David and Courtney Cox-Arquette: They went through several miscarriages due to immunity problems. They also went through IVF before they had their daughter Coco.

Helena Bonham Carter (LOVE her) and Tim Burton: They tried Clomid and IVF along with some alternative medical treatments before their baby was eventually conceived naturally.

Jane Seymour: She had multiple miscarriages and infertility treatments before having her twins. She’s also written a book about it.

Audrey Hepburn suffered multiple miscarriages.

Brooke Shields and her husband went through more than one IVF cycle, their first resulted in a miscarriage. They did eventually conceive through the process but she’s spoken out quite a bit about it, I believe that she has written a book as well.

I think Celine Dion had fertility issues…..her husband had the problems. They went through several rounds of IVF to have her first son, then froze the embryos and got pregnant, miscarried, and then had her twins.

@Running Elley:  Brooke did write a book, I believe called “Down Came the Rain” about her struggles and her post-partum depression. I’ve always wanted to read it.

I can’t think of any new ones, but I remember reading The Help and it tore at my heart reading about Celia for some reason.

Guiliana is so wonderful. I love reading about her. I so hope they are able to have a baby after she is well again. She is a great example for women everywhere of stregnth, being proactive towards health, faith and determination.

Khloe Kardashian has said in interviews and on her shows that she’s having trouble (sorry to all the K haters :P) but I haven’t read anything about her trying IVF… I know some people don’t like her but I sort of feel for her because she is going through this very publicly AND having to see gossip magazines saying she’s pregnant when she’s not.

I also love reading about Guiliana as well. I think that not only is she such an incredibly strong woman, but Bill is an amazing husband as well. They truly love each other and it makes me so glad that they found each other. It’s hard enough to have to go through infertility treatments, but to go through them publicly is even harder. I really admire the two of them.

Don’t know if there are many how I met your mother fans but they had an episode about robin thinking she waspregnant by barset and then being told she had some issue that would make itimplausible to conceive. I actually really liked the episode since it dealt with how someone who didn’t necessarily want kids felt about being told she couldn’t

@Moja Milosc:  I feel especially bad for Klhoe because her sister just seems to blink and get pregnant.

Meri Brown from the reality show “Sister Wives” has a teenage daughter and had a miscarriage a few years ago, and those are the only pregnancies she has had despite trying for more children. The most recent season finale ended with her sister wife, Robyn, offering to be a surrogate for her.

I really felt for Charlotte in SATC. Felt like she REALLY truiy just wanted to be a mother. It’s like she wanted this more than anything in her whole life. Since maybe even SHE was a kid. And I felt for her because she would/did make a great mom. (At least in the show!) And she was being deprived of motherhood. The worst was when she went to someone’s baby shower and that lady ‘stole’ the baby name that Charlotte wanted for her kid that she would have had one day. Cry
