My Path to Triumph Over Infertility and the Creation of Binto

My Path to Triumph Over Infertility and the Creation of Binto

My journey through the complexities of infertility is not just a story of personal struggle but a testament to the resilience and innovation born from my deepest challenges. As the founder of Binto, I’ve woven my experiences as a registered nurse and IVF fertility specialist together with my own lived experience of infertility to revolutionize women’s reproductive care. Here’s how my battle with infertility became the cornerstone of my mission to transform women’s healthcare.

A Personal Awakening in Healthcare

My career has always been centered around healthcare and wellness, with a strong focus on advocating for women’s reproductive rights. My time at Penn Fertility Care opened my eyes to the significant gaps in our healthcare system, particularly the lack of accessible, comprehensive care for women facing fertility issues, navigating menopause, and everything in between. The emotional and physical burden of infertility on my patients resonated deeply with me, fueling my determination to make a difference. One sentence I heard over and over from my patients was, “No one ever told me about fertility.” This personal connection to their struggles, the clear lack of education around fertility and reproductive health, laid the groundwork for a new vision in women’s health.

The Inspiration Behind Binto

Binto was born out of a need I saw through both my professional lens and personal experiences. This need transcended the clinical aspect of healthcare, touching on a more holistic approach to women’s health. At its heart, Binto represents a movement towards personalized healthcare, blending the best of traditional and holistic medicine to support women at every life stage. My journey through infertility—filled with moments of despair and hope—underscored the importance of a healthcare experience rooted in understanding, support, and empowerment.

Navigating My Own Infertility

After three years of marriage, my husband and I finally decided to start trying to get pregnant in December of 2019. I did all the things! I tracked my cycle, took my Binto supplements, used ovulation test kits, and cut back on alcohol. After three months of trying with no success, I reached out to Dr. Maureen Kelly, an advisor on Binto’s medical board, to see if I could come in for a fertility work-up. Given my knowledge around fertility, I knew that we shouldn’t wait a full 12 months of trying before seeking medical help. We discovered that I have endometriosis.

In June of 2020, I had surgery to remove uterine polyps and we began IUIs. I got pregnant after the second IUI cycle but miscarried at seven weeks. Given the outcome, my husband and I decided to move forward with IVF and pregenetic implantation screening of any embryos. After two rounds of IVF and another miscarriage, we finally transferred an embryo that stuck and we now have two beautiful boys (the second, a surprise when I was preparing to go back in for a potential new round of IVF).

Turning Pain into Purpose

My path through infertility was fraught with challenges but ultimately led to a profound personal victory. It taught me the incredible value of holistic care and the importance of listening to and understanding my body. This victory was not just mine; it illuminated how to help others navigate their health journeys with greater support and less isolation. Binto, for me, is about ensuring that the journey through women’s health issues, especially infertility, is one of connection and hope.

Building Connections, Fostering Change

At its core, Binto is more than just a healthcare platform; it’s a community that thrives on connection, support, and understanding. Sharing my story is not just about opening up about my struggles; it’s about illuminating the often hidden challenges of infertility and offering a hand to those who feel alone. My mission is to transform the narrative around women’s health, seeing our challenges not as barriers but as opportunities to bring about meaningful change and a more empathetic world.

My story, interwoven with the fabric of Binto, transcends my personal fight with infertility. It’s a narrative of empowerment, a call to revolutionize women’s healthcare by marrying personal experience with professional insight. Binto stands as a beacon of support, innovation, and community for women at every stage of their reproductive journey. It’s the embodiment of my journey—a commitment to making a lasting difference in the lives of many.
