Continuing the Conversation

I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new posts to share.

This Is Why We Chose To Talk About Black Women And Infertility

Black women are less likely to seek out support or medical help when dealing with infertility, even though they are twice as likely to have miscarriages compared to white women.  This Women Magazine article explores this phenomenon and why it’s so important to talk about it and share our stories.

I love when people find ways to tell their story of infertility or loss through other mediums.  There are a few pictures of her art on the page, but if this exhibit ever got closer to me, I would definitely check it out!

Five things not to say to someone who has had a miscarriage

Anytime I find lists like these, I just feel like I have to share them.  I can’t share them enough.  These are still things that I’ve heard people say to me or to other women who have had miscarriages or stillbirths.  This particular article out of Ireland covers a lot in just five statements.

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.

Do you have any posts or articles that have touched you or compelled you to share?
