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 raw 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 taboos which surround infertility and miscarriage. You can contact Caro here.

In order to keep challenging her brain and improving her medical science know-how, Caro is currently working with Egg Donation Friends, writing thought provoking articles and summarising medical webinars into, what she hopes are, digestible chunks of understandable information.
The Cuckoo Mama was a shortlisted finalist in the 2018 UK Blog Awards and has been recognised as one of FeedSpot’s 2018 and 2019 Top Ten UK Fertility Blogs. In February 2019, Caro was honoured to be selected as February’s Fertility Blogger of the month by Fertility Smarts.
