If there's one positive thing that the hellish year 2018 did bring, it was the fight to normalize infertility. The topic became far less taboo, and celebrities such as Gabrielle Union, Chrissy Teigen, and Kim Kardashian all revealed the many struggles they faced to achieve successful pregnancies. Well, now we have Kat Von D to add to the list of stars speaking out. 

The conversation will forever be necessary. 

Fertility issues in women is nothing new. However, when celebrities speak out about their struggles to get pregnant, it resonates even deeper.
