This weekâ€™s link love for the blog is showcasing posts around the blogosphere about a very important subject: infertility. This week is National Infertility Awareness week and we need to give this disease and those couples it affects a voice.
Please read these posts and comment with support and love for these amazing women who were brave enough to share their own stories.
Infertility is a Disease by By Word of Mouth is a beautifully written and honest post aboutÂ one womanâ€™s survival of infertility. You will see that infertility is a disease and not simply something to get over or move past.
Nichole Beaudry’sÂ Donâ€™t Ignore Infertility focuses on secondary infertility and all the ramifications that having a child and then being touched by infertility can have on a couple.
Natalie of Mommy of a Monster and Twins wrote Struggling with Infertility? You Are Not Alone. There Is Support. A post in which she touches on her own struggle with infertility and provides support sources for those who are living with infertility now. It’s a great piece with lots of great information.
Everyday Holds the Possibility of a Miracle’s post Don’t IgnoreÂ is an account of what it is like to be on the other side of infertility. I love the first person account and how she shares with her readers what it felt like for her specifically and helps us to understand the toll infertility takes on a couple and how grateful she is, having just given birth to their first son.
Delilah ofÂ Confessions of a Semi-Domesticated Mama wrote the post The Do’s and Don’ts of Infertility Etiquette. I like this post because it is written for friends and family of those couples who are experiencing infertility and gives direct guidelines as to what we need to do to love and support them in the best way possible, without sticking our foots in our mouths or being insensitive.
