  1. I agree with you completely about the support for infertility. Thank goodness for online chat boards which have kept me going in this pursuit. My next step actually is to join a hiking/support group that has been specifically designed for infertile women.

    I also am doing an audio blog, which can be found at my website or

    Thanks for the support.

  2. Vanessa, thank you for your comment. As you well know, it’s so important to feel a connection to others who can relate to you, especially when you are going through a challenging time. I love your blog. I love that you have the courage to share this journey with the world. I know it’s hard and it takes a lot of courage to be so raw and open. Big hugs to you…

    Have you found a hiking group?

  3. thank you maria for opening up this important topic for us to share about. as women, fortunatley, we GET how important it is to connect and surround ourselves with other women. vanessa, the hiking group sounds awesome. i was part of a health center hosting yoga for individuals going through infertility and have always liked the idea of forming groups to support one another and be physical as well. anyone else know of create support groups out there?
