Fibroids & Fertility Coach Gessie Thompson Speaks to Chicago
edited by Kai EL’ Zabar
Fibroid and fertility coach Gessie Thompson is going to be in Chicago Friday April 22, 2016 speaking at the Fertility Faith conference in Oak Brook, IL at the Double Tree Hotel located at 1909 Spring Road, Friday at 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM.
Bestselling Author of Hope Beyond Fibroids: Stories of Miracle Babies and the Journey to Motherhood, New York-based Fibroids & Fertility Coach, and Speaker Gessie Thompson helps women eliminate their Fibroids and Infertility through a transformative holistic approach of spirit, mind, body healing—leveraging coaching, nutrition change, supplements, and medical Qi Gong.
The Women’s Health Empowerment Speaker who travels the world inspiring, educating and empowering women to be Hopeful, Informed and Proactive (H.I.P.) about Fibroids and Infertility believes hopelessness is the sing-most deadly threat facing families battling fibroids and infertility.
She personally battled fibroids for 14 years and underwent five fibroid surgeries—ending in a hysterectomy just this past March. The journey to her miracle baby Nia can be summarized as follows:
10 years of infertility
5 IVF cycles
Gessie’s daughter fighting the fibroids for her life in my womb
Gessie’s heart stopping on the operating table
One 2.5 lb miracle baby
Fibroids & Fertility Coach’s profile titled “My Fertility Journey” was featured in the May 2015 Essence Magazine yielding an overwhelming flow of accolades —with over 33,000 women responding to it on Facebook and over 650 women thanking her for sharing her story because it gave them hope that they too could overcome fibroids and have their miracle babies. It was then that she realized how much women suffer from fibroids silently and became impassioned to become a Fibroids Awareness Advocate.
To that end, she became a spokesperson and board member of The White Dress Project (TWDP)—a non-profit committed to raising awareness and funds for research to fight the fibroids epidemic that plagues an astronomical 80% of black women, 70% of white women and 60% of Hispanic and Asian women by age 50. And, she also wrote her book to provide HOPE by not only sharing her story but also those of 15 other amazing women who fought to bring their babies into the world.
Within six months of the release of her bestselling book Hope Beyond Fibroids: Stories of Miracle Babies and the Journey to Motherhood, she appeared at ESSENCE Festival—the country’s “biggest live event”—in July of 2015. Gessie partnered with Aboriginal Medical Association Naturopathic Drs. Amsu Anpu and Amun Neb to launch the ground-breaking 90-Day Hope Beyond Fibroids Elimination Program to help women eliminate their Fibroids and Infertility through this proven naturopathic program without surgery.
ESSENCE.com named Gessie their #WomanEmpowermentWednesday pick of the week earlier this year. She has shared her message at ESSENCE Festival alongside Real Housewives of Atlanta darling Cynthia Bailey, T. D. Jakes’ MegaFest, Circle of Sisters EXPO, the National Action Network’s inaugural Women’s Summit and more and across various media platforms including FOX, ABC, “NewsOne Now with Roland Martin,” “HuffPost Live,” “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show,” “The Tom Joyner Morning Show,” ARISE TV, “The Frank Ski Morning Show” MadameNoire.com, CoCoFab.com to name a few.
