Why the pineapple?
The pineapple has been a universal symbol of friendship, warmth and welcome for many centuries all over the world, but recently, it has taken on a new meaning. It has become the globally recognized symbol of good luck in the TTC (trying to conceive) community, perhaps because of the warmth, welcome and friendship that the TTC community offer eachother.
All you have to do is scroll through the profile pictures on instagram and Facebook and you will see pineapple after pineapple. You will also see quite a few pineapple print socks worn by women on transfer day!
(Note: There are many discussions about the benefits of eating pineapple when going through fertility treatment. This is however not what our badge represents. It is purely about being the globally recognized symbol of togetherness in the TTC community.)
We can’t think of a better more recognised symbol to represent the amazing men and women on their paths to parenthood than the pineapple.
Pineapple pin badges will be available for sale at the Fertility Show London and from next week on IVFbabble.com and via Amazon.
