I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new voices to share.
This Is How I Cope With Recurrent Miscarriage – In this post, Kimberly Miller recounts her recurrent miscarriage experience and suggests things that can help when women are going through something similar. It is very honest and heartfelt. While it may not be exactly what others might experience (she did have one living child before the multiple miscarriages), it is definitely relatable, and the suggestions are good.
It Took 7 Miscarriages, 10 IVF Cycles, 9 Years, and Nearly $200,000 to Solve My Fertility Issues – This is a Marie Claire article about one woman’s journey through IVF that brought her to Russia. It’s an interesting story, though it is a bit longer than other posts I share.
IVF is 40, Untold Stories Cast Milestone in New Light – I have followed this blog for a while. It has been both informative and uplifting for me. This particular post is about how much of the IVF procedure and outcomes aren’t talked about. I know that there is an assumption that IVF is a cureall to infertility, though expensive. But there no outcome is guaranteed, and this post gives a lot of facts and links to more information.
If you have never experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I can guarantee there is someone in your life who has. While the above stories may not be the same experiences for everyone, they can definitely open that window to more understanding and empathy for what everyone goes through. And for those of you who are in the midst of these unknowns or losses, you are not alone. May these words uplift and encourage you today.
