Thriving Thursday: Overcoming the Shame of Infertility

October 15, 2020

Today, Nkechi and Gaby shared their experiences on a deep topic, thriving through infertility. This subject is rarely spoken about but it affects quite a number of people.

Nkechi shares her personal story around her journey with infertility and undergoing fertility treatments and Gaby also shares her experience with fertility treatments as she was struggling to get her second child.

Nkechi talks about how it’s a very lonely experience. She said in retrospect, if she could go back in time, she would choose to do it differently, open up more and speak with her partner and people that are going through a similar journey. 

Gaby advises that if one has a friend going through this Infertility journey that it is important to listen, remind them that you care and that you are there for them. And try not say offensive things to the person actually going through this struggle.

Nkechi also mentioned that this should be a reminder to anyone going through this journey, that they are not alone. They also alluded that they are other options open to couples out there who are trying to have children!

Take a listen as this is such an amazing episode!
