Be Part of National Infertility Awareness Week

National Infertility Awareness Week 2021 kicks off on April 18. All of us know someone who’s struggled with infertility -- after all, one in eight couples in the United States report having trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy, and nearly 12% of women have received infertility services in their lifetime.

For the past year, Hadassah has been bringing people together around reConceiving Infertility to raise awareness and confront taboos while driving policy change and empowering patients to advocate for their health.

We're helping our communities expand their definitions of what it means when we talk about family. At the same time, Hadassah medical researchers are finding groundbreaking new ways forward.

To everyone who’s helped along the way, thank you. For those of you who are just learning about the issue, we’re here to help.

8 Things You Can Do Now: An Option for Everyone

1. Understand the issues.

2. Watch and share our reConceiving Infertility videos.

3. Learn more about Hadassah’s efforts.

4.  Read their stories.

5. Share your own story.  

  • Storytelling is powerful. In October 2020, Hadassah teamed up with the Jewish Women’s Archive and Uprooted: A Jewish Communal Response to Fertility Journeys, to create Your Family-Building Story. By sharing stories, we can help break down taboos and help people better understand and support loved ones. Help us build momentum by sharing yours.

6. Advocate for policies that help.

7. Share our social media posts with your networks.
