What not to say to people with fertility problems

images-2Here’s an article from the Huffington Posby Shafali Talisa Arya that you may want to share with friends and family who don’t know quite how to deal with your fertility problems… It’s a list of some things not to say and covers many that you will most certainly have seen before – the relax and stop thinking about it one, and the why don’t you just adopt, it could be worse and the people who seem to think it is helpful to tell you how very fertile they are…

I wish it talked about fertility problems rather than infertility (most of us are really sub-fertile rather than infertile) but I hope it makes people think a little more about some of the potentially hurtful things they say. Of course, it’s always difficult to get it right and no one can always hit the correct tone with someone else when they are in the midst of a challenging situation – but I love the closing thought that people with fertility problems don’t need advice, they need support… So true!
