One in Six – ABC Compass
June 12 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm
One in Six, our gritty, ground breaking documentary will be broadcast nationally on ABC’s Compass on Sunday 12 June, 6:30pm. The film draws its title from the one in six couples in Australia who experience infertility and follows AJFN couple Janine and Shimon on their complete IVF journey as they face the challenges of IVF during COVID with A/Prof Gavin Sacks of IVF Australia as their Infertility Specialist.
For those who have been through IVF, we are right there with Janine and Shimon for the retrieval, the moment their little miracle is created, the embryo transfer and the agonising wait for the phone calls from the clinic to tell you how things are progressing.
And for those who haven’t experienced infertility, it gives a frank and intimate insight into the journey. We all know someone who has struggled to fall pregnant, but we may not understand their experience or they may have chosen not to share their difficulties. Through Janine and Shimon’s bravery and openness, we can offer support by better understanding what they are going through and bringing the conversation into the open.
The film was watched by over 2,000 people online at AJFN’s major event in November 2021 and we are expecting audience of 250,000 this Sunday 12 June on ABC TV. This will go a long way in raising awareness around infertility and opening the national conversation, so that anyone dealing with it feels less alone.
