Who We Are

Our Vision

The Australian Jewish Fertility Network (AJFN) believes that no Australian Jewish couple should ever feel alone on their fertility journey. They deserve to have the support they need to help build the next generation.

Our Mission

For those couples struggling to achieve their dreams of having a baby, the AJFN is a beacon of hope, offering financial and emotional support and encouraging open and honest conversations about infertility within the Jewish community.

Why We Are Needed

The AJFN believes every couple deserves the opportunity to create the family they dream of. Sadly, for one in six couples in our community, having a baby involves more than just wishing for one and wanting one. Some need a little extra help.

Why AJFN Are Needed

We all know a couple who has been touched by the struggles of infertility.

No one should ever feel alone on this journey.

From dealing with the emotional roller coaster, the pressure of IVF treatment cycles, friends falling pregnant or the pain of shattered dreams, couples that go through infertility often suffer in silence and isolation. This often compounds their sense of shame, loss and pain. In addition, they can experience immense financial strain due to the expensive and ongoing treatments.

AJFN are here to ensure that these couples never feel alone on their journey.
