Want to write for FertilitySmarts?
We're looking for insight, expertise, and unique perspectives on fertility health and the process of trying to get pregnant.
We accept both personal reflections of fertility experiences and expert-authored articles that are informative and researched-backed.
Our mission at FertilitySmarts is to offer a community where people with fertility experiences can feel seen and supported. Voices contributions are typically 800-1200 word first-person reflections on the insights and issues you've experienced regarding fertility health or the process of trying to get pregnant.
Your story should have a clear takeaway—something that you learned, discovered or were changed by. We accept guest posts that are unpublished without the intention to publish elsewhere.

- Our Journey to Pregnancy With Donor Eggs
- 7 Things To Stop Doing to Yourself If You're Living With Infertility
Evidence-based information is what we are all about. We collaborate with credentialed experts to bring detailed yet clear information to our audience. The facts are important—analogies, personal anecdotes, and first-person stories can bring them to life! We love to hear from embryologists, reproductive endocrinologists, therapists, fertility nurses, and other professionals working in the fertility space.
In return, you'll be featured as a FertilitySmarts Expert and we'll promote you and your content on our social media channels. Your contributions shared will be shared with thousands of readers who have fertility on-the-mind and we feature a writer's bio to help promote your latest book or project.
We like stats to include citation links and to list any works cited. We accept guest posts that are unpublished without the intention to publish elsewhere. In some cases, we pay competitive rates depending on experience and the work required for the piece.
