Why I Opened Up About My IVF Treatment, From Bobbie Thomas (VIDEO)

Beauty and style expert Bobbie Thomas has been undergoing IVF treatments, and decided to share the details of her journey, because she realized that so many women weren't talking about it. "To have the opportunity to try and overcome a challenge like infertility is a privilege," Bobbie says, "and I didn't want to allow myself to feel ashamed about being infertile." As women, we are affected by everything that affects women, and Bobbie feels strongly that women need to speak about this treatment more often, especially since most insurances don't cover it.
