How many of you have seen celebrity couples that seem to effortlessly conceive only to think to yourself, “How is that even possible?!” The answer, to those of us who know about the journey of infertility, is that many get help through assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF. I want to share this recent article.
IVF is much more common than we all realize. At least 8 million babies have been born through IVF.
Your neighborhood friend, a celebrity, and even a family member may have used IVF to conceive and you would have no way of knowing that they needed the extra help- Their children are just as cute. And despite a growing number of celebrities speaking out about infertility recently, many still shy away from sharing their stories to family and friends.
My friendly advice is to let go of any insecurities or guilt about using help to create your family. IVF is much more common than we all realize.
