Fertility Support Group

The Christmas period with its focus on children and family events can be particularly stressful. Our December group meeting, without a speaker, is an opportunity to share coping strategies and gain support from others that understand what you are going through.

Please note the revised date of 13 December

Our Fertility Support Group, held virtually, is led by our independent fertility counsellor, Jackie Stewart, and members of our Bourn Hall family.

Joining this group gives you the opportunity to talk to other people experiencing infertility, with members supporting each other on what can be an emotional journey. The aim is to create a safe and confidential space to talk freely.

To achieve this, we ask that you join the meeting with your camera on so that you’re visible to the whole group and can talk and support each other,  also that you participate from a private location. Do take a couple of minutes to read the group’s helpful information and ground rules here.

Held monthly using Zoom, for approximately an hour and a half, we invite experts to speak on a range of topics that reflect the needs of individual members.

The group offers:

● Free attendance for all experiencing infertility – Bourn Hall patients and non-patients
● Guest speakers
● Facilitated meetings with Question & Answer sessions
● Caring, supportive staff
● Opportunity to meet other people who empathise
● Helpful information
