Miracles and Memories (MAM) Pins

Miracles and Memories Family-Building Pins

 Established in August of 2002, MAM has the vision that is affected by infertility and/or pregnancy loss, or the heartbreak of a failed adoption should feel alone or loss of fertility should feel unsupported and no one, no matter how they elect to build their family, should be left out or belittled for their choices.

Miracles and Memories (MAM), is a worldwide, international movement designed to increase public awareness and support patient education and empowerment for infertility, pregnancy loss and adoption. By reaching out through the global community, sponsors, corporate partners and individuals, we hope to raise global awareness for those who continue to suffer predominately in silence, to a higher level of compassion and understanding by family, friends doctors, attorneys and anyone working inside or outside of the reproductive medicine field..

Darla's Story: Our World Turned Up-Side-Down (Czech Republic)

A shrug of the shoulders is all it took to turn our world upside down.

My husband and I sat in our RE’s office, in those plush leather chairs that are supposed to make you feel comfortable, waiting for hope. After four failed IUIs, our IVF egg retrieval had given us nothing to transfer. Nothing grew after the initial fertilization. We were devastated and needed answers. I was 29 years, he was 31. We were young and healthy. This shouldn’t be happening.
Our doctor looked at us from across his desk. And shrugged his shoulders.
He had no clue why our treatments hadn’t worked. Said he would recommend trying again if money wasn’t an issue. It was probably a fluke, especially at my age. But he knew money was an issue, so his next best move was to use donor eggs

Lindsay's Story: Fertility, One of Those Things We Take For Granted

Tablet and Stethoscope Infertility

I feel like fertility is one of those things we all take for granted. We just assume that when we are ready for children that we’ll go off birth control and get pregnant quickly. Unfortunately, our story was a bit more complicated than that.

My husband Travis and I were married in June 2010. We decided to spend a year renovating our house and just enjoying being married before we added children to the mix. I went off birth control in August of 2011 and we started trying to get pregnant.

At first it was fun. I charted my basal body temp, we had lots of sex, and every month I would eagerly await a positive pregnancy test. Months went by and nothing happened. It was around month 9 that I started to worry that there was something wrong. I knew it could take a healthy couple under 35 up to a year to get pregnant, so we pushed forward and continued to try on our own for a few more months..

Alexis' Story: Ectopic Pregnancy and Cardiac Arrest

I was married just 8 months when I found out I was 10 weeks along with an ectopic pregnancy. The embryo still had a heartbeat in my left tube. The surgeon got it out but 2 weeks later, I went into shock and cardiac arrest. What happened is the surgeon didn't get the entire embryo out and my tube never perforated. I had no pulse. No heartbeat. Was found unconscious in my house, alone. I can say I know what it feels like to die. It haunts everyday of my life. Once rushed to ER, they said I had 2 liters of blood in my abdomen from tube not perforating. I needed 2 blood and a plasma transfusion. I had to have my left tube removed and the right one was destroyed from the severe trauma from all the blood in my abdomen...continued
