Infertility Awareness Week April 23rd-April 29th!

I’d like to take another brief break from my series on loss to bring your attention to National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW).  I plan to address the issue of infertility and its impact on emotional wellbeing in the next few months, but I wanted to speak briefly on it today in recognition of NIAW.

Infertility is defined as being unable to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. An estimated 15% of couples experience infertility. While there are some known risk factors that impact fertility, infertility does not discriminate.

So in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week consider showing your support for those families affected in the following ways:

  • Share your story
  • Advocate for insurance coverage and access to care
  • Encourage Education
  • Raise Money For Research
  • Attend a walk for hope
  • Sign up for National Advocacy Day and join Resolve and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) as they lobby congress 

Check out Resolve’s Website and ASRM’s site for more information on infertility in general. Information about Infertility Awareness Week can be found here

Stay tuned later this week for an awesome guest post about infertility and yoga.
