Friends with an Infertile Couple

Being a good friend to an Infertile can be quite hard at times; in fact it's not an easy job at all. This job has boundaries--the job of being a good friend to an infertile can be very busy and very demanding at times; other times you will sit the sideline and be forced to be the 'outsider' looking in. When you decide your ready for this venture; take it on full force--but beware that it will be difficult.

Infertiles come in all shapes and forms...yes they can all be categorized as the classic 'infertile couple'' however variations will exist. You will have your pessimist, extrenal or internal optimist, your newbie who is just starting out, the friend in denial...your long term friend who might be highly involved can be a tricky one to master--be sure to handle this one with care..., you have the old timers who've been doing this so long it just becomes part of who they are and the ones who are so bitter you might want to engage with caution...

Glad you posted this. The one we did last year I think was a little more opinionated, but this one is to the point and great for people to read!

Very well said. I think it should be printed and handed out to "fertile" couples, so they can gain a little perspective on our lives and journey. I know they mean well and they aren't intentionally trying to say hurtful things, but like you said "you haven't walked in our shoes."
Thanks for sharing this!

Sorry I'm just curious-what does ART stand for? It's in the 4th bullet from the bottom-starts with DONT....I thought I knew all the abbreviations by now after reading this long!
