Awareness

Simply put, there is not one area of each of our lives that is NOT affected by infertility.

Balancing the mental, emotional, physical and spirituals part of ourselves is tested sometimes on a minute by minute basis.

Our hormones are jacked up and therefore we react quicker, with more emotion than our usual selves.

When you are feeling the failures of your own body every month;
