Mych'Iayla Alexander's bio I was born and raised in Rockford, IL, moving to Brown Deer, WI in my early teenage years. I have a dual Bachelor Degree in Psychology and Spanish and a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling. I have many titles. Among them are wife, mother, bonus mother, daughter, sister, friend, elder, cousin, niece, aunt, teacher, counselor, and I was once called INFERTILE. I am an angel mother as well as a earthly mother and bonus mother (I have step children). I am very active in ministry, with my husband. I struggled with infertility and I have had 3 miscarriages. I’m determined to support, Coach, encourage, love, prayer with/for each woman who has struggled, is struggling with, infertility and pregnancy loss.

I had struggled with infertility for years. My ex husband and I tried for over a year and there was no success. It impacted the marriage and was partly a factor for divorce. My husband and I tried for a little under 2 years and then we stopped. I had tried medications, natural remedies, prayer, and any other things I thought would “get me pregnant.” The 3 miscarriages I had were VERY hard and at different stages in my life. Each May I would fall apart but 2 years ago I made up in my mind that I would use that pain for a purpose. Doesn’t mean I don’t get sad, it just means I channel it differently.

Supernatural Childbirth by Jackie Mize, prayer, journaling, blessing expectant mother’s, allowing my heart to break, and finding my purpose BEFORE my daughter came.
