Q:

How do I turn off baby-related ads on Facebook?



A:

Experiencing infertility or loss is hard enough without the reminders and triggers that seem to exist everywhere.

If Facebook is pretty sure that you want to see endless parenting-related ads and it's not what you want, you can adjust your ad settings. This isn't a perfect solution —and it won't stop pregnancy announcements or baby updates, but it's something.
