Jenny Dell has a few words of advice for women who, like her, suffer from infertility.

Dell tweeted a photo of her and her daughter, Madison, who sported a onesie with the quote ‘Started from the Petri, now I’m here.’

“For those out there suffering from infertility, never give up hope,” Dell wrote in a Tweet. “I promise, it’s worth it. She’s worth it.”

Dell and her husband, former Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, welcomed their first child in October. The couple has been very transparent about their struggles with infertility, culminating in her announcement that she was finally pregnant after “two and a half years, 524 shots, over 1,000 pills, multiple procedures, and countless tears.”


Dell’s tweeted prompted an outpouring of support from her followers, with some even sharing stories or photos of their own ‘Petri dish miracles.’
