With infertility becoming less of a taboo subject, more people are speaking out about their experience with infertility and building their families through Assisted Reproduction Technologies (ART), adoption, and third-party reproduction. Religion leaders are often very respected figures in their communities. Whether they realize it or not, they can often play a role in supporting and educating followers about the infertility experience as it relates to their faith. RESOLVE wants to provide faith-based leaders and members with resources that will help you navigate conversations around infertility and family building.
