You're Not Alone
Several years ago when I first started my infertility journey, I felt very alone. I had all these questions and it seemed like no one, besides my doctor, to talk to. Over the years, I've become more and more open with people about what we're going through. And to be honest- this helped - a lot.
If you want to talk about your journey, have questions and concerns and want someone to listen and talk to- join our INFERTILITY SUPPORT GROUP.
This support group, led by a professional, offers you a safe place to talk, it will help you feel less isolated, empower you and validate your emotional response to the life crisis of infertility.
We know from research that group support can help people with just about any health problem to feel better. (Domar, 2002, p. 73)

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the commitment? Can I come to one session to try it out?
Even though it is “just” a support group, group members are encouraged to make a commitment to attend the group meetings.
How much do I have to share?
It is normal to feel nervous when first joining a group, but soon you will begin to develop comfort. Sometimes just walking through the door is the most difficult part. Members are encouraged to share but it’s your decision when and how much you like to share with the group. We honor a confidentiality policy in all groups.
Should I also be in individual counseling?
The aim of support group is to complement not replace individual therapy. So, in some cases it is recommended that members receive individual counseling.
