BONUS EPISODE FERTILITY FEST 2018: The Awkward Language of Infertility

BONUS EPISODE FERTILITY FEST 2018: The Awkward Language of Infertility

‘So, when are you going to have kids?’ ‘Perhaps it’s not meant to be.’ ‘Why don’t you just adopt? ‘Relax and it will happen. My friend got pregnant as soon as she stopped trying…’ 

Why is the language of fertility and infertility so #Awkward (or should that be #Awful?) What can we do to make the discourse better for those people who are struggling to conceive; and for their friends and family who don’t know what to say and do for the best?

 

Artist Anna German and Lizzie Lowrie will be exploring their perspectives on the subject. They will be joined on stage for a discussion by Dr Vivienne Hall Consultant in IVF and Reproductive Medicine at Create Fertility and Omari Biriye and Claudia Davison two of the young people involved in Fertility Fest’s Modern Families fertility arts education project. Chaired by Wellcome Trust’s Farrah Nazir
