Jennifer shares her IVF journey and how she was able to save thousands of dollars on costs.
1. What is one fun fact about you that not that many people know?
I really love cats and I have three cats. I’m basically a cat lady, but what most people don’t know is that I’m actually allergic to cats and I have to take allergy shots so that I could have.
2. Who inspires you the most and why?
I was really thinking about this one and I’m going to have to say, we actually named my daughter for my grandmother. She passed away last year, but I was really thinking about her as an inspiration, since she was my daughter’s namesake.
3. What books are you reading now or have read and loved that you’d recommend?
Your One-Year-Old: The Fun-Loving, Fussy 12-To 24-Month-Old by Frances L. Ilg and Louise Bates Ames
4. What is one actionable tip or piece of advice that you can tell our moms out there to help them on their financial independence journey?
I think the biggest tip that I’ve had in these 10 months and then going through IVF is don’t be afraid to do your own thing. I think we, as moms in today’s society, have a lot of expectations, whether we put them on ourselves or they’re from our friends and family or just, society’s expectations. Step back and do your own thing. You don’t have to spend inordinate amounts of money to have a happy and healthy child. And, you don’t have to be the perfect social media mom.
