Recently, I joined with Kristen Magnacca, Fertility Coach and Author of Love and Infertility after we had that moment at the Fertility Planit Show in NYC. We sat a row apart from each other listening in and sharing our experiences of loss at the Ariosa Diagnostics sponsored session on Healthy Pregnancy and Prenatal Care: A Discussion on First Trimester Screening and Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing. It was wonderful to have that support at that brief moment knowing that someone else in the room could relate to to similar experiences that I had. Shortly after event Kristen contacted me to me her guest on her monthly teleworkshop titled, How Do I Go On After Pregnancy Loss? During this call we spoke about losses, while sharing tips to cope.
In this community I feel that it is important to share the work of others that dedicate their time and efforts in this community. It is not only the support to those patients that are still struggling with infertility or have experienced pregnancy loss; it is all about the community of professionals, bloggers, authors, fertility app developers, social media gurus, advocates and coaches. We all have a place in this supportive community to share our work with everyone.
I felt so honored that Kristen and I, both Author's of our own fertility related books came together as one to guide others and share our stories. This workshop was a refreshing experience and not only helped others but it also continued to help us heal, release and move forward.
