Fertility Friday Series Begins Today!
I’ve got some exciting news for you. Today marks the official launch of the series “Fertility Friday.”
“Wait!” I hear you saying. “What in the world does that have to do with food and nutrition and YOU, Sara?”
Let Me Explain.
Great questions everyone and let me say, you just set me up perfectly to explain myself. Here’s the back story, I’ve struggled with infertility. To make a really long story, super short, infertility is a hard, stressful, lonely and emotional journey. But, I’ve learned some things along the way and those things have led to this exciting place.
Divine intervention happened a few months ago when I met fellow fellow dietitian Elizabeth Shaw. To make our long story short, we clicked. She shared her infertility struggles and I shared mine. We talked so much, both lamenting the fact that there wasn’t a book written by dietitians for people going through infertility. That bothered us, so we have taken it upon ourselves to write that book. It’s been a fun, crazy, emotional process, but we’re excited about it. We want you to be excited about it too. April 24-30 marks RESOLVE’s National Infertility Week, making this a perfect time to kick things off. To bring awareness to a topic that is near and dear to our hearts, we have decided to run a series of posts on Friday’s in April dedicated to food, nutrition and fertility. We’re calling it Fertility Friday. It’s our way of showing you the fun stuff you’ll see in our book, but also a great platform to get people talking about infertility.
We hope you’ll share in our excitement as we tackle a subject that deserves more attention. Let’s make it a point to support everyone’s journey, no matter how easy or hard. Let’s take the steps necessary to live the Infertility Awareness Week motto of #startasking. To you, I say, #askaway!
And don’t forget to check out Liz’s site Shaw Simple Swaps for her introduction to Fertility Friday!

Congrats to you and Liz on this exciting journey. I would add that this is a great way to take away the stigma of infertility. Having gone through it myself (as you know from our conversation at FNCE), it can be a very lonely place as so many people are ashamed by it and don’t discuss it. Time to put an end to that and open the dialogue! So proud of you and Liz for doing just that!
Ah, thanks so much Jessica! There’s so many of us out there! It’s time we start the dialogue for sure! Thanks so much for your support.
Couldn’t be more excited to kick this off with you, Sara! Looking forward to what this next year brings!
I heart you big time! 🙂
What exciting news! I can’t wait to see what the two of you will be “cooking” up!!!
Lots of trouble Elana! But, the good kind of trouble. 🙂

Thanks Deanna! We hope to help as many people as we can. Thanks for your positive energy!

Me too! She’s been a great gift to me!
The audience for this topic is hungry (pun intended) for resources like this! Great job!
