Utah Infertility Resource Center was founded by Camille Hawkins in September 2015. Earlier that year, Camille and her husband attended the Footsteps for Fertility 5K event in Salt Lake City. As Camille connected with others impacted by infertility and spoke with the vendors at the event, Camille’s suspicions were confirmed—Utah’s Infertility Population was being under-served.
In 2010, Camille was diagnosed with unexplained infertility and felt completely and utterly alone. She remembered seeing a Facebook post from a Jr. High acquaintance about her infertility journey. She reached out to an acquaintance, M'Recia Seegmiller, the only person she knew of who was facing the same issue, to see if M'Recia knew of any infertility support groups. M’Recia invited Camille to join the Utah Infertility Support Group —a online group dedicated to infertility support.
