How Do My Patients Want Their Loved Ones To Think About Infertility? By Sonja Kristiansen, MD on October 08, 2009

Every now and then I run across unusually good advice to friends and loved ones of infertility patients. This Q&A by Dr. Miriam Stoppard on UK's Daily Mirror is one such piece.

Titled How can I help my daughter cope with not having children?, Dr. Stoppard's response explains both succinctly and thoughtfully some of the emotions that infertile people experience. She also describes in understandable terms a healthy frame of mind that family and friends can adopt toward loved ones to lend respect to the individual's experience and journey.

This is a nice one to clip and pass around.
