What Not to Say to Someone Struggling With Infertility

What Not to Say to Someone Struggling With Infertility
We've all been in the position at one point or another where we have a friend going through tough times and we're not quite sure what to say. Sometimes we give unsolicited advice or offer what we think are helpful thoughts. Even though these words (most often) come from a place of genuine support and care, they can inflict unintended pain. It's really hard to find the best way to connect with or show love to someone going through something you've never gone through.
