Actionable Steps:

Recognize that the stress and frustration of infertility hinder your ability to get through the little relational bumps.  If you are going through fertility challenges and you’re thinking there is a strain on your relationship, stand in front of each other, hold hands – look into each other’s eyes and say in unison, “Together we will get through this too.”

Your marriage matters. Your relationship matters. This is a small hump in your road. Reaffirm the support you have in one another. You are not an island.
