Khloe Kardashian and Giuliana Rancic have both publicly gone through something so many women do not want to openly discuss: infertility. Many suffer silently. So, Babble.com decided to bring this seemingly taboo topic out into the open in a new e-book called Parenting Uncensored Straight Talk from Real Moms and Dads on Getting Pregnant.
One of the bloggers featured in the e-book is Mara Kofoed. She’s been trying to get pregnant for nine years. She’s tried everything. We’re talking acupuncture, Chinese herbs, vitamins and even a psychic. So far nothing has worked. But Mara has learned some valuable lessons along the way and feels like her infertility is a blessing. She is currently doing IVF, but says if it doesn’t work then she and her husband will consider adoption.
Raising America’s Kyra Phillips also experienced the trials and struggles of infertility. But with the help of amazing doctors and four tries of IVF she gave birth to healthy and happy twins more than two years ago.
