Coping with Infertility and Grief
1 in 8 couples experience an infertility journey. A journey that involves physical, emotional and financial stress, while straining relationships. In this episode, we discuss the mental toll, heartbreak, grief, and thankfully, hope - with FabFertility's very own, Blair Nelson.About Blair Nelson: Blair Nelson is an infertility warrior who began her journey in 2018 after being told IVF was the only way to grow her family due to an inherited genetic factor her husband, Will, was born with. After their second embryo transfer from their first round of IVF treatment, Blair suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage that redefined her life. Ever since then, she has made it her mission to bring facts, tips, inspiration and most importantly a voice to the topic of infertility. She found refuge in her difficult times online among women who have had similar experiences, and she wants to return the favor. Her Instagram account, Fab Fertility, has grown into a brand, podcast and blog. She also co-founded Fertility Rally in 2020, an event and membership platform to support and educate anyone building their modern family. After five rounds of IVF, countless shots and procedures, Blair and Will are expecting their rainbow baby girl in May of 2021.Related Resources: FabFertilityFertility RallyCoFertilityThe National Infertility AssociationA special thanks to our team:Tracy Lehman, Host & Executive ProducerOs Galindo, Senior Producer & EngineerYue Nakayama, Audio EngineerJacel Dickson, Editor & Graphic DesignerAdministrators: Mary Elizabeth Hand and Audrey Omensonwith music by Jim RomanThanks for listening!

We’ve all heard that question, “Who am I outside of this relationship/marriage”. Singleism, the term for people living life outside of a committed, romantic relationship, is an emerging area of focus on a state of living that many of us are in at one time or another either by choice or not. There is so much wonderful momentum behind the concept of living life while single and destigmatizing past views of what “living single” means in order to open us all up to the possibilities of our very own selves! Helping me explore the beauty and challenges of single hood at any age, I have my friend, colleague, and NFCC’s Lead Clinician, Heather Timmis, MA, LMFT-S.About Heather Timmis:Heather Timmis is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor (LMFT-S) who works with families, couples and individuals ages 3 years and up. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin as well as a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Heather has experience helping clients work through challenges related but not limited to sexual abuse, trauma, suicidal thoughts/actions and anxiety. She believes in a flexible, collaborative approach where she and her client work as a team to determine the best fit for the client’s needs. In addition to her amazing clinical work, Heather is obsessed with all things pop culture and experienced her fair share of dating apps before she finally met her fiancé.
