What's the best way to support them? To let them know you care without overstepping?

To sympathize while encouraging hope? It isn't always easy or obvious, especially since infertility isn't something that's often talked about. This video, created in collaboration with a panel of individuals struggling with infertility themselves, aims to shed light on how the loved ones of those struggling with infertility can best provide support and comfort.

I have a lot of friends who mean well, and they just keep saying it'll happen...I just don't know what they want me to say to that… I feel like if I talk to them about it, they're just gonna be like, ‘Oh just stay positive’.
