Fertility Challenges Peer Led Support Group — Do you feel lonely and isolated? Feel like you have very few people to talk with about your infertility or feel no one understands? Is your partner the only one who provides emotional support? Do you feel like everyone you know is pregnant or has children?
You may find it helpful to turn to others outside your immediate circle. A support group can help you feel less isolated as you make connections with others on a similar fertility journey. This is a great opportunity to gain emotional comfort and moral support. Feel free to bring your partner as many couples attend the group together.
We meet bi-monthly, the second and the last Wednesday of each month from 7 – 8:30 pm at the office. The meeting on the last Wednesday of the month will have a different topic and frequently there will be a guest to co-host. If you are interested in finding out what the topic will be for the current month, please check our Facebook page and like it to get updates each month. The second Wednesday of the month meeting will be an open forum setting, without a topic.
Hope, Healing and Inspiration!
This group is free of charge. If you are interested and looking for additional information or if you are interested in on-line support, please contact Tammy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quote from a couple that has regularly attended group:
There are so many things I have learned from all of you. But mostly I wanted to thank you for changing my life. 1 year ago today my husband and I were sitting at home waiting on the IVF drugs to show up. We had so many fears (of needles, of it not working, of the side effects) and we had NO ONE to talk to. We honestly don't know how we did it without you. Then it didn't work. BOOM talk about rock bottom and with no one to talk to. Certainly no one that understood our pain. I hate that we have all walked the walk...but there's no one else we'd rather have next to us. Thank you for changing our lives.
