October 19-25 is National Infertility Awareness Week in the US. I want to take this opportunity to thank any- and everyone who has read this blog and given a second thought about the condition that is infertility. It helps to know that we’re not alone. It helps to know that others give a damn.
Take some time this week to thank those who have been supportive of you and your journey through infertility. Let them know how much their support, prayers, and positive words mean to you. As we all know, infertility is a condition that is often not spoken about, so the more people we can get talking about it, the better the chance of infertiles getting the help, information, and support they need and so richly deserve.
For those who are looking for information about infertility, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association is a good place to start. The March of Dimes is another useful site for answers to questions before, during, and after pregnancy. They are the leading organization trying to ensure that every baby gets its nine months, and working to prevent premature births.
