#NIAW: Infertility Resources

National Infertility Awareness Week at A Royal Daughter

Day One: Finding Purpose in the Waiting

Day Two: Lies Women Believe About Infertility

One of the difficulties that comes with facing infertility is not knowing where to find resources to help you cope with the emotional + mental issues that are a part of the journey. Add to that questions about symptoms, treatment options and cost, and natural alternatives, and you could spend a whole day with a cup of coffee (er, tea) and google. So today I wanted to share helpful resources for couples battling infertility, as well as for friends and family members of infertile couples.

Online Infertility Resources:

AttainFertility.com – I really love Attain Fertility’s facebook community, and their website is helpful too. With helpful information about the causes of infertility, as well as healthy living tips, this website offers a wealth of information as well as community and camaraderie.

Natasha Metzler.com – An almost daily read in my blog roll, Natasha’s blog offers an inside look at the emotional and spiritual journey of infertility. I find so much comfort and encouragement in her words. She has also published a book, A Pain Redeemed, which I highly recommend to those who are in the depths of despair as a result of infertility.

Natural-Fertility-Info.com – This website is a fabulous resource for those looking for natural approaches to enhancing fertility. From natural therapies, to helpful articles about recent studies related to infertility, this website has been very helpful to me as I’ve looked for holistic approaches to fertility.

Naturally Knocked Up.com – This is another helpful website for those who prefer to enhance their fertility the natural way. With a heavy emphasis on eating a healthy diet and green living, this is another one of my go-to online infertility resources.

Resolve.org – Resolve is the National Infertility Association, and their website offers helpful resources like finding an infertility support group, managing the stress of infertility, and  they even have  special section of their website for family and friends.
