Social Media & Online Infertility Resources

I was once asked how I planned a wedding before Pinterest and Etsy were a thing and it made me laugh…and think to myself…how did I survive infertility without Instagram?!  The social media and online infertility support resources, which usually include blogs, are abundant.  I have learned so much from so many in this community and have never encountered a more incredibly encouraging and uplifting group of women.  It literally affords you the opportunity to “meet” others who are or have traveled the same journey and without hesitation are available to answer questions, say an extra prayer, or provide reassurance that can be just what you need to keep the faith.  There’s something so validating in knowing you’re not alone in your feelings and quandaries and if you need answers or support it’s literally a click/post/direct message away. 

Based on my personal experiences and on the opinions of others, I’ve compiled and evolving list.  If you have any other recommendations, please feel free to send them my way at onprayersandneedles@gmail.com.
