Let’s Wish Happy Mother’s Day, To The Sister Still Fighting To Be One.


Mother’s Day. It’s not just the day of the year couples with infertility dread, but it’s weeks running up to it as well. Weeks of endless photos, ads at the mall, cards, commercials and total bombardment on social media. A daily emotional trigger of what they don’t have yet. Or had and then painfully lost…Sometimes, multiple times.

We don’t have a word for when someone goes through fertility treatments like IVF or IUI and it ‘fails’. The loss of  an emby baby is just as real and painful and devastating. One thing is for certain, the love you have is instant, from the moment your emby baby is inside of you. It’s unconditional love.

You are a Mother.  

I want to wish all sisters still fighting infertility, a Happy Mother’s Day, then I want to sincerely apologize. I’m sorry you have to endure this fight. I’m sorry because it’s not fair. I’m so sorry this is happening to you. You don’t deserve this. No one does. I want you to know we see your loss. We validate your feelings. And more than anything , we acknowledge your precious emby baby’s life. It’s not just a ‘failed cycle’, it was your baby.

You are a Mother.

You are a mother because you would do anything for that emby baby. You are a mother because you are the most unselfish woman I know. Every single day you are putting your one day baby before yourself. Not many know sacrifice on this level. I know some days you doubt this process and lose all hope and faith and want to quit. Who would blame you? You’ve felt loss and disappointment on levels you never knew one could heal or come back from.

You are a Mother.

You are a mother because you are doing the best you can, with what you have and are holding on by a single thread. You are a mother because you continue to fight and endure, because you  weren’t given a choice. I want you to know, we know, just because you muster up enough strength to try again, it doesn’t mean any of it get’s easier. So let’s laugh, cry and beautifully acknowledge this part of  the story together. Let’s wish all sisters still trying a Happy Mother’s Day. Let’s honor their emby baby, let’s honor them and let’s honor the incredible strength and courage it took to carry on even, after they were left with empty arms.

Are you looking for some extra support and a wonderful sisterhood of women who just ‘get it’?
