Infertility | What Not to Say

May 25, 2016

If your friend or perhaps family member has shared their infertility struggles with you, it’s likely that you may not know what to say. It’s something very personal and saying the wrong thing can leave your friend feeling worse than she already does. 
So, today I’m sharing a few things to avoid saying in case you are ever left speechless and don’t know how to approach them the next time you see them. Because trust me, I’ve heard A LOT! And I know they don’t have ill intentions, but it doesn’t make them less hurtful. 

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

DON’T to say…

Instead, be there for them, be someone they can talk to and trust. Have conversations that aren’t centered around babies, go out for lunch and have a girl’s day every once in awhile, and don’t forget to check in on them during special days (Mother’s Day, miscarriage date, babies due date.) Be genuinely interested. Also, be understanding if they decide to opt out of baby showers and such, it’s a very emotional time for them. Lastly, put yourself in their shoes. Imagine being told you might not ever be able to conceive, when your only dream is to one day be a mom. 

These are just a few of the comments that I have heard.
