Pinnacle Fertility Joins National Infertility Awareness Week to Raise Awareness and Empower the Infertility Community

"Infertility impacts 1 in 8 couples in the US. The chances that you know someone experiencing challenges on their journey to parenthood are pretty high. Yet the stigmatism surrounding it is still pervasive. Many of our patients struggle with this grief and isolation while navigating a complex journey. By promoting awareness and support, we are helping our communities feel empowered during this monumental, yet sometimes difficult life experience," shares Andrew Mintz, CEO of Pinnacle Fertility.

Throughout NIAW, Pinnacle Fertility and its network of clinics will be taking part in NIAW activities to increase awareness of infertility, break down stigmas and improve support for the infertility community. Physicians from each fertility practice within the Pinnacle network including Advanced Fertility Care, California Fertility Partners, Dominion Fertility, Institute for Human Reproduction, ORM Fertility, Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility, and Santa Monica Fertility are speaking up to support those struggling by sharing what #InfertilityStrong means to them via personal videos. Pinnacle's network will also be engaging on social media lifting up voices from the family building community and sharing how #WeCanAll raise awareness and support the infertility community. Pinnacle Fertility clinic team members will wear orange on Wednesday, April 27th as part of NIAW's #WearOrange campaign to spark more conversations about the disease that impacts 6.7 million people in the US each year.
