Day Four of National Infertility Awareness Week
Surround yourself with uplifting people
So yesterday we talked about advocating for yourself and what you need and how to get it. It’s a skill to learn to speak up for yourself within one’s power. But what happens when you need someone to speak for you or need coaching on how to maneuver the system of creating your family?
That’s when you broaden your view and team and include professional people to help you move through the journey. Just think, you wouldn’t call a plumber to fix your light switch, would you?
So, my first go-to person is a reproductive endocrinologist. This doctor’s specialty is to get people in the family way… either through IUI, IVF or donor egg or sperm.
It can all be so complicated and confusing, especially when your emotional state isn’t in balance. So create your team… your go-to people. First take an inventory of your team: Your reproductive endocrinologist, your nursing team, your friends or confidantes, and your “fertility coach,” who is your cheerleader. Who do you need and who is fulfilling that need? Make sure you read today’s guest blog by Attorney Amy Demma, who specializes in “Helping Families Come to Be.” She is a wealth of knowledge!
