Infertility and Grief

by Ally Hensley

Infertility and grief. ⁣

Is there the perfect formula for when we land at the life-changing junctions? How can we avoid emotional dishevelment wondering if we made the wrong (or right) decision?⁣

I deem myself as practical, self-aware and emotionally efficient yet there was no pamphlet available to help her through the IVF journey. It was an excruciating, strategic and painfully hidden process that I managed to avoid for twenty years, until it was time to ask the question, ‘do I have what it takes to become a mother?’⁣

In this honest interview, I discuss with @fbiradio how I navigated the baby-making road-map, eventually arriving at the decision ‘no’, despite having a willing surrogate and the available funds to have a child. ⁣

1 in 9 couples experience infertility + 1 in 4 couples will experience miscarriage or infant death. ⁣

There are so many of us out there grieving – lets not go it alone. ⁣
