I didn’t intend to tell this story earlier, it just kinda happened. I’ve received so many DMs and I was asked to share this as a post, so here we are.
The purpose of me sharing this was not to make Mammy’s feel guilty for not inviting non-Mammy’s into their circle. It’s no ones fault and no one is to blame. We all have so much to do, and have so much going on. We’re all just living our lives and doing the best we can.
I suppose I was sharing for the sake of sharing, because it was a very lonely time, and I felt very isolated. Very left out. I know now that there are lots of you out there that have felt the same way, and so in that..... I’m not alone. You’re not alone. WE’RE NOT ALONE! ❤️💪🏻 It doesn’t need to be such a lonely place.
There are so many reasons women are excluded from the exclusive Mammy club. Infertility is probably the most obvious reason, but it’s not the only reason. More and more I talk to women that for one reason or another have found themselves in their 30s or 40s, single, and without any sign of a relationship on the horizon. These women don’t fall under the “Infertility” umbrella, and they feel a whole other level of isolation. I’ve chatted to women that have resigned themselves to the fact that they may never be a Mammy, and also to those that are ready to explore sperm donation, or egg & sperm donation, or embryo donation. There are women out there that would do just about anything to gain access to the VIP club of motherhood, and women that are grieving the fact that they never will experience the membership.
Whatever your situation, or your particular set of circumstances, just know that as lovely as it might feel sometimes, you are not alone.
Talk, talk, and talk some more. It’s so important that we share, for ourselves and for others. #Motherhood #MammyClub #Infertility #Childlessness #Lonely #Isolated #Fertility #family #parenting #infertilitysupport #sharing #support #notalone #strength #helpingothers
