SURVIVING THE ROLLER COASTER OF INFERTILITY
You are wanting something so deeply, and yet, it's not happening. You don't know what to do. The inability to conceive is an incredibly painful experience; one that often comes with a reduced sense of mental, emotional, physical and relational wellbeing. Many areas of your life can be negatively affected by the situation, from relationships with family and friends to work life. You might also feel like you're not yourself anymore after feeling stuck in recurrent bouts of grief, month after month.
1 in 8 couples have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. When you are in it, it can feel discouraging and scary. You've imagined a certain family experience and you no longer know if it will happen. That's devastating. It can feel like no one sees you in your unique pain. You might feel frustrated and tired of hearing insensitive comments which may lead to feeling very alone and isolated in your experience.

My Own Experience
I can relate to your infertility struggles. I know how hard it is to not conceive when you deeply want to have a child. I am now blessed with two beautiful and healthy boys but the journey to get there was not an easy one. I know the struggle first-hand as it took several years and required assisted reproductive technology. It was painful, scary, long, expensive and draining.
