More about Ariel Taylor
In 2015, she became a surrogate for the first time. she was excited and eager to help a couple become parents but admittedly, didn't know a lot about infertility. Since 2015, she underwent 7 IVF transfers, experienced a miscarriage, had two chemical pregnancies, 1 failed transfer and gave birth to three beautiful little boys in 2017, 2018, and 2021. She learned so much about assisted reproduction and became passionate about advocacy, education, and surrogacy awareness.
In 2018, she decided that she wanted to do more for the fertility community and had a strong desire to fill an empty space in the arena; specialized fertility counseling. She decided to take the leap and return to University for her Bachelor of Social Work and focused her research, advocacy, and placements on all things fertility. Her educational background also includes training in grief counseling and understanding the trauma of miscarriage and infant loss. With all of this education as well as her personal experience, she is proud to support those going through infertility, surrogacy, and those in the postpartum period.
She is familiar with IVF and IUI, embryo adoption, egg retrievals, egg donation and surrogacy and can help you navigate through all of your options. She uses a variety of therapy techniques including talk therapy, CBT, and DBT to work on coping strategies and distress tolerance while providing a safe and judgment-free place to explore the emotions around infertility.
