“What’s my purpose in life if I don’t have kids? Hold my beer while I find out.”
That’s a quote by Brigid May of The Fruitless Figtree. Brigid is everything you want from a bestie – she’s angry, vocal, honest, a little bit dark, wants to light things on fire (in her head only!), and she’s a little pissed at Brooklyn 99. Brigid is also a Montessori pre-school teacher, she’s married and infertile – a terrific combination!
From her home in Washington State in the US, Brigid tells us about the challenges of being a teacher to little kids, especially when parents say things like “oh you’ll understand when you have kids”. She’s a cocktail crone (her husband is the cocktail maker) and she loves to post drunk rom-com reviews on Instagram.
Brigid is also a gardener and poet.
Her journey to infertility is pretty normal but with a slight difference in that, when she found out she was infertile and that the next step would be fertility treatment, she opted for wine and sushi instead.
