Laura Henshaw shares a candid message about infertility and the pressure to have children

Laura Henshaw has revealed that the only question she’s tired of hearing is when she’s going to get pregnant.

The fitness guru, who recently married her partner Dalton Graham last November, made the confession Friday in a post on her Instagram.

“I’m often asked this and wanted to kindly remind you why I’m never asking this question of anyone again,” Laura, 28, began in a series of slides of written text.

The co-founder of Keep It Cleaner pointed to issues women face with infertility, the constant worries she has about her “fertile window,” and the decision not to have children.

“If we want children, it doesn’t mean we can,” she continued. “Unfortunately, infertility is much more common than you might ever think.”

Laura contrasted how there is a ‘fear’ of getting pregnant at a younger age with a ‘100%’ certainty that you’ll get pregnant when you’re older, but when you’re in your twenties there’s ‘not a 100% chance’ of getting pregnant.

“At an age when we are still ready, we have yet to think about what our plans will be, because there is a certain fertile period.”

Laura then questioned her own fertility, saying it’s something she worries and “thinks about often.”

‘What if I wait too long and miss the window? And then I wish I’d started sooner.’

“I hope to have children, but I don’t know how fertile I am – I’ll have to wait and see,” she added.

The fitness influencer then sheds light on the decision not to have children.

“There is so much societal pressure to follow a certain path in life – finish school, go to university, get married, have children, etc. The best thing about your own life is that you get to choose.”

She concluded the post: “I think when people hire, it becomes difficult for those who don’t feel like there are children in their path.”
