9 strategies to survive baby showers when you have infertility

I’ll never forget arriving at a baby shower (and sorry if you’ve heard this story before) and seeing that I was one of only three women who either weren’t pregnant or had kids already.

One was Veronica, an acquaintance who declared that her life was too full for kids – between their travels and their foodie life and her role as a teacher, she just didn’t have the capacity for kids.
