As you might have noticed, there hasn’t been a Monday episode for quite a while. If you haven’t listened yet to episode 38, you might not know why. Heather’s IVF miracle was born via emergency c-section in the middle of the night 6 weeks early. Since then, it’s been a long struggle to find enough balance to be able to conduct these interviews properly.

This is the first episode of our new interview format. Each Monday will feature a success story, a journey story, or journey updates. Regardless of the interview type, the goal is to focus more on the story behind what makes the guest the person they are today.

Today’s Guest:
