After numerous conversations with women who have walked the IVF journey, experienced challenges with infertility as well as miscarriages; sharing with women who decided to postpone pregnancy for whatever reason; recognizing women were suffering in silence and were unable to find a space to have safe conversations regarding infertility with family friends or at church; and realizing the black community is not having real talk about infertility and reproductive health FERTILITY FOR COLORED GIRLS, INC. (FFCG) was born.
