The issue of fertility health is sadly neglected in the UK – despite the fact that most people consider having children as the most important decision of their lives. With the launch of the Women’s Health Strategy, a 10 year plan to better support women’s health, particularly in the workplace, we are in a strong position to move forward in raising awareness of fertility struggles and it’s impact on those who are affected.
Over 3.5 million people in the UK go through some kind of fertility challenge. Nobody should struggle alone.
Whether you’re trying to conceive, going through treatment, or living without children, we’re here to help you.
