8 pregnancies. 7 miscarriages. 2 ectopic pregnancies. Hundreds of sticks peed on…Kaela has been through more than her fair share of infertility struggles, and with June being World Infertility Awareness Month, we are bringing you a special episode on this topic that so many are all too familiar with. As Kaela figures out how to give her 2-year-old daughter a sibling, we do a deep dive with her about what her current journey looks like - from considering IVF and surrogacy, to taking extra care of her body by trying a fertility aid supplement that went viral on TikTok (CONCEPTION by Eu Natural)…she opens up about where she is and how she’s holding up. Her husband, Jon, also joins us to talk about what it’s like to support a partner while also dealing with his own emotions, the lack of discussion about male infertility, and how his swimmers are doing...
