Lessons Learned In My Fertility Journey
I had the pleasure of being interviewed recently by the lovely Karenna Wood of Your Fertility Hub for her podcast. What started out as an overview of my fertility journey story became a series of lessons I learned along the way:
Lessons of education, self-advocacy, allowing time for grief and rest.
Lessons of acceptance.
Of the importance of support and community.
Lessons around how sharing our stories are incredibly powerful - helping ease loneliness, reduce the stress of this journey, increase awareness of infertility as a medical condition, and extend our access to resources and information.
Lessons on how to manage the upheaval that fertility treatment brings to our lives.
And, most of all, how to live life while struggling to build a family rather than letting that struggle take over our lives.
I hope my story can help you or someone you know. You can listen to the full podcast here.
