This morning I had to visit the doctor’s (again). As I waited in the small silent room, I glanced around and found that I was bombarded with pregnancy posters. I sat there with Carrie Bradshaw’s voice in my head asking ‘I couldn’t help but wonder where the posters were for all us women who are being poked and prodded for over nine months because we’re struggling tobring life into the world? Do we not matter? Do we only matter when life is there?’
For all the women in my area, I vow to investigate what support groups are available and get a couple of posters put up to raise awareness of infertility. So, you know you’re not alone. That’s my action for National Infertility Awareness Week (even as a UK woman).
I suppose it’s time I join Infertility Network UK.
