One in eight couples in the US have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. My better-half and I are one of them. Being the nerd that I am, the moment we launched “Project Baby”, I began to research the hell out of it. I talked to doctors, read books and articles, and googled anything that you can think of. I also found an incredible community of people who are going through similar things and are lending me support online every day. It seemed almost unfair to keep all the knowledge I accumulated to myself, and that’s how The Modern Belly got started.
Sharing is Caring
Infertility is so widespread, yet so little talked-about. Women and men all around us are struggling in silence – because they want privacy, because of a sense of social taboo, because they feel no one will understand, because of shame, because the heartbreak is just too much for them to handle in public. Here at The Modern Belly, we believe that by writing about infertility, and by sharing our own experiences and the obstacles we faced on our path to parenthood, we can help others feel that they are not alone and raise awareness among the general public.
So what is The Modern Belly all about?
The Modern Belly is your resource for all things fertility. Our goal is to be a source for high-quality information on your journey to building a family, and hopefully provide you with some comfort and a small online community while we’re at it. We are guided by three fundamental tenets:
Information – Providing a trustworthy, up-to-date knowledge base for fertility and family building
Innovation – Introducing you to new ideas and breakthroughs in the fertility world
Inspiration – Building a community to support us all on our journey to parenthood
I’m excited to have you join us, and I hope you will find The Modern Belly helpful and engaging!
