Dear Women Who Have Made It Through the Infertility Struggle,
After years of trying to conceive, you’re finally pregnant. Congratulations!
You’re elated. You’re picking out names. You’re finally in the crib section at Ikea.
But let’s not forget how it feels to be on the other side of the struggle, to be a woman who desperately wants a baby and can’t seem to have one. Remember what it’s like to be in the thick of it.
I know that almost everyone works to be sensitive to those who are hurting, but sometimes, in your joy, you do forget. I swore that I would never be oblivious, but I have been, and I sometimes still am. Occasionally we all need the reminder.
