Approximately 1 in 6 couples are affected by infertility and 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or birth.
You only have to start talking about these subjects to realise that many people around you have their own experiences to share. But somehow, these issues still carry a lot of shame, and they remain difficult to talk about.
In this webinar, we talk openly to understand the varied paths to having a child, the effects of fertility treatment on wellbeing and provide some examples of support in the workplace. We also address the different types of pregnancy loss, how it impacts all genders and how to support someone you know that has experienced loss.
This webinar is designed for, and open to, all genders.
This event was hosted by Accord through the Teams platform. Watch the webinar recording below.
