Infertility Awareness

It is not uncommon for families struggling with infertility to keep their experience to themselves. Infertility can be stressful and feel embarrassing in some situations. For some families, the journey can become isolating due to the privacy choice one may take in their fertility journey. 

When you are dealing with infertility, you often feel like you’re the only one, yet nearly 10% of women in the united states experience infertility and do not speak on it.

We as a community should continue the infertility awareness movement by creating an open and honest dialogue and breaking the silence. Speaking on infertility is healthy and necessary to change how it is perceived. 

Here at The Birth Center, we often see women through their infertility journey and offer our compassion. We establish a plan and refer to infertility specialists. We acknowledge and validate the process of infertility and the overall emotions that come with the process.

Infertility Awareness Week is held April 23rd –  April 29th, 2023.
