Episode 026 - First Time Mom Over 40 Years Old After Multiple IVF Rounds and Hormone Treatments w/ Quinn (Part 1)

April 04, 2021

Show Notes

After having a highly lucrative career and achieving financial success, Q didn’t stress about having a baby until one day she realized that she was in her 40’s and was missing the one thing that would make her life complete – a baby.

To avoid spending too much time trying to conceive naturally on her own, Q and her husband sought the assistance of Fertility Specialists to help them have a baby after several months of trying. With no known infertility issues, Q was unaware of the emotional and physical journey that she was about to encounter in trying to conceive her baby.

Several failed IVF attempts, a fertility clinic error, relocation to another state, and frustration, Q finally had a successful transfer after a simple change to her treatments. Fortunately, once pregnant, things went relatively smooth, as pregnancy was the calm before the storm of having a newborn for the first time mom in her 40’s.

Being as candid as ever, Q talks about the things that no one tells you about having a baby and newborn. Initially struggling to find a balance and her sanity, Q took matters into her own hands and made decisions that were in the best interest of herself, baby and husband.
