it's ok to not be ok.
No, you're not crazy. No, you're not alone.
Infertility affects every single part of your life, from your hormones to your home life. The silver lining? You're not alone. 1 in 8 couples experience infertility and talking to someone who's been through it firsthand can give you much-needed support, guidance and perspective.
1 in 8
1 in 8 couples worldwide experience infertility or struggle to maintain a pregnancy.
Infertility is the 4th most traumatic life event a woman can go through, equivalent to losing her parents.
Infertility adds stress to relationships. Infertile couples are 3x more likely to get divorced.
Why mentorship works
When you sign up to be matched with a mentor, you're getting more than a fertility friend. You're gaining access to an empathetic listener who has been through it and survived! You'll also get:
support from someone who gets it
Our mentors know exactly what you're going through, because they've been there themselves. They just get it.
private convos with a great listener
Chat privately with your mentor through our Fruitful messaging app. It’s easy, intuitive and secure.
one-on-one attention and support
Rather than public Instagram accounts or support groups, mentorship offers you a place to receive one-on-one support.
How much does this cost?
For mentees, Fruitful charges a one-time $49.99 application fee. This fee allows us to properly review every single application by-hand to help make the most impactful, strategic matches. You’ll be prompted to pay at the end of your application.
Be sure to check with your care provider, employer or insurance company to see if they participate in the Friends of Fruitful network to offer this service for free.
