Often thought of as a woman's condition, infertility affects both males and females. It is a difficult pill to swallow when trying to conceive but is more common and usual than one might think.

Reproductive health is often considered a taboo subject. Not being able to talk openly about this matter makes it harder for women to access critical information and services when they face this situation. The secrecy surrounding infertility can feel like walls closing in, with no way to ask for help. This emotional, physical, and financially demanding process doesn't need to be more challenging.

The misconception that infertility results from poor lifestyle choices instead of a medical condition is damaging and helps perpetuate the aura of shame.

The struggle and frustration that come along the pregnancy journey are expected but shouldn't be dealt with alone. There are solutions available to welcome a child into the world.

Surrogacy, often thought of as the last option, is one of them.
