Oova 101: How To Be Your Own Advocate

How does advocacy relate to fertility? 

Advocacy is an important part of fertility to ensure you're getting the care you need.

"Empower your fertility story with clarity and confidence," Lauren Haring, fertility nurse and the founder of Embrace Fertility, says. 


How to be your own best advocate

Haring shared a couple of tips for how to best advocate for yourself along your fertility journey.
