Her first highlight is on Infertility and miscarriages and she discusses suffering a miscarriage.
” It turns out that even two committed go getters with a deep love robust work ethic can’t will themselves into being pregnant.”
In the interview, she stated that she felt lost and like a failure.
” I felt lost and alone and I felt like a failure because I didn’t know how calm and miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them, we sit on our own pain thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
She continues to state that the infertility treatments that helped her conceive daughters Malia and Sasha.
“The biological clock is real because egg production is limited,” she said. “I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF [in-vitro fertilization]. I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work and how they don’t work.”
She also shared details of how the stress of their hectic schedules infiltrated their marriage in the 8 years of Obama’s presidency and how they went for marriage counseling.
