Hi I'm Brittany! I helped found this company with my dear friend and fellow nurse Erika. Starting this company means so much to both of us and there are so many reasons why. I'd like to first tell you my personal journey to this point.
I am 28 years old and entered this world through the help of fertility treatment. It took my parents four years of fertility treatment to finally conceive me. Thus I was called the "miracle baby", as I was their second child and their son (my older brother) took them approximately the same amount of time. It is so amazing that my life has lead me to this very point, where I am in the unique opportunity to help other mothers get pregnant, when in fact my own parents struggled with pregnancy. That's why this company is so important to me, as I wouldn't be here today without the amazing science of Assisted Reproductive Therapies (ART).
With that being said, I hadn't originally planned to work in this area of nursing. It is sort of something that fell into my lap, so to speak. I was a newly graduated nurse who didn't know where my passions lied yet. With some luck, and several jobs later, I landed a nursing position with a fertility clinic in the Newmarket area. Although it was never my intention to work in fertility, I grew to have a passion for it. Through my years of working in the field I noticed a need within the patient community that just wasn't being met. With this, it took me some time and a lot of courage to start this journey of founding Fertility For You.
I know first hand what it is like for patients going through fertility treamtent, and I hope I can help support each and every one of you to the best of my ability!
