The gorgeous Darcy Goddard with her son Atticus (2). Darcy waited a long time to become a mother in part because she was scared of being a single mother. She's LGTB/bisexual and found that she spent a lot of time single or in relationships she knew weren't meant to last. She made a cross country move and found another person within the local LGBT community whom she fell in love with and wanted to start a family with. They got married and began trying to conceive with assistive reproductive technology. Her partner had a vasectomy in a previous relationship so they used a genetic donor and IUI. Her body really wanted to get pregnant so she had several chemical pregnancies and early miscarriages before conceiving Atticus. On her sixth IUI attempt, third with medicine, Atticus was conceived. Her pregnancy progressed very well and she delivered via scheduled cesarean due to concerns from previous uterine fibroid removals. Darcy initiated breastfeeding but faced some issues with supply and getting Atticus to gain weight. She took two cycles of Reglan and began exclusively pumping and supplementing at 9 weeks and continued until he was 6 months old. Just before Atticus' first birthday she became a single mother. It's been a challenge but is also wonderful and perhaps not as scary as she'd feared. Darcy made a New Year's Resolution this year to do something every month that made her feel brave. We are honored that her participation in this movement was her brave endeavor for April.
