From the Blog Vault

During April of last year, Mike and I were so thrilled to introduce our Miracle Baby Benjimin, fittingly the announcement / blog post came out around the same time as Canadian Fertility Awareness Weekwhich this year occurs April 21-27, 2024.

I remember going through the last decade trying to conceive feeling surprised and upset whenever someone who had kids revealed privately to me that they had also struggled to conceive. Because they had never talked about that before. I mean for most that was simply because they didn’t talk about infertility at all.

But to me, in the throws of infertility, it sort of felt disingenuous. Look at all of these families who struggled to conceive but didn’t share or say it was a struggle. That silence is what makes struggling with infertility extra hard—because you feel like you’ve done something wrong or that something is wrong with you because you don’t think or realize that so many others in your life, in your community, in your network, have also struggled (because they don’t talk about it!)

Anyway I thought it was a fitting reflection ahead of CFAW.

There are a few local events happening this CFAW (hosted by some great local clinics—Whole Family Health and Alberta Reproductive Centre) that perhaps you may consider sharing—even if you aren’t aware of someone dealing with infertility in your life, the chance that there is, is very high (1 in 6 Canadian couples have infertility).
