Huge day out there for fertility news, conversations, and issues.
A small recap:
Egg freezing - is the conversation piece in the media today. Facebook and Apple offering to allow women to shift some of their fertility/surrogacy benefits to use for egg freezing instead. Amazing. More to follow tomorrow, promise, including our lab at RMACT adding their expertise.
Personhood legislature - in Colorado and North Dakota. Yes, about embryos. Conferring personhood on embryos, why we should all care, whether we live in those states or not. Look for it on Friday.
October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month - How many of us out there feel this one deep down into our very souls? A beautiful piece to read and share, please: "The Loneliness of Grief" from The Broken Brown Egg. Rocked me at the same time it comforted my heart.
