Chicago IVF Honors National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW)
Chicago IVF honors this year’s National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) (4/22- 4/28) by expressing our sincere gratitude and appreciation for every patient who has sought fertility care. Undergoing fertility testing and treatment isn’t easy, there are emotional and physical challenges on the road to parenthood, which is why we stand firmly with those couples and individuals seeking care.
How can I get involved in NIAW?
There are many ways members of the fertility community (as well as family members and friends) can get involved in NIAW. Of course, not everyone is comfortable sharing their fertility story, which is 100% okay. It is up to every individual to decide how much or how little they wish to share with the world, but that does mean you’ll be left out.
- Share your fertility story on social media with the hashtags: #flipthescript #NIAW
- Join a fertility support group (in-person, online, couples, men only, women only, single parenting, LGBTQ options exist)
- Attend an NIAW event in your community
- Organize an NIAW event in your community or host a fundraiser
A “Thank you” to our patients
Our gratitude and patient appreciation is exhibited by the Chicago IVF team year-round, but NIAW is a special time for the fertility community. We realize that regardless of whether you face an infertility diagnosis, are LGBTQ or a single parent, there are challenges that stand between you and having a baby.
Our goal is to always decrease or soften these challenges as best as we can, whether through comprehensive patient education that aims to remove the stress that stems from the uncertainty of treatment or through our Financial Advocates who walk every patient through their insurance coverage and can assist with taking advantage of special discount programs or fertility financing.
We hope that you will join us on social media as we continue to honor NIAW in the weeks leading up to the event’s kick off on 4/22. Please “Like” our Facebook page to stay in touch with the practice’s latest news, events, and more.
