National Infertility Awareness Week


National Infertility Awareness Week is being held this year from April 19-April 25. This is a time to educate others about infertility and the family building journey, advocate for the infertility community, inspire others with your personal story, and support those who are going through the journey.

This year's theme is "You are Not Alone." 1 in 8 couples of reproductive age are impacted by infertility. This disease can be a very isolating obstacle in many people's lives and just hearing "You are not alone" can help.

Despite the fact that infertility is no longer a current part of my life, it will always be my mission to make other people feel that they have an ally in this journey. If you are struggling with infertility and need someone to talk to, I encourage you to email me at flakymn@hotmail.com. Reach out and find online support as well at www.hannahsprayer.org.

Don't keep this a secret! Speak up and get help!

I am on of those "1-8" people who are considered "infertile". I was told by my doctor over 4 months ago it was impossible to get pregnant with a child. me and my husband tried over a year with no success. Was after that I decided to check with my doctor to see if something was wrong and that is when I got the news. I honestly gave up hope when he said that but my husband kept saying "anything is possible". Feeling so helpless is not fun and having something you wanted for so long stripped from your dreams is a living nightmare. I prayed night after night for what felt like forever because I was so desperate. I am very happy to say that I am now 2 weeks pregnant and things are going great! I am not sure if its the praying or countless things I tried but whatever it was worked! Last thing I tried was this (http://bit.ly/1Ga6a5b) and I feel it is what did the trick but I know god had to of had a part in it! Don't give up ladies as I myself recently found out their is always hope! God bless!
