Detroit Mom Infertility Resource Guide

Being deemed “infertile” is overwhelming and devastating. Beyond the “why me,” you’re often left questioning whether you’re doing enough or what you’re not doing that you should be; wondering what the missing link could be that would just get you pregnant (and keep you pregnant). 

Jesse and I have both been there. As infertility warriors and advocates ourselves, we want you to know you’re not alone. 

Whether you’re just starting on your infertility journey and looking for guidance OR you’ve been weathering this storm for a while and are feeling stuck, Jesse and I put this infertility resource guide together in hopes it will give you a wide range of options to help you feel seen and supported. 

We asked the members of our infertility and loss community for their favorites in all things infertility in the Metro Detroit area and have crowdsourced their answers. 

Below is a compilation of doctors, practitioners, specialists, organizations, mental health professionals, books, podcasts, and social media accounts (and more!) that come recommended from our own personal experiences, our group members’ experiences, and/or insiders in the local infertility world. We believe these are some of the best of the best and hope these options serve your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being as you navigate this tricky path.

Most importantly, we want you to know you are not alone. And you most certainly are not broken. We hope the people, places, and things below can help remind you of that.

Sending big hugs,

Steffanie Marshall + Jesse Sutherland

We hope this is a well-rounded list that helps you feel like you have options to explore. What we DO NOT want you to think is that you need to be doing more than what you’re likely already doing. There are plenty of people “out in the wild” who we’re sure have already made you feel that way. This journey is full of twists and turns and roadblocks. So, if anything, we want you to feel like you have a roadmap full of alternative routes or additional pit-stops, where needed. 

At the very least, we hope you’ll join us in our Infertility & Loss group and know you have a whole community of people who are willing and wanting to lift you up and walk alongside you. 

Sending love and light to each and every one of you.

Steffanie + Jesse
