Last week was infertility awareness week. Mel at Stirrup Queens hosted Project IF. I’ll admit that I have not taken the time to look through these posts, but Julie at A Little Pregnant shared this video from Hannah Wept, Sarah Laughed. It’s pretty powerful.
It’s no secret that we went through primary infertility and multiple losses before I got pregnant with Phoebe. Thanks to the blogging community I received a ton of support during that time. It’s important to know that 1 in 8 couples experience infertility. That means that you likely know other people who’ve also had trouble conceiving. Keiko’s video touches on many of the things that I felt and thought when I was in those trenches. Thanks to my two beautiful children, I no longer feel like infertility defines me, but I never want to forget what we went through to build our family. I hope that I can support those who are still in the trenches with the wisdom of knowing how it feels to be there.
