Here you should be able to find the link to the SELF Magazine article that I talked about in my previous post.
As a person who is living Child-Free after Infertility, I think it’s extremely important for both the general population and the Infertility Community to be aware that Infertility is a disease that cannot be simply “cured” by Assisted Reproductive Therapy (ART), pregnancy or adoption.
Infertility is a disease that affects the livelihood of 1 in 8 American couples. And most of all, not all Infertility stories are are success stories.
Regardless, I believe that every Infertile — including former Infertiles (those who have now become parents) — should voice their struggles (or past struggles) to others. The only way for Infertility to have a VOICE is to speak about it, loudly & proudly.
We should not be ashamed of what we’ve been through. We should no longer hold our struggles and emotional pain internally.
We should no longer keep our Infertility a secret …
So while you’re on the RESOLVE website, I also encourage you to take the pledge.
