When I began my work with Dr. Smikle, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Medical Director at Laurel Fertility Care, in SF, California, I felt the impulse to try to find the culprit, to try to fix “infertility” for men and women trying to conceive.
I encourage you to approach “infertility” as you would a young child; as an act of unconditional love. I’m talking about living a life while trying to conceive that is driven by gratitude more than by fear. This is a very good way to become a Mother or become anything, really, that calls to your heart and brings you to life.

October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. If you have lost a child due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, still birth, birth defects, SIDS or other causes I want you to know you are not alone in your grief.
For a long time we looked at the world and thought not. Then we looked at our lives and thought maybe. Now we are trying. We bought a new set of sheets for the bed. We bought a thermometer and a book.
