She didn’t know for sure she wanted to be a mom until she was 30 and suddenly felt tremendous pressure to move forward with that dream as quickly as possible. After only a couple months of trying to conceive, she had a feeling something was wrong and underwent testing with her GYN. Turns out she was in premature ovarian failure and her husband had low morphology. Join us to hear how she educated herself and advocated her way to success.
