Infertility Awareness Week
Infertility is the inability to perform reproduction as a result of impairments to the reproductive system for various reasons.
Impaired fecundity (the inability to have a child) affects 6.7 million women in the U.S., however, infertility affects both men and women equally.
1 in 8 infertile couples are of reproductive age so this is an issue many people are dealing with, but fail to discuss.
With those obstacles in mind, are options, there are now many ways to build a family but I empathize with those who long to bear children.
Some people want a new car,
When someone deserving, struggling with fertility only wants one thing... a baby!
Please be mindful that some may want what others take for granted.
Be kind & thoughtful always.
