In an effort to effectively support our families with Infertility, Three Little Birds conducted a confidential voluntary survey for families to provide input regarding their struggles, what was helpful and supportive and how we can support them during this difficult and stressful time. We are seeking to develop a complete support subcommittee focused solely on supporting families who reach out to us for support during their diagnosis, treatment or pregnancy after treatment.
Primary Infertility is a condition of the reproductive system that prevents the conception of children. It affects approximately 10-15% of couples throughout the United States. The diagnosis of infertility is usually given to couples who have been attempting to conceive for at least one year without success. Secondary infertility is the inability to conceive a child after previously given birth.
For many families, struggling with infertility is like living the five stages of grief every single month. Families deny, bargain, get angry, cry and accept, only to get up and try again each month.
