Last Call for Interviews in D.C. Next Week

A week from now, Advocacy Day will be over. However, your story can be shared to promote #IFadvocacy throughout the year and beyond, by recording an interview for our oral history project. Maria and I are scheduling mini interviews on Tuesday May 10 and Wednesday May 11 and would love to hear about your infertility journey.

ART-of-Infertility-ArtifactThe interviews will be short, about 30 minutes in length including a quick photo session, and we invite you to bring along an object that helps you tell your story. Maybe it’s a photo of the embryo that became your child, the journal you kept, a necklace you bought to remember a baby you lost, or a bill from your clinic. You can read a bit about our sessions at Advocacy Day last year at this link.

If you’d like to share your story with us, please fill out the Google Form found here. After today, we’ll be looking at all of the responses we receive and will contact you with your interview time slots. Due to the tight schedule, it’s likely we won’t be able to talk to everyone while we’re in D.C., but will work with you to record your story at a later time if we can’t meet up next week.  We hope to hear from you and look forward to seeing you in D.C.!

  1. I have two beautiful children that were conceived via iuis and ivf. I have pcos and was told at a very young age (14) that I would never be able to have children. Even at that age, it broke me. It was a cross that I carried all throughout my life. I have so much to say about this and how it changed me, for the good and for the bad.

  2. My story is unique as I started as an adoption social worker, then had my own infertility (a total shock), had 5 rounds of IVF , became a mom to 2 boys and now work at a fertility center. Talk about full circle! My only regret is not going to China to adopt which is something I wanted to do even before I was married !!!

  3. While I am an advocate like many others I am also an advocate because I was once the patient. I worked for a company that managed REI practices had 100% medical coverage but ZERO infertility rider. I would love to tell the rest of my story 🙂
