Dream, Redefined: The Struggle and Success Through Infertility as a Woman of Color
Hitting at a flashpoint moment in history, Dream, Redefined focuses on the unique perspective of women of color through infertility diagnosis and treatment. Candace Clark Trinchieri provides a powerful voice for minority women and shines a light on the distinctive struggles and barriers they face when it comes to infertility.
Raw, non-clinical, and with a touch of humor borne from pain, personal and identifiable narratives, Dream, Redefined: The Struggle and Success Through Infertility as a Woman of Color dives deep into the cultural impact of infertility, pregnancy loss, the struggles of being a WOC in the medical system, lack of representation, and support and resources.
Most importantly it amplifies voices and drives forward the personal stories that have been lacking in discussions of infertility. Rather than searching for a final answer, Dream, Redefined seeks to re-center the common narrative and help women find peace and resolution wherever the journey to motherhood takes them.
Candace provides a comprehensive resource-list for minority women seeking answers, solace, community, and family building alternatives.

“For generations, women of color have gone through life dealing with pain and suffering alone and nowhere to tell their stories authentically. Society has attempted to silence those stories for far too long. Just as my podcast provides a safe space for truthful storytelling, Dream, Redefined dares to bring change.” -Monique Farook | Infertility and Me podcast
“Dream, Redefined highlights voices of women of color, yet this is a book for all women struggling with infertility.

In short, it’s the book for which I had been searching and never found.” -Jessica Weinstock | The B(e)ARING All Project
