Do you have friends or family whom you suspect may be navigating infertility?
- By message: A message on your preferred platform to say “hello” every so often can go a long way in making someone feel that you care.
- By phone: For some, a quick phone call may offer an important connection, particularly if this is the way you usually engage.
- By sending a card: Sometimes a card with your heart-felt message can be held and re-read privately and is greatly appreciated.
- In person: Invite family members and/or friends to birthday parties, get-togethers and Shabbat or Yom Tov meals as you usually would. However, if they say they are not up to joining, allow them to make the decision for themselves, accept their reason, and do not make them feel guilty for opting out.
