NIAW-National Infertility Awareness Week

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:

We here at Monterey Bay IVF feel no one should walk alone.
