I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new voices to share.
“Infertility is a silent killer, just like cancer – it eats at your soul, as cancer eats at your body” – Talischa Towsen shares her story on this parent website. She talks about her miscarriages, failed IUIs, even other family members getting pregnant in the midst of their journey. And her story is ongoing, which I think is amazing and so important to share.
Zara Tindall Shares How Suffering A Miscarriage Made Her Relationship With Her Husband Stronger – Zara Tindall is a part of the British Royal Family, so her pregnancies are pretty public. She suffered two miscarriages after her first daughter and then had her second daughter after the miscarriages.

Secondary infertility: When trying for another child is a struggle – A brief, informative synopsis of secondary infertility. I didn’t realize that 11% of couples experience this. It was an interesting read.
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.
