This week on Financial Fluency, I am so excited to have my first ever returning guest, Lindsay Fischer! Lindsay is here to speak with us about her new book, The Two Week Wait Challenge, so you know what that means: this is a book club episode. The Two Week Wait Challenge is a book of daily self care for women hoping to conceive and dealing with the high stress (read: trauma) of the two weeks between possible conception and the first time they could possibly know for sure whether or not they are pregnant. Lindsay is in the midst of her fertility journey right now and provides this book as a balm to other woman from someone who knows.
Our conversation also covers the true costs of IVF, mental, emotional, financial and physical, and the other options available for couples looking to have children in these times. Lindsay Fischer is a trauma-tested author who writes about her own experiences to help others feel less alone. A former English teacher and dance coach, a domestic violence survivor, and - now - a seemingly infertile Myrtle, she refuses to be silent about the things that change our lives. For her, those issues are domestic violence and infertility.
