If you are experiencing infertility and don’t know where to look for help, or maybe you are at the beginning of your IVF journey—you aren’t alone. In fact, 89,208 babies were delivered in 2021 thanks to assisted reproductive technology (ART) like IVF.

We want those experiencing infertility to feel informed, hopeful, and part of a community by learning more about infertility, IVF, and how many people are able to have babies through IVF—(a lot!).
