In the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated every year on the 2nd Sunday of May. This day is meant to celebrate all mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and women who participate in a role of a mother in any form. The tradition was first thought of in America back in the 1800’s, when a woman named Julia Ward Howe organized a day that was meant for women to come together and discuss achieving world peace.
Did you know that every year states around the US organize special events to raise awareness about infertility? This year (from April 23-29) -- and this week in fact -- there will be art shows, book launchings, awareness walks, happy hours, meditation circles and more, all focused on spreading knowledge about infertility and the treatment available.
