Did you know that 1 in 8 couples are diagnosed with infertility*? This number represents more than a population. It represents a deeper impact that affects the individual, the couple and their relationship. At The Fertility Center, we recognize that the journey through infertility can be very overwhelming. That’s why we want to take this opportunity to invite you to share your story with others who know what you’re going through. We hope you’ll join us in our first ever contest. We would love to hear from you. The winners will be announced on Friday, April 26th, during National Infertility Awareness Week 2013.
