01: The Difficult Path of Infertility: Emily Levenson


No one knows you like you do! That’s the lesson my guest, Emily Levenson, learned on her own Messy Road To Motherhood. Emily’s hard road absolutely transformed how she lives her day-to-day life. After struggling with Infertility for 4+ years, suffering a miscarriage, and experiencing a lack of support from the medical community, Emily decided that she was going to take control of her health and her body. She pursued energy healing, meditation, naturopathic medicine, and diet changes all with one goal in mind: a healthy pregnancy. Her beautiful daughter is healthy and well today as the fruit of her persistence! 

    I know you are going to be inspired by Emily’s steadfast pursuit of motherhood. She defied the odds as her own advocate, and if you today are struggling with infertility, I know you are going to come away with the boldness to continue on your messy road. Emily learned that she knew what her body needed to heal and nurture a new life, and you do too! I’m excited to share the whole story with you today! 

This is a part of your journey, and it hurts like hell. But it doesn’t have to be the whole thing.
— Emily Levenson
