“I really believe in philanthropy and giving back. We give back a portion of every sale to nonprofits that support women and girls to get them educated. I really believe education can change your life, especially if you’re born abroad. And you will never have a chance of going to school because you happen to be born a girl. If you change that girl’s life, you change not just her life, but you change her part of the world.”
– Carol Gavhane
Carol Gavhane is the founder of Asha Blooms, a jewelry brand created to carry the intention to uplift and inspire when we’re going through life’s biggest challenges. In this episode, we talked about how Asha Blooms was created to provide comfort and address challenges around infertility, and ways we can provide solace to those that are quietly struggling and need emotional support on their fertility journey.
She never made jewelry before, with the exception of making some cute little friendship bracelets at summer camp. But a few years ago, she had secondary infertility. She was unable to get pregnant the second time around. Everything about her first baby was so easy. Everything about trying to have her second was extremely difficult. And she tried all of the modalities she could possibly think of to help be successful in her pregnancy. From fertility, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, clean eating support groups prayer, she tried just about anything she could do.
Soon she began to see that in the midst of all these challenges, creating a symbol of possibility was the only tangible piece that felt aligned. Over time, it was more than a good luck charm – it was a true symbol of hope. Through this intentionality and embodying inner strength, she finally was able to have her second child.
