NIAW: Advocacy

We’ve loved sharing stories and hearing our community’s stories during NIAW this week. Now that the week is coming to an end, we turn to what can we do as a community to advocate for those with infertility?

There are many ways to get involved, and some are as simple as sharing your own story on social media, or educating yourself about reproductive health. Starting or joining a peer group for infertility is also an important way to gain and give support, while building community awareness.

There are also good organizations out there that provide services for families facing infertility. This June 25, the RESOLVE: Walk for Hope will take place in south Denver, creating awareness and building community for the thousands of people affected by infertility in Colorado. IHR.com (Infertility Resources) has a page linking to some of the other prominent organizations supporting those with infertility.

Do you have other ways to support and advocate for those facing infertility? Please let us know in the comments. We’d love to share them on Facebook and Twitter @trachmanlaw
