One in six couples across the globe are affected by infertility
Think of your friendship group and there will probably be at least one who has experienced some turmoil when it comes to having a family.
It is so much more common than you think, but what we don’t do enough of is talk, communicate, shout or scream about infertility.
We tend to hide, shy away and avoid telling even our closest friends about what is going on as there is a sense of shame, taboo or embarrassment about the situation.
This is why World Fertility Day is so important
It is 40 years since the first IVF baby was born and the world of reproductive science has moved positively forward with new enhancements and innovations.
But emotionally things have faltered.
We need to be more open about infertility, we need to educate about infertility and we need to change how people think about infertility.
It happens to many of us and behind closed doors there are thousands of people in a heart-breaking situation they feel powerless to express to others because of a fear of being judged.
This has to change.
World Fertility Day is about communication, education and empowerment
We plan to host a series of events during the day and evening to get people talking openly about their journey to help raise awareness and inspire others.
And we want you to join us
If you’d like to host a coffee morning, a tea party, a #ttc lunch or dinner party on November 2 then please get in touch to register.
