More On Fertility Stories

March 11th, 2014 by Aubri


I’ve been contacted by several of you already letting me know you will be working on responses, thank you ladies. This “discussion” will be a work in progress so whenever you can send them I’m happy to have them!

I’ve been trying to flesh out what exactly I want this to be. As I’ve already stated, my first intention is to raise awareness on the whole issue and get us “talking” about how we all are handling the gift of fertility or dealing with the pain of infertility. Or for sharing the wisdom from those of you that are past childbearing years.

I want this to be helpful in knowing where other women are in their fertility. But I also want to understand the whys surrounding the issue. Why do we make (or have we made) the choices we do?

That seems to be at the core of the pain and struggle for all of us. Whether you’re conceiving babies or preventing babies, the whys are important and worth discussing.

I want this to be an opportunity for some real reflection on the topic. Not just hearing the same message we always do, “your body your choice” and no further. I think Fertility deserves a better examination than that.

I want to be able to push without offending. THAT’S HARD on any topic. I’m not sure it’s possible, but I want to try. I don’t have an agenda but from what I hear over and over again is that we just don’t really think about why we do something. I wish that wouldn’t be the case.

So, if you’re willing, I’d like to take the surface issue deeper. That may require more follow up questions. If you’ll permit me, I might treat this like an “interview” with those of you who respond. In that way this will be closer to a dialogue than just your stories.

Maybe what I’d like to come of this is that all of our stories could be put into a book and set down in front of one of our daughters to read through, to ponder and reflect upon.
