If you or someone you know has experienced infertility, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 1 in 8 couples struggle with infertility, and the emotional toll can be immense. That’s why it’s so important to have organizations like RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
RESOLVE was founded in 1974 by Barbara Eck, a woman who was struggling with infertility and found there was no support available to her. Since then, RESOLVE has grown into a leading nonprofit organization that provides support, education, and advocacy for those facing infertility. Here are just a few of the organization’s achievements:
Advocating for infertility coverage:
RESOLVE has been a leading voice in advocating for insurance coverage for infertility treatment. As a result of their efforts, 19 states now have laws requiring insurance coverage for infertility treatment.
Creating educational resources:
RESOLVE provides a wide range of educational resources to help people understand infertility and the treatment options available. They offer webinars, support groups, and publications like their popular “Family Building” magazine.
RESOLVE has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about infertility and its impact on people’s lives. They organize events like National Infertility Awareness Week and the Walk of Hope, which bring people together to raise awareness and funds for infertility support and advocacy.
One of the most important services that RESOLVE provides is support. They offer online and in-person support groups, a helpline, and an online community where people can connect with others who are going through similar experiences.
Advocating for the rights for people with infertility:
RESOLVE is committed to advocating for the rights of people with infertility. They work to ensure that people have access to the treatment options they need, and that their reproductive rights are protected.
