and crafting is
Madebysteffieb was born to try and make my dream of becoming a mother come true as medical issues prevented me from conceiving naturally so private fertility treatment became the only option available to us.
We opened madebysteffieb in 2014 to help us raise funding for our treatment as well as raising awareness about infertility and mental health. You can read my full story in my blog if you would like to know more about this.
Fast-forward a few years and following one failed attempt at IVF in 2017, health issues have now closed the door on another attempt.
Sadly, My dream is now over.
If you have been a follower / supporter all these years, thank you for everything you did for us.
So, it’s just me, my lovely partner Shaun and our beautiful kittens Matt and Rosie. Oh, let’s not forget my little Cutie Dotty and her best friend Fluff the hamster.
Although this door has closed, I still have love around me and now my little business is staying around to contribute towards us creating another life for ourselves and for me to try and find some peace and come to terms with my struggles through infertility and mental health.
My journey through IVF is in the following posts below and featured more in my blog.
