I wanted to share with you my 'why'. Why I created The Lotus Collective: Your Fertility Journey and what it means to me. My start to Mamahood was hard.... I couldn't even get to that point of becoming pregnant.
Mother's Day is fast approaching this year (hint hint hubby!) and it's certainly going to make for an interesting and different day. I know it'll be hard not seeing my mum at all this year and I'm sure you're feeling the same way. That's why I wanted to put together a blog showcasing some amazing small businesses and what they have to offer.
I truly have a story to tell, my road to motherhood was not an easy one, and I know that there are so many women and couples out there struggling to be moms, so by my own experience on this, I want to share my story with you.
Embryo storage is an all too common issue that many families are having to deal with. In Australia alone, there is an estimated 100,000 embryos in storage. This is nothing to scoff at as families across the country battle with the same decision as myself.
I roll over to desperately turn off my blaring morning alarm. Only then do I realise the searing pain across my lower abdomen. As I’m curled in a ball I start to panic as it hits me that Emmanuele is still at work and there is no way I can move. I try to get out of bed and fall to the floor in a heap. As I’m curled up in a ball, I call Emmanuele and try to tell him what’s going on. How could I explain what was going on when I didn’t know myself?
