Shine Together: Virtual Support Call
Oct 25 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Shine Together Conversations are monthly group support phone calls where members can connect and talk about a topic related to their fertility journey in a confidential format.

These calls will gather the expertise of the women who are Shine Fertility members – people like you on a fertility journey who have experiences, tips, and ideas to share. We’ll use only first  names and ask everyone on the line to respect the confidentiality of their fellow members. The calls aren’t recorded so you just have to be there to participate.

We hold calls on the last Wednesday of the month at 8 PM CT.

Our next call is October 25 at 8 PM CT and we’ll leave the topic open for participants to share what’s closest to their heart.

Join the conversation with your questions, recent story or situation to share, or reason to celebrate and we’ll surround you with support, love, and encouragement. The conversation will cover any myriad of topics the group chooses but we’ll all leave a little smarter, a little more empowered, and a little more connected.

Shine Together Conversations are planned and moderated by Erin McDaniel of MyFertilityCoach.com.

Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples, totaling 7 million people, yet over 60% hide the fact that they are struggling with infertility, and only 5% of patients use the psychological support services their clinic offers.

Shine is a nonprofit organization that supports women through their fertility journey by providing free mentorship, support and education to empower and promote a proactive approach to fertility through women’s health. Shine is a unique community where members come together to support one another while celebrating successes and battling the challenges of fertility. Its three core programs take a holistic approach to fertility by offering social, emotional and educational support to individuals and couples during their fertility journey.
