“When are you going to have a baby?” can be a loaded, painful question

By Maggie Gillis, CBC News

Stefanie Howell and her husband, Chris, live in the small town of Baie Verte on Newfoundland’s north coast, on a street surrounded by young families.

While they love hearing the sound of children playing outside, it is a constant reminder of the painful journey they were keeping from friends and neighbours.

“I had one person tell me that I needed to have a baby so I could fit in on our street. Like you don’t realize the kind of damage that’s doing to somebody when you make those comments,” said Howell.

The couple has been quietly struggling with infertility for the past three years, going about their business day to day, “hiding and and pretending that everything was OK.”
