Join the Movement to Show Your Support

Sometimes being supportive isn’t so much what you say to someone who’s struggling, but what you do.

A hug can say more in its simplicity than a whole monologue on how “what’s meant to be will be” and “you’ll be a mother someday, I just know it”.

There are so many ways we can support our fellow Infertiles this National Infertility Awareness Week, and many of them don’t require a word out of our mouths.

For the intrepid few, sometimes a tattoo shows their struggle and their support.  These are mine.

You can update the profile photo on your social media accounts with this Twibbon, showing your support.

You can update your Facebook cover photo with one of these fabulous creations from The Infertility Voice.

You can help to educate others and encourage sensitivity by posting links on social media to information that will help others our struggle.  There is a great article here, and some wonderful tips on infertility etiquette here.

I particularly love infographics like these:

There’s also this cheeky little claymation rendering of What Not To Say To Someone With An Uncooperative Uterus.

You can also share your support on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter by posting, tweeting, or pinning photos and graphics.

You can support, inspire, advocate, and show a great deal of compassion without speaking a word this week.

Maybe give some of these a try:

Do you have a favorite image that shows your support for the one in eight?  Please share it with me on Facebook,  Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest so I can pass along the love.

I look forward to your submissions, and I look forward to being inspired!

Keep up the good work, folks. 

This NIAW, we can  get the word out about infertility, and we can do it as loudly or as quietly as we like!

We can make a difference – Join the movement!
