Our event is in honor of the Start Healing Together foundation, a nonprofit that supports those experiencing pregnancy loss and infertility. Their members are meant to serve as liaisons and advocates for whomever needs support: parents, grandparents, friends, family members, coworkers, etc.
The goal for the organization is to make workers aware of their rights, to inform employers how to best support their staff, and to direct all parties to helpful resources.
All proceeds will go to The Start Healing Together foundation. Join us and beat the winter blues by supporting our glow-up self care day right in the heart of Philly. We would love your support in our mission of spreading awareness and raising money for a charity so close to our hearts.

Julie is the mother to her angel, Aubrey Rae, who was born still on 9/29/2020 at 39 weeks. After a completely healthy pregnancy, her world was turned upside down when she was told that her daughter no longer had a heart beat because her umbilical cord had gotten wrapped around her neck while she was moving into the birth canal.The hours, days, and months since have changed Julie in a way that words cannot explain. She realized the need to advocate for herself, her daughter, and her family for everything they needed - time off of work, attention from providers, questions relating to what it was that the insurance company was telling her that they needed to pay for. Aubrey’s Advocate, Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on managing the medical bills and administrative tasks relating to a perinatal loss. We will provide a thorough review of your claims, working with your insurance company and employer to exhaust all avenues for financial liability from the parents.
Lynn Polin of Kindred Beginnings is a fertility warrior, advocate, coach, educator, author and mom to two miracle girls. She has a long, complicated, borderline overwhelming family-building story consisting of 10 rounds of IVF over 6 years, a failed foster-to-adopt situation, and a pregnancy loss that almost cost her life. Lynn wanted to openly share the raw and real of an IVF cycle so she and her husband Drew invited cameras to document their entire tenth IVF round in an effort to uncover the hidden truth behind in-vitro fertilization - baseline testing, ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, and frozen embryo transfer - in the 2022 film Inconceivable.
Infertility changed who she was, and how she viewed the world. After 18 years as a third grade educator, Lynn decided to pursue a career as a certified Integrative Fertility Coach and mentor with the mission to help others successfully navigate their own family-building journeys. She co-founded Kindred Beginnings, a family-building support community with a mission to provide validation, support, education and resources for all who are family-building.
