Helping women with chronic illnesses

Mother’s Day Message

Struggling with infertility and feeling anxiety about Mother’s Day? You are not alone.

You may find this the RESOLVE page (which includes tips on coping with holidays) helpful:

In the past few days, I have noticed some of the posts here on my blog from prior Mother’s Days have been receiving quite a few visitors. I will include a couple of them here for anyone who may find them helpful. It’s important for those struggling with infertility to know they are not alone in their struggle:

If you are struggling with infertility, miscarriage or pregnancy loss please know that however isolated you may feel, you are not alone. There are many others dealing with similar struggles. While this may not be any consolation, some people find it helpful to know that they are not alone.

If you know someone who is struggling with these issues, please be aware that today may be especially challenging. Whether the person/couple you know needs space, a listening ear, or just simply to know that you sincerely care will depend on the person/couple and the situation. What is most helpful to one person will be different for another.

If you have a friend or loved one who is struggling with these issues, please try to be there for them in whatever way you can. If you’re unsure of how to support the person/couple, ask what you can do to be supportive (if anything). If you’re asked to give space (a.k.a. to do nothing right now), do that. If you are asked to support in some other way, please do what you can to do so. Your friend or loved one will likely appreciate your efforts to be compassionate and supportive.

My thoughts go out to everyone who is struggling with this holiday. Please know that there are many people who do care.
