“Last year, we found out the only real option to have a baby for me is #IVF,” she began, before going on to explain the emotional toll the process has taken on her so far.
“As someone who went in just wanting to freeze embryos until the time was ‘right’ , I’ve grappled with the confusing feelings of the loss of any ‘normality’ of this process.
“Feeling like the universe was telling me I’m not meant to be a mother, the guilt of letting Ben down, the ‘but am I even ready’ thoughts, feeling physically broken. Etc.”
She went on to add: “Yesterday we found out that our first round of IVF resulted in nothing viable, & the sense of failure is overwhelming. The toll on the mind & body, the injections, the cost..”
In a show of hope for this new chapter, Erin continued by saying: “But I’m so grateful for modern medicine - it will take a village to create this baby, let alone raise it.”
“The fact that IVF is even a possibility blows my mind..I know it’s only the very beginning of this journey, & I thought about only sharing it when it was over, if ever.
“But maybe that’s not really the point - all I’ve done is seek out information/podcasts/real life accounts from others going through this. So here we are,” she said.
Erin signed off her post by explaining that she was sharing her journey with the hope of making others who are going through the same thing feel heard and seen.
Her post garnered a wave of support from friends and fans who sent their love to Erin in the comments section.
Supporting her through this is also her husband Ben, who Erin recently credited with staying by her side through “the hard times, & the good.”
The pair have been married for just over a year now, after tying the knot in a lavish Byron Bay ceremony last February.
