My name is Crystal and I have had fertility challenges for over seven years. I have gone through almost everything you can imagine, from miscarriages to the rare 1 in 65,000, an ovarian ectopic pregnancy. Highs and lows through the years of IUI’s, IVF’s and all the emotions and financial pressures that come with this. Listening to doctors and not trusting my gut, not taking control of my journey but putting it in the hands of the “Professionals.”
During this process, I have learned one thing, we do have the power and control over our fertility. I learned that my doctor was using the fear approach and that fear affected my fertility. As I would sit in the waiting rooms of the fertility clinics, packed with women of all ages looking stressed and scared, but with the desperation of trying to stay positive and hopeful, it became clear that I had to do something about this.
In December 2017 I created a non-profit called Blooming Hopes Fertility with the mission of creating awareness, provide resources and to help financially where needed. While working on the non-profit, I would have calls and emails from women with infertility asking for guidance, wanting to know what their next steps should be; where they should turn or just needing someone to talk to that has been in their shoes. Wanting to help each of them even more, I have taken the Fertility Specialist Coaching Certification so I can better help anyone that needs guidance along their journey.
After my ovarian ectopic pregnancy, I started taking control of my own fertility journey by trying to find ways to relax, looking into the foods I was eating and the products I was using. I tossed anything and everything with chemicals and toxins. One night, a friend asked to borrow my kitchen to make bath bombs for a wedding shower. While she took a phone call, I decided how hard could it be to make these things and started playing. I suddenly had an Oprah Ah Ha moment happen. Making and playing with the products was my form of zen, calmness, and mediation. From that simple moment, I created a line of beauty products called Bloomiss that are safe for all women to use, especially those of us struggling with infertility.
Putting it all together. Now that I have Bloomiss, the non-profit Blooming Hopes I wanted to tie them all together to help those struggling with fertility. At Fertility Blooms I want to provide clients personalized emotional, physical and informational support. I provide evidenced-based solutions so they can gain back control of their fertility, and make the right decisions for themselves. My mission is to help those suffering from infertility know that they are not alone and give them the confidence to pursue their journey.
