About Together We Wait
Together We Wait is a thriving and solution-focused community that brings women in IVF together to connect, get curious and create clarity in the IVF process.
Research has found higher rates of major depression in women undergoing infertility treatment and even higher rates in women that have experienced a failed IVF cycle. Many women report a lack of emotional and mental support offered by their clinics during IVF.
Together We Wait provides social connections for women in IVF.
IVF is an invasive, exhausting and expensive process for many women.
Our online community and in person meet-ups provides you with valuable social connections.
Women in IVF report there is a need to connect with "women that understand the ups and downs of the whole process. You can just talk about it and know they get it" - Demetra (TWW community member).
Our community is a safe, inclusive and judgement free space for you to belong and be understood.
We empower one another and give a microphone to the voices of all women in IVF.
We strive for better and integrative care and support for women in IVF.
