Maya, I have been reading your blog for many years and following along on your journey while going through my own journey to my beautiful son. I wanted to thank you and Noah for telling your story. I have finally been able to watch the movie and you have done a fantastic job. I hope many more people will get to watch it and that it will open their eyes.
Thank you again for giving a voice to all of us.

What a great film! We totally relate to you after our long fertility ordeal. The IF community should feel lucky to have someone like you and Noah, who can document this incredible lonely and difficult journey with such charm. Best luck for the FET.


Ok, just watched your film. It was fantastic. Thank you!


Hi Maya ~ it's been a few years such I checked in on your blog (I have you book marked on my phone!). I found your blog about 3 years ago while on bedrest after a transfer. I think we ended up having pregnancies around the same time, as that transfer ended up being my sweet, almost 3 year old, boy. And now here I am again, FET yesterday hoping to complete our family with a second child. There's a lot in between those two events, but it would take some time to write... I'm so thrilled to see that you've published your documentary. I've taken the day off of work (see, this is our absolute last shot at this, so I'm doing what I can) and I think I'll make some coffee (decaf of course) and take a look at your show. Thanks for being there for me, and keeping me company during this journey.


Thank you for making this film. Though our stories are different, in so many ways I feel like you told our story of infertility. I pretty much cried start to finish. You are very brave to put yourselves out there. Thank you from all of us who have struggled, are struggling, and will struggle to make their family.


Hi Maya, I’ve been following your blog for many years and commented just a couple of times. I found the blog while researching unexplained infertility but luckily things worked out for us very quickly and we’ve had 2 kids since I first started reading your blog. I’ve just watched the film and loved it. And although our journey was super straight forward lots of things in the film really resonated with me. I cried a few times and really enjoyed the narrative and how neat the film is Congratulations to you, Noah and the rest of the team.

You already helped me so much with your blog. You got off the island a couple of years before we did (knock wood -- 20 weeks pregnant now), but I read the whole journey while we were deep in the thick of it, and I felt such kinship with everything you were going through.

We, too, opted for an embryo not genetically related to either of us as our finally successful gambit. And we couldn't be more excited to meet this little guy (who's fluttering around in my abdomen as we speak). I hadn't really heard of embryo donation / donor embryos before reading your blog, and I feel like it helped steer us in our right direction.

So thank you for that, and thank you for this film, which I look forward to watching, though I'm sure it will bring back plenty of horrendous memories. But it wasn't *all* dark, after all, and there's a bright light ahead of us now, and I hope everyone in the world will see this film to at least begin to understand what we really go through.

It's not some rich person's lark, believe you me.

Lots of love and gratitude!


Just finished your movie. Loved it!! It’s funny and just awesome. Wishing you and your family all the best.

I have been reading your blog for years and eagerly awaiting the release of your documentary. I only just started watching but wanted to say I love it so far - I'm laughing, crying and feeling all the feelings right there along with you. Thank you so much for this honest look inside your lives and journey!
