The Nobel prize for the inventor of IVF!
Apart from the recognition that this development has touched the lives of millions of people, I am hoping that it can bring a bit of light into the public perception of IF and IVF. To recognize IF as a disease that can strike anyone, that is not our fault (and it’s no use telling us to “just relax”), that there’s no reason to be ashamed. And — when you happily announce yet another pregnancy — please be gentle on us.
I’ve even written a post about this on my real-name blog — not explicitly saying that we’ve been trying to conceive and might need IVF, as I’m not quite ready to be this open with everyone and IVF considerations are several steps and doctor’s appointments away anyway, but at least to raise awareness. Let’s see what happens.
