Fertility Awareness Week 2020

Every year we bring awareness to fertility issues during Fertility Awareness Week. This year, we want to hear from you. We are conducting a fertility awareness survey, this will look at perceptions around fertility issues and if those going through fertility treatment share with  friends or family.

Take the survey here

Although many more people are sharing their stories of fertility treatment, there are still many that don't. They feel that they could be judged or are embarrassed. Fertility treatment can take such a toll on your mental health, it is important that you share the  load and get support when you need it.

Many people do not realise that some of the comments they make can be quite hurtful to those undergoing treatment. We want to shine a spotlight on this, we will be using the hashtag #bekindwithyourwords during Fertility Awareness Week. This is an important movement.

Would you like to share your story?

Would you like to share a comment or a video on your experience of going through treatment? 

If you would like to get involved in any way please email faw@sims.ie
