I’ve had some curious people ask why fertility? Why launch an exhibition around fertility? After all there’s enough IVF companies holding evening sessions around IVF. True, it’s how my husband and I started our fertility journey.
I researched for a year into different clinics, treatment, specialists, lifestyle changes such as eating habits, alcohol consumption, acupuncture, vitamins and much more before jumping on the IVF roller coaster ride.
And what a ride it was! But I remember going through the treatment, I found only one person willing to talk to me face to face. I wanted to connect with people who was going through or had been through the same thing, I found some facebook groups helped but I'm a "let's do a cuppa" kind a gal. Infertility is such a sensitive subject, you don’t realise how many people are going through their own journey until you decide to speak out.
In 2018 we welcomed our daughter into the world and what a blessing she is. It was while on maternity leave and speaking to ladies who also had help from science, I thought wouldn’t it be great to have everything under one roof, everything a person needs to help them come parents. And so All About Fertility Expo was born.
This exhibition is the first of its kind in Australia. I see this exhibition as home to all things fertility-related, where visitors can speak directly to IVF clinics, alternative medicine, fertility coaches, adoption/foster agencies, hear about surrogacy and much more. Seminar programmes throughout the day will educate and hear from real people on their journey. Connect, get to know each other and feel supported in your journey.
If you're thinking about starting a family or wanting to extend your family and you questions around trying to conceive naturally or if you need to talk to a few specialists without going to the GP for referrals then All About Fertility Expo 2020 can help you.
Taking place in Melbourne on Satruday 15 Aug 2020 and Sydney on Saturday 22nd Aug 2020
Let's Make it Your Year approached me to share my story. It's because of our story All About Fertility was born.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Sophia Baseotto, IVF coach and producer of the podcast Let's Talk IVF.
Let's Talk IVF is for everyone starting or undergoing fertility treatment. We will discuss the science, the emotions and everything in between. You can contact me directly through my website/Facebook/Instagram pages.
In this podcast I share my fertility journey, how I met my wonderful husband and the decisions and steps I faced when I realised my idea of parenting required a different approach to the standard one!
