Mara's Infertility Journey

Sometimes I don't know what to say to bring up the subject of a friend's infertility in order to let them know I'm here to listen if they need to talk about it. Nikki shared some suggestions earlier this week, and Mara Kofoed, author of A Blog About Love, has a whole post dedicated to the topic of friends who have infertility in common, and what one might do in the event of a pregnancy.

Mara's post Friendship and Infertility was helpful to me, as were many of the comments left by readers. One woman suggested we all remember that everyone's feelings are valid, whether they're related to infertility or hardships faced during parenthood. That's something I really struggle with; I want to be able to have my motherhood trials without feeling guilty that there's someone out there who would gladly take them if they came with a baby. Let's all remember that everyone has their different trials, and we all handle things differently.

Mara and her husband Danny are currently undergoing IVF and you can read more of her story HERE.
