Lesleigh Cetinguc saved over 500 vials, tubes, caps, and jars from her IVF treatments to create this breathtaking image. It represents hours of injections, sticky residue from medicine patches, and pills carefully tracked. “What it doesn’t show are the countless doctor’s appointments, my bruised abdomen, our hopes lifted, our dreams crushed and many tears shed.”

How Cetinguc’s journey played out is a testament to the power of women supporting other women on their unique and at times heartbreaking path to motherhood. To that end, she shared a powerful message for others who may be facing similar fertility challenges:

“Listen to your heart and know that you are stronger than you could ever imagine. What is someone else’s path might not be yours. Infertility is a very personal journey and you get to make the call on what you feel comfortable doing going forward. Find a community. Reach out. There is a wealth of support out there and it’s important that you connect with other women who have been there too. Some of the strongest women I’ve ever met have been in the local support groups that I’ve joined and the social media accounts that I’ve connected with. These women have been through it all and are so welcoming when another woman joins the pack. Above all, always remember that you are strong, you are loved.” Via parents magazine
