After undergoing several rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and taking fertility pills to try to get pregnant following a miscarriage, finally got pregnant.
Inspired by a viral photo posted the fertility clinic of Sher Institute last year, Rodeffer put her own success story on social media. She decided to model her pregnancy announcement after the viral photo. She arranged the empty pill bottles and syringes in the shape of a heart, and positioned a photo of her latest sonogram and a onesie with the words “Worth the wait and wait and wait” inside in an Instagram photo.
Her photo too, posted a month ago actually, has gone viral now that a bunch of media outlets are finally reporting about it.
“I was adamant that my announcement not only show my joy and thankfulness, but also the struggle that it took to get there,” she told Inquisitor. “I wanted to acknowledge the struggle that anyone dealing with infertility goes through.”
