What better time to launch a Visionary Moms Blog Series than the 20th anniversary of that week in April of 1992, when the number on the lab report with my FSH levels was the same as my age: 42. And wouldn’t you know it, that anniversary falls smack in the middle of National Infertility Awareness Week! Life has an impeccable sense of timing, if we can just let go and trust it!
Increased awareness would serve us well. I bet our children would cheer us on if we stopped seeing ourselves as victims of a disease and became more aware of how much we ourselves can do to co-create healthy fertile bodies and lives; I bet they would squeal in delight watching us morph into Visionary Mamas on an awesome mission: a safer Earth-Home for all.
So let the wild rumpus begin!
Our very first guest blogger series Priceless Lessons In-Fertility will feature bloggers like Kumari Linley from London, UK, whose FSH levels were more than 3 times higher than mine and her AMH levels (for those of you who are troubled with that controversial marker of ovarian reserve) were 0.01. Kumari is now 4 months pregnant with her first child.
We’ll hear from Mandy Queally, a second grade teacher in Maine, who has always dreamed of becoming a mom but never imagined to end up in the emergency room just a few weeks after her first positive pregnancy test. Mandy, too, will share the priceless lessons of her pilgrimage toward motherhood.
Morgan, a young Canadian ethicist and mom-to-be will write about the controversial topic of birth control pills and about transforming her donor egg cycle into a wholesome, life-affirming adventure!
This inaugural series hopes to introduce the first in a line of future Fertile Heart Visionary Mom bloggers, who have used the Ovum tools to birth babies, families and most important, to birth themselves. After reading their stories you might never again think of yourself as infertile or punished or suffering from a debilitating disease!
Hope to see you back here on the 22nd!
May the Force of Fertility Awareness be with us!
