Wear the pineapple pin!!
By wearing the pineapple pin, you are bringing awareness to what is still to this day a subject spoken about in whispers. The badge isn’t about labelling yourself as someone who has been though IVF; it is about showing how common infertility is, and offering comfort in numbers.
1 in 6 people globally struggle with infertility. If you can imagine, on that packed carriage of let’s say 100 people, approximately 16 of those people will be struggling. Add to that, their partners and family or perhaps a friend whom they have shared their struggle with. That figure now jumps to roughly 50. That’s half the carriage who understand how emotionally draining infertility really is. Now do you feel alone?
The pin is for everyone who has experienced infertility, whether first hand, or by supporting someone. The pin says ‘I understand’ ‘I support you’. ‘I am here for you’. ‘We are stronger together’. Imagine getting on that packed train and seeing a sea of pineapple pins. Imagine catching someone’s eye and knowing that they get what you are going through. Imagine the strength that would give you…
