S2E44 - From Infertility to Becoming a Mother



Show Summary: 


"When you go on a conception journey, your husband becomes invested. I try not to get my hopes up, so I took a pregnancy test the next morning without telling him. Then I jumped on the bed and woke him up because it says, ‘We're pregnant!’

Many couples now face the difficulty of conceiving babies. Along with the textbook PCOS symptoms, the rise in infertility issues has made it an emotionally charged topic among women who desperately need to regulate their period so they can finally get pregnant.


Exactly a year ago, a Gutsy Health member shared the breakthrough of having her period back after being on birth control for 13 years. After trying IVF and other methods with no results, she sought knowledge to heal herself and overhaul her way of life.


Our guest, Katie Vaal, is back. After inspiring listeners on how she spurred her fertility, she now shares the exact steps that she took to become a soon-to-be mom to her firstborn.
