This is our infertility story

There have been a number of times throughout the course of the past couple of years where the words,"well, that sucks," have come out of our mouths. The title of our podcast isn't necessarily a reflection of our negative outlook with our infertility but more a representation of how difficult each piece of our journey has been to hear.

Kelsey has a blocked fallopian tube? Well, that sucks. Tyler's morphology is well below average? Well, that sucks. We can't conceive a child naturally? Well, that REALLY sucks. 

Yes, this sucks, but our fight for a family is rooted in love, passion, and optimism. The infertility community is so strong, and we want to help bring everyone together with our story. Listen to our podcast and join the conversation to help us demystify infertility and the wild road that comes along with it!
