Yesterday marked the start of National Infertility Awareness Week. I have mentioned in passing here on the blog that E and I had some struggles before we were blessed with our little A. I plan to go into more detail about our journey this week in hopes that our story will help others out their going through something similar.
Infertility affects approximately 12% of women in their childbearing years or 1 in 8 couples. To put this into perspective using the 1 in 8 ratio if you have 200 friends on Facebook, 25 of them may be suffering from infertility. Even so, infertility is still a very taboo subject. I will be posting information and resources throughout the week to spread awareness. No one should have to suffer in silence when experiencing infertility or pregnancy loss.
