It’s National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), the initiative led by Resolve, the US infertility charity calls on patients to ‘Change the Conversation’. The Fertility Hub has been leading a campaign on behalf of patients to ask IVF healthcare providers to change their conversation with patients. It’s a frustrating time for fertility patients as treatments are currently suspended in many countries due to the COVID19 pandemic.
