RMA’s Infertility Support Campaign Needs Your Help!
Powerless. Exhausted. Ashamed. This is how infertility feels for the men and women experiencing it.
And chances are, you know one of them. It may be your sister, your best friend, your son’s football coach, your hairdresser, your dentist. It could even be you.
Every year across the U.S., 1 in 8 couples experience infertility. The issue may be related to the female, the male, or both. These people probably won’t announce their struggle, and you probably won’t suspect it, but that doesn’t make it any less real. And it doesn’t mean they don’t need your help.
This year, on the 30th anniversary of National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), let’s show them they are not alone. Your words of support can make a difference today.
Reproductive Medicine Associates, IVI-RMA Global’s U.S. based network of fertility clinics – which includes RMA of New Jersey, RMA of Philadelphia, RMA of Pennsylvania, RMA of Florida, RMA of Northern California and RMA of Southern California – has launched a powerful new video about infertility, and we are asking you – yes, you! – to watch, share and give your words of support today.
Each of our U.S. clinics has a support page to leave words of support for those dealing with infertility:
The video features the stories of real men and women who have struggled with infertility. Like many who have been in this position, these individuals felt overwhelmed, isolated and afraid. This video shows exactly how infertility made them feel.
Now, it’s your turn to share your words with them on our support pages. Our hope is to fill this page with so many messages of support and love from around the country – and the world – that anyone going through infertility today, tomorrow or in five years can go to this page and feel part of something bigger, something warmer and something more powerful than infertility. We want to create a place of inspiration where infertility patients can absorb the support, breathe deeply, and continue their journey.
Here’s how we can make it happen:
Share the below pages with your partners, your family, your friends, your colleagues and your neighbors, and ask them to share their support. Most importantly, please leave a message of support yourself. It can be one word, one sentence, or one long thought. What matters most is that it comes from the heart.
Together, we can bring support to those experiencing this silent epidemic – and it all starts with you.
