Baby after fertility loss
[00:00:00] Fertility patients, meaning anyone who's gone through trouble getting pregnant, gotten pregnant, gone through pregnancy loss. And then finally gets pregnant and gets to have a baby. This is the hardest part in way cuz not only are you anxious during your whole pregnancy because of any of your past, but once your baby is born, you feel this pressure.
And I know this from my own experience to just relish every moment because this is all you've ever wanted. And I'm gonna invite you and offer you to resist that urge because it will only lead to more hardship. You are going to. The moments that you can relish and you need to be able, just like any other patient who's having a baby, to be able to say, this is exhausting and I don't love every second of it.
And that's not to say that you're not so appreciative of everything you've gone through. And that's not to say that you're not deeply excited to herald this little child into the world. But at three in the morning when that cherub is crying, you [00:01:00] might not feel so excited and that's okay. So don't allow yourself or society who tends to put these feelings into our mind of guilt or anxiety or upset that in that moment.
All you want is to sleep and maybe wish that that little baby wasn't next to you. It is. Okay. I am telling you that I think many of us feel it, and I wish we did a better job at telling fertility patients or recurrent miscarriage patients about it so they don't feel so bad.
