The Motherhood Café - Understanding Infertility

  • Webster 150 Linden Avenue Lynchburg, VA, 24503 United States (map)

Infertility is defined as the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse. An estimated 1 in 8 couples experience infertility and although infertility is common, people often struggle silently. Infertility should not be taboo. We owe it to ourselves and our friends to learn about it -- and talk about it! Our panel will consist of women who have (or are) experiencing infertility, as well as fertility experts. Let's help to eliminate the stigma and bring light to this issue.

Our programs are FREE and OPEN to the public. See details below for information regarding our FREE childcare, up to age four.

As always, we will also be broadcasting via Facebook Live!

Our Cafe mornings close with peer-led small groups on Pregnancy/Birth, Infancy (0-6 months, 6-12 months) and Parenting. During small group time, we are often able to offer Care Group for those walking through infertility, miscarriage and child loss.

Children under one, can stay right with you. For children between the ages of one and four, we offer FREE on-site childcare.

---Childcare slots are limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis. Childcare reservations will be accepted no sooner than a week prior to a Cafe event and can be made by e-mailing childcare@themotherhoodcollective.org with the following information:
