Please, Do Not Tell Me to Just Relax


“Just relax, you’ll get pregnant.”

I can’t count the times I’ve heard that.

“If you already have one child, you know you are fertile and won’t have problems conceiving again.”

Yep, I’ve heard that one too. More times than I can count.

And I’m thrilled that those are just two of the myths being busted during NIAW (National Infertility Awareness Week®), April 24-30.

What is NIAW all about and what does it mean for you? Join me after the jump…

NIAW is a week dedicated to raising awareness and offering support to the millions of men and women fighting the disease of infertility.

Whether you are pregnant, or struggling to get pregnant, the desire for a baby unites us all.

RESOLVE, the National Infertility Awareness Association, offers 8 ways in which we can help bust a myth about infertility, from adding a twibbon to our Facebook or Twitter pictures to writing a post for our own blogs to sharing our own stories to volunteering for RESOLVE.

Head on over to the RESOLVE website to find 5 other great ways to participate in NIAW.
