Once Heather R. Huhman and her husband developed their careers enough to feel financially solvent, they decided it was time to start building their family. Unfortunately, the journey to motherhood was long and traumatic. In five years, Heather endured seven embryo transfers (three retrieval cycles with fresh transfers, four frozen transfers), four  miscarriages, and stillborn twins before finally giving birth to her daughter Aurora prematurely in January 2016.

Inspired by her own painful experience with infertility and pregnancy loss, Heather launched a twice weekly podcast called Beat Infertility in June 2015. The show features both infertility warriors and fertility experts to empower listeners to educate themselves and become their own self-advocates. 

In her professional life, Heather is the founder and president of Come Recommended, a PR company, and a regular contributor to Entrepreneur and Inc. Magazine. She resides in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband, their daughter, and their dog, Mackenzie.

I have been deeply touched by Heather’s story and I am so grateful to have her on the show to share her experiences with infertility and relating to so many mothers who struggle with loss and grief around pregnancy.

Listen in to hear Heather share:

  • Her infertility story of enduring multiple miscarriages and stillbirths
  • Her happy ending, that was still fraught with trauma
  • Why she started an infertility podcast in the middle of her infertility journey
  • How she thinks her podcast changed the course of her infertility
  • The unexpected gifts and lessons of infertility
  • What you can say to someone who is be going through infertility or has suffered a loss
