The blog, RH Reality Check, most often focuses on political hot buttons in the reproductive health arena. But in this touching blogpost by writer and activist Robin Marty, we see how deeply intimate the infertility experience can be.
Regardless of her profession and whatever image she must present in that world, a woman who struggles to have a baby has a richly secret identity, too. Here, the writer discusses what it's like to interact with a relatively fertile world when your interior is crying out with longing.
As National Infertility Awareness Week approaches, Marty's story is a poignant reminder of the role that sharing with like-minded people, whether online or in person, can play in the life of an infertile woman.
