5 movies about infertility that you have to watch

According to World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, 1 in 6 people have fertility problems. This figure has led to a wide range of movies about infertility.

In this sense, the film industry has taken on the task of portraying different perspectives through stories that allow us to analyze a situation from a different point of view, one to which we should not be indifferent.

These films help raise awareness and educate about a topic that is still taboo in many societies, leading to the normalization of conversations about infertility and other conditions.

In addition to providing hope and comfort to people who feel alone in their struggle for parenthood, these films provide resources and support for those seeking treatment options and advice.

These are 5 movies about infertility that you have to watch:
