The path to motherhood is not always smooth. For some it can be downright bumpy. Anticipation and joy can be replaced by fear and frustration and the way forward is not always clear.

Recognising this, the Monash IVF Group have established a new IVF clinic called Bump. BUMP is located in Mosman, Sydney and aims to provide a simplified and affordable service to couples struggling with fertility.

BUMP’s contemporary, streamlined services mean they can deliver IVF treatments at about a third of the cost of larger IVF clinics in Sydney. Learn more about BUMP’s unique service approach here.


The BUMP specialist team can give you the highest quality fertility science in a refreshingly simple way that saves you time, trouble and importantly, money. You do not require a referral for your first appointment and the service is digitally accessible reducing the need for lengthy visits. Medication is also delivered to your door.

In the past 40 years, the Monash IVF Group have assisted 35,000 babies to be born.

Infertility doesn’t have to be a mountain to climb, it can just be a little bump in the road.

What time is it? 5.15am? Bloody hell. I should get up and get some jobs done. I need to pack his lunch. What am I going to stick in his lunch box? Maybe I’ll put in some of the Banana and Date Loaf I made? Is that considered a healthy food choice in day care land? Oh who cares the kid gets cake. I should chop up some strawberries too. I wonder if it’s true that they’re sprayed with a shit storm of chemicals? I’ll wash them.

What will we have for dinner? I have to get meat out of the freezer. I’m so sick of meat. We’ll have chicken.

What’s he going to wear? All his clothes are in the ironing basket. Can I get away without ironing them? Everyone else seems to. I hate ironing. I’ll iron it.

It’s cold. I’ll turn the heater on for a bit and then I can feel guilty about burning coal and killing the environment. What kind of a world are my kids going to live in? I have to switch energy providers, I’m pretty sure they are investing in coal seam gas.

I need to wash up, does my washing liquid have phosphates? I think that’s bad for the environment too, must remember to check next time.

Oh great, he’s saying bloody hell again! Bloody hell, why must they repeat everything? At least he didn’t say fuck. I must stop swearing. I wonder if a swear jar will work? I could use that jar in the cupboard, it would be pretty if I stuck some ribbon to it. Do I have any double sided tape? Must go to Spotlight.

What am I going to do today? I need to write that grant, cook for the play group party, book a hair appointment, cancel the doctors appointment, reschedule the community health appointment. Meh.

I should blog something. Maybe I will after I get that pop up virus off my computer. Pop up viruses are rude.

Did he take himself to the toilet when he got up? I wonder if he peed in the bed? Hope not. It looks like it’s going to rain and it will be hard to get the sheets dry.

I’ll check Facebook. I must ring Apple and see if they can fix my phone. Hopefully they can’t and I can get an iPhone6. I think there is a part in the iPhone that is made from a resource found where the orangutans live. I should not get a new phone. I’m killing orangutans.

Look at all these I Hate Abbott memes. I need to stop following these pages. They are filling my feed. I’m getting depressed. Why are we having a George Bush moment? I’m so embarrassed.

Oh look a rescue puppy! Tag husband. We should really get a fence first. Do I want a dog now? Is it just something else I have to look after? Will we need pet insurance? Probably, but look at the cute!

I suppose I should get out of bed and see if he’s trashing the house. Meh. It’s warm here.

If your friends are anything like mine, you open your Facebook newsfeed to be greeted with images of London pubs, Croatian beaches, Fijian swim-up bars and Balinese bikinis.

The closest I’m likely to get to an exotic destination in the next ten years is my local noodle bar!

To ease my envy, I comfort myself knowing that beer in London pubs is served warm, Croatian beaches are likely infested with blue bottles, people can pee on you while drinking cocktails at a swim up bar and I look like a chicken rolled roast in a bikini.

In saying that, were someone to offer me an overseas trip, I would be all over it like a fat kid with a cupcake!

Turns out my local noodle bar could be the key to getting me that trip. The EatNow Best Eats Awards for 2014 are now open. Vote for your favourite restaurant and you could win the foodie trip of a life time or one of ten $250 EatNow vouchers.
