Chanay Bank’s Bio

My name is Chanay Banks. I was diagnosed with second Infertility in 2014. Currently reside in Maryland. Close to Washington DC. Married for almost a year to my husband we a son and a daughter both from previous relationships. After being diagnosed I under went surgery and had to get both of my tubes removed. At the time I wasn’t honest with myself about how I felt. Since, I was blessed with one child I never wanted to feel ungrateful. Deep down I did long for another child with my husband but didn’t know if I had the courage to go through IVF. Also, IVF isn’t talked about in the young black community. I was diagnosed at 26. Now at 30, We will now be completing our first IVF cycle in July 2018. I want to continue to share and connect with woman. I feel it’s important and no woman should be ashamed.
