Lucky Socks

lucky socks

An infertility journey can feel invasive, isolating, and long. Not to mention all that waiting in cold rooms. It's no coincidence that the tradition of "Lucky Socks" has grown in the infertility community.


A simple pair of bright or silly socks can be a powerful reminder that we're not alone in this experience. Since opening our doors in 2015, UIRC had gifted thousands of pairs of lucky socks to those struggling to build their families. Recently, we've expanded our program to also share lucky socks with couples hoping to adopt.

"I had a hysteroscopy to remove some polyps in preparation for a FET. I was having a really stinky attitude about having to do it. I put on these lucky socks that I received from UIRC a few years ago, and my whole attitude changed. I remembered that I'm not alone in this sucky journey."

We happily accept donations for our lucky sock progam. Donate below.
