We get it. It can be hard to talk about infertility. Whether you know a loved one who is experiencing infertility or you're having fertility challenges yourself, we know the first words are sometimes the hardest.
This National Infertility Awareness Week, we want to help you start the conversation. Talking openly is the first step to giving and getting love and support from friends and family.
Sometimes Clomid is the best medicine. Other times, a fun ecard will do.
We've teamed up with two inspiring female artists to design a collection of ecards that help you connect with the infertility warriors in your life and let them know you are thinking about them.
Plus, for each ecard sent, Celmatix will donate $1 to a non-profit organization that supports women's health and empowerment, including RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
You. Are. Not. Alone. Talking openly about your infertility experiences may feel daunting, but sharing your story with your friends and family is an important first step in getting the support you need on your journey.
To help you find the right words, we've created a flexible email framework to start the conversation and let your loved ones know the best ways to support you. We also help you guide them on what not to say. Because the truth is, they want to help - they sometimes just don't know how.
About the artists
"After being diagnosed with endometriosis, I’m excited to contribute to a campaign that brings up issues that are usually kept quiet and out of the spotlight. It's important to me to keep the conversation moving and help women find their voices in terms of their own health."
"I’m so happy to be part of this movement of women breaking stigmas and changing the conversations about women's health. My struggle with infertility goes back about four years, and I’m grateful to have found the support network of the infertility community."
Since 1989, National Infertility Awareness Week has inspired a movement to reduce stigma and educate the public about the 1 in 8 women and couples struggling to build a family. Founded by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, NIAW is a time to work together as a community and boldly kick down the barriers that impact millions of people each day.
