Yesterday on Easter Sunday and during Passover, we talked about a balance during these special religious holidays that may lead us to freedom by the completion of the first day of National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW). We talked about how RESOLVE spoke about how couples can relieve themselves of feelings of inadequacy and shame while experiencing fertility issues and how speaking openly about these challenges and sharing them with others before they are ready may not be the best route to take.
For fundraising purposes for those with infertility, having their coming out parties to speak to family members, friends, and insurance companies, as well as their bosses, can be traumatic when others do not understand their situations and cannot empathize with them.
As suggested by RESOLVE, asking employers for better healthcare coverage to deal with the high costs of fertility treatments, such as IVF, may not be received with open arms, adding to the stressors and stresses for those without coping strategies and mechanisms in place.
I believe, through my own personal and professional experiences with infertility and miscarriages, my private healing began from within on my personal journey with the help of healthcare professionals and trusted family and friends.
Besides suggesting that participants in the #InfertilityUncovered movement should encourage grass root advocacy through self-expression, it was intimated that this would help couples cope better to overcome shame. I suggested that couples should first have these coping skills beforehand to help them become free of the shackles that bind them in society and in their families.
RESOLVE referred to infertility as a disease. I think of it as a dis-ease or a symptom of imbalance that exists, although endometriosis or PCOS are sometimes common denominators in an infertility diagnosis, and treatment may be covered by insurance as a result.
Rather than referring to the terminology of “infertility awareness” I like to think of it in reverse as “fertility consciousness.” I spoke about it on a YouTube video, TV, radio, and on my Facebook page, simply because a reversal in a way you perceive your own fertility could make a difference in the way you conceive a child naturally or with IVF.
These changes in perspectives could assist couples to begin to see themselves and their capabilities of fertility consciousness within their own making as not only unique but holistic in body, mind, spirit and emotion that is aligned with nature.
