Our Mission

Fruitful provides community, education and emotional support to those striving to build their families. Our mission is to help you through your grief, nurture you as you heal and empower you as you move forward.

 
 

Our Impact

Our arms are open to anyone facing fertility challenges, including “unexplained” and “secondary” infertility, IUI and IVF, miscarriages, pregnancy loss, adoption and more. We started this group because we each have struggled with infertility issues in some way. We know how painful of a journey it can be and believe nobody should have to walk it alone. Together, we are stronger.

 

Our Programs

Fruitful provides a safe place to share your pain, joy, concerns and struggles. We learn from others who are experiencing or have experienced similar journeys. To fulfill our mission, Fruitful takes a holistic approach to fertility by offering social, emotional and educational support to individuals and couples.

 

educational events

Fruitful has hosted a number of free educational events with local professionals, including Q&A sessions with a reproductive endocrinologist, an embryologist and a licensed therapist specializing in maternal mental health.
 

social events

Our social gatherings provide opportunities to relax and have fun with people who “get it.” We enjoy dinner parties, yoga classes, paint nights, boat rides, and afternoon BBQs, just to name a few.

buddy system

Fruitful’s buddy system pairs a new member with someone who has successfully completed their fertility journey. “Buddies” provide one-on-one support to individuals or couples, helping to alleviate the emotional, mental and physical stresses associated with infertility. 

 

monthly support groups

We meet monthly to provide peer-to-peer support to women struggling with infertility. Our intimate get togethers may help you feel less isolated, empower you with knowledge, and validate your emotional response.
 

care packages

Fruitful offers care packages to remind our members that they are not alone. From restaurant gift cards and fuzzy socks to chicken soup and aromatherapy candles, our thoughtful care packages are customized for miscarriages, failed treatment cycles, egg retrievals, and more.

awareness events

We are committed to raising awareness, compassion and support of infertility throughout the Arizona Jewish community. In partnership with like-minded organizations, we hosted an Infertili-TEA event, Limmud seminar and Rabbinic workshop.

FROM THE FOUNDER

Going through infertility feels like a lonely, isolating experience. Leaning on friends for emotional support is how I got through it. You are not alone.

Get Involved

As long as there are men and women suffering from infertility, Fruitful will provide needed support, education, and advocacy programs in our community. The journey is filled with financial burdens, emotional rollercoasters and a lack of public awareness and acceptance. With your help, we can change that in Arizona and help ease the pain.

 

SPONSOR A THERAPIST CONSULT

At times, our members need more than a shoulder to cry on; they need a professional consult. For $100, you can gift a session with Dvora Entin, LCSW, who specializes in perinatal loss, postpartum health, infertility and Jewish response.

GIFT A CARE PACKAGE

Whether you know someone in need of a pick-me-up or wish to send a gift anonymously, our care packages are the perfect way remind women, men and couples that you are thinking about them during this challenging time.
