Welcome to Über Barrens Club


1 in 6 couples experience infertility: but amongst them are those whose journeys can be longer, more challenging, and more unsuccessful than others. 

We're not just infertile. We're really, really infertile. We're barren.

The hidden community of women supporting each other through these journeys is full of incredible wit, humour, and kindness.  And amazing, heartbreaking, inspirational stories.  Stories that don’t get told, because everyone only wants to hear about the success stories.  

So I decided to change that.

It’s such a comfort to hear from others in the same boat - I just feel more lonely as the months roll by. This is exactly the place I need to call home right now: somewhere I can be honest about how shit it is.

Über Barrens Club: Sisterhood, Solidarity & Support
Stories from the Club No One Wants to Join


This book has 3 main aims:

1

TO TELL A DIFFERENT STORY

To change the narrative around this subject.  

To share real women's stories: that acknowledge the ugly, weird - and often distressing - truth about experiencing infertility and/or pregnancy loss.

As well as the amazing camaraderie and friendships found along the way.
 

2

TO CELEBRATE MY FELLOW ÜBER BARRENS

To celebrate the sisterhood, solidarity and support fostered by this community of sensational women - and the men who go through this journey with them.

To pay tribute to the magnificent wit, dark humour, and extraordinary bonds that are formed with people you’ve never met, but who know exactly how you feel.

 

3

TO PROVIDE SUPPORT

And hopefully in doing so, to provide support to anyone else going through what can be a living nightmare - and to help them feel less alone.
