What is your company and what do you do?
I am a certified fertility coach who places a special focus on heart health and gives others infertility support. I have experienced in vitro fertilization, miscarriage, survived sudden cardiac arrest and been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, so it’s safe to say, I might understand the struggles and constant wondering of the popular question, “Why me?”
However, I was able to have a healthy and happy baby boy, and turn my tragedies into triumph through advocacy, awareness, and now coaching.
