Getting Pregnant and Birth Stories
Lizzie shares her infertility, pregnancy, and birth stories. The birth of her firstborn, Brooks, was 23 hours long. It was a very stressful labor due to Brooks’ heartbeat dropping during contractions, a difficult time with her nurses as well as the epidural partially wearing off during transition. The second labor with Jace was half the time and completely different. It was a very relaxing labor that included soaking in a tub, watching a movie and having wonderful nurses. She had a difficult time during pushing as the baby’s head was facing the wrong way.

Hi Lizzie, thanks for sharing insights on Ava Fertility Bracelet. I ever heard about it but never got the opportunity to learn about its effectiveness in monitoring physiological parameters and detecting the beginning of the fertile window in real time. I’m going to hook up with you on Instagram and hopefully learn more about the Ava Fertility Bracelet. Thanks.
There’s a book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility which is an incredible resource for literally every woman. It gives you so much insight to your body not just if you want to get pregnant or not. I want to recommend it to every woman I know because the information is so incredibly valuable. I would love to use the Ava bracelet and I’m excited to hear that it worked for someone!
