Today is the beginning of National Infertility Awareness Week. If you know someone who is dealing with infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss, I encourage you to send them a quick note this week to let them know you are thinking of them. Try not to offer advice--I can assure you they are getting enough of that already. But simple support can mean the world.
So often, infertility patients feel forgotten. People don't know what to say, so they say nothing, leaving the person feeling that their hardship is unimportant or is being ignored. So this week, if someone has shared their struggle with you, consider taking the time to offer a little extra support. I promise it will be deeply appreciated.
