As one of those six million women, I felt alone, frustrated, and depressed. All of the women around me seemed to get pregnant on the first try, while my husband and I had been trying for two years without success.
I felt like I had no one to talk to. And no where to look for reliable information that took into account all aspects of the journey. So I did the only thing I knew how to do: I reached out to family and friends for support. And I created a website.
Withoutchild.com was created to bring the fertility discussion out of the bedroom and into the forefront. To be a place where women can find accurate information about all aspects of fertility, and not just about IVF or IUI.
At Without Child, we talk about the healing power of food, massage, acupuncture, and emotional support. We also talk about adoption, self care, and PCOS from the perspective of women who are going through it.
Just because you are without child does not mean that you are without choice, without love, or without hope.
Wherever you are on the journey, there is a safe place for you here.
Without Child is a community of women who have been there and done that. A community of advocates for health and choice. A community of holistic practitioners and health coaches.
And a community of support.
