This week Resolve The National Infertility Association brings to light National Infertility Awareness Week. “National Infertility Awareness Week®, (NIAW) is a movement, founded in 1989 by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. Its mission is to empower you and change the conversation around infertility.” Through this week Resolve empowers people living with infertility to share their story and their experiences to expel any myths and misinformation others might encounter. Here are a couple of ways you can support a friend living with infertility.

Learn more about infertility

Stay educated with research so when your friend wants to talk about their experience you’re caught up to provide as much support as possible.

Keep them in mind

Don’t forget about your friend during the holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. These are the days that will hit them the most. They’ll appreciate that you’re still thinking about them.

Be there

They might not ask for it, but they will need you. During difficult doctor appointments or treatments, knowing they have a friend will mean the world.

Support your friend in along their infertility path, to lend an ear and accompany them as needed.

Show you care

At the end of the day, your friend just wants to know you care and are there for them.
