The Path to Motherhood Podcast: Navigating Infertility and Pregnancy Loss

Welcome to The Path to Motherhood Podcast. I’m your host Sarah Brandell, an infertility and pregnancy loss mindset coach, wife, and a rainbow baby mama on a mission to help you manage your mind and emotions around the infertility rollercoaster. I know where you are because I’ve been there. I have been through the long journey to motherhood, the waiting, the fertility appointments, the testing, the unanswered questions, the medications, the shots and I am ready to help. Whether you are just getting started, have an infertility diagnosis, are working on balancing hormones, or going through IUI and IVF, we are here to support you! We share all things navigating infertility, grief, pregnancy loss and so much more. This podcast is for you if you are ready to learn how to navigate your path to motherhood authentically while honoring the emotions but also cultivating some hope. Join us each Monday as we walk through how to use the power of coaching to not only feel better along the way but also feel like you have an identity out of just trying to conceive.
