“The cultural stereotype of an IVF patient is an older white woman, even though black women are almost twice as likely to struggle with infertility,” says a recent article in The Atlantic. In Michelle Obama’s new memoir, she reveals that both her daughters were born thanks to IVF treatment. Obama told her story to ABC News’s Robin Roberts: “I felt like I failed,” Obama told Roberts. “Because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were. Because we don’t talk about them.”
The article discusses the importance of Obama’s story for the African American community. You can read it on The Atlantic website.
