Have you or anyone you know suffered with infertility? Have you done IVF? Did you wish you had more emotional support along the way? You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess, I’m your host, Yael Trusch. Today’s interview is really special! I have the honor of speaking with a woman, who like many of my guests has taken a difficult, very challenging situation, and turned into an opportunity to help others. I have Sofia Silberman on the show. Sofia is the Founder of threeunder2, now a Foundation for women undergoing IVF. She’s the co-author of a self help manual for women undergoing IVF in Spanish and English. It’ is titled Who the @#$! Am I? Dealing with the emotionally demanding road of IVF, 30 days to feel supported, manage stress and cope with emotions. If this sounds familiar it’s because she’s published this with psychologist, Jael Toledo who has been on the show and this manual follows Jael’s signature manuals… Who the @#$! Am I? And of course, we can’t forget that all of this started with her blog at threeunder2, where she started opening up about her journey with infertility, and offering countless women support.
Today, we talk about Sofia’s journey with infertility. The rocky road in her relationship with G-d, including the mitzvah of mikvah, and the ultimate “reconciliation” and path of spiritual growth that she’s on now. Sofia says, G-d had a very clear plan for her and she was able to listen to His messages and transform her challenge. We discuss, the challenges of those facing IVF, including the very practical topic of finances… The role of the husband, what Sofia has learned throughout this journey, the blessing of motherhood, and more with the absolutely inspiring Sofia Silberman.
