My guests for
this show were Pamela Tsigdinos, author of Silent Sorority and
Stephanie Baffone, a therapist who made the decision to live child
free after years in infertility treatment and has counseled with
many others facing this decision. We focused on those who are
involuntarily living child free because infertility treatment
failed. Topics included:
It's hard to find a group that you fit
to be satisfied with your life when you are settling for something
you didn’t want
you’ve made the decision, how do you answer the question of
how many kids do you have? How do you handle the “fishing
expedition” when you first meet people and they are trying to
figure out why you don’t have kids
not choose adoption?
to navigate the decision to stop infertility treatment and
acceptance of a new life plan as a couple and what to do it you
to find a therapist that specializes in infertility
do you get past the feelings of envy bordering on hatred for those
who have children?
Infertility doesn’t end with the baby
