Superpower: Empowering and equipping families with the tools they need to build a family.
As a six-time IVF “survivor,” mom to three, and the founder of My Fertility Coach, Erin McDaniel is an essential component of the MommaWork working parent support team. Infertility can be one of the most financially and emotionally draining experiences for families, and her work is critical in guiding working parents through the stressors that can come with trying to get pregnant. As a fertility coach, she helps women improve their family building experience by identifying ways to fill the gaps often left by medical expertise and well-intentioned friends and family members.
Her own personal fertility struggle reached a pivotal point after an 8-week miscarriage, 2 failed IUIs, a failed IVF, and a chemical pregnancy. At this stage, she insisted there had to be a better way and sought out acupuncture, emotional support, spiritual practices, an optimistic medical team, and a host of lifestyle changes that helped her to feel healthier, empowered, and encouraged. She now uses her expertise and resources to empower other families.
As one who has “been there” when it comes to a fertility struggle, Erin utilizes this experience, natural empathy, and her expertise in coaching working parents through the fertility process and the fertility industry to help women around the globe improve their fertility journeys. She also educates working parents on the services that provide encouragement and support, practical guidance, identification and reduction of stress points, while teaching positive mindset strategies so they can succeed personally and professionally.
Erin is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation, as well as a certified Freedom Fertility Formula™ provider. Erin resides in Chicago, Illinois with her husband and three children.
