In 2020, we proved that nothing could hold back the power of National Infertility Awareness Week®. Let’s do it again, April 18-24th, 2021. Let’s use NIAW to raise our voices, talk about the issues facing this community and make sure we continue to support those most in need.
Anyone can be challenged to have a family. No matter what race, religion, sexuality or economic status you are, infertility doesn’t discriminate.
Together, we can change the conversation.
It begins with being part of a national movement, National Infertility Awareness Week®. This week unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families.
Access to trusted experts for your questions can help you reach the goal of parenthood sooner. Falling down the Dr. Google online rabbit hole can inform but can also cause undue alarm. We want to help! During NIAW 2021, submit all of your infertility questions to our physician team below. Selected questions will be answered on our blog, podcast, and social media channels all week during NIAW.
Don't ask Dr. Google, ask us!

#WearOrange Campaign - Wednesday, April 21, 2021
The color orange promotes a sense of wellness, emotional energy to be shared: compassion, passion, and warmth. Helps to recover from disappointments, a wounded heart, or a blow to one’s pride. Studies show that orange can create a heightened sense of activity, increased socialization, boost in aspiration, contentment, assurance, confidence and understanding.
RESOLVE uses orange to raise awareness, increase activity around an important movement, and remind our community every day that RESOLVE is there for them during the disappointments while educating and promoting physical and emotional wellness.
