We at Attain Fertility are so excited to pump up the energy and come together with you, our community, to raise awareness and advocate for infertility. What better way to come together and take action than to link arms and go to DC during National Infertility Awareness Week? Keep reading to learn how you can meet us in DC later this month.
What is National Infertility Awareness Week?
National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) is intended to "encourage grassroots advocacy and motivate the infertility movement," according to RESOLVE: the National Infertility Association, who started the first NIAW in 1989.
When is National Infertility Awareness Week?
National Infertility Awareness Week occurs the last week of April each year. In 2012, NIAW is during the week of April 22-28.
Here at Attain Fertility, we treat every week as though it were Infertility Awareness Week. We are always here to support you whenever you need anything fertility-related or just need a virtual shoulder to lean on.
What is happening during National Infertility Awareness Week?
Attain Fertility clinics, fertility specialists, writers, and community members will be writing blog posts throughout the month in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week.
Stephanie will be running the show over on the Attain Fertility Facebook page, letting you know how you can get involved during NIAW. Can you believe that we now have over 14,000 Facebook fans? Just unbelievable.
