TORONTO, May 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Hannam Fertility Centre has launched Fertility.ca, a non-profit online project that educates and empowers the 1 in 6 Canadians who face fertility struggles, as part of Canadian Infertility Awareness Week (May 24-31, 2014). Fertility.ca is collaboratively written by leading fertility doctors, but is translated for the general public — allowing all Canadians, regardless of location or income, to easily understand fertility science.

Dr. Tom Hannam explains: "Fertility struggles can be deeply frustrating and incredibly lonely. You think you're in for an intimate, wonder-filled experience — and suddenly you're plunged into a high-pressure ordeal with a bunch of doctors in white lab coats. These women and couples need tons of insight and support to get through it. However, because fertility science is so complex, patients often find only misinformation or medical jargon."

He continues: "As a fertility doctor, I started wondering if we could help by taking our medical knowledge public. We spent over a year translating fertility science into terms everyone could understand — no white lab coat necessary. By launching fertility.ca, I hope Canadian fertility patients feel better prepared, less alone, and a little more in control of their journey."

Fertility.ca includes:

  • Educational guides for people trying or struggling to get pregnant
  • Doctor-run Q&A blog with questions from readers all over the world
  • Explanations of fertility-related conditions, from diagnosis to treatment
