“Infertility feels like a death,” says Melanie Thernstrom in yesterday’s cover story of The New York Times Magazine. “But because it’s not the death of a person but the death of a hope — a fantasy about the children that our dead embryos might have become.” Like so many couples, Melanie and her husband, Michael, struggled for years with infertility. Melanie, who married for the first time at 41, went through six rounds of failed IVF treatments before a doctor told her that it was probably time to “explore other options.” Her heart was breaking and she knew she had to try something else — or abandon forever her dream of becoming a mom to twins.
