I was wracking my brains for a secret that I could actually share publicly until I realised that I had a big secret this time last year!
I was pregnant with Little and at this point it wasn’t common knowledge. When we did tell people there was a little secret we shared with them too. She was conceived through IVF.
To those in the Instagram community it wasn’t actually a secret as I’d been very open about it once I found a group of women with shared experiences. I also did a series of posts about it on my old blog.
IVF can be a taboo subject that people don’t want to open up about but for me I wanted to talk about it. I loved finding others who had been/were going through it as it gave me hope. My Instgram account is now my online diary of what we went through and once Ivy was born I shared it with family and friends so they could see what our journey had been like.
I will forever be grateful for how amazing medical science is, and how Ivy was conceived won’t be a secret from her. She’ll know that some amazing Doctors and Nurses helped make her and how much she was wanted.
Little was made with lots of love and a little bit of science.
Little Big Love
