Infertility has become quite common among women and this has to be largely blamed on the modern-day stressful lifestyle. However, procedures like IVF make it easier for women to conceive and have biological children of their own.

Even today, with so many well-known fertility specialists and clinics, many are apprehensive to come out in the open and share their problems or seek the right help. One would be surprised to know that significant numbers of women are opting IVF and these include celebrities and renowned personalities. Michelle Obama, the former First Lady of America shares her story of infertility and miscarriage and it would be interesting to look at what she has to say.

In the book, ‘Becoming’, she reveals she struggled with fertility issues before conceiving her two daughters, Sasha and Malia. In an interview with Robin Roberts for a special on the book, the former first lady said she had a miscarriage 20 years ago.

‘I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them,’ Obama said. ‘We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken. That’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen.’

She also said she underwent in vitro fertilization in her mid-30s in order to conceive her two daughters, after realizing ‘the biological clock is real, because egg production is limited.’

Obama told Roberts she decided to tell her story so women know they are not alone if they’re struggling to start a family. ‘I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work, and how they don’t work,’ she said.
