Caro Townsend is a writer, survivor and advocate of all things infertility. After discovering medical science was required to have a family, Caro became fully ensconced in the world of fertility treatments. Multiple IVF cycles, a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy later, she finally became a parent, thanks to a successful frozen embryo transfer. Caro is the creator of one of 2018 and 2019’s top ten UK fertility blogs and her award nominated, The Cuckoo Mama, is an honest, open and compassionate account of her journey to parenthood and beyond. In between freelancing and blogging, she spends her time walking the dog, winging motherhood and working to break the silence which surrounds infertility and miscarriage. You can contact Caro here.
