Trying to conceive can be an incredibly emotional journey. In ‘Life Quake’, a viewer is heartbroken – failed attempts and the strain of infertility are threatening to break their relationship. The stress, blame, and disappointment feel overwhelming. Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant gives advice on how they can support each other and keep their love strong.

Teamwork is key

Face this challenge together. You’re BOTH hurting, even if you grieve differently. Communicate openly so you can process it as a couple.

Sensitivity is crucial

Often, the woman going through fertility treatment bears the greater physical and emotional burden. Partners, be understanding and offer support, not just solutions.

Have a backup plan

Start these conversations early. If your main plan doesn’t work out, what other options (like adoption) would bring your family joy? Agreeing on this relieves pressure.

Have YOU dealt with infertility? How did you and your partner navigate this emotional challenge? Please share your advice in the comments!
