Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Inaugural Fall Fertility Week to Kick Off September 21, 2020

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Shady Grove Fertility (SGF), a national leader in infertility and IVF, and home to the largest donor egg database in the U.S., is dedicated to their mission of helping the millions of couples affected by infertility by educating the community about infertility and treatment options.

On September 21, SGF kicks off their inaugural Fall Fertility Week - a virtual event series offering 10 webinars and two Instagram Live events over 5 days, where current patients and those wondering if it's time to see a fertility specialist can access the information necessary to move forward toward achieving their family building goals.

"Infertility is not only a challenge to understand, it can also be quite difficult for many of our patients to discuss, even with friends and family," says Dr. Brad Swelstad of SGF's Fair Oaks and Woodbridge, VA, offices. "Fall Fertility Week is intended to alleviate the fear of seeking help and provide attendees with the information they need to feel confident in taking that first step," adds Dr. Swelstad who will host a Male Factor Infertility webinar on Monday, September 21 at 3:00 p.m.

Throughout Fall Fertility Week, SGF physicians will host informational webinars on topics that include how weight impacts both male and female fertility, egg freezing options, fertility for black patients, LGBTQ+ family building, what to expect when trying to conceive, and much more. Each event concludes with a live question-and-answer session where attendees will have the opportunity to get their questions answered live by SGF physician hosts.

"A more informed patient is a more confident patient, and we feel privileged to educate couples and individuals about their family building options, and ultimately to help them begin their path to parenthood," says Dr. Shayne Plosker of SGF's Brandon, FL, office, who will host a Weight & Fertility webinar on Wed., Sept. 23 at 12 noon.

While SGF fertility webinars are complimentary, interested parties must register to attend by visiting the SGF calendar of events.
