Blessed Brokenness has changed its name to Carrywell and launched Carrywell Groups and Grants.
The faith-based organization supports women and couples struggling with infertility by offering support groups and financial assistance for medical treatments.
Support groups meet weekly for about 10 weeks. Registration for sessions beginning in September and November is open. Visit www.Carrywell.org.
The women-only version of the support groups are based on the book “The Hannah Anointing.”
The organization began in 2018 with one Birmingham-based group for women and now offers groups for women and couples in 16 states.
“The path to parenthood can be challenging, so providing support through our faith-based Carrywell Groups, financial assistance for fertility treatments through our grant program and Invocell partnership, and additional services are crucial resources for couples facing infertility and loss,” Executive Director Mallory Wear said in a statement from Carrywell. “Although our mission remains the same, our heart is to meet people where they are, cultivate and grow relationships and reach those near and far who are on their journey to hope and healing in a hard-to-navigate season.”
Invocell is an affordable in vitro fertilization method that is one-third the cost of traditional IVF.
Carrywell is working to raise more than $75,000 for grants to provide financial assistance for fertility treatments to conceive.
The organization also offers a grief grant program, in which it has partnered with Christian counselors to offer discounted sessions and priority scheduling for those who have lost children, according to its website.
