Motherhood isn’t over when they say it’s over, motherhood is over when you say it’s over.

 

I remember when I was told I didn’t have a uterus and couldn’t get pregnant, that in my mind that meant I wouldn’t be able to experience motherhood should I wish to.  The doctor clearly said, “You can do surrogacy or you can adopt”, but in my head I wasn’t listening to alternative options. In my head I just felt numbness as I tried to make sense of what everything meant to me and to my life. I was feeling the pressure of a society that expects everyone to be thesame, to fit it. I was feeling that motherhood was over even before I had though about whether I wanted it or not.

With time I learned that I could choose a different meaning to my infertility. And that meaning was not the one society had been trying to offer me.

With time I learned that having different options is good. I learned that being open to those options is freeing myself from invisible chains.

With time I learned that motherhood isn’t over when they say it’s over. Instead motherhood is over when you say it’s over. There’s always an alternative plan.

With time I learned to be at peace and trust what’s to come. My fertility plan B.
