Don’t Say This to Women Who Struggle to Get Pregnant

Women who struggle with fertility are giving a pep talk or unsolicited advice, but little support.

Again, I am fortunate. You can read how much in this post. But, not all couples have it easy when trying to make a baby.

Many women talk to me about their love, dating and relationship woes; now that I am pregnant women who struggle with fertility are confiding in me as well.

I am honored as many women suffer in silence. They won’t share their heartache with many, and when they do, their desire to have children is minimized. They’re giving a pep talk or unsolicited advice, but little support.

Stop worrying! It's all in your head.
