Media Exposure for Infertility in Utah

ABC4 Utah did a couple of stories about infertility this week. Again, it was wonderful to see infertility in the news!

The first segment was an overview about infertility and it highlights a couple who is at the beginning of their journey of infertility.

The second segment is about the values of support groups. I enjoyed sitting and visiting with the women from this local RESOLVE Peer-Led Support Group. It was recently created and how great it was to see the camaraderie and friendship that has already formed between these women. They seemed comfortable with one another. It seemed like they were old friends. It was perfect.

We sat and talked for about 1 1/2 hours while the ABC4 crew video taped us (of course you wouldn’t know it based on the 60 seconds of actual footage they used). And, I was reminded why I love talking about infertility with other women. It just feels good to talk, to share, to open up, and to be validated.

Thank you to these remarkable women who shared.
Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it.
Thank you!
