Rock Your Response

to intrusive questions and unsolicited advice.

Feel prepared and confident

responding to unwelcome comments

about your fertility or parental status.

You used to enjoy social situations, but disappointing interactions have you turning down invites.

Co-workers, friends, your dentist, even strangers at the grocery store suddenly have a lot of questions about your fertility status. Everyone seems to have a hot take on your situation and an annoying amount of sentences start with, “Have you tried…?”


If you’re childless or experiencing infertility, these interactions can leave you feeling everything from annoyance to dread. You aren’t sure how to respond, how much to disclose, or how to protect your emotions.

You remember when small talk felt easy and social interactions left you feeling connected.


I wish I had a magic wand to stop people from asking you intrusive questions and giving unsolicited advice about your fertility or parental status. I don’t. 


But, I can offer guidance in exploring common scenarios and crafting a few go-to responses to help you feel confident and prepared the next time you find yourself in an awkward social situation.

So you can feel more connected to those who get it, and protect your heart from those who don't.

Imagine what it would be like if...

I created the Rock Your Response mini-course to help you take your power back.

Hi, I'm Katy!

My four-year infertility journey ended with a hysterectomy in 2017. I spent years feeling unsure of how to respond to questions or advice about my fertility and parental status. I've cried in public and at work, overshared and undershared, and straight up lied to get conversations to stop.

A turning point for me was working with my therapist to craft go-to responses for times I found myself unsure of what to say. Since then, I've tested responses over time and stuck with the ones that leave me feeling the best.

I realize there's no magic response that works in every situation, so I created a strategy that takes into consideration who I'm talking to, where I'm at physically, how I'm feeling emotionally, and what I see as the desired outcome to the conversation. This helps me feel confident navigating a variety of social situations. I created this mini-course hoping it will do the same for you!

I founded Chasing Creation in 2018 to provide support, resources and community to those who, like me, are involuntarily childless.

In addition to founding Chasing Creation, I hold a Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Georgia, with an emphasis in community empowerment and program development.

I'm not alone. I hate the question 'Do you have kids?' and now I
feel more confident in how to respond."
"I loved this mini course! The tips around these tough social situations gave me not one, but like 10 pre-planned responses to difficult questions. Plus it's ME centered versus feeling like I need to cater to other peoples' needs. Big win, great course, so helpful."

You might be thinking...

I'm worried that conversations about my fertility or parental status will never get easier.

You’re not alone, friend. One of the most common questions I’m asked is how to respond to intrusive questions and unsolicited advice.

These are really difficult conversations to have. They can be triggering and bring our grief to the surface.

These are normal responses. However, I do think with some thoughtful preparation and practice, these conversations can get easier. I’d like to be your guide as you craft and try out new ways of responding.

I’ve been in your shoes. Over time, I’ve gained confidence in being able to respond in ways that honor how I’m feeling and the desired outcome for these interactions. In this mini-course, I’ve put everything I’ve learned into a framework that I’m excited to share with you.

Rock Your Response



Lesson One


In this lesson, we'll explore how different situational factors may influence how you want to respond. Including: who you're talking with; where you're at physically; and your current emotional state. Taking these factors into consideration can help you decide which response best fits the scenario and the desired outcome of the interaction.

Lesson Two


This lesson will guide you in crafting three different responses you can use the next time you are asked intrusive questions or are given unsolicited advice about your fertility or parental status. Each response will be tailored to a desired outcome, including: changing the subject; raising awareness; and creating understanding.
