Reality of Infertility: Jaclyn Misch from Survivor
For fans of the hit CBS show Survivor, Season 29 runner-up Jaclyn Misch is the definition of bravery. She competed and dominated challenges that would make many of us bow out or buckle. In some ways Jaclyn's "Survivor" journey mirrored her journey with her husband, fellow survivor contestant Jon Misch, as they tried to conceive over the years.
Born with MRKH Syndrome, a condition in which a woman's reproductive system is not fully developed. Jaclyn knew she'd need help to bring a baby into the world, but she didn't expect the tough twists and turns that she and her husband would have along the way.
This episode is a candid look at surrogacy, why Jaclyn has used her voice to spread awareness of MRKH, miscarriage and infertility, and how she's managed to keep hope and resilience alive on and off camera.
