    The Broken Brown Egg; its bigger than babies

    Today's bonus episode 13 features Regina Townsend, creator of The Broken Brown Egg. Regina shares her 10-year journey to motherhood and suffering from PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Regina and Monique also discuss the lack of brown representation within the fertility and infertility community, the roller coaster of emotions that infertility brings, being an advocate for yourself, and opening the conversation of health issues with our private circle of friends. The lack of education regarding women's health is a continual reminder of why platforms like Regina's is necessary.

    There is no quick fix to heal the body and conceive

    There is no quick fix to heal the body and conceive

    Hey friend, have you ever been searching google and stumbled upon a website promising to help you "get pregnant faster?" 
    I think we all have. These marketing devices prey upon our fragile emotions when we're having trouble getting pregnant. We become entangled in the darkest recesses of our minds, feeling ashamed, hopeless, and misunderstood. Whether you're in the care of a reproductive endocrinologist or trying to conceive naturally, the fertility issues' despair is the same. 
    In today's episode, Ruby Ben educates us on the body's inner workings, its response to the foods we eat, supplements, and the power of allowing the body to heal on its own. We delve deeply into food combing and ways to ease digestion discomfort, bloat, and excessive gas. 
    Ruby specializes in guiding her clients to restore their bodies to a healthy state. Especially endometriosis, (in)fertility, and weight loss. She teaches her clients the Natural Health Method.

    Are you a bonus-mom suffering from female factor infertility and often wonder when it will be your turn to give the gift of parenthood to your spouse?

After suffering from tubal infertility, the Cash family pursued IVF(invitro fertilization) and birthed their miracle child, Maliya January 2020. But their journey was not without moments of uncertainty and doubt.

    You get to choose; writing your infertility story

    You get to choose; writing your infertility story

    Have you often felt as if someone else was writing the story to your fertility/infertility journey, leaving you feeling like you have no control? 
    In today's episode, Marilyn Gomez reminds us through her journey to motherhood that we are the authors and possess the pen and paper to write our narrative. We discuss how infertility helped both of us tap into a level of our feminine divine energy that we had never experienced. Marilyn shares in detail what it's like to go through multiple IUI and IVF treatment cycles. 
    You get to choose; we get to decide how our journey begins, proceeds, and ends. You have all of the power necessary and required to move forward, empowered, and in control, friend. Though we may not be able to heal our infertility diagnosis', we can choose how we navigate the beginning, middle, and end. 
    Marilyn did just that, by turning the pain into a business (Infertile Tees) and podcast (mama vida podcast) that allowed her creativity to flourish, and continue to heal.
    Join us as we choose to write the story!

A soothing safe place

The infertility and me podcast is wonderful! I look forward to listening to it whenever it comes out. Monique has a very soothing voice and creates such a safe place for her guests and listeners. I love all the different topics covered. And I love following her on Instagram and other platforms because she has great content there as well.

My favorite infertility podcast

Monique has put together a show that brings in diverse voices and experiences. She is a skilled interviewer who treats all of her guests with kindness and compassion. Monique is real, and asks the real questions of her guests, which gives us, the listeners, the real answers about what other families have faced as they have journeyed through infertility. As a woman of color who is navigating infertility in what feels like a very white infertility world (where experiences like mine make up a small minority), Monique’s podcast is a safe haven for all people, no matter their background, who are just trying to make it through this madness with love and humor.

Best Host EVER
