Couple's Photo Series Somehow Makes Infertility Absolutely Hilarious
Back in April, it was Infertility Awareness Week - a topic we wouldn't usually cover, as there's nothing funny about that, right? Wrong, if you've read this blog by now mum-of-two Whitney, who decided to use her experience of not being able to conceive to educate other people in the same position.
She hoped to get them talking and maybe even get a laugh or two. What she didn't expect was the outpouring of emotion and solidarity her darkly comic photo series 'Infertility Announcements' would provoke.
In a post on her blog entitled ‘How I Feel About Infertility Now (As a Mother to Two Boys)‘ Whitney details years of unsuccessful fertility treatments, which eventually led the couple to adopt two boys.
"Infertility used to be such a consuming part of my life. How could it not be? Between monitoring my temperature first thing when I woke up in the morning to sometimes daily doctors appointments… between the charts, kits, pills, drugs, and tests… between other people’s baby showers and pregnancy announcements…
Between the frenzied hope and desire at the beginning of the month to the acute heartache and despair at the end of it, it’s kinda hard to forget even when you’re trying not to dwell on it."
So, they tackled the situation the only way they knew how - through lols. Have a flick through the photos Whitney and her husband Spencer knocked up (sorry) and you'll be inclined to agree, laughter really is the best medicine.
