Join us for an informal, supportive discussion with other women who have “been there.” There’s no agenda so come with your questions, concerns, and celebrations to share with the group.


We will meet at 6 PM CT on Tuesday, July 23 to connect, share, and support one another. Bring your questions and fertility journey experiences. (Note this is a schedule change from our typical second Tuesday of the month meeting time due to Shine Bright on July 10. Hoping we get to see you at both events this month!)

This month’s guest speaker is Karianne Wardell. Fueled by her personal fertility struggle, Karianne will share her story of transformation and empowerment as well as one of the tools she embraced during her experience, QiGong. A medical martial art, QiGong can help reduce stress and promotes inner balance. Karianne will teach us more about this practice, its benefits, and offer a series of easy physical movements to practice at home. 


After the talk, we’ll meet as a group for a general discussion, sharing, and supportive conversation. 


Shine Together Conversations are confidential, intimate, and informal gatherings for women facing a family building struggle. We meet to share our experiences, questions, challenges, and celebrations in a casual setting. These events are brought to you for free by Chicagoland nonprofit, Shine Fertility.
