Three women, three stories
In our May print issue, we featured a collection of essays about motherhood. Our writers were moms of all sorts, and we received a lot of positive feedback. We also got this question: "What about moms who've experienced infertility?"
We want to share those stories more. To start, we asked three writers to share their experiences with infertility, miscarriage or both. These are their stories.
In the first, the author shares the five things she wishes she would have known before starting IVF. In the second piece, a woman discusses her choice to become a mother in her 40s. And in the third story, the author shares how having a miscarriage changed her understanding of what an estimated 10 to 25 percent of all pregnancies experience.
Read on and thanks to everyone who shared their feedback with us.
