Parenting after Infertility
Olshansky, Ellen
Zero to Three (J), v29 n5 p23-37 May 2009
Becoming a parent after experiencing infertility can pose unique challenges to early parenthood. Parents may struggle with the normal anxiety and fatigue, as well as possible depression, that accompany new parenthood, but with added guilt or shame because of how much they wanted a child and how hard they worked to become parents. These feelings can prevent parents from seeking or receiving the support they need. Researchers are just beginning to investigate the implications for parenting behavior and the potential effects on children.
