People have been drawn to stories for as long as there has been language; sharing stories can foster connection, understanding, and healing. Family building can be complicated, messy, and sometimes heartbreaking. But those who are faced with fertility and family building struggles do not always have the opportunity to share their stories.
The act of telling your journey without interruption, whether or not you have reached your destination, can help reclaim and reframe your story. Sharing your struggle amongst peers, who understand the intricacies of family building challenges, can be a cathartic and powerful experience.
RNE is excited to host free, virtual Family Building Open Mic Nights, facilitated by RNE volunteers, to provide a welcoming, confidential space for our community to come together and bear witness to each other’s stories.
- The number of participants will be capped at 6 to allow each person a full, uninterrupted 10 minutes to share their story.
- This event is open to all who have lived experience with fertility and family building challenges, regardless of where you are in your journey.
- Please note these events are not recorded or available after the event to protect participant privacy; all those who wish to join should plan on attending live.
Pre-registration is required and we kindly ask that you register at least 3 hours in advance of the event start time to ensure that your registration is received and processed in time.
