Hi guys. Tamara here. Did you know that up to 15% of couples experience infertility?
I’ll bet that if I asked if anyone close to you had ever dealt with infertility you would say yes. As common as infertility is, and even though taboos around it are dissipating, it can still be very hard to know what to say to a friend with infertility if you have never experienced it yourself.
I tried for 7 years to have my beautiful son. In that time I watched my friends have their first, second, and even third children while I longed for my first. It was an extremely difficult time of my life and I know all too well how much well-intentioned, but misguided words from loved ones can sting.
I’m here today to help you navigate this delicate subject and offer some advice on what to say to a friend with infertility (and definitely what not say).
