Things You Can Do During NIAW
National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) is April 22nd through 28th this year. Sponsored by RESOLVE, National Infertility Awareness Week is the perfect time to raise awareness about infertility.
National Infertility Awareness Week is a week not just for raising awareness in those who are oblivious to the men and women living with infertility, but also a time to get educated about our options. The more you know about infertility testing, treatment, and coping skills, the better able you'll navigate the infertility maze.
What can you do in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week?
Perhaps you'd like to start an infertility blog. Your blog can become an outlet for your own experiences, but also, it'll help others out there with infertility know they are not alone. Never underestimate the power of your own stories!
(yer, kerana NIAW ni aku buka semula blog ni, tak selesa rasanya berbicara di blog 'public' kerana mungkin ada yg mencebik di kala entry berkaitan TTC dikeluarkan)
You may want to check out RESOLVE's list of seven things people can do in seven days during the NIAW.
Talk about infertility with your friends and family. If your friends and family aren't sure how to respond to your infertility (or others, for that matter), direct them to this article: 10 Things to Stop Doing If You Want to Support Someone with Infertility
Plan to celebrate on May 6th, National Infertility Survival Day! (A bit like Mother's Day for infertility survivors, except having children is not required.) You can also share your dream plans for the day here. (My ideal day - breakfast in bed, dinner at my favorite steak place, and a massage... oh ya.)
If you're a blogger, you might want to consider entering RESOLVE's blogger challenge. The theme is "Don't ignore...", asking bloggers to address in a post (or several) what's being ignored about infertility. Learn how to officially participate here: "Don't Ignore..." Blog Challenge.
