Infertility at Christmas

Christmas. It’s one of the hardest times of the year with infertility.


I found everything felt magnified at Christmas. The end of yet another year without a baby. It was tough.


I also found it often painful being surrounded by family and friends, everyone with kids. And I would often get bombarded with awkward and insensitive questions or advice.


If you’re struggling this Christmas, please know your feelings are valid and you’re not alone. Lean on the #ttccommunity to get through it and be kind to yourself.





It's also OK to skip a Christmas party. If you're attending a Christmas party, here’s some tips you may find useful:


✨Set boundaries to suit you


✨If you don’t feel like attending an event, don’t attend. Don’t put pressure on yourself.


✨Set time limits for how long you attend an event


✨Have a solid excuse and end time


✨It’s ok to set boundaries and say no to things


✨If you don’t feel comfortable going, don’t go


✨If you get there and don’t feel comfortable, leave


✨Always put your feelings first and be honest with your partner
