"My Best Friend Is Having My Baby"
Listen now
Listen to part two of Lisa and Sarah's story here.  Lisa Messenger always thought she’d be an entrepreneur, not a mother.  But one day, after 15 years of running multiple businesses including publishing company The Messenger Group and later Collective Hub, Lisa decided it was time to try. But what happened next wasn’t easy.  Over 8 years, Lisa had 16 rounds of IVF and spent over $500,000 trying to conceive. She even came close to adopting.  But it wasn’t until her friend Sarah Megginson offered to help that she had a chance. And now, her baby is due in August…  THE END BITS: With thanks to Lisa Messenger & Sarah Megginson.  Follow their journey here at Mummy At Last  Feedback? We’re listening!
