Long Road to Baby
This is L'Oreal's story. "We hadn't budgeted for IVF—that wasn't for normal, everyday people. That was for celebrities! In that moment, our hopes and dreams of becoming parents were just dashed." L'oreal did all the things she was supposed to do—download the trackers, time intercourse, take care of her mind and body... and still, it wasn't working, and as a Black woman, she faced hurdles feeling heard and validated. For years, she and her husband tried to grow a family, and after finally finding a doctor that would listen, things started to click. L'Oreal definitely fought for the family she has today.
