“The infertility journey is tough and one you should never it do it alone. When you’re deep in the trenches through, you feel very alone. Most of your friends have no idea what you’re going through and they continue to get pregnant with no issues. Your parents are supportive but they don’t really get it because this type of thing wasn’t discussed in their time. You and your partner are close but you’re experiencing it very differently. Especially from an emotional/physical aspect. There are days you just don’t know where to turn.
I found myself in a very dark place emotionally after my 2nd failed IVF cycle. I was desperate for answers and desperate for guidance from someone who got it. All I wanted to do was cry and all I wanted was a hug. I wanted someone to help me reset my mindset, give me hope, and help me prepare for all of the crazy unknowns. I didn’t want to feel like a failure anymore.
One Monday morning, my desire to find positive light led me to take action, and that’s when I found Kristen Darcy in a Google search. I reached out to Kristen to setup an initial free phone console. In our first 30-minutes together, I immediately felt a connection. There was that sweet, cheerful, empathetic voice I had been looking for. I told her my story, we did visual exercises on the phone together, and she connected me with a brand new fertility clinic, CCRM that just opened in Boston (my husband and I had been looking for a new clinic). Kristen made a personal call to the doctor for me and helped me get setup. I knew right then and there that Kristen was the angel I was looking for.
Kristen and I continued to work together for another 6 months. We met every couple of weeks or as needed. I can’t even begin to describe what a backbone she was for me every step of the way. She helped me develop effective strategies for communicating with my husband, dealing with uncomfortable social situations, managing my emotional pendulem, believing in positive mantras, and truly embracing each step of the fertility journey with grace and gratitude. Kristen was always available by phone, text, or email so I knew she was always there for me when I needed her.
I am happy to report that my husband and I finally had success with our first positive pregnancy test after several IVF and IUI attempts, and Kristen was one of the first people I called. I truly believe now, when there is a balance between your mind, body, soul connection – it’s easier to achieve success. I didn’t believe that before and hated when people would say that to me, but honestly, it’s true and it’s hard to get there on your own.
If you’re on this journey and are looking for the best support out there, I highly recommend working with Kristen as your coach, support system, and fertility angel. She is a beautiful and passionate spirit that can help guide you through the toughest turbulence and help you break through and see the light. Big hugs to all of you out there on this journey. You are not alone. Always keep the faith.”
“You’re the best motivator, listening and coach!!! Thank you, thank you!”
“You are truly an inspiration and angel in my life! I absolutely love working with you! xo”
Hi Kristen, I wanted to reach out to you about personal coaching. You worked with me a few years ago and I felt really good about that. I haven’t really kept it up. Things are good, but there is always room for improvement.
“Kristen, You’re not like other coaches focusing on what I’m doing incorrect. You understand me and supported and helped me. I find our sessions so empowering and I can feel the changes within me.” – R.N.
“Kristen was able to listen to my story and play it back to me in a way that made me see things differently. She offered a perspective of hope and gratitude that I hadn’t been able to see on my own, stuck in my fear and anger. Once I realized how lucky I was already, I felt a shift. This enabled me to appreciate exactly what I already had, and to not wish for anything to change. Although we never stopped hoping and trying for another baby, I let go of all expectations that anything would happen. I stopped trying to control the outcome and accepted that whatever would happen would be the right thing.” – D.K.
“I don’t know if it’s magical thinking, positive thoughts or just plain coincidence, but I encourage people to make their own Dreams List. You never know what will happen; putting your dreams or wishes out into the universe makes them available for fate to make them happen” – Tara Roberts
“Kristen so wonderfully shares her infertility journey and emotions, which has enabled me to better understand and assist my patients through this process.” – Dr. Robert Kiltz, Founder, CNY Fertility Center
“Kristen’s work helps peel back the layers of fear and anxiety. I leave sessions with her feeling understood, grounded and refreshed.” – Angela Bell, Lic. Ac., MAOM, Founder, Angela Bell Acupuncture
“Each week I spoke with Kristen we discussed my new revelations and how they fit into my current life. I will always be working through life’s little challenges, but with the coaching I received from Kristen Darcy those little challenges won’t be so gigantic. I am very grateful I worked with Kristen.” – Dan O’Rourke, Founder, NRG BAR
“I don’t know if you remember me, but we met last year at a conference last year. I just realized that I never told you the great news. I ended up having two beautiful, sweet and very healthy twin boys. Just wanted to thank you for the extra support during my infertility journey and share with you a story that shows that there are silver linings out there.” – D & R
“Kristen Darcy presented at Novartis’ Working Parents Connection. She provided insights, strategies and tips for immediate use for our employees experiencing infertility. The following month proved to be valuable for the employees who attended the webinar.” – Jenny Yessaian, RN, MBA, Novartis Oncology
“It was a true pleasure to have the opportunity to connect with Kristen during The Mind Belly Connection Fertility and Wellness Summit, as Love and Infertility had such a huge impact on me during my own fertility journey. Kristen really teaches us that big shifts can happen through simple changes. Starting each day by saying “THANK YOU”. Wow, what a different way to begin the day; what a different energy to step in to each day with.” – Molly Nichols, Founder and CEO, The Mind Belly Connection
“We have been on this journey for three years now and … I used to have very high highs and very low lows. But now, because of the strategies I have learned from you, I am able to live on a little more even keel. My husband has seen a vast improvement in my attitude and our relationship is stronger than ever.”
