I’m Claire, nice to meet you! I’m 36, a wife and cat mama trying to navigate starting a family with a shoddy ovarian reserve.

This blog is a place for me to document what happens between infertility, ivf, missed miscarriage and the everyday… because real life carries on, even when you want the world to stop for a minute or two.

If you are on your own journey to start a family the scientific way, my one piece of advice to you would be to use social media to seek out people who can understand and support what you are going through. There are so many of us going through this, you are not alone.

Instagram is a fantastic place to start, you can search the hashtags #ttc or #ivf to find people in the very same boat as you. Feel free to follow me, I’m @mrs_secretsquirrel over there.

Good luck!
