National Infertility Awareness Week

This week kicks off the National Infertility Awareness Week  and I'd like to take a moment and send out positive thoughts and prayers to all families who are facing infertility. I've spoken with numerous women who've dealt with this issue and my heart goes out to all who are fighting and hoping for their babies. Below is some information provided by the group, Resolve, to help families who are dealing with infertility issues, and to also break down the myths that surround infertility.


RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, established in 1974, is a non-profit organization with the only established, nationwide network mandated to promote reproductive health and to ensure equal access to all family building options for men and women experiencing infertility or other reproductive disorders. RESOLVE improves the lives of women and men living with infertility.

One in eight U.S. couples of childbearing age is diagnosed with infertility. RESOLVE addresses this public health issue by providing community to these women and men, connecting them with others who can help, empowering them to find resolution and giving voice to their demands for access to all family building options. RESOLVE is a member of the National Coalition for Oversight of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (NCOART), the National Health Council and is a founding member of the International Federation of Infertility Patient Associations (IFIPA).
