Everything ever said about Uniquely Knitted
Reviews from Program Alumni
My experience with the program was great. This was the first time I had ever done something like this because I was afraid of how others were going to see me once I shared. Boy was I wrong! As soon as we started it was established that this space was safe to share, cry, scream, curse but most importantly to heal! I went in feeling alone and left with a tribe to lean on. So grateful
The Building Resilience Program provided me and my husband with tools to work through our feelings about our infertility journey. Also, I would add it gave us language to better discuss our thoughts with each other.
This program has been such a powerful experience for me. Before joining, I felt really isolated, misunderstood, and unsupported by my closest friends. This course helped me to make sense of some of the “misses” in my relationships and learn skills to better communicate my feelings, needs, and boundaries. It also provided me a community where I feel that I truly belong, where others reminded me that I am worthy regardless of if I have children or not. This has been a huge light for me in a really dark season of life. Thank you!
I am sure you must hear this all the time, but it is true, my experience with the Building Resilience program was life-changing. I was scared and anxious to join, but also desperate to try something different. I was desperate to feel better, even if only slightly. And I hoped that the anxiety I was feeling about stretching so far outside my comfort zone was going to be easier to tolerate than the sadness that was always with me. I was in pain and isolated—not because I did not have social support, and not because I did not have tools–but because I did not have anybody in my life who could see my pain in the way that I (it turns out) needed it to be seen. There is something transformative about sharing space with people who can really see and connect with you, especially around something as difficult and traumatic as infertility.
I joined the first official course of the Building Resilience Program on the heels of two additional support groups with another provider. This program and it’s in-depth topics/coursework/medical professional development was certainly the deepest assessment I’ve experienced thus far. A force for deep introspection and analysis towards the path to healing!
This program helped me to begin to see the layers of isolation I was experiencing and creating through my infertility journey and other parts of my life. This program is wonderful and unique because unlike other support groups you are given tools for identifying, acknowledging, grieving, and healing through the trauma you experienced. My group had people with different stories on different paths and in varying stages of their journey, but this program helped us all relate and hold space for each other. I felt a sense of community and understanding I have not had in years. Jesse and Doug and the team that helped create this program helped me begin my healing journey and made me feel less alone in my journey. I am forever grateful.
It has been a growing experience taking this course. The lessons and workbook were helpful in guiding me on what it means to be resilient. I am incredibly thankful to have gotten to know Doug and Jesse. Very thankful that I have met so many amazing people working through infertility.
Building Resilience provided me with a framework for how to better understand a difficult situation and the tools and people for how to cope with it better.
Completely Life-Changing. An amazing community of people, led by the brilliant Jesse & Doug, who all helped & supported me through this incredible 6 Week Course. I could not have wished for more. It helped me more than I can possibly say.
This course was just what I needed during this infertility journey. It has allowed me to understand and process many of the emotions that I’ve experienced, as well as taught me valuable coping skills. The course is so well written and taught. Doug and Jesse bring so much energy, wisdom, and fun! I would 100% recommend this program!
For me, the Building Resilience program has been exactly what I needed. I wish that this was more widely known so that I could have gone through it early on in my infertility journey, I could have avoided a lot of heartache. The most valuable piece for me was realizing how much I need relationships and how I need to be aware of my needs so that I can get them met in relationship. Infertility has been an incredibly lonely experience for me and I had focused on how my community was failing me instead of focusing on what I needed to do to get my needs met.
My experience with the program was insightful. It has given me tools that will carry me through not only infertility but through life.
This program is absolutely incredible and inspired! I was so nervous to take it and share my story with other people, even though I was so desperate to just find someone who is going through infertility and can relate/understand this experience. It was the therapy and community I was searching for and it’s a huge help and blessing in my life.
