Experiencing infertility was, without a doubt, the toughest ordeal I have ever faced. I was ashamed. I felt alone. There was guilt, grief, physical and mental pain and, at times, I couldn’t breathe with the weight of desperation suffocating me.
It’s known that infertility currently affects one in six couples in the UK and there are, a staggering, five million miracle beings, worldwide, born after successful IVF treatment.
However, IVF isn’t a given, it doesn’t always work and often takes numerous attempts to conceive and then carry a baby to term.
For those of you currently facing infertility, IVF and involuntary childlessness, please know I’m here. No judgement. No taboo. Just someone who has been there and can lend an ear.
Infertility sucks. It’s real and it’s tough but please know you’re not alone. There are blogs and forums and charities to help and support.
Together we can break the taboo surrounding infertility and miscarriage.
