      National Infertility Awareness Week ♥

      This week is a special week for us here at Addison Bay.  We are celebrating and honoring women and families who have struggled with Infertility.  From April 21st to April 29th is National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), with the goal of this week being to bring awareness and light to infertility and help couples and families who have been affected by infertility.  This holds a special place in our hearts because our Founder and CEO, Marguerite Adzick, has had an extremely personal journey with infertility. 


      Did you know that AB came from successful fertility treatments? I had the idea for Addison Bay for several years prior to launching the company in 2018. For two years prior to starting AB, I was trying to get pregnant and going through fertility treatments. Hundreds of doctors appointments and several rounds of IVF later, I got pregnant with my beautiful daughter. Once I made it to the second trimester, I immediately felt a rush of relief and excitement. Fertility treatments are a time intensive process and I finally felt like I had the time and energy to put towards building Addison Bay. While most women may settle into their pregnancy, I chose to use the newfound time to start writing a business plan and pitching the idea to investors and get the company off of the ground. I resigned from a job that I loved at six months pregnant - I knew that I had to go for it and, ironically, it felt like the right timing. Addison Bay would never exist without my beautiful daughter and I’ve loved raising my two babies (Annie and Addison Bay) together. 


      Here at AB, we want to shed light on some facts and myths surrounding infertility to support  and educate our community.  In most basic terms, infertility refers to the inability for a woman and or couple to get pregnant after at least a year of trying.  1 in 8 couples struggle with getting pregnant and or sustaining a pregnancy.  There are a combination of reasons for this, some attributed to the female partner, some to the male partner and in some cases both partners.  In many cases there is  medical intervention that can help to begin the pregnancy such as In Vitro Fertilization but in other cases some women remain unable to get pregnant and pursue other routes in having children such as adoption or surrogate mothers.  


      The National Infertility Association has created amazing resources for families struggling with infertility and created amazing campaigns advocating for this week.  Now time for some fun facts!  The symbol for Infertility awareness has become a Pineapple representing women struggling with this.  You can find this symbol on infertility blogs, instagrams, facebook feeds, this symbol helps to unite women going  through this.  The pink and blue ribbons together represent Infertility and also infant loss awareness.  While this is a terrible issues that affects millions of women each year, there have been many incredible and strong communities built around this bringing women together, that is what we like to see #GirlPower! 


      So what can you do to help?  Support your loved ones, if you have friends or family members that you know are going through infertility  be there to support them whether it is a shoulder to cry on or baking some cookies, getting out and going for a walk, doing some retail therapy, they will for sure appreciate it. 
      From the AB Team, we are here for you and honor and celebrate anyone affected by this.  We hope that Marghi’s story can inspire and bring hope to others.

      April AB Girl of the Month...Rosalie Hunter ♥

      April AB Girl of the Month...Rosalie Hunter ♥

      We’re so excited to introduce April’s Girl of the Month …. Rosalie Hunter! By profession she is a wealth advisor, outside of her job Rosalie describes herself as a Mom, a friend, an athlete, a colleague, and a fighter. Although from the outside it can seem like she’s had a pretty smooth road, Rosalie would like people to know that she has worked incredibly hard for everything she’s achieved both personally and professionally. She says, “The truth is that I've faced significant challenges throughout my life, but I keep my chin up,  work really hard and always keep my eye on the prize.” Her biggest accomplishment this far is seeing her son and daughter grow up to become really good, kind hearted, and hard working people. Out of everything she has done, she is the most proud of her children.  

      In her free time Rosalie LOVES to be active and exercise. Her favorite workouts happen on days when she has time to do cardio along with strength/core. Rosalie describes the ideal workout day: “My cardio would be a 30-45 minute run or spin class, followed by 30-45 minutes of a strength/core workout with a trainer. This combo gives me a sense of accomplishment because I know I’ve worked hard from head to toe!” 

      Like a true AB girl, Rosalie is always on the go. Her typical day consists of going to Balance in Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill for a workout, then grabbing her morning Dunkin Donuts as she rushes into the office. After a busy day at work Rosalie does her best to get in an early evening walk at home before she settles in to relax for the evening. With such a strict schedule Rosalie allows herself to indulge a little bit every once in a while. Her favorite indulgences are everything bagels with cream cheese, peanut butter vanilla ice cream, and wine (of course)!

      Especially in these times of social distancing Rosalie prioritizes fashion, comfort, and fun statement accessories in her modern wardrobe. According to Rosalie, “I LOVE everything AB and I wear AB gear all the time. During this time of social distancing AB leggings, an AB tee or a fashionable AB sweatshirt is my go to work-from-home uniform!” We might be biased, but Rosalie definitely has incredible WFH outfits. 

      To Rosalie being an AB girl means staying on top of her game in everything she does and helping others do the same. It means having a “can do” attitude and remembering that the glass is always half full! Rosalie’s advice to young girls is to invest in themselves. She says “make self care a priority (both physical and mental) and be comfortable with who you are. You can’t help or cheer on others unless you feel good about yourself.”
