find a… Read more →
