Shelby is a 34-year old IT professional living in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband, dog, and two cats. She developed disordered eating and exercise habits in her mid-20’s and never got a natural period after coming off of birth control to start a family in 2017. In 2018 she was diagnosed with another major infertility condition, and combined with other traumatic life events, she quickly spiraled into a full blown eating disorder and exercise addiction in her early 30’s. After years of unsuccessfully battling her eating disorder, she decided to take one last leap of faith and joined the Food Freedom Fertility Society in January 2021. She immediately found the support she needed in the group and recovered her period in a little over 2 months! She is now expecting a baby girl via a gestational surrogate in May 2022 and is so happy to enter into motherhood with a regular cycle and a new lease on life!
