no one should go through infertility alone.

Infertility is dark. Be someone's light.

As you know, infertility is a traumatic life event for many women and men. And because talking about it is still taboo, few people feel comfortable opening up to their friends and family. This makes people like you an ideal, empathic ally for those beginning their fertility journey and in need of emotional support.

Secrets

61% of women going through infertility don't tell their family or friends about this struggle.

Trauma

Infertility is the 4th most traumatic life event a woman can go through, equivalent to losing her parents.

Stress

Studies show that getting fertility treatments is as stressful as undergoing cancer treatments.
