National Infertility Awareness Week

2014-niaw-25-image It’s National Infertility Awareness Week.  This year marks the 25th Anniversary and the organization, RESOLVE, is urging the infertility community to spread the message “Resolve to know more.”  They say knowledge is power so please consider how you can learn more about infertility.  You can learn more about different treatments, family building options and the disease in general.  Then you can make better decisions about you and your reproductive health.  And if you’re not personally battling infertility you can be a great resource of knowledge and support for your loved ones.

You can still learn more at Resolve  and of course continue to read my blog for information and laughs.
