6 Easy Steps to Writing a Letter to Your Uterus...and other Infertile Parts

I came across this site and thought..... What a refreshing twist on trying to get the word out for IF... I have to share!!! 

The premise here is that writing can be very healing for the infertile soul.  Don't feel pressured to have to publish this to the entire Internet.  You may want to write the letter and get everything out on paper and then rip it up!

Here is a snap shot of the steps...  Visit the site to get the full commentary (I got a chuckle) on each step and submit your letter to your most (or least) favorite part!

6 Easy Steps to Writing a Letter to Your Uterus and Other Infertile Parts

1) Sit down
2) Pick your preferred writing utensil
3) Start with a Heading (Dear Uterus.. Hello Follies.. etc.)
5) Sign it.. or NOT
6) Slap a Stamp on it OR Email it!! (or maybe not...I added that part because I do think it is healing to just write the words to free yourself)

My letter may say something like...

To Whom (or what) It May Concern,

I am not exactly sure who or what is in charge around here.  I would love to know what is going on.  Are there any more good eggs in there or are they all cracked and broken?....

As I said in my previous blog I took "The Pledge" Last Night... "You don't need to donate lots of money or time to advocate for infertility. Just find a way that fits into your schedule to show support in YOUR own way!"  How can you give IF a voice?

With lots of hope and maybe even a :-)


  1. This is such a good idea, even if it feels silly at first. Actually it's probably useful for any physical situation that makes us feel out of control. When you're struggling with infertility there is almost always some anger in there that we may not even be in touch with....the letter idea is a good way to let those feelings surface.

  2. Hey Hey,
    I stumbled over your blog today and I just had to tell you I'm enjoying your blog. Your awesome. I became a follower and I'm looking forward to keeping up and leaving comments. I hope you will check out my blog, and become a follower. I have a button, and I'd like to add you to my blog roll. I hope you have a lovely weekend. God Bless You and Yours


  3. I am following you also... I am glad you like it!

  4. Hi there
    thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I wanted to let you know about that award that you commented on. This is something that was generated in the IF blogging community itself. I do not think it is something that is really kept track of. we are nominated by a fellow blogger and then pass it along to other bloggers as a way to recognize and support each other.
    I hope this helps and makes sense. Please feel free to ask any questions, happy to help if I can.
    wishing you the vey best of luck.
