Peta Murgatroyd of Dancing with the Stars Infertile AF

    • Alternative Health

Today, Ali is talking to Dancing With the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd about the secondary infertility journey she is currently experiencing, after she and her husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, another DWTS pro, had their son, Shai, who is now five years old. Peta talks about her three miscarriages, dealing with loss in the middle of her Dancing with the Stars season, why she felt embarrassed and ashamed by having miscarriages, why she feels it's so important to talk about it now, how she and Maks have dealt with it together, and what happened when she started IVF this past June. She also talks about balancing work with raising a family (and the regrets she has in that area), wondering how and why miscarriage could happen to her, listening to her gut, why she thought IVF was "a broken woman-type of thing" and how her body and mind have responded so far during her IVF journey.
