I still feel like I’m discovering helpful resources! I have also stumbled across other blogsites and websites which have far, far more detailed lists of useful information than is listed here, but here are a few which I have found helpful. The list is not exhaustive but just a little collection of what has brought my soul peace and joy.

Christmas can be a really difficult time during infertility, when hopes of starting a family aren’t realised and being amongst family feels bittersweet and the ‘brave face’ has to be plastered on. 2014’s Advent series for the RZIM Zacharias Trust by Amy Orr-Ewing really helped me through the month of December as the countdown to the miracle of Jesus’ birth is remembered and celebrated. Well worth a listen at any time of year….The time is now.
