Canadian Infertility Awareness Week

I was just watching tv when I saw a commercial recognizing that this week is Canadian Infertility Awareness Week!   In a Infertility Awareness Association of Canada’s 2007 press release they said that “no fewer than 17% of Canadians – over 700,000 couples- are unable to achieve a pregnancy naturally and suffer from infertility during their childbearing years…. of that number only 22% of couples receive the medical assistance they require.”  That number is huge!  My heart goes out to those who share in the pain of infertility.
