But the screams of frustration from not being able to have a child are just as loud.
YET THEY’RE NOT BEING HEARD
I'm a transdisciplinary artist currently in my final year of a master's degree in Visual and Media arts and Feminist Studies at the Université du Québec à Montréal. I'm also an infertile woman, who with my husband, went through 5 cycles of IVF and 2 inseminations and never became pregnant.
