Katherine's Infertility Journey

There are many conditions that can cause infertility such as PCOS and Endometriosis, however, male factor infertility and unexplained infertility are quite common factors as well.

If you picture a pregnant mama delivering her baby, you probably conjure up an image of a messy-haired, red-faced woman lying on her back in a hospital bed with her legs in stirrups. This image has been painted for us by many different forms of media, especially television.

Elizabeth Ernest and her third addition to her family

The procedure itself was much more intense due to the seriousness of the situation.  Due to a complication from my pregnancy, the operation had to be rougher, and the anesthesiologist upped my medications as a result.   

 

Elizabeth Ernest and her second addition to her family

For my second pregnancy, I was determined to have a vaginal birth after my c-section (VBAC).
