Get to Know Us

Meet Co.

 

If you’re trying to get pregnant, you’re probably feeling a lot of things: lonely, confused, sad, hormonal, hungry (blame it on the hormones)—and did we mention confused?

 

Real talk: Co can’t make you (or your loved one) get pregnant faster. But we can make the waiting less lonely, less confusing, and (hopefully) a little lighter.

 

Our name and our mission were inspired by the things that we found to be missing from the fertility world.

 

Compassionate. Comprehensive. Connected.

Hi, I’m Arielle.

I founded Co in the midst of my own fertility struggles. I had a great doctor and a clinic I loved, but—as you know—that just doesn’t cut it.

 

Because when you’re a member of this club, you’ve got questions. Sometimes those questions are too embarrassing to ask. Sometimes they feel stupid. Sometimes they happen in the middle of the night, or when you’re four margaritas deep. (Hey, no judgment here.)

 

The point is: when your whole life is in a holding pattern, having the right answers, right now, matters. A lot.

 

When I went looking for answers online, I found some. But they weren’t credible, or they were out of touch, or they were completely overwhelming. (Or D: all of the above.)

 

So I started Co: the answer to every fertility-related question—all in one place, curated by people who have been there, done are doing that.
