Make your voice heard this NIAW

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.
