EWING, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--First Response™ remains committed in supporting RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association’s 2020 National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), a week-long movement from April 19-25 to change the conversation around the challenges 1 in 8 couples face in building a family. With so many live events cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19, First Response™ and RESOLVE understand that support for the infertility community is needed now, more than ever; emphasizing the use of new online resources – digital webinars, online support groups, and a giveaway of trying-to-conceive JourneyBox kits.
"First Response™ remains steadfast in our commitment to provide essential resources, education, and products that assist women and couples on their pregnancy journeys," says Eileen Hsu, Director of Marketing for First Response™. "We are honored to continue to partner with RESOLVE as NIAW empowers and unites those dealing with infertility - making their voices heard."
During NIAW, First Response™ and RESOLVE will utilize both Instagram and virtual support groups as platforms to engage the community. Beginning on the first day of NIAW and continuing until the in-person support groups can resume, RESOLVE is providing two virtual support groups each week to help those in need during this difficult and uncertain time. These virtual support groups serve to amplify shared stories, connect with the community, and increase awareness around challenges to family building and share resolution methods.
Those who register for support groups or sign up to receive updates from RESOLVE’s e-newsletter during NIAW and through Mother’s Day will have the opportunity to be eligible to receive a free Journeybox kit (while supplies last and subject to terms). Up to a maximum total of 1,000 Journeybox kits will be given away. Be sure to follow @FirstResponsePregnancy and @Resolveorg for updates and more information!
Journeybox, created by First Response™, is a specially curated at-home kit providing helpful information and products for those planning on starting a family. The box includes a First Response™ Early Result Pregnancy Test, vitafusion™ PreNatal gummy vitamins, Pre-Seed™ Fertility-Friendly Lubricant, and the ttc journeybox™ Booklet, written by experts in the fertility field offering helpful advice.
In addition, RESOLVE will be hosting a series of webinars on timely topics. Follow RESOLVE’s Covid-19 resource page during NIAW to view them:

"Let’s use NIAW to raise our voices, talk about the issues facing this community and make sure we continue to support those most in need. We encourage all those impacted by infertility, whether it be you or someone you love, to share your stories. Storytelling is an impactful way to empower others and help shift the narrative around infertility,” says Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “And remember, you are not alone in your infertility journey.”
