Beauty, Bumps & Babes

September 15, 2021


Have you been told you’ll need to have IVF to become a mumma? Has endometriosis affected you and your ability to fall pregnant? 

In this episode we have a delightful and enlightening chat with Amy Maree, who’s been through it all when it comes to becoming a mumma. When it takes 8 - IVF transfers and numerous procedures to fall pregnant, Amy thought her birth was going to be the ‘easy’ part...her birth had a different plan.
