Every year Resolve, the national infertility association, sponsors a week of advocacy called NIAW across the nation. There are many ways that one can participate, from the “Walk for Hope” to actually lobbying in Washington D.C. for legislation that would aid people with infertility.
This year RESOLVE is urging the infertility community to spread the message “You are not alone.” Infertility impacts 1 in 8 couples of reproductive age and can be a very isolating disease to face. Just hearing “You are not alone” can help in so many ways. You might consider tweeting #NiAW and/or spreading the word through Facebook and Instagram with these catchphrases:
- You are not alone. 1 in 8 is someone you know.
- Don’t let infertility leave you feeling isolated.
- You are not alone on your infertility journey.
- Find a support group near you.
- Because no one with infertility should walk alone.
We here at Monterey Bay IVF feel no one should walk alone.
