Invisible people: A story of fertility treatmentand loss during the pandemic

Abstract

This account of fertility treatment during the pandemic weaves autobiographical narrative with empirical evidence to show how infertility and loss is experienced by women in the modern workplace. It charts my experience of fertility treatment during the lockdown of 2020 and draws on recent studies to highlight the psychological impact of infertility, the impact it has on work and career, and the stark absence of workplace support. By offering an in-depth portrayal of fertility treatment, I hope to not only to raise awareness about the experience but also explore the interaction between infertility, health, and work, and how this has changed—for better and worse—during lockdown.
