Invalidation vs. Support during Infertility
Infertility Says: “Our journey to creating a family has been very difficult.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “Just relax, it will happen when you least expect it.” ✅ Support Responds: “I’m sorry you’re going through this. This is so unfair.” Infertility Says: “We are unable to get pregnant naturally.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “Have you tried x,y,z? Maybe it’s something you’re doing.” ✅ Support Responds: “I am here if you ever want to talk and have someone listen, no advice given.” Infertility Says: “I’m so afraid it will never happen for us.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “You’re still young. You have plenty of time.” ✅ Support Responds: “I’m so sorry. You don’t deserve this.” Infertility Says: “I’m so heartbroken that this hasn’t come to us as easily as it has everyone else.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “Be positive and grateful for what you do have. It could be worse.” ✅ Support Responds: “Is there anything I can do to better support you on your journey?” Infertility Says: “This journey has been very lonely and isolating. I feel like no one understands.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “I know this couple who….” ✅ Support Responds: “I know I don’t understand, but please know I’m always here for you.” Infertility Says: “This has been really hard on my mental health.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “You’re being too sensitive.” ✅ Support Responds: “I hear you. Your feelings are valid.” Infertility Says: “I’m so frustrated that none of our treatments are working.” ❌ Invalidation Responds: “Maybe it’s just no meant to be.” ✅ Support Responds: “This must be so frustrating. I know that you are doing the best you can.”
