Fertility and reproductive health in the workplace remains a taboo. For many employers taking the first steps towards building a supportive, open dialogue and integrated support system for employees can feel like a mountain to climb.
The Workplace Fertility Community needs you!
Fertifa is proud to have founded the UK’s first community for fertility and reproductive health ambassadors in the workplace.
Whether you’re an HR or employee benefits professional, or have an interest in championing fertility in your organisation, join today for free access to peer networking opportunities, a series of educational events and both informal and formal support on the questions you have.
We’re honoured to have a group of influential and inspiring individuals steering the community, ensuring that members gain access to the most up-to-date and tried-and-tested approaches to breaking the taboo, contributing to a truly holistic health and wellbeing ecosystem in the workplace.

The business case for investing in reproductive wellbeing
Author, speaker and fertility ambassador
Employee assistance programmes, private health and the NHS do not provide a solution.
Over 70% of organisations still do not have a workplace fertility policy.
1 in 6 couples in the UK – or 3.5 million people – have fertility challenges and nearly 70,000 IVF treatment cycles are carried out each year in the UK.
1 in 5 women experience miscarriage, 80% of single women suffer from fertility decline simply because they are still to find the right partner, and 30% of all fertility problems are due to male factor infertility.
100% of the LGBT+ group planning to start a family need help to do so.
Proactively addressing employee fertility challenges and providing a solution has many benefits for organisations.
