Facebook Fertility Pages You Should Like

By September 6, 2010

Follow me on:

Facebook can be a frustrating place to hang out when you're dealing with infertility. When you're surrounded by fertile friends and family, the pregnancy announcements, new baby pics, and baby shower invites can hurt. And if you woke up to a negative pregnancy test, only to read on Facebook your cousin whining about her morning sickness? Ya. It can suck.

But you can add some fertility friendly (and infertility compassionate) voices to your news feed.

First, add us! You can now "like" About.com Fertility on Facebook. I try to post new blogs, articles, and reader stories when I can, and you may even get to read them before they hit my newsletter. I don't post too often, so don't worry -- your news feed won't get overwhelmed.

After you've liked us, I recommend a few other fertility friendly facebook pages:

For a laugh, be sure to like 999 Reasons to Laugh About Infertility. Some of her posts made me cry, I laughed so hard.

For support and advocacy specifically targeted for the African-American community, like The Broken Brown Egg. (This is not just for African-Americans though! Whatever the color of your skin, I highly recommend liking the Broken Brown Egg! Always good articles and interesting discussion there.)

Are you a member of the Silent Sorority? That is to say, couples who remain childless after infertility? Be sure to connect on Facebook to this  very much needed resource.

And last, but not least, make sure you like RESOLVE's facebook page. RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association, will keep you up-to-date on advocacy news, and of course share fertility tips and coping resources.

Is there a fertility friendly facebook page or person you'd like to recommend? I know there are many more. Please share in the comments below the name and link, so people can find them and "like" 'em!

PS. Don't forget to like us before you go!

slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and can damage your high-quality

more of your respective exciting content. Make sure you update this
