HELLO FRIENDS!

Welcome to
Beautiful Pieces of Us

We speak directly to the hearts of parents who are undecided on what to do with their frozen embryos and are struggling to move forward. This is a complicated, very personal decision with no right or wrong choice. 

Our desire is to create a loving, supportive community, built on honesty and vulnerability, where we can be real about the difficult circumstances and outcomes surrounding frozen embryo options. Overall, our goal is to guide, support, encourage, empower, and equip one another as we walk this complicated road. Over time, we intend to add additional categories to our blog and discuss all the options available to parents with leftover embryos as more parents are willing to share their experiences and knowledge with us. 

Learn more about each of our categories below!

  • Who has completed their family, made a decision about any leftover embryos, and desires a support system or wishes to support others

WE’RE SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE!

ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR EMBRYOS?

We would love to help.

When you have leftover frozen embryos and you’re struggling with what to do, sometimes it’s difficult to know where you should begin. And, for most of us, taking the first step is the hardest part. We understand and we would love to help. 

We created a guide specifically for this purpose called Leftover Frozen Embryos: Take the First Steps Towards a Resolution (a 10 Step Guide for Your Heart). We’ve personally followed each step in this guide on our own journey – and over time we’ve received discernment, clear direction, and hope.

If you’re ready to start moving towards a resolution with your embryos, we would love to put it in your hands. Kindly fill out the form below to subscribe to our newsletter and get instant access to our 10-Step Guide and the rest of our Free Resource Library. We hope you find it helpful, encouraging, thought-provoking, and full of inspiration for your journey.
