Hi 👋 Marc here. As the co-founder of Mosie Baby and the only man on our small team, I have lots to say when it comes to heterosexual cisgendered men and trying to conceive. But today I have a simple message for “dudes”: we’re here for you too, especially in this crazy time. When Maureen and I embarked on this journey, we never could have anticipated the amount of direct interaction we’d have with our community. It’s a privilege that we’re continuously humbled by. And frankly, it’s f*cking great.
For me some of the most gratifying exchanges have been with men that reach out with questions, frustrations, or simply to let us know that Mosie helped them get across the finish line to conception. It’s a BIG DEAL. And our small team applauds you guys for making yourselves vulnerable and being fearless. We live in a culture of toxic masculinity where men are supposed to be strong, stoic and yes...silent when it comes to TTC. We’re doing our best to erase this definition of masculinity and replace it with being fearless, industrious, and knowledgeable about achieving your goals in life.
So if you’re a man or you know a man that could use some support in the TTC space, reach out. We’re happy to provide any insight we can or just be an ear if you need to vent. And if Mosie helped you reach your goal of starting a family, I hope you're feeling proud because you were industrious enough to think outside the box. And we hope you’ll move the conversation forward allowing like-minded others to find hope and inspiration from your bold journey. In the meantime, don’t lose hope and absolutely reach out if you need support on your journey.
