Hi, I’m Kate.
Wife to Mr M (Phil) and mum to our beautiful boy Austin James. Phil and I have been together almost 15 years, married for 4 and enjoying family life in Surrey.
Becoming a mum wasn’t easy for me and after 8 failed cycles of treatment (cycle monitoring and IUI’s) we had a successful first round of IVF in 2015. I quit my job in sport after my maternity leave finished this year and I have decided to follow my passion for writing.
We went through (and still are) so much on our fertility journey, I am definitely no expert and I don’t have all the answers but I can share my experiences and try to help break the silence surrounding infertility and baby loss. I absolutely adore life at home as a mum and we would love to expand our family with a sibling for Austin. How that will happen for us I am not sure, we are lucky to have some frozen embryo’s from our previous IVF cycle should we need them.
It’s such a rollercoaster journey for so many trying to have a family and I know how much bravery it takes to embark on motherhood after loss and such sadness. I found great comfort reading and listening to other experiences and I hope that by writing this blog it can offer some support. Life as a new mum brings about it’s own challenges and I am still learning and finding my feet!
