Kristen's Biography

Kristen Magnacca is a noted author, coach, motivational speaker and expert on the emotional aspects of infertility and other life challenges.

Advisor, Supporter, and Friend to Women Struggling with Infertility

While there is an ample supply of medical experts who offer advice and information to the millions of women across the nation who experience infertility each year, there are few who can address the mental and emotional crisis known all too well by women who are being medically treated for infertility. Kristen Magnacca, author of Girlfriend to Girlfriend: A Fertility Companion (First Books Library, 2000) and the award-winning Love & Infertility: Survival Strategies for Balancing Infertility, Marriage and Life (LifeLine Press, 2004), is the advisor, supporter, and friend infertile women need. Love and Infertility is the recipient of the Hope Award, Best Book, Coping, from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.

Her Work to Raise Awareness for Fertility Research and Holistic Treatment

Kristen Magnacca has served as an expert on the emotional aspects of infertility, testifying before the US Senate in the spring of 2000 about the importance of government funding for fertility research and holistic treatment. She has been highlighted in national publications and broadcast media including NBC’s The Today Show, Woman’s World magazine, PBS’ Health Week and The Boston Globe. She also is a former board member and volunteer for RESOLVE of New England.

Helping Women Make the Transition to Finding their True Purpose

Kristen has found her true purpose in helping other women successfully make these transitions. Her infertility challenges to conceive her two children were what initially inspired her. She learned that she could impart her hard-earned wisdom to others -- no matter what their issues were -- by developing systems, strategies and tactics that could be easily shared through her books, CDs, coaching sessions and workshops. 

What Her Clients Say

“It was a true pleasure to have the opportunity to connect with Kristen during The Mind Belly Connection Fertility and Wellness Summit, as Love and Infertility had such a huge impact on me during my own fertility journey. Kristen really teaches us that big shifts can happen through simple changes. Starting each day by saying "THANK YOU". Wow, what a different way to begin the day; what a different energy to step in to each day with.”

Molly Nichols
Founder and CEO
The Mind Belly Connection

“Kristen so wonderfully shares her journey and emotions, which has enabled me to better understand and assist my patients through this process.”

Dr. Robert Kiltz
Founder, CNY Fertility Center

“We have been on this journey for three years now and … I used to have very high highs and very low lows. But now, because of the strategies I have learned from you, I am able to live on a little more even keel. My husband has seen a vast improvement in my attitude and our relationship is stronger than ever.”

Julie & Fred

“Each week I spoke with Kristen we discussed my new revelations and how they fit into my current life. I will always be working through life’s little challenges, but with the coaching I received from Kristen Magnacca those little challenges won’t be so gigantic. I am very grateful I worked with Kristen.”

Dan O’Rourke
Founder, NRG BAR

I don't know if you remember me, but we met last year at a conference last year. I just realized that I never told you the great news.

I ended up having two beautiful, sweet and very healthy twin boys.

Just wanted to thank you for the extra support and share with you a story that shows that there are silver linings out there.
