TW: baby loss, pregnancy loss

After nearly 7 years of marriage and 11 pregnancies, I'm joined by Mercy Akinwande as she shares her struggles with infertility on the journey to motherhood. In honor of May being mental health awareness month, one of the reasons why we had this conversation was to try to eliminate or reduce stigmas associated with sharing about difficulties conceiving, going through pregnancy loss, and postpartum depression in our community through open conversations about each individual's personal challenges and how to overcome them. She also spoke on the importance of speaking up for yourself, being knowledgable about your rights as a patient, asking questions to your healthcare provider team, and other lessons learned through her experience. Stay tuned for part two of this recording.
