To say "trying to conceive is a milestone," is an understatement.

Many of us went years trying to prevent pregnancy to then later find ourselves with the referral to reproductive specialist.

We learn so much about our bodies and yet, we wonder if our family will ever grow.

This program is different than peer support groups.

We will explore your steps to where you are today, your shattered dreams, and even who you are now as a result of infertility.

Each of our stories are unique and that is a wonderful part of life. Stories are meant to be shared... to feel, smell, laugh and cry and bring us back to that time when...


Groups are the best way to share these stories.
I've lead these types of groups since 2009. I'm honored to offer the program online.

While navigating our family building, we try to figure out how to live in the fertile world. Our next steps can be filled with many thoughts, feelings, and even questions.

In time, we learn how to connect with our experiences in sorrow and sometimes laughter. And we eventually accept that we may even feel both at the same time, and that is okay.

Our experience is multifaceted. There are many parts to infertility, well beyond the medical.


You have your own story of living and infertility. This program is here to help you explore your story.

Unique opportunity to work with Julie Blackburn, Grief & Infertility Specialist and National Speaker.

Julie Blackburn is now offering small group sessions up to 15 participants go step-by-step through Your Story of Infertility.

During the group time, you will have an opportunity to share your stories and be present for others as they share theirs through a process that integrates griefwork, art therapy, and narrative therapy. Each session will close with a meditation or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) experience.

In the first week, you will learn the steps that you will be doing over the following 9 weeks.

Each week you will receive options of story prompts. The options will be open ideas in which you apply to your own life.

You will continue that process at home when it's best for you for each story prompt of your choice.

Through it all, you will have 9-18 stories started as you create your own collection of stories.

I'd like to get to know you...
