Michelle Obama's recently released memoir promises to give one behind the scenes watching life in the White House and how it really feels like America's First Lady. But in Becoming, released on November 13, she also personally receives her pregnancy, miscarriage and final decision to use in vitro fertilization, commonly known as IVF, to become daughters of Sasha and Malia.
As BBC reports, reveals Obama's sincere memoir that she suffered a miscarriage before she got her daughters. Discuss the memoir on Good morning America, Obama says that one of her goals is to open the conversation about fertility.
"I felt like I failed because I did not know how common miscarriage was because we did not talk about them," says the former First Lady. Suitable, she hopes to change it: "I think it's the worst we do against each other like women, do not share the truth about our bodies and how they work," she says.
She emphasized the loneliness of the fertility struggle – which she hopes to lose by being open about her own struggles. "We are in our own pain and think in some way we are broken," she explains. The silence and stigma must move, and Obama says "it's important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriage occurs."
Her own fertility story is changed when she was 34 and realized that "the biological clock is correct" and "egg production is limited". She chose in vitro fertilization, which led to her two daughters being born. But even that road was not simple – when Barack joined the civil servant, she had to administer IVF shot herself.
We know how history ended for Obama's: with Sasha, Malia and the White House. But for the whole story – and especially for people who are fighting for fertility today – Suitable sounds like your winter has to be read.
