Must watch TED Talk about infertility
Struggling with infertility can feel like a very lonely journey. It might seem that people who already have children do not really understand the battle you are fighting and the sorrow that follows when you have to realize that having a child is not as easy as it should be. Maybe you can recognize some of the feelings described in Camille Preston's TED Talk about infertility.
Many people struggle with infertility
Although you might feel alone on the journey to have children, more people than you probably think struggle with infertility. In fact, 1 out of 8 people in the USA have problems with getting pregnant the “normal” way. In Canada, the number is even higher. Sadly, many people do not open up about their problems to others, which may cause the pain to feel even worse.
