As we begin to wrap up National Infertility Awareness Week, I wanted to share a few great resources from others bloggers!
In Due Time – Caroline always has amazing posts – and has kept them coming all week! In fact, she has an awesome infertility-story-telling blogger link up happening today, head on over! But one of my favorite posts from the week is “What We Want You To Know About Infertility“. Together with 20+ other infertility bloggers, we shared what we want others to know about infertility and the end result is powerful! I encourage you all to not only check it out, but also, take the time to connect up with some of the other bloggers who shared!
Ever Upward – Justine helped launch a #MoreThan1in8 project for the week, bringing faces and stories to the 1 in 8 couples who struggle with infertility. The end result project, Let Us Be Seen, is one of the most powerful few minutes I have seen. THESE are the faces behind the 1’s. Justine, I can’t thank you enough for creating this! (Who spies our faces in there!?) Also, her whole blog has some awesome resources from the week, so check it out!
Not Just A Beauty Blogger – Nikol put all her emotions into this #StartAsking video which empowers women to start asking your doctor the tough questions when given vague answers or questionable information. Her journey has been hard and she has learned herself that by not asking, time and resources slip away. She advocates for patients to research and truly, start asking!
Waiting for Baby Bird – Elisha hit her post “I am Unashamed: Taking Off My Mask to #StartAsking” out of the park. Wooza. Her words left my heart tingly and encouraged me as a Christian and as someone who is struggling with infertility. A must read!
Motherhood Inspired – Lindsay, who runs an online community for mama’s, took time out to feature different infertility stories during NIAW. I have LOVED reading from all of the ladies who have shared. Kate wrote a post called “For the Waiting Mama” that brough tears to my eyes and was so encouraging! Also, yours truly was invited to post and I got to not only share a bit of our story, but also, shared some ways women can help support a friend going through infertility. You can read my post here!
This group only scratches the surface on the amazing words being written this week. I’d love for you to share in the comments below some of your favorite posts you have read this week! I am eager and excited to see what has been going on during #NIAW. Comment below!
