Truth Behind Infertility & How to Overcome the Obstacles
In the past, infertility has been a taboo subject.

Although it may at one point or another affect up to 10 percent of women, they often feel ashamed or unable to talk about it.

This has resulted in misinformation and poor communication around the condition, as well as depression and anxiety-producing stigma for women who experience it.

Counselor Rebecca Glavin shares some infertility myths, as well as how to deal with the emotional difficulties that come along with struggles to conceive.
