Did you know that 7.3 million people in the United States are affected by issues of infertility but black women are twice as likely as white women to experience these issues. Still, black women are less likely to seek treatment, according to experts.
“Popular culture may portray black men and women as hyper-fertile, baby-making machines,” Rev. Stacey says. “But the reality is that many of us are suffering in silence trying to conceive and we don't have anyone to turn to.” Fertility for Colored Girls is unique because it offers a holistic approach to fertility infertility: expert advice of nutritionists, obstetricians and gynecologists address the biological solutions; adoption agencies and family planning experts address alternative options and a prayer/support circle available for women and couples address the issue from a faith perspective.
Join us this week as we talk with the organization creator, Rev. Dr. Stacy Edwards-Dunn, who not just knows about the subject, but along with her husband have experienced this process in their lives, and are now providing hope for others. Call in, join the conversation and investigate some solutions you might not knew were available. That is this Tuesday night at 8:00pm on Healing and Hope for the Heart!.
