Founded in 1974 by Barbara Eck, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association is a 501(c)3, national patient advocacy organization. Ms. Eck founded RESOLVE because she saw a need to bring together other women facing infertility and she began the first RESOLVE support group around her kitchen table. Today RESOLVE provides free support groups in more than 200 communities; is the leading patient advocacy voice; and serves as the go-to organization for anyone challenged in their family building.

Many in RESOLVE’s community find that becoming a RESOLVE advocate helps them get back a sense of control and empowerment that infertility has taken away. RESOLVE and our advocates work on issues that include: Access to IVF Coverage; Inclusive Benefits; Stopping Adoption Discrimination; Helping Veterans; Protecting Your Right to All Family Building Options; and more. Learn about how becoming an advocate can help RESOLVE remove the barriers so many face when it comes to building a family.

A RESOLVE support group can be most beneficial at certain points of the infertility experience. We offer free in-person (Post-Covid) and virtual support groups for all.

If any of the following statements apply to you, consider joining a RESOLVE support group:

  • I’m feeling lonely and isolated.
  • I have very few people to talk with about my infertility. No one understands.
  • Everyone I know is pregnant or has children.
  • My partner is the only one I have who provides emotional support.
  • Infertility is affecting my work and career.
  • I feel that my life plan is out of control. I’m having trouble navigating through my medical treatment options.
  • I can’t decide when “enough is enough.”
  • Holidays and coping with family and friends are becoming more and more difficult.
