Carol Gavhane is co-founder of Asha Blooms, a handcrafted purposeful jewelry company dedicated to inspiring and uplifting people.

Born out of her walk with secondary infertility, she and her husband created this business once it dawned on them that words and intentions really do matter. Each piece of jewelry is tied to a specific intention, and it’s their vision that others see themselves for who they already are – whole, loved, complete, courageous and renewed.

Everything about their first child was fairly typical, but trying to add to the family afterwards was incredibly difficult. During those years, they tried everything under the sun to get or sustain pregnancy - clean eating, support groups, fertility yoga, acupuncture, meditation, negotiations with God, many visits to the fertility clinic, and so on. These services absolutely helped as they provided comfort or bits of positivity, but there were many dark days thrown in the mix.

During this journey, Carol found a fertility bracelet that became a beacon of hope, a daily wearable reminder to continue on, which she did for nearly three years. Looking back, Carol credits science, hope, and intention with the creation of baby Henry.

I had the opportunity to meet Carol a couple months ago through a colleague and our connection was instant and deep.  I relate to so much of her story.  I know a lot of other mamas out there are with Carol and me, as well.

Listen in to hear Carol share:

  • What secondary infertility is and how it flipped her life upside down for 3 years
  • What infertility looks like on the outside vs. the inside of a woman's body and demeanor
  • How she found hope and comfort in an unlikely place
  • What inspired her to start a jewelry company and the special meaning behind her work
