Beverly Barna is a distinctive writer whose personal journey resonates humorously and profoundly
with other infertile women.
While working as a marketing executive and columnist, Ms. Barna coped with her beloved
father's failing health and confronted the deep pain of infertility. Within months of her father's death, she suffered the
first of three miscarriages.
Writing "Infertility Sucks!" became her therapy, with the goal of turning
private anguish into triumphant comedy. Other infertile women, transformed by the book's unfailing good humor, urged her to
go public with her story and her gift, so that her wit, perspective and gentle flights of fancy could help others in "keeping
it all together when sperm and egg stubbornly remain apart."
Author and columnist Beverly Barna is highly
regarded for her uproarious writing, including her popular Palm Beach Post feature on infertility and adoption, "Oh Suzanna
- One Family's Journey to Parenthood," which has been one of the Post's most frequently requested articles.
From "Divine Secrets of the No-No Sisterhood" to the "Guaranteed Epidrual-Free" Epilogue,
Ms. Barna doles out enough humor to keep you laughing through any cycle.
Ms. Barna is also the founder of NATIONAL INFERTILITY SURVIVAL
DAY®, the Sunday BEFORE Mother's Day, celebrated annually, the first Sunday in May annually, to raise awareness
of of infertility and related issues.
