Infertility is a common yet devastating condition you’re all too familiar with. While conceiving a child comes easily to many, it feels impossible for you. Pregnancy announcements are now a source of resentment and baby showers like salt in your wounds. You carry the weight of your shame, pain, and frustration like a boulder on your back, marching on silently in the dark, so no one is the wiser. But you can only march so far before your knees start to buckle under the pressure. You can only hide in shadows so long until you lose sight of everything. I know how you feel; I’ve been there too. I struggled with infertility for over a decade. I, too, wanted to hide. In fact, I did. I hid my struggle from family and friends. I pretended to be happy when my girlfriends announced their pregnancies. I smiled at the baby showers. But, when I got home, the tears fell hard in the quiet of my bathroom. It was only when I told my story of miscarriages, fertility treatments, and loss that I finally felt free. When I opened up to the people around me, the shame and the stigma evaporated. I lived in my truth, and everyone rallied around me. I encourage you to speak your truth, too. I promise that the weight of the boulder will fall. I promise that the sun will shine on you again. I promise that there is hope if you’re willing to reach out your hand. Start a Gift of Parenthood fundraiser and watch the people you love rally around YOU too.
Start A Gift Of Parenthood Fundraiser
With the launch of our new crowdfunding platform, we empower future parents to carve out their own path to parenthood. Users can raise funds for their own fertility treatment, surrogacy, or adoption journey with this unique platform. Additionally, users can fundraise for a loved one or for charity. When I was in the trenches of my own infertility journey, a platform like this would have changed my life. Now, I want to pay it forward.
Using our platform to tell their stories, future parents spread hope and representation that benefits the entire infertility community. By openly discussing infertility, those struggling in silence feel less alone, and slowly, the shame is washed away. Our fundraising tools give future parents the resources they need to break the stigma of infertility, educate others, and raise money for fertility treatments.
I see you hiding, Yes, YOU. You’re struggling with infertility in silence, trying not to deal with it. I am here to tell you that… it’s time to DEAL WITH IT. Wallowing won’t get you where you want to be, trust me I know. Stand up for yourself, your dreams, and your future family. Start a fundraiser now… like right now.
