Most young Australians want to have at least one baby at some stage. But sometimes it’s not easy. That’s the focus of this year’s Fertility Week. There are many factors that can affect your chance of having a baby, including your age and weight.

Some people also have medical conditions that can make it harder to conceive or carry a pregnancy. If you’re part of the LGBTIQA+ communities, or you want to become a ‘solo mum by choice’, you may need to investigate fertility preservation or donor eggs or sperm to conceive.

From 6 - 12 December, we're telling eight personal stories that highlight some of the challenges people face in their quest for a baby. So, if you want a child in future, learn more about ways to protect and maximise your fertility, so you can become a parent when you want to.
