Keiko’s Journey of Infertility Empowerment
It all started on March 18, 2009: the day I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure. A few weeks later, I began my anonymous infertility blog, Hannah Wept, Sarah Laughed. When my What IF: A Portrait of Infertility video went viral within the online infertility community, I began blogging under my real name and renamed my blog. Read my full bio here.
Since then, The Infertility Voice has expanded into an online empowerment resource for infertility patients seeking support, compassion and hope along their family building journeys. Everything you read here has been my personal journey to reclaim my identity in the wake of my infertility diagnosis and to share that knowledge with others.
- Infertility is a life-altering disease.
- You deserve respect, dignity and compassion.
- Your emotional experience is real and valid.
- All infertility stories matter: including yours.
- You have the right to equal access to care.
- Family-building must be grounded in ethical care and practice.
- Hope is not a four-letter word.
The Infertility Voice seeks to free infertility from cultural shame and silence and to catalyze an inclusive, compassionate and respectful dialogue about infertility as a disease.
At its heart, The Infertility Voice isn’t just one voice: it’s about all of our voices, experiences, stories and journeys.
