There are journeys in life that we plan and look forward to with anticipation, and then there are the journeys that life brings us. For me, these past few years have taken me on a journey through infertility, and I'm not alone. One in eight couples experience infertility and/or pregnancy loss, and it's a story that's often untold, making the journey all the more isolating. In today's extended episode, I'm sharing my own journey and also interviewing author Breanna Chud and therapist and priest Danae Ashley about their fertility journeys as well. Whether or not you're struggling with infertility, this episode is for you, because we all likely know someone who is, and one thing is certain: we all need tender and compassionate companions who are willing to journey with us wherever the road might lead.
