Fertility Logia: Don’t give up!
Time for this month’s Fertility Logia! Fertility testing and treatment can be very stressful. In fact, one study found the stress of infertility was close to that of a cancer diagnosis. Support from your partner, your family, and your Greek-American world can make the difference in having the tenacity to see the journey through to victory. Interestingly, since the process tends to be overwhelming, many people will stop care before they have a chance to find success. Therefore, it’s critical to keep peace in your heart and believe in the end goal. Meditation and prayer can be very powerful, along with love from your Greek family to encourage you on this journey. In this month’s Fertility Logia, we provide 10 must-know quotes to help you through. Print and save this list — and refer to it often. Don’t give up on your dream of a family!
