"Being childless not by choice is the taboo subject of an unrecognised minority. World Childless Week is there to help the cnbc: validate their emotions, find support, build friendships, realise their own worth and find the confidence to speak out and celebrate their uniqueness. The gap that exists between parents and the childless community needs to be bridged and our grief needs to be recognised and respected."
"It's important to dispell the myths like 'just adopt' and to have honest conversations about infertility. I believe that respectful exchanges between those who can have children naturally and those who can't, gives context and truthes to the statistics. World Childless Week is a critical part of this movement."
"One of the many hidden difficulties of involuntary childlessness can be social isolation. World Childless Week, by bringing together so many different people and organisations amplifies our voices and efforts; in doing so, it makes it more likely that someone struggling in silent grief finally discovers that they're not alone. The lifesaving and life-changing power of connection cannot be underestimated."
"Male infertility is the side of infertility that's not spoken about. I would like to see a day when men can talk over a pint about infertility without feeling judged, as I've been able to. World Childless Week is a great way place to start getting that support."
