Are you struggling with infertility? Does every second of your day feel unbearable due to the devastating loss of a child due to a miscarriage, stillbirth, or death of a child shortly after birth? If the answer is "yes", you have come to the right place.
Hello, my name is Michelle Juarez and I would like to share my story with you.
On August 1, 2015 my nephew Elijah N. Ford was born. I was over joyed as I have always longed to be an aunt. Prior to the arrival of my nephew, my sister had two miscarriages, and endured a high-risk pregnancy that put her on bed rest. Despite being three months premature, he was here! Finally, I was going to be an aunt.
On August 12, 2015 my nephew Elijah N. Ford passed away. He was twelve days old. How did I go from planning a baby shower to making funeral arrangements? It was a real life nightmare. The pain and suffering continued long after the funeral. My sister and our family were tormented by what could have been with Elijah. The sight of pregnant women and newborn babies was a cruel and constant reminder. Nothing prepared my sister for the dread Mother's Day would cause, the relentless strain it can put on a intimate relationship, and the well-meaning but insensitive comments from friends and family.
Time passed and my sister decided to try to have another baby. Today I am still amazed at her strength and courage.
Unfortunately after multiple rounds of IVF treatments my sister was unable to become pregnant.
Infertility is emotionally and financially draining. Feelings of shame, frustration, anger, resentment, and a host of other complex emotions often time result in anxiety and depression. Individuals and couples feel alone and incompetent.
After the passing of my nephew twelve days after birth and watching my sister struggle with infertility, I have wanted to offer support and guidance to individuals/couples struggling with infertility and/or the loss of a child.
Infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth or loss of a child shortly after child birth is devastating.
