Work With Me

THE BACKUP PLAN follows my journey from choosing to have a baby on my own, asking my gay best friend to donate sperm, shifting towards IVF treatment, and eventually motherhood. 

The project in podcast form, premiering in August 2023 in the Top 10 Kids & Family podcasts on Apple Podcasts and shifted to regular YouTube episodes in March 2024.

THE BACKUP PLAN documents my latest conception updates, but also features interviews with experts in the field and individuals that are going their own way and are proud of it.

Meredith was made for this! Her openness and wit are something to be admired.


Meredith provides a charismatic, candid, and honest experience on an alternative path to motherhood…If you are looking to become a parent on your own terms – this is the podcast for you!


So relatable – cannot wait for more to come. Just love you and your voice. What you have to say is important. Will be following along x


This is my new favorite podcast. Meredith is candid, witty, and inspiring. There is not enough representation for alternative paths to parenthood and I’m so thankful she’s sharing her journey with the world. I can’t wait to hear more.


I love love LOVE this podcast! Even though our conception journeys are/were so vastly different, it is so relatable…I can’t wait to continue to follow this journey and wish nothing for the best for her.

Love to see women carving their own path


I was addicted from the first podcast. Thank you for providing a much needed resource.


Such a great and fun listen. I don’t even want kids, but I love hearing Meredith’s story and guests on the show. As a millennial I feel like it makes you think about life, beliefs, and how we’re raised to believe life should go a certain way. Witty, intelligent, and fun!
