Katie Ashby (Founder & Lead Singer of The D Day Darlings), details her emotional battle with fertility over a series of 4 episodes to coincide with Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The podcasts will hear her talk about going through IVF, experiencing pregnancy, miscarriage and the ‘Baby Boom’ within The D Day Darlings.

Clinging to her hero Dame Vera Lynn’s words of hope, ‘Keep Smiling Through’ has helped her cope with her fertility battle.


“I’m proud to support Katie on this very personal podcast. I commend her for being so brave and speaking out about her fertility struggles to support other women and couples on a similar journey. So many women go through what can be a truly devastating experience and it’s a subject that women shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about. I was lucky but I have a tremendous amount of empathy and I hope that this podcast will offer comfort and hope to many others on their journey.“
