- In an Instagram post, the actress called attention to past fertility struggles.
- At least 13 percent of couples will have difficulty conceiving, according to the HHS.
- Experts think the number of people who have had difficulty conceiving may actually be far higher.
Last week, actress Anne Hathaway announced on Instagram that she and her husband Adam Shulman are expecting their second child.
In the same post, “The Hustle” star also opened up about her fertility struggles, sharing that her path to getting pregnant wasn’t so simple.
“It’s not for a movie… #2. All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies,” the 36-year-old actress wrote. “Sending you extra love.”
By opening up about infertility, celebrities like Hathaway can help reduce the stigma surrounding infertility and remind women trying to get pregnant that they aren’t alone and infertility can happen to anyone.
