Fertility Matters aims to deliver better education on fertility health, before it’s too late.
With fresh and engaging content for teenagers, Fertility Matters is starting a conversation on overall fertility health, ways to keep it healthy, busting common myths and introducing the diversity of families in a modern society.
The information sessions are fit for the classroom and use animation, digital resources and teaching notes designed to have some fun with otherwise awkward material.
