Tonight's topic was secondary infertility, which RESOLVE defines as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children. Dana was joined by Barbara Collura, who joined RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association in September 2004 as the Director, Chapter & Constituent Services. In April 2007, Barbara was named Chief Staff Officer of RESOLVE. As President/CEO, she represents RESOLVE at a number of national conferences, committees and organizations including the National Committee on the Oversight of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and the National Health Council. As the official spokesperson for RESOLVE, Barbara speaks at conferences and events on a variety of topics related to infertility. Barbara is passionate about RESOLVE's mission as the organization was a source of support and information during her own battle with infertility. Barbara gave us some insight into secondary infertility, and how it affects mothers both physically and emotionally. 

Next up we spoke to Amy Wruble, a parenting writer who contributes regularly to Lifetime Moms,, Momtastic and The Huffington Post. She also blogs at, where she wrote about her struggle with secondary infertility. She is now the mother of two daughters, a 4-year-old and a newborn. Amy told us a bit about her experience with secondary infertility and ways that she overcame the physical and emotional effects of the experience.
