This is National Infertility Awareness Week. NIAW is a movement founded in 1989 by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. Its mission is to empower you and change the conversation around infertility.
All too often myths and misinformation appear in media stories or influence lawmakers and companies to enforce policies that create barriers for people who need help building their family. And still people feel isolated when they struggle to build a family, so we want to empower them to share their stories and find a community that cares.
When the community comes together and talks about National Infertility Awareness Week, we will:
- Enhance public understanding that infertility needs and deserves attention.
- Ensure that people trying to build a family know the guidelines for seeing a specialist.
- Educate lawmakers about how infertility impacts people in their state.
