Michelle Obama Reveals She Used IVF To Conceive Her Daughters



In her new book, Becoming, former First Lady Michelle Obama shares some of her difficult and often painful struggle to become a mother. She revealed a painful miscarriage and that she and her husband then turned to IVF (in vitro fertilization) to conceive their daughters.

She’s been making the media rounds, talking with major networks and even sitting down with Oprah, about her highly anticipated biography that was released on Tuesday, November 12, 2018.

She speaks candidly of the miscarriage that left her feeling lonely and isolated.

I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” the former first lady said in an interview broadcast Friday on  ABC’s “Good Morning America. ″We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.

When she came to the realization that they would need assistance to build their family, she was 34 or 35. The former President and First Lady turned to IVF and went on to successfully conceive two children. Their daughters, Sasha and Malia, are now 17 and 20 years old.

With these revelations, the First Lady has been actively encouraging women to talk honestly and openly about their miscarriage and infertility struggles and to break the stigmas that keep us quiet about infertility.
