Sinead Moriarty: New parents should be cooing over baby - not fretting over its gender being 'wrong'
As someone who struggled with infertility, when I read about gender disappointment, I was shocked. How could anyone who was lucky enough to have a healthy baby complain about their child not being the 'right' gender?
Instead of wishing your boy was a girl, or girl was a boy, shouldn't you just be thanking God your bonny baby had arrived safely into the world?
But when I started looking into the whole area of gender disappointment I realised that it's a big issue and many parents really do suffer. It's a lot more common than I thought and the pain is very real for those experiencing it.
