After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a BA in communication, Heather R. Huhman became a public relations and marketing expert, specializing in media relations, content marketing, and social media.
Once Heather and her husband developed their careers enough to feel financially solvent, they decided it was time to start building their family. Unfortunately, the journey to motherhood was long and traumatic.
In five years, Heather endured seven IVF cycles, four miscarriages, and stillborn twins before finally giving birth to her daughter Aurora prematurely in January 2016.
Inspired by her own painful experience with infertility and pregnancy loss, Heather launched a twice weekly podcast called Beat Infertility in June 2015. The show features both infertility warriors and fertility experts to empower listeners to educate themselves and become their own self-advocates.
In August 2018, she closed her public relations agency and became an infertility coach. She now helps individuals and couples navigate the complicated world of fertility treatments and other paths to parenthood.
She resides in the Washington, DC, area with her husband, daughter, and their two cats, Hex and Sox.
