One in 6 couples struggle with infertility, with those affected feeling sad, frustrated and worried nearly all of the time and 42% had experienced suicidal feelings. Understandably this is having a significant impact on the emotional wellbeing of people at work, and workplace productivity.
A study of 900 women going through IVF by the Fertility Network showed that:
- 85% of women felt that treatment affected their day to day work.
- 58% reported that work affected their treatment.
- 59% felt their employer would benefit from education to help them understand the needs of someone having treatment.

IVF Positivity Planner
Offer the IVF Positivity Planner to each member of staff when they tell HR or their manager that they are starting fertility treatment. It is a coaching journal to help people cope through treatment and manage the emotional triggers that the infertility creates.
