Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is committed. We are committed to fertility and infertility information and education.

We are committed to having that information for all, for free and at times that makes it easy to attend.

Why do we do this?

Because it’s the right thing to do.

infertility-support-events-ctUnderstanding your fertility options, your family building options is paramount to making the healthiest and most appropriate choices possible.

If you, a friend, or a family member needs to learn more, RMACT is here to help. Please read through the choices below for the rest of this month and for April.

Free Education & Support Events – Because You Deserve It

We offer a lot because you deserve a lot.

You deserve to know how your reproductive system works.

Please do share this with a friend, colleague or relative.

It’s very hard when we find these things out later than we should and it compromises our family building.

It’s heart-breaking to find out so late that family building becomes almost impossible.

These educational and support events are designed to give you hope.

Hope to see you soon.
