My name is Delia and this is my story of "Chasing the Cherub" so to speak!
I wanted to have children a bit later in life, so at the ripe old age of 38 years, my partner and I decided to start trying for our little bundle of joy, okay I never wanted to wait until I was 38 years old, but due to circumstances and life, this is how it turned out. I never imagined I would struggle with my fertility and this is when my journey began.
I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure AKA Primary Ovarian Insufficiency. I did not even know that this was a thing, but trust me, it's real and devastating and there are thousands and thousands of women suffering from it all over the globe. So basically, in layman's terms, you start going into menopause before 40.
I was told that I would never be able to fall pregnant naturally and my only hope of having a baby would be with IVF and donor eggs. Naturally, I was devastated, to say the least. So I decided that I was going overcome this diagnosis and get pregnant anyway.
So this is my story of how I fell pregnant naturally by going all natural, I will share all the research I did and things I tried, supplements, my diet, recipes, lifestyle changes, non-toxic beauty and home products and many many more fertility friendly "things".
I really want my story to give you hope if you are struggling with infertility and know that you are not alone, you are doing the best you can and it's okay to not be okay.
PS: Please know that I do not want to minimise, in any way, what other women with infertility issues have been going through. Every person and situation is different and each of us are on our own journey. I can only speak from my personal experiences and what has worked for and helped me.
