An IVF Journey Book Talk, LIVE with author Brett Russo

On Wednesday evening January 27th, MLFEd founder Nicole Didizian had the opportunity to host a live book talk with bestselling author Brett Russo.

Brett’s book “The Underwear In My Shoe: My Journey Through IVF, Unfiltered” was released at the end of 2020 and has been a source of comfort and support to women undergoing their own infertility journey ever since. With the pandemic making the isolating experience of infertility and/or IVF feel that much more lonely, Brett’s story meets women where they are on their path to parenthood and provides a sense of hope.

Viewers shared:

  • “Brett was great! Brought tears to my eyes!”
  • “Thank you for this! It was a wonderful talk and so heartfelt!”
  • “I could relate so much to what Brett said…it truly was the hardest thing I had ever been through. I really appreciated hearing her experience.”
  • “I found the talk to be so insightful and really helpful. There’s a lot of fear…hearing from someone that has gone through it (through many cycles, too) provided a much needed level of comfort.”
