Cat and her husband have been trying to conceive (TTC) for almost 6 years of their 10 year relationship.
Following her second IVF miscarriage in 2015 they decided to take time off from seeking assisted help and focus on themselves and their relationship - along with a bit of natural 'trying' here and there!
This was time well spent because their fertility treatment had taken their confidence, self esteem, savings, jobs and most importantly their passion, -for everything.
Now, feeling back on top (mostly) Cat is working with Fertility Network UK to help break the taboo of fertility so that the 1 in 6 people who are dealing with it don't feel ashamed or alone in their journey.
Cat and Bob are still trying for their family although have recently received a negative result from a recent round of IVF. The choice now is to keep trying or to stop and accept a life without children.
