About

Whose ramblings are these, anyhow?

I’m a twenty-something wife to a wonderful husband, and mama to two beautiful children. I’m a dreamer; I love to write, to read, and to eat my feelings.  I bake to celebrate (and cope with) the ups and downs of motherhood after years of infertility. Every occasion calls for dessert, and I have a dessert for every occasion. So tie up that apron, preheat the oven, and bake alongside me.

Check out our TTC Journey page for more information on how we overcame infertility. Though its over for now, I feel forever indebted to the awesome ALI community for getting me through this dark period in my life. See the Resources page for other blogs and websites related to infertility.

  1. Hi,
    My name is Hannah. I am writing to introduce myself with regards to a project that I am currently working on as a Masters student in the Psychology Department at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. The Women’s Health Psychology lab is particularly interested in why certain women pursue treatment for problems with fertility, how this process affects them, and how this process may be different for minority women, as they experience infertility at a higher rate, but use treatment much less.

    I would be extremely grateful if you could share on your website the brief description of the study below and the link to participate, which I hope will advance our understanding of how women are affected by problems with fertility.
    The Project is called the Philadelphia Fertility Project. Here is a brief description:

    Philadelphia Fertility Project

    The purpose of this survey is to learn about the social, mental, and emotional experiences of women with fertility problems. It will take about 10 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely anonymous. Women who are between the ages of 18-45, not currently pregnant, and have difficulty conceiving naturally through unprotected intercourse and/or carrying a pregnancy to term are invited to participate in this study.

    In appreciation of your participation, two $100 donations have been made to the American Fertility Association and Resolve: The National Infertility Association by the research team to thank you for sharing your experiences and to benefit others who struggle with fertility problems. If you have any questions about this study, you may contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Pamela Geller, Ph.D., or the research coordinator, Mona Elgohail, at 215-553-7121

    Lastly, I want to say that I am a huge fan of your site, and I would also be happy to link your posts on the Philadelphia Fertility Project’s Facebook and Twitter pages as well.
    Thank you for your time, consideration, and all your hard work advocating for women with fertility problems! If you would like more information regarding this study, please feel free to contact me at PhillyFertility@gmail.com

    Sincerely,
    Hannah
