When the author was diagnosed with infertility, she made a decision most individuals who cannot naturally conceive rarely do: she took a break from “trying” and began to write about her experiences. During this time, she met another infertile woman who also was also taking a pause from fertility treatment and using art as a method to cope with her recent reproductive loss. This multimodal essay narrates the artistic journey these two women embarked on and illustrates how art became a tactic to counter more dominant narratives of infertility.
