My Journey with… – This series is about getting real… sharing the real stories that touch people’s hearts and resonate long after they’ve closed down the tab. I started My Journey with… as a way of breaking the “everything is perfect” perception that is often the case on social media. This series features real women sharing their experiences of life, from bipolar to chronic fatigue, from extreme weight loss to miscarriage, from anxiety disorder to the loss of a spouse. I’m so honored that these women have chosen Becoming you as the platform where they share their stories… and I’m so proud to be making a difference, breaking stigmas and starting conversations! Click here to read previous posts in the My Journey with… series

My Pregnancy Story – A space where women can help to educate other women on how they experienced pregnancy and inform moms-to-be on what to expect. This is an amazing series that showcases just how unique each pregnancy can be! Click here to read the pregnancy stories already shared on Becoming you.
