My husband and I grew frustrated beyond belief after months of trying to conceive with no success. We are young and healthy, we couldn’t believe that we were having so much difficulty. From that frustration, Hello Warrior was born. This website is both a blog and a resource for other women (and men) to find knowledge and comfort in their journey to parenthood.
If you are coming to this page and wondering why the name of the blog is Hello Warrior then let me explain. In the infertility, trying to conceive, pregnancy loss communities the word warrior is thrown around a lot, and rightfully so. The truth is, that everyone is a warrior of some type. Rather you are an infertility warrior, a miscarriage warrior, and IVF warrior, an anxiety warrior, depression warrior, or a It’s Monday, I need some help warrior - you are accepted here. This is the place where I want women (and men) to feel like warriors every day, all the time, no matter what.
Hey there! We are Arden and Kerry Cartrette and we have decided to share our infertility and pregnancy loss journey with all of YOU! This decision didn’t come lightly, we actually kept this to ourselves for a really long time but it got exhausting to not let people in. We feel that this is our story for a reason and that reason is helping others through it (even though we aren’t exactly on the other side ourselves just yet) but we believe that talking about infertility and loss is the best way to raise awareness - so here we are.
Visit the blog page and read all about our journey through infertility and pregnancy loss, what we have learned along the way, and read stories that featured warriors share on Hello Warrior every Friday!
