Accepting Infertility

Accepting Infertility

Starting a family isn’t straightforward and according to statitistics, one in six couples struggle with infertility.

Sarah-Anne and her husband Adrian thought having kids would be easy and were delighted to get pregnant soon after deciding to take the next step. Sadly four miscarriages later, the couple have now come to terms with the fact that they won’t be biological parents.

Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley wrote about her experience in the Irish Times and she shared her experience with Ray this afternoon.

Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley’s article‘Words in my life: Miscarriage, IVF, bleeding, guilt, sympathy, anger, grief . . . and hope’ is available to read on
