Today’s Guest:

Today’s success story is about a woman named Rachel. She and her husband have been together for the past 15 years and married for the last three.

Although she always knew she wanted to be a mom, her desire really kicked into high gear when she saw her husband with their nieces and nephews. She used to travel a lot for work, but there came a time when she knew that had to stop and she had to make her fertility a priority.
